I went on both Sunday December 7 and Sunday December 14. They were running one train on most of the coasters. On the 14 I noticed Scorcher and Dahlonega were running 2 trains. The waits for the coasters were not bad though. DDD was running three cars but wouldn't dispatch a train until there was a train stacked, and the other train was just hitting the brake run.

 

I dont know if Six Flags has a temperature threshold where they close rides if its too cold like Dollywood. It was really cold on the 14. Acrophobia ended up being closed for the night (dont know if it was temp related). Though Superman was operating that night it was not behaving well. The train kept getting stuck on the brake run. When i rode it the train got stuck on the brake run for 40 minutes. They ended up having to evacuate us there as maintanence could not get the train to advance to the station.

I am planning to go next week as well.. I imagine it'll be busy but its the only time I have been able to make it this year!

 

Schools out, people traveling trying to find something to do while they are off, all of which I assume will make it busy

I went on Friday the 26th - I assumed it would be really crowded since it was a Friday night and the day after a Holiday (assumed people have off from work/school). The park wasn't as crowded as I had thought. DDD was running 4 trains, Scorcher 2 (I believe), Mine Train 2, Goliath 1, Acrophobia was closed, and I think Superman was open but I did not go back there to check it out. I was disappointed with Goliath running 1 train, but the LONGEST the line was was about 3/4 way through the first set of switchbacks out of the station (and that was between 4-7pm...before and after that the line didn't back into the switchbacks, even with 1 train operation). You're probably safe next week since I imagine people are back at work during the week except for maybe New Year's. None of the lines seemed bad at all, especially for a Friday.

Should I expect New Years Day to be really crowded? I know many people will be off from work, but I'm wondering if the crowds will have dwindled by then.

Saw this rumor on Screamscape that SFOG might run Batman backwards this year.

Park News - (1/5/15) While the traveling Batman: Backwards train is expected to make a long appearance at Six Flags Great Adventure for the 2015 season, I'm now hearing that it is also very likely to show up at Six Flags over Georgia for part of the 2015 as well. Typically it ends up spending the early Spring season at one park and travels to another for the later half of the Summer and Fall season. Given that SFOG typically has a short fall season due to the early school start, I wouldn't be surprised to see Batman: Backwards at SFOG for the Spring.

I heard that rumor as well back in the summer from the park itself.. Employees said that sfog is one of the only parks that haven't had the backwards trains yet and they felt it would be their turn in 2015

 

I have already been telling my friends to watch for it so I hope it ends up being true!

Havoc to Begin as BATMAN: The Ride Turns BACKWARDS

 

Six Flags Over Georgia Debuts Thrilling New Experience for Park Opening

 

AUSTELL, Ga. — January 23, 2015 — Chaos, mischief and havoc will unfold at Six Flags Over Georgia, as the park announces BATMANTM: The Ride BACKWARDS. This limited-time only, all-new ride experience will debut on Opening Day, March 14, 2015.

 

“We are excited to offer our guests an incredible and gravity-defying ride on one of the park’s most popular attractions,” said Six Flags Atlanta Properties park president Dale Kaetzel. “This twist is the first of several new experiences coming this season to Gotham City.”

 

BATMANTM: The Ride, inspired by DC Comic’s iconic Super Hero, opened at Six Flags Over Georgia in 1997 and has given more than 16 million thrilling rides. Now, guests will face an entirely new adrenaline rush featuring:

 

- A blood-pumping reverse view as the coaster towers up the 10-story lift hill BACKWARDS;

- Hair-raising speeds of 50 miles per hour BACKWARDS;

- A staggering 2,700 feet of track BACKWARDS;

- Daunting maneuvers through a daunting zero-gravity roll, corkscrew turns and vertical loops BACKWARDS.

 

Later this spring, Six Flags Over Georgia will unveil two new devious attractions in Gotham City, featuring the DC Comics Super-Villains The Joker and Harley Quinn:

 

THE JOKER Chaos Coaster – Face off with 23 other riders, rocketing seven stories in the air, soaring through a bedlam of loops, suspended upside-down for a ravaging thrill;

 

Harley Quinn Spinsanity – Experience the thrill of spinning, twisting and rolling through a cycle of classic family fun.

 

Six Flags Over Georgia will open for the 2015 season on March 14 and operate on weekends through May 17. The park will be open daily for Spring Break from April 4-12. Daily park summer operation begins Memorial Day weekend.

 

Season Passes are now on sale for as low as $59.99 with the purchase of a four-pack or more. For more information, visit http://www.sixflags.com/overgeorgia for pricing and hours of operation.

I hope this means Gadv may be getting Namtab for the second half of the year then? lol

 

Makes sense SFOG is getting it first since their Super Loop is going in their Gotham City area, and will attract more people to the area.

Don't know if the other new attractions will be open by Easter, but I look forward to giving this a try (kind of.) The downside is, if I hate it backwards, one of my favorite rides in the park is kind of out for me. The upside is - Mindbender is right next to it!!!

I probably won't try it. I don't handle riding backwards very well. Every time I ride Invertigo at Kings Island for example, I get super dizzy and pretty nauseous, never to the point of puking, but still feeling pretty bad. You can catch me marathoning Mind Bender like always.

Finally, a reason for me to get back to SFOG. I'm looking forward (I mean backward) to riding my first namtaB. I'll probably just ride it once, though, and then go back to riding Mindbender, Goliath, and Acro as many times as possible.

I KNEW IT!!

Although that sounds cool, haven't they already RMC Topper Tracked about 2/3 of it. If so, I don't see it being converted - which is fine. When it isn't trying to shake the teeth out of your body, Georgia Cyclone is a pretty fantastic ride with some great airtime.

I think it was the first hill and the turnaround that got topper track.
