Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Going to be visiting SFOG this weekend for the first time. Any good areas that has nice hotels that is no more than 30-45 min from the park. I like to go further out because rooms are usually cheaper.

Like others have said, the hotels right along the park are decent and not that expensive, but if they are sold out or if you want to save more money I would suggest staying west of the park along I-20. Keep in mind, SFOG is literally 10 minutes from downtown so anything to the east is close to the city. The area immediately east of the park is VERY ghetto and I would not suggest staying anywhere east of the park. I had to stop for gas once off the exit just east of the park and I had a group of unfortunate looking people eyeing me and as soon as the cop that was present left, one came over and asked me if I was looking for sex or drugs. So unless you need a sketchy prostitute or drugs, I would avoid staying in that general area.

 

 

lol thanks for the advice!

SFOG mark my words get a JL:BFM and a coaster next year. The reason is that a Justice League dark ride takes up about .52 acres, but the permit SFOG said that they would be using 1.6 acres next year. So what could they use that extra acre for... A PREMIER RIDES LAUNCH COASTER! Think, It cant be a T-Rex because the GM said that their new attraction(s) have been done before. An S&S 4D Free Fly with a huge queue wouldn't even get close to taking up that much room, and the only other things Six Flags installs besides RMCs, Justice League Dark Rides, and S&S's, (on the coaster side) are PREMIER RIDES LAUNCH COASTERS!!!!

That's a lot of money by Six Flags standards to be investing into a single park in a single year.

it's gonna be a super-loop with a GIGANTIC queue line

We already got a Super Loop.

Six Flags wouldn't get a ROI for two major attractions in the same year. There's 0% chance of a coaster and a dark ride happening in the same year

To imissopryland,

 

I looked it up and a JL:BFM with a queue would take up .75 acres and thats if the queue if half the size of the building, which I highly doubt. I am not familiar with the geography of SFOG, but I defenitly know that the closer they built JL:BFM to the old Dodge City Bumper Cars ride, the less ground shifting they would have to do. So if they built it there, I would expect a new ride and I gave my theories of that ride on the last page

But you're thinking Six Flags would add both a Justice League and a roller coaster in the same year which they wouldn't do.

 

For all we know, they could be expanding Metropolis park out and adding a plaza for Justice League, or they could be replacing the service road that is probably going to be removed for Justice League. Just because the building is going to take up a certain amount of land doesn't mean that they're not doing landscaping, infrastructure, or other stuff to the land not being taken up by Justice League. There's a lot of stuff that has to happen around and under the ride before it can be built.

SFoG does a pretty good job with keeping up themes (their Gotham is fantastic.) That being said - if they are doing the Justice League ride where the bumper cars were - I can see them connecting that with Metropolis plaza (where Superman is) and making some attempt at keeping a coherent theme with the two.

 

I don't know what this does to the Cotton States Exhibition, which is one of the original Six Flags Themes for that side of the park, but I'm hopeful .

^That makes me happy to see honestly! I really don't want them messing up the Cotton States Exposition theme (they already removed the sign when you are coming from Lickskillet, which frustrated me) so the fact that it looks like the entry plaza will be inside Metropolis Park makes me very happy! This could be a really well placed addition.

 

(Side note - Six Flags PLEASE bring Superman back to dual station ops and fix all the system issues to go along with this addition. Superman will only experience more traffic. Oh and some nice touch up to Cotton States Expo and GASM would be appreciated too!)

Maybe a Zamperla frisbee and endevour?

Yesterday was my first visit to the park yesterday and Superman was having a lot of restraint issues. One of the trains only had half the seats available in the front along with random other seats.

 

That sucks. Instead of SFOG running half the train, they should shut down the ride for a few days for some repairs so they have time.

 

I'm not complaining that it was open. Besides, no matter how few people it fits, the capacity will be greater than Dare Devil Dive. I thought the "60 minutes from this point" sign had to be a joke, but it wasn't. I literally had 40 people ahead of me.

I belive more people would complain if the ride was shut down completely. In a few more weeks six flags will go back to a weekend only schedule.. that should give them time to make repairs before Fright Fest and Holiday in the Park.

Keeping Superman open, however limited, is better than it being closed.

 

I don't see how anyone can disagree with this statement.

 

It is a very unique ride. I am glad to have ridden it many times!

It's pretty neat that besides Batman and Superman, every coaster at the park is unique.
