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

If I can't drive my own car through a big, bright, orange plastic loop at 80 MPH then no sale. 🤣  

Coaster Studios is a little whiny douchebag.

Is there usually a significant back up trying to leave the parking lot around closing on a weekend? I have a 10:30 flight and the park closes at 7:30, so I'm trying to gauge when to leave.

 

I'm leaning towards yes to be safe, but some parks can get people out of the lot much more efficiently.

 

your issue is not going to be the traffic leaving the park. . it's going to be Atlanta Traffic headed towards the airport.

 

considering how crowded the Atlanta Airport is (for getting thru security), and how crowded the Atlanta freeways *always* are?

 

to be safe, I'd head out of the park (ie: walking towards the gates) at 6pm.

 

that's just me, i'm in the better early than late group of folks.

Agreed. One or two more spins on a coaster is not worth cutting it close for your flight.

Hi, New Here. anyone know the status of Acrophobia at the moment or the reason why its down?

 

Acro has been closed for atleast a month now. I rode past the park yesterday on the way to and from work and the hook/gondola carrier/lift was at the top of the tower so I'm sure it was closed yesterday as well. My guess is that it was hit by lightning during one of the many storms we had last month. Considering how long it has been closed, I'm assuming that they are either waiting on a part to come in from Intamin or they may have just decided to leave it closed for the remainder of the season.

 

I am also saddened by how long it has been closed. Acro is usually my first ride after entering the park.

So I am planning my 3rd-ever trip to the park in Mid september (on a sunday)... I haven't been there since 2001, so I think they built a ride or two since then. Based on what I was reading, it sounds like we should go to Wicked Cyclone first and then DDD. Any other advice on this? There will be some rides I can't ride, but the wife can. Does anyone know if the train has re-opened? I would hate to miss it.

 

I have a six flags great adventure gold pass, (Even though I live in Ohio) and I want to renew it, but if I renew, does that mean I have to go back to SFGrAd and renew it, or is it automatic? I ask, because I might just buy a whole new pass during the sale and just process it in Georgia.

 

That takes me to my next question....

 

Does SFoG have any passholder perks (early ride times especially)

 

Also to you locals... any advice on Lake Winnie is appreciated, too... again, it's been since 2001 since I was last there.

This is probably a dumb question but does this park have wifi? And if so is it any good?

 

And Acro is running, yes?

 

No WIFI. I have AT&T and the service sucks most of the time.

 

From what I have read...Acro is not running yet.

I agree I would ride Twisted Cyclone and DDD first.

 

Yes, the train has reopened.

 

I would just buy a whole new pass at SFOG as they don't automatically renew.

 

You're probably too late in the year for Passholder perks, but it's possible they could add something that hasn't been posted yet.

 

I can't help you with Lake Winnie, sorry.

Not a local, but I was just at Lake Winnie this past weekend. Definitely ride the Boat Chute first. I was the first rider of the day and within a half hour, it had a full queue already. I then recommend hitting Wacky Factory next since it had a full queue shortly after opening as well.

 

Cannon Ball opened 2 hours late due to mechanical difficulties but if you go there third I think you should be able to get a few rides before people get back there. Also do not miss Conestoga or OH-Zone. Both are insane.

 

SFOG opened Twisted Cyclone a half hour before the posted opening. I was on the first train. If you don't get a Flash Pass, I'd say run over to Dare Devil Dive after since it quickly built up a big wait.

 

And Acro is running, yes?

 

It was down all of Sunday.

is it a full train?

 

or still that sad little 2 car thing they were running when I was there last month.

 

that's not a train..that's a glorified Trolley.

 

I don't usually ride the train but if I remember correctly it had at least 4 or 5 cars the last time I saw it running.

Answering questions from above as a local...

 

Acrophobia is still down for the count as of Sunday. The Six Flags Railroad is running though. I believe there are 3 cars attached to the engine (if not two - cant remember as its been a couple of weeks since I've been out there).

 

Visiting on a Sunday should do you a favor as the crowds are normally light but definitely hit Twisted Cyclone, Dare Devil Dive, and then Superman as those rides usually get the longest lines.

 

Other than that, you should be fine and no Flash Pass should be needed to enjoy your day at the park.

Twisted Cyclone the best RMC? Not even close, not even top 5, around 8 or 9.

 

Have you ridden Twisted Cyclone? Sure, it may not be as good as Steel Vengeance, but it's damn close.

 

 

Ride the black car back seat and I promise you the new name for this ride will be "Steel Vengeance Jr" I promise you that. Black car faster than red

and I confirmed that with a ride operator.

What about that Sunday of Labor Day weekend? That particular day is advantageous only because I wouldn't have to take a vacation day afterward to drive home (because I sure as heck am not driving six hours after a full day at the park).

 

The Sunday of Labor Day Weekend shouldn't be too crowded considering that the park is open the next day. Since alot of people are going to be off work, I expect the park to be unbelievable crowded on Monday. As stated above, head straight to Twisted Cyclone to get a couple of laps in, then head to either Superman or Dare Devil Dive. Since you'll reach DDD first, you might as well get that one out of the way and then head directly to Superman as these two rides get the longest lines. Good luck!

 

 

Make sure you ride the black car. There is a difference from the slower red car.

I have "rode it out" 58 times already with the majority of the rides in the back row. I've also ridden in both trains and I don't really notice a difference.

Six Flags Over Georgia, the Thrill Capital of the South, will launch an exciting, new high-flying attraction, Pandemonium, the tallest swinging pendulum ride in the Southeast. Swirling through the clouds at an astonishing 15 stories, this impressive giant disk will reach speeds up to 70 miles per hour, as it whips back and forth, higher and higher, giving guests an exhilarating ride experience as they soar high above the Atlanta city skyline. Pandemonium will be the centerpiece of the park’s new ScreamPunk themed area, featuring revamped food locations and shopping experiences. ScreamPunk is a special Six Flags twist on the popular Steampunk subgenre.

COMING IN 2019: Pandemonium Swinging Pendulum Thrill Ride

At a towering 147 feet in the air, Pandemonium reaches speeds up to 70-miles-per-hour, as it swings back and forth—higher and higher giving riders an exhilarating riding experience as they soar high above the Atlanta city skyline.

I love the Giant Discoveries, so automatically it's a fantastic addition for me. Interesting to see that they're getting the Screampunk theming out there. I actually really like the Pandemonium logo done up in that style, I think it looks way better than the Pandemonium coasters' logos. Color theme is pretty nice too.

 

More importantly, when the hell I am getting down to this park? I keep hearing and seeing nothing but good things about it (DDD's capacity notwithstanding), and frankly, it's been too damn long since I've been down Georgia way. I've got to put this on my must-do list for next year.

Six Flags seems to have purchased these giant discoveries in bulk and that's perfectly fine by me. They're awesome flats.

Not as good as our (SFSTL) Endeavor. Man, you guys got the shaft...
