Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Trip Report: Went to SFOG yesterday for the first time this year and had a great time. Is it just me or are Six Flags employees getting friendlier? I don't even think Walt Disney World employees said "hello" to me as many times as Six Flags did yesterday. It was strange...But a good strange, I guess. Anyways, I have to say that I do not like getting my season pass processed at the front gate. It takes forever to get in the park. They have this whole two step process now that in my opinion just slows down everything. I wish they would just go back to the old system of going through the season pass registration building and it be done. However, I do like the new finger print scan though, I'm sure it will help speed up getting in the gates later in the season so I guess that's good. All the rides were running except for Acrophobia and Ninja, although Ninja did open at the end of the day. Ninja was just running one train and it had a new paint job advertising something. Goliath was running super fast yesterday...Rode it four times, still the best ride in the park...But Mindbender is close second. Didn't get to visit the park last year so I got my first ride on the Sky Screamer...Basically just like the one I rode in St. Louis. I don't know, I may like the Sky Screamers better than the Windseekers...The jury is still out on that one. I really got no gripes at all, the operators were friendly, the park was clean and all the rides were running well...Or as well can be expected. The Georgia Cyclone will always beat the hell out of you, so that's expected. I worry sometimes with the coaster being right in front of the park, it may be the first coaster a lot of people come to that may have never rode a roller coaster before and get scared to death to ever ride a coaster again. It doesn't really bother me, because I can take a beating, but others may not be able to and SFOG may be forever to blame for their fears. But anyways, moving on...Great day at the park, it was a beautiful day, hot and the water rides were cold...just right! One last thing, speaking of water...I don't see how in the world Hurricane Harbor is going to be ready by Memorial Day weekend. They got a crap ton of work left to do in a couple of weeks. Slides still not finished, concrete still not down and landscaping to be done. I hope it's done, I plan to go back Memorial Day. I was against at first, but seeing it all come together, I think it's going to be a great addition to the park.

3 things I would like to note after my recent visit to SFOG:

 

Ga Cyclone in the magic seat really does kick ass (but I still prefer the airtime machine that is GASM)

The ride ops on the go karts stop you at a line shortly after you leave the station, wait for everyone to get to that point, then do a race-style start (which I love)

and best of all: NO MORE STRIDE GUM TRAIN WRAPS ON MIND BENDER!

I went for to this park for the first time ever in april. I did not take any photos so I will just post my thoughts here.

 

Employees were fantastic. There was an elderly gentleman that worked on one of the trams. He was fantastic and was super proud of his job.

 

The park was clean and well laid out. I did not expect the elevation changes whatsoever. Great selection of rides too. I have only been to three six flags parks, and my overall experience here trumps SFA and SFGADV.

 

Scorcher: Super fun. My favorite standup to date.

Goliath: Meh.

DDD: First Eurofighter. Hopefully more of these get build as it was AWESOME.

Batman: Skipped due to time.

Ninja: I have wanted to ride this thing forever. I grew up staring at it from the beach in wildwood. I rode in the 7th car back seat, and it was awesome! No head banging and the butterfly element was very interesting.

Scream machine: The worst wooden coaster I have ever been on. Riders were coming back in tears. It hurt worse than anything I have ever been on.

Mindbender: Perfect.

Cyclone: Wow the first drop and turns were amazingly smooth! The rest needs to get re-tracked ASAP. Fun ride though!

Mine train: Funky arrow transitions in the dark. Surprisingly fun!

Thinks Goliath is meh and GASM is horrible, yet says DDD, Cyclone, and Ninja are awesome.

Get out.

You must've ridden GASM in the wrong seat, it is amazing in a non-wheel seat, and even in a wheel seat, it's better than Cyclone.

I don't even get why Goliath is meh compared to DDD, did you get them mixed up or something?

Ninja is sorta understandable considering you were in the magic seat.

 

In other news, the new wave pool has just wet itself.

B&M hypers don't do anything for me at all. I was not in a wheel seat on GASM.

I rode Ga Cyclone in it's magic seat and it kicked ass.

Agree with all comments. However I do like DDD. Course the lapbars didn't hurt the ride either.

However painful it is, Cyclone is batshit insane. One of the most intense rides ever in a certain way.

 

I actually found it to be not at all painful the last time I rode (several weeks ago). It was the first time I had ever tried riding in the magic seat, and it was also the first time I actually enjoyed the ride.

If only every seat on the Cyclone kicked as much ass as the magic seat...

Anyone have any news on hurricane harbor? All previous emails, plus the park calendar have it opening this weekend BUT their site and the new email sent out today list it as "opening soon" and "in time for summer" with no date? I have a room booked for this weekend to spend the entire weekend and was hoping it would be open! I'll be kind of bummed if it isn't open.

 

 

Just curious if any locals have heard anything

^ I haven't heard anything about it recently.

 

Are you driving? If so - and Hurricane Harbor isn't opened - drive to White Water. It is about 20 - 30 minutes from SFoG and has always been a pretty nice park.

Yeah might do that, I used to go to whitewater anyways or I might just spend all three days on the coasters haha. I just always plan a trip there over memorial day weekend and gotta keep it going!

If you go through events tab on their site the old hurricane harbor event is listed as opening this weekend but if you click the hurricane harbor event on the homepage you get the "opening soon" listing. Maybe it'll be open! If not my membership has $10 whitewater tickets this weekend so I might use them

Yup I noticed today they changed their online schedule from this weekend to next.

 

Thanks for the confirmation though!

 

Not a surprise, I saw it coming when they changed the wording of their emails
