Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I remember them sending out a survey about a waterpark expansion and I made sure I told them it was an idiotic thing to do. White Water is an awesome water park...why want another water park? But of course they probably threw my survey in the trash because it didn't agree with what they wanted to do. This is my home park, they need to leave the venue and trash Ninja...seriously. Worst coaster ever!

See the thing is, that if they remove the Southern Star, it almost seems certain that they're going to expand the water park. If you look on a map, the Southern Star is so close to the water park it's like you can jump off the railing in the park and end up on the stage.

Didn't know that Saturday is going to be the final event at their theater. I am actually planning on making the trip to Atlanta this weekend for the six flags celebration. It will be my second trip to six flags GA this year

SFMM's Batman has those too and of course they haven't worked in years either which is a shame as it's a cool effect.

 

The fog came back to the original Batman this year... for it's backwards premier. On media day, they over fogged the place for good photo ops and the "inaugural train" got stuck at the top of the lift. All that super thick fog shut the ride down It was a great view though!

I guess we'll have to wait until August 29th to know for sure, but I'm guessing some slides or other water rides. We want a new coaster, but it does make a lot of sense for SFoG to add some more water attractions. Skull Island is always packed, and the lines are usually pretty long for all of the water rides. Water attractions are also good for families. So it makes good long-term sense, and leaves the door open for a major 2015 coaster!

I would not recommend a Flash Pass at all if you're going in the middle of the week in the summer, or Easter. (Shoot for Easter for sure). Otherwise, if it's a weekend in the summer or any time during the school year (only open on weekends), I would say a gold pass would be pretty good. I usually like to ride multiple times if there's no line to reduce the amount of time I'm walking around and increase the amount of time I'm riding.

My other advice would be to get into the park as soon as it opens and head for DDD first. If that goes quick, go to Superman. Those will have pretty sizable lines all day, even right before they close. Goliath could be hit or miss on a crowded day. Sometimes it's a pretty short wait, other times it's got a jammed queue. Mindbender is probably the single best ride in the park, but there usually isn't much of a line for it. If there is, come back in an hour or two and it should be down to a walk-on. It's kind of strange.

I went to SFOG this weekend and had a great time! Yesterday I attended the sixflagscelebration and it was a great concert and the whole day was a lot of fun. The crowds where very high for the amount of rain throughout the day. Most coasters where 60mins+ on the waits.. From 10 am - 3 pm I was only able to ride about 5 rides.. Gave up and headed to the southern star.

 

Since the concert lasted until after 10 I had got a room for the night. Decided to take a stab at the park again this morning. Great decision. EVERY ride was a walk-on and the ride OPS let us ride several times in a row if we wanted, without getting back in line (Just moved to another seat if someone was in my line). I was so tired at 2 o'clock I called it a day and drove back to Knoxville..

 

The park was picking up momentum when I left at 2 but rides where still walk-ons

 

I was able to ride daredevil dive 3 times non-stop, superman 5 times non-stop, cyclone 3 times, thunder river 2 times (Got a bloody finger on this one! Dunno how), and all the others. By 2 I had rode every coaster in the park multiple times. GREAT DAY! Dare Devil Dive was still a walk-on by 2 which was very odd

 

as for the the southern star area, this is just a stab in the dark, but what if six flags is building a NEW theater area? DONT SHOOT ME YET! The reason I mention this is because they where looking for sponsors for next years six flag celebration during the concert. Does six flags over GA have another area they could even do a concert that big? By the headline show the crowd was over 1,000 People probably a lot more.

 

On a side note, I know the company that put on six flags celebration did it at one other six flags this year so it may have just been a generic announcement and not intended for Six Flags over GA.. I just thought it was worth mentioning

I highly doubt they would occupy all this space with a water park? I mean I could be wrong but I hope I'm right. image_1446.jpg

I see what you're getting at, but they don't have to completely occupy the space. Sure it would be a better use of space if they did, but they don't have to.

One tacit I always use is to go right when I come into the park when it opens. It seems everyone goes left to grab DDD, batman area, goliath and Scorcher. I always go right, like heading to cyclone, and go straight to superman and sky screamer. I did that saturday and it was able to hit skyscreamer, superman, and scream machine all walk-ons. After that I went back towards the frot of the park and 60 min wait on mind bender (Turned out someone got sick which caused the long wait), 1hr and a half on cyclone (Even though the sign said 30 mins!). Pretty much the rest of the day was just walking around. By this time, superman also had 60 + min waits. Thats when I gave up, grabbed food, bought a hoodie bc it was rainy and cold, and then went to southern star where the concert gates opened at 3
