Roller coasters? Meh. For a day, Six Flags St. Louis is including sharks. | Entertainment
Injun Joe’s Cave opened at Six Flags St. Louis in 1971, and was described in a Post-Dispatch article that year as “charming” with “funny-looking” frogs and bats, and Tom, Becky, Muff Potter, Injun Joe, and others from the Mark Twain Story. “Of course, it’s really the old Tunnel of Love for those interested in that sort of thing,” commented a rider.
From 1979-1989, it became the Time Tunnel, which took you on a trip through time from the age of dinosaurs to a trip through space.
From 1992-1999, six kid characters took guests on the Castaway Kids Jungle Adventure. It then became Scooby-Doo! Ghostblasters: The Mystery Of The Scary Swamp. That brought the first interactive element to the dark ride, as guests armed with laser guns shot at targets to help Scooby and the gang “catch” the ghosts.
In 2015, the same building was expanded to house Justice League: Battle for Metropolis for a 4-D experience with twisting, tilting cars and laser guns but without the water. (Handout)
