Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^I've heard about the double load and unload but have yet to see it myself. I've been many times but haven't been in the last month or two so it must be new for summer. I'm very happy to see them trying though.

I hope they do that with Superman. They need to start using the duel loading station again because I hate waiting in the heat before getting back in the station. Also will the Justice League Dark Ride affect Supermans operations and lines? I hope it does so it will have better operations and less lines. Also, when do you guys think SFOG will get a new coaster and what will it be. Originally, I thought this year would either be an RMC Topper Track or and IBOX. I think they might either add a T-REX, IH, or TT RMC eventually. This might be one of the park's that could get the T-REX since they haven't added an RMC yet. Also, do you think there is any possibility of a B&M coming in the future like a wing, dive, florless, or giga? I think this park could also get something from Premier Rides or Mack. I'd love an Intamin but that probably won't happen. If this park ever gets an S&S 4D Free Spin, I hope they get the larger type. Since we know Six Flags, I don't think they'll get the larger version as Six Flags likes to clone. I really want a coaster at this park.

I think that another b&m is possible and would be great but six flags hasn't bought one recently and I don't see it happening. There's no way sf would buy a dive or giga so that leaves it to a wing or floorless. But I really just don't see it happening.

 

Do you guys think a hurricane harbor expansion is coming? Cause I hope so

SFOG has a very well-rounded coaster lineup. If they do get a coaster within the next couple of years, based on recent trends it'll be an RMC conversion of one of the park's woodies or the same version of the S&S 4D that SFFT and SFGAdv received. Hope all you want for the larger model, but if SFGAdv didn't get it, SFOG certainly won't, either.

I don't see a hurricane harbor expansion due to they don't want to compete with six flags white water. But anything is possible.

 

Sfog doesn't have the land to compete with white water.

 

In fact I'd love to see ww pick up some of the land that used to be the dry park beside it and expand there but have no idea the current legal status of that land.

Yeah, American Adventures is a real eye sore when visiting White Water. Six Flags could tear that whole place down and build the biggest water park in the southeast and make it something really special. White Water is always packed every time I visit so I know it would be a great investment for the company. As for SFOG getting another coaster, I'm hoping 2018 is the year. SFGAdv got a coaster this year and getting a JL:BFM next year so it's not out of the question for SFOG to have the same plan.

The park has expressed plans to expand Hurricane Harbor and I am honestly surprised it hasn't already happened. They have plenty of space if they don't mind making everyone walk up a hill. They own almost 100 acres behind HH and much of the space directly behind HH is open space with their dumping ground and unused baseball field.

 

Doesn't White Water own the land that American Adventure is on? I know Six Flags owned American Adventure when it operated, and they still use the facilities of the old Foam Factory for Guest Relations. I don't see why they couldn't expand onto the old American Adventures space.

 

I could see a B&M wing coaster coming to SFOG, but it wouldn't be my first guess in what they would get.

I'm not sure how well maintained the flats at AA are, but if they're good, and SFOG owns the land, it'd be nice to restore them and move them to Six Flags and White Water to take over the land. It's a win win for everyone, but I have a feeling Six Flags sold the land to another company.

I don't see how they sold they land if they still own the foam factory building. American Adventures is pretty heavily land locked between that building, the park's parking lot, and the water park itself. Many of the American Adventure ride pads were very close to the path entering White Water as well and I can't imagine Six Flags giving up land pushing right up on the pedestrian entry to the water park. I'm fairly certain they still own the land and simply ceased operations of American Adventures because it wasn't profitable and they were trying to cut expenses at the time.

 

The rides were all removed last year or earlier. I am not sure where they ended up or if they were all scrapped.

^I agree. That land just isn't in a place where it can be sold. It is surround almost completely by functioning Six Flags owned operations.

 

As for White Water expanding, I do hope this happens soon! I have NEVER been to White Water without the place being almost overcrowded. Even on weekdays after large storms have moved through.

 

White Water could use an extensive expansion with a second wave pool, a water coaster, and even a substantial body slide complex. Really the park could just use more of anything and everything even though they already have more slides than most water parks.

Also, I believe Yosemite Sam’s Wacky Wagons which was added to the new Bugs Bunny Boomtown at Six Flags came from American Adventures. At least it is the same model ride. The scrambler went to Great Adventure. I still have no idea what happened to the other dozen rides they had.

^I'm not sure but it was SBNO for 5 years so there is a decent chance it was scrapped. I recall the removal being sloppy but I'm not entirely sure. It was a small basically portable powered coaster but it was installed permanently with footers so I'm going to say it was probably scrapped as the scrap yard money was probably greater than any realistic selling cost considering it wasn't easy to transport.

Visited the park on 06/22/2016:

 

Goliath: Hands down the best coaster in the park. Stronger airtime than the very overrated Diamondback (KI). Not as strong as Magnum XL-200 or Phantom's Revenge. The very back seat hurt my back at the last dip before the break, towards the front seems to be the best location. 8/10

 

Mind Bender: One of the best Schwartzkopfs I have ridden. Would have to ride this back to back with Schockwave to see which I like better. It would have benefitted from more elements though, but it is an older coaster afterall. It took almost an hour to get on it though 7.5/10

 

Great American Scream Machine: A decent wooden coaster. I prefer this to what SFOT has to offer (Judge Roy), KD's entire wooden line up, Timber Wolf, Cedar Point's wooden line-up, but it unfortunately is a bit too short and slow for my taste. 6/10

 

Georgia Cyclone: Meh. 5/10

 

Blue Hawk: The new train restraints do wonders to help make this ride tolerable. The layout is not fun though. Every Arrow would benefit from these trains. 5.5/10

 

Dare Devil Dive: It took an hour to get on this thing even though the line was in the station house. Forceless and not fun. 4.5/10

 

Batman: Worst Inverted Coaster experience ever. Constant headbanging and shortly after we rode it it was shut down. I don't know if something was broke that they fixed or if it is really in that bad of shape. A shame because the theming was in excellent shape. 1/10

 

Dahlonega Mine Train: A solid minetrain. I wish SFSTL had these trains as it would do wonders for ours. 7/10

 

I didn't ride the Georgia Scorcher as stand up B&Ms have been painful to me, Superman UF was down a couple times and the wait was 1.5 hours. All I can say is I'm sorry but this park did not impress me at all. Coca-Cola World was awesome and made staying in Atlanta worthwhile.

^dang, is our batman really that bad? I ride it every visit and I think it's fine.ive heard multiple people say ours is rough.

 

Like many people have said, I think our coaster lineup is solid, but lacks a ride that is really stands out as being awesome. Park needs an RMC lol.

My experience with Batman is that a sensor causes one train to become stuck in the station and the other on the brake run.. it's happened to me twice! Once for over 45 minutes.. very hot day when that happened but they kept bringing us little cups of water which was nice. I was stick on the brake run.. they where about to go get a small step ladder and let us off but finally got the empty train in front of us on the lift hill so we could come forward and get off
