Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

IIRC, part of the reason Wheelie was removed was that was the only location in the park they could build Sky Screamer at that height and get permission for it with the nearby airport.

 

^Also with HUSS they don't keep parts in stock and only manufacture them as they receive payment, which can cause weeks of delays with getting a ride fixed.

Sorry I'm not trying to complain. Yes I'm glad that they are getting more flats. I've just never been a fan of super loops after my last experience with one at the Tennessee Valley Fair a while back. Happily riding and my seatbelt came undone and your arms are so cramped I couldn't reach it to snap it back in. The harness was very loose so I was hanging on for dear life. Granted it was a carnival....but still. Bad memories.

That would explain why Kentucky Kingdom's Enterprise has been SBNO this entire year. I feel it'll hit the graveyard for something better by next year. But even worse, wasn't the Enterprise previously at Over Georgia a Schwarzkoph model?

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.

I agree. These rides don't look like the best ever, but they still seem thrilling and fun, and hopefully I can ride them one of these days. These people should at least be glad that they're getting this and not some other lame attraction.

I'm just wondering how they plan on competing in the local area with Carowinds getting the largest giga in the world and Dollywood opening Dreammore Resort and them another $20+ million ride in 2016. Hopefully they are saving for something truly epic....then again, we'll probably see a Crazy Cyclone remake of Georgia Cyclone. Not saying that would be a bad thing.

Or SFOG will just get the second Wicked Cyclone

Oh there's still room for criticism for sure. I'm sure the park-model versions from Larson will be better though.

Easy, they'll take the cheap route like they always do: charge huge fees for parking, in-park advertising barfed all over the place, charge for lockers and other little things that are normally free or really cheap, have slow operations which create huge lines and then have huge prices for Fast Passes, fill every corner of the park with rip-off games... need I go on? Same old song and dance that led them into bankruptcy last time.

I honestly beleive that we will be seeing an iron horse treatment done to our georgia cyclone next year or addleast some type of new roller coaster. But i just have this feeling that we will see a wicked georgia cyclone or iron georgia cyclone in 2016. Anyone else think so?

The people on this site baffle me. Everyone bitches and complains about Carowinds getting a record breaking coaster but then turn around and say that it is great that SFOG is getting 2 normal, run of the mill rides you can ride at any carnival? WTH?

 

Parks like MM, GAm and SFFT are getting major coasters within 2 years of each other and parks like SFOG are haven't had anything since 11 and even that wasn't major. I am not a "we should get a new coaster every year" person, but come on if you are going to give us a flat, at least make it worth our time (giant frisbee or screamin' swing.) I, for one, will not be buying a SF season pass next year. All my money is going to Dollywood and Cedar Fair since they are the one's building good rides!!!

I searched the threads to see if anyone caught it, but I guess the major coasters overshadowed it. Anyways, I'm not sure if anyone caught that Six Flags White Water is to also receive Dive Bomber drop capsule speed slide.

 

Edit: I totally breezed through the paragraphs and didn't see it... Yes, it'll replace Cliffhanger.

Ten Story Super-Thrilling Water Slide to Make a Giant Splash at Six Flags White Water in 2015

Tallest Slide at the Park Featuring Nearly 90 Degree Drop

 

MARIETTA, Ga. — August 28, 2014 — Six Flags White Water will make an enormous splash in 2015 with the addition of Dive Bomber, an electrifying capsule water slide towering 10 stories tall. Dive Bomber will take the existing Cliffhanger attraction to new heights and become the tallest water slide ever built at the South’s Most Thrilling Water Park.

 

“We are excited to introduce Dive Bomber at White Water as one of the most intense water slides in the south,” said Six Flags Atlanta Properties park president Dale Kaetzel. “It will test the courage of all thrill-seekers and our guests with an adrenaline rush never experienced before at the park, when it is least expected.”

 

The daringly tall water slide, Dive Bomber, will feature:

 

An enclosed, clear capsule with a trap door that releases riders for a zero-gravity experience

A tower more than 100 feet above the lush tree line of the park

A nearly 90 degree drop

Speeds of more than 40 miles per hour

 

Park enthusiasts can follow the construction of Dive Bomber on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/sixflagswhitewater and on Twitter at

NO! That's so annoying! I've never ridden Cliff Hanger, but it looks awesome seeing that drop once you push yourself forward over the edge. And to think that that awesome name will be turned to Dive Bomber makes me even more infuriated! I totally feel ripped off - kind of what Over Texas's water park did a few years ago, but at least they kept one side of their drop slide without the capsule for the variety...

I can see the name for Georgia Cyclone's RMC. Georgia's Wicked Cyclone. Very easy name to figure out without getting too creative. Total Six Flags style.

To be honest I really think we are next for the RMC treatment. If white water got this new huge attraction, than I would think we would be next for something large. Add leafs I hope!

I just realized that if these rides are actually popular, I could lose my chance for some awesome short lines for Mind Bender and Batman. Also, isn't this the firat ride addition to the area since the creation of the area?

Yep, nothing had been added to Gotham city since BATMAN: The Ride. The stunt show use to be in the axis arena. I wonder what they will do with that since there adding two new attractions?

Honestly what they're doing now is awesome. Those floor drop slides are much better and less dull than the "over the edge" ones.

I just feel like it's a total rip off. It's like taking a coaster, turning it backwards and repainting it, and calling it new.

So making a old roller coaster/water slide better is a bad thing?

That's like hating on an RMC remake because they couldn't think of an original name.
