  1. There are pictures on Facebook of the aftermath. Some blood and a woman in a neck brace but it didn’t look that life threatening. I’m sure the park will be paying up for this. The heavy chain was held by a few short rusty screws so it definitely doesn’t appear to have been installed well and the years of weathering seemed to really fatigue it. A good reminder to always overly secure items and have some kind of maintenance.
  2. Six Flags employees now use cell phones as work devices. That’s probably a dangerous thing considering it makes it easier for them to use their own. Regardless, this is more an issue of training and supervision. Cedar Fair parks are overkill with supervisors and basically stopping a ride operation because a random person in the exit area has a question, but at least there is someone in charge and accountable. They measure their hourly capacity. There is a lot more accountability for Cedar Fair operators and that’s why they have better operators, regardless of age. Age has nothing to do wit
  3. How empty was the park? I can only imagine... Sounds like a dream event to go to, especially once the weather cleared up. What were the event hours anyway? The hours were 12-9 Eastern. Honda of Alabama is of course in Central time so 11-8 for us. We arrived at 3 Eastern and stayed till closing. When we topped the hill on I-20 it looked to still be raining on the other side of Atlanta so it had not stopped raining long. The longest wait we had was for Justice League which was about 10 minutes. On every coaster we rode, we stayed on and rode multiple times. Every ride was walk on or one
  4. Very interesting! I found a picture on a discussion group I am in on Facebook. Not sure how to properly credit the original poster but see image below.

  6. Most coasters generally open once the temp reaches 40. It will depend on the crowds though. I’ve seen them close completely with 45 degree weather but I’ve also been on the coasters when it was 30 degrees out. I think it is 40 to open most of them and then as long as the park is busy they will keep them open. I’ve been on Dare Devil Dive at 1am when it was 29 before. It was a particularly cold fright fest Friday.
  7. The park usually opens the second weekend of March and is open on Saturday and Sunday only until spring break for the area. Then back to weekends mostly until Memorial Day Weekend. Daily ops after that.
  8. The forums have died and even Robb/TPR has alluded to it. The new Facebook Groups option is further suffocating out the threads. My only suggestion if they want to “fight” progress is to somehow make the site Google login capable and post social media content that directs to the forum. I remember when there would be dozens of new posts in the forum every hour and now it’s Sunday evening and there have been like 3 in the last hour. Oh well though. I’m still holding out.
  9. Their policy is that the line closes at the park closing time. That being said, I’ve seen them close things off early. Usually not more than 15 minutes early and I think that’s just ride ops making their own call against policy. That being said, I wouldn’t be surprised if they closed off an extremely long line early. Also, if a coaster breaks down near or after closing they usually shut down for the night and send everyone home. This has happened to me many times at Goliath. Sometimes it seemed a bit suspicious like the ops just were not in the mood lol.
  10. I agree that is currently unlikely but Six Flags has experienced so much change I wouldn’t rule anything out. 10 years ago the general consensus was no more big coasters. 20 years ago they were plopping down big coasters all over the place. 30 years ago they didn’t even have that many coasters and when they did start adding more, they would move them from park to park. So who knows, in 5 years we could see anything really. For the time being I would just anticipate medium sized coasters with short ride times, cloned models, or anything you’d call a big coaster on a budget. I’d r
  11. I’m almost positive you can activate at either park and get all your benefits just fine. I think it says that somewhere in the long season pass purchasing page on their site.
  12. Yeah I didn’t pay close attention this morning so I was excited to see a water coaster finally in the Atlanta area, but no. It’ll still be a good slide. Maybe Hurricane Harbor will get one eventually!
  13. Is Python Plunge actually going to be a water coaster or did they just use water coaster footage? I ask because they don’t mention it being a coaster, having uphill propulsion, and they do mention two person rafts. Sounds like a normal water slide with the disc curves...
  14. The only thing Six Flags Over Georgia has done consistently over the past 20 years is built the smallest of everything. I don’t expect that to change. As long as the intensity is there I don’t care but just pointing that out. Our region has little competition so they can afford to downsize every addition. That being said, we have had pretty good additions! I would love to see a launch coaster in our future.
  15. I feel very lucky to have had a great experience visiting New Years of 2017 going into 2018. The place wasn’t dead but was not crowded, the Mexican restaurant over the log flume was really good, all the rides were running, and although rough in a weird jerky way, I thought Desperado was awesome!!! Much better than I anticipated. Really good sudden airtime and a cool layout. It’s too bad the fate of these rides is almost certainly permanent closure.
