I didn't see the photo or video or whatever of what you are all talking about, but standard operating procedure on Manta at SWO is after the trains go into flying position, all ops on platform are sup

Coaster Studios is a little whiny douchebag.

Looking at news reports that come up from Google searches of "Six Flags Over Georgia Opening Day" and 2019 and 2018, it seems like they typically open in March.  Next year is anyone's guess with COVID

Well guys it's official. If it's not already completed they are working on installing the last piece of track for TC! Despite not having a 3rd lap, it looks like a great ride and the last airtime hill before going up to the brake run looks wicked. The elements are certainly there for it to be a great ride and not be at the bottom of the pack. Check out this fantastic video from coaster addict! #mostbeautifulcoasterof2018#lengthisnoteverything#super-excited

I absolutely hate Six Flags flash pass system. When TC opens, you'll only be able to purchase platinum flash pass and only be able to skip the line once. This has been pretty consistent with every major new ride opened at a Six Flags park. It's just not worth it. If you spend over $100 for a skip the line option, you should at least be able to do it more than once. I just wish every park could follow Cedar Fair's model...It's so simple and easy...And value!

Seriously?!?! That sucks I'll just have to get a gold for everything else and wait for that one! That's absurd!

Actually it looks like regular Flash Pass will be able to be used on Twisted Cyclone (but yes, only once): https://www.sixflags.com/overgeorgia/store/flash-passes

Not sure why Batman is only once, but it makes sense for Cyclone and DDD. The capacity is already going to be bleh (it's a short ride, you think they will be able to dispatch train 2 without stacking? ) so while I'd love to buy a FP and ride over and over and over I get it. It's true, they did the same thing with Goliath at SFGAm so the plan should be:

 

Go to TC and get a ride in (another lap if the line it's too long) then go to get your FP. Who knows, maybe there will be a single rider line that will help keep trains full.

 

But let's be real, it's going to be tough to not stack trains on this quick circuit + how Six Flags loads/unloads guests in/out of RMC trains.

Yeah, is the Batman one just Six Flags being Six Flags, or does it actually have something to do with its capacity or how they do Flash Pass on it, or...? I generally don't think of B&M inverts as low-throughput rides, but...Six Flags.

Thought that was odd as well

Batman is one time only because of the way the flash pass entry is set up. Flash pass entry is through the ride exit which is a very confined space. Last year I believe Batman was Gold or Playinun only and even with that limitation, the exit was always a cluster. Flash pass riders have to walk against the stream of people up the narrow exit ramp, then wait at the air gate, then they are moved into another gated off area in the station, then released from there into the back two rows of the train. Those rows are closed off to normal guests but if you wait for third to last row you can easily take any open seats in the last two rows if empty.

That's good. I remember when Hersheypark was trialing their Fast Track pass they would leave rows of coasters empty even if there weren't any pass users waiting on the platform.

Does anyone know if TC will be eligible for the one free skip the line pass for Platinum members? That way If you bought Flash Pass, you could theoretically skip the lines once, plus riding at park opening and park closing.

Six Flag's Flash Pass system is also much more expensive at its highest level than Cedar Fair's. However, I'd honestly pay more if they just went with something as simple as Cedar Fair's Fast Lane Plus system and ditched their ride scheduling system. You would think it would also save Six Flags a little money.

Apparently Cedar Point is charging upwards of $150 for FL+ on holiday weekend, no?

 

The most I've seen Six Flags charge is $110 for platinum, and the system might as well be the same when you have platinum. You can reserve and be on the ride within a couple minutes if not sooner, so its essentially the same as CF's wristband/walk-right-up system.

 

And up until this year, SF offered double rides with Platinum, whereas CF has never done that at all to my knowledge.

^The double rides are gone? That always seemed like kind of an awkward perk to me, anyway. Plus they turned out to be more limited (to specific rides) at each park than I would have assumed.

I remember paying over $120 for Flash Pass Platnum (name?) at SfGam a couple years ago, which included one Goliath reservation. When we go to KI and other larger CF parks, but smaller than CP, we usually pay anywhere from $85-$100 for a weekend day FL+. I think CP was $120 on our last weekday visit. I'd rarely ever take advantage of the double rides with the Flash Pass, but it is a cool perk for those who choose to use it. I thought SF didn't do that any longer, though? I know at least at one point they weren't doing it.

 

Either way, my personal preference is the ease and simplicity of CF's version. I typically don't even factor cost into the equation.

Yeah, the double rides are gone. Plus, Cedar Fair would never say you only get one skip the line pass for a major attraction like Six Flags does. They let you ride all you want...Which is the way it should be imo. Also, I've been to a lot of Cedar Fair parks on holidays and have never paid $150. Not saying that it doesn't happen, it's just never happen to me. And I really don't have an issue with the reserve system...That's fine. My problem is when they only give you one skip the line time. In SFOG's case...They have three rides they do this with. But I am glad to see they are including all the rides on the regular pass now and not forcing you to buy the platinum. That's a plus!

Most likely yes. Here at SFOT, skip the line passes can be used on any ride, even Texas Giant.

Yeah, just checked and TC will be eligible for one free skip the line pass. I also just checked SFOT site too and you're right, there are no restrictions on the rides at SFOT. You can ride all you like there...I wish SFOG would get with that system.

I just got temporarily excited that I may have a chance to visit this park (just found out work is sending me to Atlanta for training in May, but checked the hours and the days I'll be in the area the park closes at 7 (and where I'll be doing training is on the other side of the city so it would take until almost 6 to get to the park).

 

Sad times. Maybe some other time in the eventual future.

If you've already got a season pass I say go for it. I would totally drive there every day all week and have 5 hours in the park total.

If I did I would probably go every night after training, I don't have the pass though, so I guess I will just have to wait till next time I'm in Atlanta

SFOG needs to do something with the Whistlestop/DejaVu area in the corner of Lickskillet soon. Ever since the playground from Whistlestop Park was transported to BB BoomTown, that area has been dormant since then and mother nature took over it with all the overgrown plant life. I have a prediction that the 2019 attraction will go in that "unused" area of SFOG. Now for the attraction, remember this is just a prediction but i'm thinking maybe a pendulum ride like the Riddler Revenge at SFOT and the Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth at SFDK will fit nicely in that area, and since it is in the western themed section of the park, give it a western theme. If a GIB could fit in that area than a pendulum could too. But anyways thats my prediction for the park's possible future attraction.

Good point! I was really hoping they save that spot for a 12th coaster and put the swinging pendulum somewhere different. Maybe they will finally tear down the axis arena and put a riddlers revenge there or use that spot for a new coaster!

There's actually lots of room in the area behind the former Whistlestop and the current go-carts including a large section of parking lot which is never used except for trams. I agree a Giant Discovery (pendulum) would be a great fit in that area but it seems there's also room for a coaster someday. They won't tear down Axis arena. It is used not only for Fright Fest haunts but there are also cheerleading competitions and other events there.

 

I still think 2019 will be a Hurricane Harbor expansion, which is badly needed. (And watch them tease and cross-promote it with the Twisted Cyclone / new Coastal section!)
