World’s First DC Super Friends Kids’ Area to Headline Major Park Renovation for 2016 Season

 

12 Rides and Attractions within Two New Themed Areas at Six Flags Over Georgia

 

The park’s current children’s area, Bugs Bunny World, will be re-themed to Bugs Bunny Boomtown and feature seven attractions, including:

 

· Daffy Ducks Bucket Blasters, a wild and crazy family water battle;

For some reason noticed the bald-dude with the No. 14 Pete Rose jersey standing besides his son with blonde cornrows before I noticed Daffy Ducks Bucket Blasters. Is this the same model as the Mack Splash Battle that SFDK got?

Looks like an AWESOME upgrade to Bugs Bunny World! I admit that there's a tiny bit of bittersweet nostalgia for me seeing the original Bugs Bunny World go away as it has been largely unchanged since I was a small kid in the early 90s. However, the amount of family rides being added here is something this park needed so badly!! I'm excited!

Apparently, they're also going to move Superman next to Cyclone. Teehee

And flatten out the park while adding a lot of trees near Superman. Haha

I thought both of these things while watching the video!

 

Hopefully that just speaks for the inaccuracies of the video because the whole expansion, while great, looks like a generic Cedar Fair job. Hopefully it's more charming in real life (which it will be with hills, more plants, hopefully variations in fence types, small details, etc.)

While I am sad to see the Spanish section of the park go (I am still a fan of keeping the old while building new as well, and I think SFOG has room for it's original theme and new themes), this expansion overall is more than I would've ever imagined!

 

Pros:

 

- Overall a really big expansion with 2 excellent themed areas!

- I like that the rides range from kiddie rides to intermediate rides (That drop tower and those flyers are things I am excited to ride!)

- While Canyon Blaster's new name is silly (considering we just added The Joker Chaos Coaster) and I feel like the original theme was perfect and could've easily marked the entry to Looney Tunes Boomtown, the funhouse theme could be really exciting with the queue, the amount of structure they are working with, and that garage tunnel mid-course of the coaster.

 

Cons:

 

- Nothing new in terms of thrills or to make Hurricane Harbor the capacity it really needs to be

- It's sad to see the Spanish theme die

- Canyon Blaster was already one of the best themed rides in the park, it utilized the Spanish fort for basically what it was, and made a great back entry to Bugs Bunny World (I think the ride could've stayed the same and marked the entrance to Looney Tunes Boomtown perfectly, leaving more room to invest). However, the retheme will give it attention as a "new" coaster.

 

Overall this is a pretty great expansion and a park that had barely any flats and a mostly dated kid's area now has tons of flats and kid's areas expanding from near the front of the park to nearly the back! (if you include Carousel Hill, which I absolutely would!)

 

SFOG, already probably the nicest park in the chain, has become so much nicer with Hurricane Harbor, by far the best Gotham City, many flats, and now great areas for kids. Hopefully this means a new coaster is on the horizon too, since we are caught up in pretty much every other department.

I actually think this is a great idea for the park.SFOG already has an amazing line up we have the chain's only eurofighter, one of the most well regarded B&M Stand Up, Ditto for the Hyper, MINDBENDER, Batman, while a clone still hauls ass, A flyer, A beautifully placed out & back, The water park is decent for it being so new, and while I thin we already have a decent kids area, the remodel plus new rides will be a hit I think.

I'm guessing the Harley Quinn Mirror Maze is going in the building as well, which is probably why they are switching the theme. It is funny they had Fearless Freep's Dare Devil Dive when they build Dare Devil Dive and now they will apparently have The Joker Chaos Coaster and The Joker Funhouse Coaster

I don't hate the name, but it is kind of funny and I hope they don't beat a dead horse with Joker themed rides throughout the chain (as much as I love the character).

 

The only reason I'm not totally annoyed by the retheme of Canyon Blaster is because the fun house aspect really adds a lot of potential. Also, I am sure the re-branding will work in the park's favor which is always a good thing. More ROI.

I really like what they are doing with SFOG over the last couple years. Right now this park and SFFT are my 2 favorites in the chain.

I can't wait to get out to Fiesta Texas because I love SFOG and have been slightly disappointed by every other park in the chain I've been to by comparison.

Which other ones have you been to?? I've been to SFMM, SFSTL, SFGAM and I agree, they definitely don't have the charm that Georgia has, although they all do have pretty good collections of coasters.

I have been to SFStL, SFA, SFGAdv, SFOT, SFDK, and SFKK during its Six Flags days.

 

I could go into detail about each one, but basically they are all nice parks that just need work in certain areas. I'm just glad SFOG is my home park because it is the only one I wouldn't get bored with (well SFOT and SFGAdv would be decent).

 

I'm definitely interested in getting to SFMM and SFGAM soon since they are 2 of the biggest parks in the chain.

So, could SFOG get another HH expansion for 2017? I'm really hoping so as it still needs quite a bit more.

 

Certainly possible. I think most would agree that a HH expansion is needed in the near term future, and it’s always packed when I’m at the park. It will also be the park’s 50th anniversary, so I can only imagine we’ll see a fairly large addition.

 

I’d love to see a Premier launcher added to the back of the park where Deja Vu used to be. Though I would be surprised if our next coaster isn’t a 4D free spin or RMC rework of Cyclone rather than something from Premier. Either way, with the addition of HH a lot of fresh life has been added to the back half of the park, and it would be nice to have more capacity back there to handle those crowds.

SFOG is one of my fav Six Flags. After living in GA for years and having a pass to SFOG, it's really nice to see this park grow and thrive for the future! Looks like 2016 will be a great year for them. I see a road trip in my future!

Yea, I'm hoping RMC comes in and does some work on Cyclone. I actually enjoy Cyclone now, but only in the magic row. But if RMC was to come in, I'm pretty confident they can turn it into a top 10 coaster for the first time!
