Got in a couple rides on Friday. Weather cooperated and it was a great time. Had a minor breakdown or two but crew was efficient in getting it back up. Fun quick ride. SFOG now has a pretty good three-piece in Goliath, Twisted Cyclone and Mindbender.

Honestly, I am not a fan of the RMC trains myself, but their design serves a purpose. How low you sit in those trains gives more security for the riders so it can do the intense maneuvers it does with lap bars.

I went Friday for the passholder preview and was able to ride TC 3 times!!! While it is short when compared to the other coasters at SFOG, it is now my favorite ride there! The RMC makeover turned a very rough and unpleasant ride into a very smooth and completely new experience...the cobra roll and inversions are awesome.

Now, I also took a ride on Scream Machine...hoping the old cyclone trains would somehow improve it....WRONG! I was hurting from head to toe when I got off of the ride. I realize it's a classic for SFOG but I wish they would RMC just the track and not change the ride itself b/c the hills would be awesome if not so rough and bumpy.

Happy Memorial Day!

I agree completely. Scream Machine is absolutely brutal IMO. I compare it to GhostRider at Knott's pre-retrack. But at least there's really only one horrendous coaster left at the park since Cyclone was redone. :b
What is this donkey business?

Just to echo many of the sentiments that have already been shared, I also had a chance to get 2 rides in on Twisted Cyclone during passholder preview day last Friday. Though the footage shot by the park looks very nice, the POV is a complete disservice to this ride. Can’t comment on the back seat yet because the grouper directed my two rides to a middle row and the third row respectively, but I was thoroughly impressed by how great airtime is here. I expected the wave turn to be amazing (It is!) and I expected the two awesome pops of ejector going into and out of the turnaround on the station side of the ride, but what really surprised me was how strong the airtime was in all those little moments after the zero G roll. After the roll, the ride is still hauling and each of those bumps and twists provide the ejector airtime we all know and love from RMC. The end result is that you hit the brakerun thinking OMG WHAT JUST HAPPENED. For me, this ride readily surpassed my own pretty high expectations. Ignore the numbers, ignore the POV (after giving TPR some sweet views, likes, RTs, etc. for the awesome content), ignore the other RMCs opening this year. This ride is fun as hell, feels complete and packed with elements, and marks a huge step up in the overall quality of our lineup. Ride it out! :airtime:

Wow, when you see pictures from that era, you can really see the similarities between the original Six Flags parks (especially in the rides and attractions).

"The Texas." :p

Would Flying Jenny be the same ride type as the infamous Mule-Go-Round?

Alot of people forget that Six Flags Over Georgia was one of the first Six Flags Parks, second only to Six Flags Over Texas. There's so much history behind those front gates and I'm proud to say that it's my home park!

I don't know if i'm the only one who noticed but isn't the Character Clubhouse building next to the Dr. Fright's haunted house the former Freefall ride building entrance?
