Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

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!)

I also agree on your point that a Hurricane Harbor expansion is possible, I always wanted a lazy river at HH. And who knows maybe a premier rides Sky Rocket II will go in the Whistlestop/DejaVu area than a Giant Discovery. All in all, good point!

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

I always thought that would be a great location for a new Southern Star Amphitheater since they tore the other one down. Using the axis Arena for their music festivals is just embarrasing. I say tear down the Axis Arena and build new rides there in Gotham.

At least it doesn't seem as abundant as SF Magic Mountain. I recently watched a couple YouTube videos of several removed attractions where mother nature is taking over around the park. Although I think they're hidden enough to where you have to have a keen eye to identify these locations. It was pretty interesting.

Every time I go down into the Lickskillet area I get sad because I remember Deja Vu standing there next to the sky buckets. I still can't figure out why they would remove it after working so hard to get it running on a regular basis (Deja Vu ran DAILY in 2005, 2006, and 2007). If they put anything in that spot, I would hope that its a coaster with some type of launch. (thats really the only coaster type that SFOG is missing)

 

Considering how the only Intamin ride in the park is Acrophobia, it would be nice to see an Intamin launcher like Xcelerator (considering SFOG's 200 ft. height cap). Something with multiple trains and a few inversions would be a good fit for that area, especially if they take the time with the design like they did with Goliath.

I kinda wish they gave Deja Vu a second chance considering the GIB (Goliath) at New England works like a charm. It's location was special since when you walked down to Lickskillet you see this green/blue coaster with two massive vertical towers. I always imagined what it was like if Deja Vu was still here today. And yes, I agree on your point. SFOG does need a launch coaster, the thing is location, maybe a Premier rides Sky Rocket II could go in the Whistlestop/Deja Vu area?

OMG!! Yes please!! A Premier Sky Rocket II would be a GREAT fit for the park!!!

Yep! It is compact so I thought it would be a perfect addition considering the location it is in. But yet again, SFOG does need more flat rides so a Giant Discovery or a SkyWarp would be a great addition in that area too.

I never rode Deja Vu at SFoG, but I rode it several times during my trips to SFGam. The ride was intense and fun. Not only was it a great looking structure, but it had that intimidation factor as well. The backwards lift was by far my favorite park. Imagine how awesome it was to ride coasters like Deja Vu, Raging Bull, and Vertical Velocity (holding brake days), when I ventured out from SFSTL for the first time with some good friends. Those were the days...

 

As far as the launched coaster goes, you jerks are spoiled rotten... Everyone is drooling over Steel Vengeance. Meanwhile, I'd rather give the GA Cyclone a chance first, despite going to CP in mid May SFoG just got a fantastic addition. Although you will probably get another decent coaster before SFSTL does.

^The thing about SFOG's Vu was the placement. As SFOGchick stated, you were greeted by the green and blue towers as soon as you entered the Lickskillet area. Im not sure if you remember how tall they were, but man... I will never forget the first time I saw them. BEAUTIFUL! INTIMIDATING! MAJESTIC!!!

 

Maybe its the fact that I like the feeling of going backwards on a coaster, or maybe its the vertical lift (in either direction), or perhaps the chance of a mis-catch! , or maybe even getting stuck in the boomerang! (its possible!). But it was something about Vu. And it wasn't really rough, compared to its once red/now blue sister a few hundred feet away. /End GIB Fanboy Rant

 

And once upon a time we had Vu, SMUF, Goliath, Mind Bender,Scorcher, and Batman in one park.... NOW THOSE WERE THE DAYS!!

 

Dont get me wrong.... I am EXTREMELY excited about TwistedC!!!! I reached out to an old supervisor about Media Day but he hasn't responded. I would love to be there but I doubt it's gonna happen. I was one of the few people who actually liked the Georgia Cyclone - despite how it beat the breaks off of yo a**! LOL

 

I dont expect that we'll be getting a new coaster anytime soon, but I'm definitely not the only one who see's a launcher completing the lineup in the park. Maybe in a few more years... Maybe never... One can dream!

Imagine, just imagine if Vu was still here to this day with the new Twisted Cyclone, Blue Hawk, Dare Devil Dive, and Goliath. Oh and one last thing, did they sell any merchandise or shirts involving Déjà Vu at SFOG? Like Déjà Vu merchandise is what i'm saying. Just curious..

^I remember having a white Deja Vu T-Shirt. I have no idea what happened to it but I think my mom may still have hers stored in her attic. I'll ask her. LOL

 

Edit: I've seen that video on YT but I didn't like how the editing was cheap. And you could tell that the 2nd tower's ascend was pre-recorded and reversed by looking at Catcher-2.

Is it something like this? If not then this is the only Deja Vu shirt I could find on the Internet. Not a very fancy shirt imo.

Deja Vu was a fantastic coaster. It had lots of maintenance issues and went down often, but the park/chain gave up on that coaster model too quickly. There were a total of three of the GIB coasters at SF parks; all but one was sold off. I could never figure out why SFNE acquired the castoff from SFMM while the SFoG copy was sold to a South American theme park operator. But - all this happened under prior management, and during the chain's bankruptcy and debt reorganization. I have to believe SF would have kept their GIB's if todays powers-to-be had their say.

 

With all the awesome-ness of Twisted Cyclone coming our way this year, it will probably be a few years before this park gets its next coaster. I would love to see a launcher but I could also see an S&S 4D free-spin going in the former Whistlestop/Deja Vu area too.

Hi all! I recently relocated to Atlanta and made my first visit to SFOG yesterday. It was annihilated with people (90+ minutes for every ride) by ~11:30 am. When should I be going to the park to avoid these situations? Thanks for the help!

Sundays and during the early part of the week is much better than a Saturday . . .

Yeah it was just a basic t-shirt. I wish I would have gotten more Deja Vu merchandise but its not like they had a Deja Vu gift shop at the exit. LOL. It saddens me that a ride that great got so little attention from the park officials.

Rainy day at the park today and everything was a walk-on until the heavier rain started to fall which shut the big rides down. It looks like Twisted Cyclone’s track is complete! (From these angles at least). It also appears that they built a new structure adjacent to the queue building.

^ How could they have done the barrel roll on a straight drop vs the ones that turn to the drop?

 

Also that building looks like a new onride photo spot.

From what I’ve heard, that’s correct in terms of where the onride photo spot will be.

 

I was hoping they would use that area to have the queue expanded since it was pretty small originally. Now that the lockers are located in the same building, I wonder what plans they have incase of overflow situations.

^Thats been my question as well... I think they may have the queue going outside of the queue house into an outdoor switch-back area. Looking at the different construction photo's, you can see alot of open space back there.

I'm guessing they are gonna get their trains soon considering Twisted Cyclone opens in 33 days. P.S, when you leave the exit it will be a beautiful sight to see the train soar through the overbank turn in front of you.
