I heard that SFOG cannot have a ride taller than 235ft due to the nearby airport? Does anyone know if this is true or not?

Also heard that the local power grid could not support a launch style coaster. T or F?

^ Yes, Hartsfield Jackson International Airport is 30 minutes away by car.

The power grid might not be able to do a launch coaster due to high demand.

Also, 10 days till SFOG opens!

They can always do the old-fashioned weight drop launch system. ;)

^^ This is also a small airport nearby. Charlie Brown is it's name, I think. It's on the north side of I-20 and SFOG is on the south side a little further west.

In my opinion, the height restriction from the airport has not prevented them in the least from having awesome coasters. Goliath may not be the tallest hyper coaster there is but it is the best of any hyper coaster I have ever been on and a solid ride. I don't think the restrictions would ever pose a problem with them adding another great coaster whenever they decide to.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This has always been my understanding regarding the height restrictions. WOrked there a LONG time ago 1986 and 1987. I remember growing up and going to the park a lot. It seems like they used to get a "bigger" ride one year, then a more family style ride the next and they would kind of flip-flop ride types like that.

I have always loved that park and can't wait for my annual Easter Sunday visit this year!! One month from today!!!!!

There is also the second busiest airport in the United States less than 2,000 ft. away... Fulton County Executive...

And that's how ALL theme parks should operate.

Six Flags could always add some power thing on their park. I'd say a Wind-fan/Solar Panel but people on other forums tell me that's stupid.

Are you talking about Fulton County Airport? It's not anywhere close to being the second busiest... not even in the top 50. It doesn't have passenger flights, just general aviation.
