Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^ This is a pretty common bit of advice, but make sure you get there early. They usually open Twisted Colossus a half hour before the park's official opening so you can usually get 3-4 rides with almost no wait if you're one of the first ones in the park.

 

Not sure which hotel you're staying at, but I stayed at the Wingate right down the street from the park 2 years ago and felt perfectly comfortable dropping my luggage off with them while I visited the park. I got everything back.

That's where I'm staying. I stayed there two years ago as well and I did do that, but I didn't feel right about it. I got all my stuff back so I don't know why I'm suddenly concerned about it... but you raise a good point so maybe I'll just do that. I'll be there early enough to get in there by 9:30 and get a bunch of laps on TC, at least that's the plan. If I cut out dealing with a locker maybe I'll get more than one ride in.

Labor Day Saturday was a ghost town. We rode every coaster, Monster Mansion, Flume and Sky Bucket (including 3 re-rides on Twisted Cyclone) in 3 hours without Flash Pass. [emoji38]
Yet Sunday was packed. Grr!

 

Wanted to go Sat but too many other commitments to get there. Now you pour salt in the wound.

Yep, that's going to be my plan for Sunday, I'm going to pop into the park Saturday late afternoon / evening to process all my membership stuff so I can go right in with no problems for spins on Twisted Cyclone in the morning (when, thankfully, the weather is forecast to still be nice).

If you bring your bag into the park, you'll miss the chance at a few walk-ons on Twisted Cyclone while you put your bag in the locker.

As I found out a few weeks ago, the queue building for Twisted Cyclone is so small that even a full queue could only hold a 40-45 minute wait. I waited in that once since Flash Pass required me to wait 30 minutes per ride and I wanted to double up at the end of the day.

6. Do you guys think I'll look like a douchebag riding the mine train alone? [emoji38]

 

Of course not. I've done it before. There is no shame in riding anything they allow you to safely ride...at any park.

Amen. Ride whatever you want.

^ Are they not allowing even glasses w/ a strap on TC? I just recently got a strap and have been enjoying being able to see on rides again!

 

We had problems with the Flash Pass. 1h30 min wait in an unprotected line just to buy. .

 

Whoa whoa whoa was this @ opening? I'll be there this weekend and have full intentions of buying one right @ opening, especially if its a 90 minute wait!

 

At opening the line looked like 20 min. I went straight to TC and it opened 5 minutes early. I tried to see how lines were going to be for the day and decided it was a FP day around 2 hours after opening, but the line was huge by then.

Well that settles that. I'll be hitting up FP immediately after early morning RMC action. (I'm actually thinking of going against my own advice and just buying it online tomorrow to save a few bucks)

Guys, that was a trick question. My mine train lovin-ass is definitely taking a spin on Lift Hill: The Ride.

Just buy online while in the park.

during the day, i was asked to put my glasses in zippered pocket on TC.

 

not sure if that's standard or not, but they asked me.

 

They had no problems with my glasses with a atrap on Twisted Cyclone.

 

The only ride that restricted all glasses was the Joker kiddie coaster.

So I'm curious as to what exactly is the reasoning behind this? I'd have thought it'd be the opposite way around.

 

I wore my sun glasses (with Cedar Point strap) on every coaster including TC and the Joker family coaster. The Flash Pass line attendant on Joker did mention to remove my glasses, but I honestly thought they were joking and the ride attendants didn't say anything. Strange policy.

Joker opened for like an hour on Saturday and then closed for the day. Luckily we got on it since we went there early on knowing it had awful capacity.

 

We never ride kids coasters but that one looked super fun (and it was). Apparently it goes 30 mph so I feel like if the ride is faster than Space Mountain then it's socially acceptable to ride it.

If your item falls or comes off just be reminded they are not going to get it not even at the end of day. Cellphones are the problem because everyone wants that item back then. They cleaned up TC and removed the weave for the Labor day weekend but you can clearly see more hats and items below the ride

Some girl in front of me lost a cell phone on TC Sunday right before close. Saw it go flying on the turn after the first drop.

They were definitely enforcing it the day I was there and I had to keep them in my pocket, which seemed a lot less secure than on me with a strap.

Hey locals. A few final questions in advance of my weekend visit:

 

1. How many rides have onride photos and is it worth it to get the all-day photo pass thing?

 

2. Do they allow single riders on the Sky Buckets?

 

3. All day fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo are near the entrance/Scorcher, right? $8 for the day? I'm coming from the airport right to the park, are they gonna give me sh*t at the entrance for bringing all that in? Toiletries, etc? I'll just have a small backpack with just enough stuff for 3 days. Packing super light, and I can leave it @ the hotel until check in (staying down the street) but I almost feel better locking it up at Six Flags (I can't believe I just typed that). But yeah its the first time Ive gone to a park with more than just a wallet/phone/sunglasses.

 

4. Where is everyones fave places to eat? I ate at JBs last time and while the beer selection was good the food was average. Also where has the beer?

 

5. I know the answer but I'll ask anyway: Is Acro still down?

 

6. Do you guys think I'll look like a douchebag riding the mine train alone?

 

Thanks. P.S. I've been to this park before so no need to pile on the suggestions. I plan on having a relaxing day of marathoning Goliath and Mindbender with hopefully a bit of RMC in there as well.

 

1. The only on-ride photo rides are TC, Goliath, and The Log Jamboree. So there’s that. Lol

 

2. I’ve ridden the Sky Buckets solo several times so you’re good.

 

3. There are 2 locations with the all day bunnies. One near the guest relations office in the front and one near monster mansion. Depending on your bag size, you may be able to save a few dollars by just purchasing a $5 all day deal at one of the rides. While they only give you 2 hours at each ride. You can move your reservation around to the different rides during the day.

 

4. You can’t go wrong with JB’s but Macho Nacho is always a go to spot for me. They sell beer at JB’s, Macho Nacho, and the Gotham City Eatery.

 

5. Probably... but please let us know when you get out there because no one hasn’t mentioned it since my last update on the catch car not being at the top when I rode past a couple weeks ago.

 

6. Lift-Hill The Ride! Lmao! But I’m known around the park by employees as the Lone Ranger so I don’t think you riding anything solo will have you looking crazy. Lol

 

Enjoy your visit!

So I've worn my glasses with straps on every single ride today including the Joker family coaster. Park started off quiet but has gotten busy, nothing a platinum FP can't handle. Also, Twisted Cyclone is disgustingly sick. And I mean that in the best way possible.
