Guests at Six Flag’s St. Louis location can enjoy roller coasters, raft rides, paintball, and now even bowhunting. Officially located in Eureka, Missouri, the amusement park actually owns several hundred acres of prime hunting ground. According to the Eureka-Wildwood Patch, the park had closed its grounds to hunters for the past half-decade. Thanks to the efforts of one park employee, that is about to change.
At a meeting of the Eureka Board of Aldermen on Tuesday, a Six Flags employee presented a letter of permission from the park to hunt on the property. The board found no reason to deny the request.
“We approved the permit for bow hunting,” said Mayor Kevin Coffey. “Just that individual. Every individual would have to come up here and apply, and they have to have permission from Six Flags. They have to show us that they are in in a safe spot, hunting in a safe method.”
