Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I do hope that if it is Joker themed - it goes in Gotham City where it belongs and not over near the Mine Train.

 

Agreed. I suppose I'm an SFOG purist, but that section of the park is so beautiful to me.I feel like any addition near the Mine Train would detract from an area of the park that helps set it apart from other ones in the chain. Though, you will not hear me complain about Acrophobia...

 

As for me, bring on the flats. A well-rounded park is better than a lopsided park.

 

Flats would be great if they hadn't neglected the coaster collection so much in recent years. With the exception of Deja Vu in 2001 (and we all know how well that turned out), SFOG had been adding coasters every 2-3 years since 1990. But since Goliath in 2006, all we've gotten has been a Eurofighter in 2011, which to me isn't all that great. It's hard to not be jealous of all the other SF parks with launched coasters or RMC creations, etc.

Ugh I feel bad for any park who gets a Super Loop next year. They look amazing, but the ride experience is one of the worst flat rides in existence. The hang time with the horrible OTSRs is terrible.

 

Yeah, my park is one of those. Not happy at all. Wouldn't have been so bad if it were part of a package of rides.

I have mixed feelings over these Super Loops. They aren't very thrilling and tend to break down a lot. However, they are making a decent return and look impressive. It will be successful and hopefully stand as a good step on the stairway to a new coaster for the future.

SFOG has one of the most well rounded coaster collections you can find, and the really could use more non coaster rides. As long as they don't have to remove something like Crime Wave to build it I'm ok with this addition.

Coming in 2015: It’s epic. It’s chaotic. It’s devious. And, it’s waiting for you and 23 other riders! It’s the all-new THE JOKER Chaos Coaster. Experience the insanity of facing off against one another and rocking back and forth through seven stories of looping mayhem. It may seem like the madness is slowing down, but you are about to be thrown for a loop, upside down, 72 feet in the air. And, it’s not over yet. Get ready to be sent in the opposite direction for even more looping havoc.

 

If twists and turns are more to your liking, get ready for a thrill by spinning through an adventure bigger than ever before on the all-new Harley Quinn Spinsanity. Hop on this classic ride with your entire family with a new twist, as you challenge other riders to see who succeeds to spin around the most then stand up without feeling dizzy.

 

The new THE JOKER Chaos Coaster and Harley Quinn Spinsanity will be located in the Gotham City area of the park along with the likes of BATMAN: The Ride, Mind Bender and more!

 

THE JOKER Chaos Coaster and Harley Quinn Spinsanity will transform the iconic and guest popular Gotham City section of the park in 2015. The park’s 12th roller coaster will pit you against 19 other riders as you rocket up and down the sides of the seven story roller coaster before ending up suspended at the top looking straight down at the ground. Harley Quinn Spinsanity will spin, twist and roll you and your family each time you take on Gotham City’s second newest challenge.

Facts: THE JOKER Chaos Coaster

 

Twenty rides will start by “facing-off” against each other

Rocket up to seven stories high, forward and backwards through a bedlam of loops

Hang in peril, upside down at 72 feet high before the coaster releases you to even more loops of mayhem

The coaster is set the guest-popular BATMAN™: The Ride and Mind Bender roller coasters in Gotham City

 

Facts: Harley Quinn Spinsanity

 

Spin-sanity rules on this classic ride experience

Twist, spin and roll around a cycle of fun in Gotham City’s newest challenge

Riders spin around as many times as they can handle, as fast as they can handle as the seven cars rotate around the circular track

The ultimate ride to experience with your family to create new memories that will last a lifetime

A flat ride expansion to Gotham is exactly what I think was needed. I imagine the rides will go where the stadium for the former Batman show is. It would be a definite improvement to an area lacking for so many years.

Yeah, aside from it being marketed very wrong (although I am probably wrong in saying this as the words "roller coaster" will definintly attract tons of GP) I think Joker's Chaos and Harley Quin Spinsanity are a good investment. More flat rides in a park with 11 coasters is no loss by any means. Now all I want to know is where they are in the area.

That stadium is a HUGE area for a Tilt a Whirl and Mega Fireball. Surely it is someplace else.

That press release is really bothering me. In one place it says "you and 23 other riders", in another place it says the ride holds 20 riders, and finally it says the ride has 7 cars (which would mean it holds 28 riders.) Not a big deal at all but it is killing the perfectionist in me...

More flat rides are needed at SFoG so it's not a bad addition.

 

I still would like to see them get a giant ferris wheel. Something along the lines of what SFSL has.

 

Them marketing Joker's Chaos as a roller coaster isn't right but it's what they do.

 

They held onto the Mind Bender as being the world's first triple loop coaster for the longest time (they may still call it that). That one non-loop when you first enter the second section is the "second loop". So dumb.

I think it's a pretty fitting addition to the park that would help more than it would hurt. Now there'll be enough classic flats to consider Gotham as having more of a carnival atmosphere, which I think would be pretty cool!

I honestly wonder if making all of the announcements for the entire Six Flags chain is really the best idea. For those parks who get less, the local folks are going to come across as majorly ticked even if they get something the park really needs. Maybe start small and build up to the big announcements or just let the local PR folks determine the best time to make an announcement based on their local market.

Makes me wonder....why on earth did they get rid of Wheelie and then two years later put in another looping (and in my opinion less exciting) flat ride? I mean...these things are a dime a dozen at almost every carnival and fair in the nation. They could come up with something new. Oh well. And the coaster part? lmao! Way to go six flags! Carowinds here I come!

I actually like it, I wish Cedar Fair would do this.

Wheelie was over 30 years old and I'm sure had maintenance issues. This is an entirely new ride with little maintenance costs.

I was checking out SFOG's FB page and noticed something interesting: it seems like over half of the loudest complainers have rollercoasters/rides in their profile pics, and they post repeatedly about their disappointment...

 

Also noticing a disturbing trend of "the other park nearby is getting something bigger, therefore this sucks".

 

I mean, I'm not blown away by these things either, but they are what they are: a semi-decent little flat ride. I just hate how the internet and greater exposure to the industry at large is making every announcement into a huge complaint fest.

Most if not all Enterprises nowadays have issues, especially with the drive systems. The main issue is that HUSS won't make parts for models that they do not make anymore. Super Loops don't have the best mechanical history, but this should definitely be a major improvement.
