Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

SFOG is offering the all season flash pass which is good from now to the end of 2017 for only $250. Thats a pretty good deal since its the gold level pass.

Is anyone thinking about doing this? I've never used the Flash Pass system at SFOG since I'm there at least a couple of times a month but the current $250 price point has me seriously considering it.

I'm assuming it's the regular flash pass?? If so, it's not worth it, as it really doesn't cut your wait time down. Now if it was gold or Platnium I would say go for it, but the regular, not so much.

Anyone know what's going on at the park on Sept 18th? I find it weird the water park is open and six flags is on a Sunday but not on Saturday.

 

Is that a special event or something? I didn't find it on events ha-ha.. I jsut find it weird they are open Sunday and not Sat.

 

And man I wish they did the flash pass deal for the regular one! Or that the price included two people lol

If they put 1/2 of the effort into Metropolis as they did into Gotham at SFoG, it will look AMAZING. I still think they have the best Gotham area of all the parks

 

I think the Gothams at all the parks should be the examples for the other "lands". It's clearly the one that sells the most Merch.

 

I do disagree with SFOG being the best. I don't drink anything can touch SFOT now. Excluding the cloned rides (Harvey and batman)- SFOG has joker (loop), mind bender (coaster) and crime wave (swing) while SFOT has freeze (great coaster), riddler (best pendulum in county), cat woman (whip ride- I don't like it personally), a little batman spinner ride (a la dumbo), and now they just announced Joker (4D coaster). It's an embarrassment of riches down there.

 

Justice league is fantastic though. I wish SFOT wasn't the first to get it because it has technical problems all the time and I can't help but thing the newer versions have fixed a majority of them.

Have you been to Gotham at SFOG? It's definitely more immersive than SFOT and honesty Mind Bender is as good as Mr. Freeze and more unique/historic. I have no doubt SFOT has more thrills in their Gotham City but that's about it. Coming from someone who has been to and loves both parks.

They do a private event for someone that Saturday. I can't remember who. AT&T? I don't remember. It's a big corporate event though I believe and they've done it for many years now.

Got it, my GF was off and wanted to go that weekend but we always go two or three weekends for frightfest so I wasn't really wanting to go that weekend lol.. but we might go up for part of the day Sunday then to catch the last day of the water park.. we where going this weekend but cancelled our plans do to all the rain from the hurricane possibly moving through the area.. we went last year during all that rain (from another hurricane I believe) and six flags kept closing early so didn't want to waste a weekend this weekend lol

 

Might be ATT or Cricket.. I know they have big offices there in ATL

I can't remember when does the park shut down Thunder River?? I usually wait after the summer, to make my annual fright fest trips and it's always shut down by then, but I'm going this Saturday, I know the water park closes on the 18th for the season, so will Thunder River shut down then?? It's supposed to be 90 this Saturday so I'm praying to Jesusbuddahalah that it's open.

Having been to both parks in the last 2 weeks, I still give the edge to SFOG. Although I loved Mr. Freeze, give me Mindbender anyday. I do think SFOT gets the edge in terms of flat rides, but I enjoy the scenery of SFOG better. Plus the Flash Pass line of OG's batman doesn't take you through a sketcky back area where you think you might actually need Batman to protect you

I went on an early Sat in Sept a few years ago and it was open still.. I'd imagine it's last day will be the 18th with the water park. The only reason they close it is for a haunted maze.. I have even seen splash water falls run on warm fright fest days.

I figured that to since the water park is open, but nope it's drained and closed for the season, which sucks because it's hot as hades today.

^That sucks. It's such a great ride and I was hoping to ride it again this season. They used to always have it open. I remember when I was younger marathoning it when the temps were in the high 40s. I would never be dumb enough to do that now but considering it is in the 90s today it would be really nice if it was open lol.

It really does suck, because my other two vists this year were at the start when it wasn't open yet. So I haven't gotten to ride it all year, it's one of the best rapid rides out there, Splashwater got us wet, but not quite the drenching Thunder River would have gotten us.

