Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I for one am reserving all judgement on the new TC until I actually ride it. Regardless of what it will have or not have, it will no doubt be an awesome addition to the park.

 

I will also add, as this thread comes down from orbit and back to earth, I am eager to see all the other changes SFoG has in store, not just the new Coastal them8ng but also the "Piedmont" theme replacing the French section.

 

Oh, and lest we not forget GASM sdrawkcab!

 

We're really not all that bad at having a good time

Thanks for the unifying comment. I think we all need to calm down. Let's meditate and RELAX with some A........S.........M...........R

I still don't believe in judging a ride before I ride it.
this will have considerably more force than your average modern B&M.

 

Pick one.

A bit disingenuous to leave out the part about the second quote being a prediction.

 

Oh no, he's totally right. As I hit the submit button, my exact thoughts were even "well someone is just gonna have to call me out on this but there's so much crazy in this thread right now who really gives a sh*t, right?" Whatevs. We know just how much Chickenbowl loves this kinda thing tho so he can have this one. Let's let him bask in the 'gotcha' glow for a little while.

Well I didn't find a generic prediction judgmental.

 

I think predicting it to be more forceful than modern B&M's is reasonable. But how much more is the open question.

 

I'm not judging it either when I say it won't be as forcefully as Lighting Rod.

 

I can still be a fun ride.

 

I like B&M wings. Certainly not forceful, but lots of fun.

This thread.... offseason can't end soon enough.

 

Anyway, less than a month until the park is opened for the season, and by then, we should know for certain what's going on with TC. I'm in the camp that there's no 3rd lap and that there's just a few adjustments being made to the layout. Either way, based off what I've heard about other RMCs, this will still be a vast improvement over Georgia Cyclone and will serve as a great addition to the collections of great rides at the park.

Nope. Not until 3/10. I would love to go for the opening, but I'll be in Florida going to BGT and SWO that weekend.

Embrace the entertainment.

I'm quoting my own post from weeks ago since I never got a response. But I'm kinda starting to plan trips for later in the year so... Locals?

 

I'm starting to get a plan together for later this year and am coming to the conclusion that I'll be visiting sometime AFTER Labor Day. Early September? Early November? Early December? Does the park have a few "down" weekends between Fright Fest and HITP where crowds theoretically shouldn't be as bad? I really don't wanna go during Fright Fest, as while Platinum Flash Pass is an option, I'll most definitely be at the park on a Saturday. How are weekend crowds between Labor Day and the start of Fright Fest? I would really like to check out this parks HITP event since I love Great Advs so much but I'm afraid of the weather factor since I'll be booking a flight, hotel, etc in advance.

 

I'm not like booking tomorrow so I have time to figure this out, but any thoughts/advice from the locals on this? Taking into consideration crowds/weather potentials, if you were coming out from out of town would you go for early Sept, Nov or Dec? Thanks.

 

I've narrowed it down to either one of the two weekends AFTER Labor Day or the first weekend in November (after Fright Fest) - are they typically open those November weekends?

The park is open during the weekends of November, but if you want to maximize the time you have at Six Flags, the park is open longer the weekend after Labor Day. The weekend after that, though, the park is only open on Sunday due to a private event. In terms of crowdedness, I wouldn't expect it to be too crazy.

 

If you decide to go in November, the park will be open on the weekends. Weather wise, it shouldn't be too cold yet. Ride wise, I'm not sure if GASM, Superman, Blue Hawk, SkyScreamer or JLB4M will be open since they close the back of the park for maintenance. Crowd wise, it won't be crowded. People don't realize the park is even open half the time.

 

If you want to know anything else, let me know. If you want to meet up, grab a beer, and get some rides in, I live roughly 20 minutes from the park, and it'd be great to meet up with some TPR people.

Thanks for that info!

 

OK so I am currently leaning toward that weekend after Labor Day. I don't want to go in November if there will be a big chunk of the park closed. Not that I'm dying to ride any of that stuff as I rode SS, GASM and Superman on my last visit but would like to compare your JLBFM to ours of course, and I haven't ridden Blue Hawk since it was Kamikaze in Wildwood, as it was getting rehabbed when I was @ SFOG in 2016. Mostly tho a bunch of closed rides can equal longer lines elsewhere. I'd just rather everything be open. Plus I'd imagine the weather in September won't be as much of a gamble.

 

I'll definitely be visiting on a Saturday, thinking of flying down Saturday morning super early (just like I did last time) or maybe even late Friday night so I can just get right up and go to the park all day Saturday. I'll also be visiting my sister in Athens (prob Sun-Mon/Tues) and she warned me not to come the weekend of Nov 10th due to giant college football games in Athens.

 

What time does the park typically close on the those mid Sept weekends? I'd love to get some night rides on Goliath and Mindbender again.

It has been my experience, over the past 3 years, the weekends after Labor Day the park is annoyingly busy. It has a lot to do with their Labor Day season pass sale. Everyone is excited to get in there and get their passes activated within the first 30 days so they can get their coupons.

 

November is way better. The weekends between Fright Fest and HHIP the park is a ghost town.

But won't the back area of the park likely be closed in November?

 

Also, will it matter that its busy if I have Platinum FP? I had it last time on a beautiful busy April Saturday and I had no issues with the crowd, except when waiting for food.

Ah...I forget about the flash pass option all the time. With 4 kids in tow...I have learned over the years the best days to go to avoid the crowds. With a flash pass though you would be fine.

 

They have been expanding HIIP each year but I don't think this year is the year they are going to include GASM and Blue Hawk.

Last year GASM, Sky Screamer and Blue Hawk were all OPEN weekends in November, before the start of Holiday. I cannot say for sure it will happen that way again this year but it has been that way for the past few years. Weather in November is a mixed bag; could be chilly or summer like. Park is very un-crowded in November, even on the Military Appreciation Day which is typically the weekend closest to Veterans' Day. Lines were short, even for food. One caveat: the park is only open until 6PM on those days.

 

Holiday begins the weekend before Thanksgiving. The park hours extend until 10pm but that aforementioned section of the park closes for winter maintenance.

 

If you want to get the most ride time November is best. On the other hand, the weekend after Labor Day the water rides and Hurricane Harbor remain open.

 

Happy and safe travels!