That really does suck! I know Dollywood leaves their water rides open way into October! I guess they are building the haunted maze in it already? I figured it would take long to built those, they are very simple and not much to them lol

Either that, or maybe it's a staffing issue?? Thunder River takes more to staff than the 3 at Splashwater Falls.

So I'm in Atlanta on business right now, and as I often do, I used my free day today to check out this park. I didn't take many photos, so I'm just going to skip them.

 

First, Daredevil Dive was down all day, which sucks cause I really wanted to try it, but the lines weren't bad anywhere and everything was running two trains except Blue Hawk, so I got every credit except it.

 

So here's my ratings:

 

Georgia Scorcher 10/10

Seriously, I was shocked how much I enjoyed this. I did it first because it was right there, and not only was it smooth and non painful, the g forces were awesome!

 

Mind bender 10/10

I love Schwartzkopf coasters, and this little one was no exception. So fun to have the old school lap bars too! The loops were also very intense in a good way.

 

BTR 9/10

I love the batman clones, but this one rode a little worse than some of the others I've been on. That said, it was still a blast and I miss these days of B&M intensity.

 

Blue Hawk 7/10

Gotta say, the new trains probably help this ride a lot, but it still uses a lot of old Arrow technology in the bogey (in fact they had Arrow brand road wheels on). The new restraints dug into my collar a bit, and this still throws you around a decent amount, but I could easily have reroad without a headache. Unfortunately, they were only running one train and I didn't feel like waiting 20+ minutes for a second ride when other things were a walkon.

 

Goliath 10/10

 

Not my favorite hyper, but still a very fun ride. I like the airtime before the big spiral turn around.

 

Superman 5/10

This was... Pretty boring, which isn't what you want for a ride that's a little uncomfortable. I feel like other flyers I've been on were more fun, plus the ops were sloe and the Georgia heat is unforgiving, making sitting stomach down on the transfer aweful...

 

Scream Machine 10/10

This was so much more fun than I thought it would be! Simple fun layout, and fast enough that the bumpiness didn't matter at all! Great ride!

 

Cyclone 4/10

Holy hell this was rough. Now I don't normally mind rough, but this hurt my knees, back, and neck, which is not normal even on a rough woodie or arrow. Good god. At least it didn't trim so it had a few fun moments, but this is even rougher than Mean Streak, and the only coaster I can think of this bad was the old woodie at SFNO. Yikes.

 

Mine train 7/10

I do like Arrow mine rides, but this was just boring. That said, I'm fine with it because it's a good family and wimp ride. Still, adventure express has ruined the other mine rides for me.

 

All in all a pleasant day. I got multiple laps on the coasters I wanted to reride, with my longest wait being blue hawk, which actually I wouldn't mind another lap on in the future. I doubt I'll reride Cyclone, which makes it only the second coaster in history I'd prefer not to ride again unless my party wanted to (the other being mean streak). That ride could be awesome if re tracked, but holy hell has it been poorly maintained.

 

Still bummed about missing daredevil though

Where on BTR did you sit?? For some reason the farthest left seat on the front of the train threw and rattled me around like crazy yesterday and today, but every other seat I rode in on it front and other rows were smooth. I agree about Blue Hawk, I rode it the first time yesterday in its new form, and still waited 25 minutes with a Platnium Flash Pass in the station because of the one train wait, it's better than Ninja for sure, but I still think it's the worst coaster they have, and the last two inversions on it were still rough, the first half of the ride did smooth out though, so some credit is due.

I did BTR once front once back, and agree it hits weird in the front. I actually like Blue Hawk over superman and cyclone tbh. If they were running twould trains, I'd ride it again before I'd ride supreman again, and I'm not sure I'll get back on cyclone before a retrack

I do have to give SFOG credit, while I personally still am not fond of Blue Hawk, they did a really good job of marketing it. I've been to the park on busier days when it was still Ninja and it would run one train and still only have 3 or 4 rows of riders per train.It was probably close to an hour wait Saturday, as I waited 30 minutes just in the station.I do think new trains and track work would have been sufficient, because Ninja was one of the few coasters in the park that didn't need a paint job, but at least they went with another good color ( Blue) instead of some wacky Six Flags color scheme.
