Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I’m glad Scorcher is finally getting some attention! I wonder why some parts are gray and some white? I know it was said possibly primer but I would think the gray is primer. What if it is white with differ color supports! That would really look nice!

I believe the gray sections are simply portions that have had the old paint sanded off so you are just seeing plain steel. Then the white is primer. That’s my guess anyway. I’m very curious to find out what the final color scheme will be!

That would make sense, considering how bad the paint had gotten. The only thing they could do was take it off and start over.

Hey everyone,

 

So as some of you know, I'm visiting Six Flags Over Georgia on Saturday the 30th, and I need advice! I'll only be there for about 5 hours (2:00 to 7:00), so keep that in mind when responding.

 

1. What is the best order to hit up the coasters and thrilling flat rides? I know that SFOG can get REALLY busy so the best advice possible for the short period of time is helpful. I'm not very knowledgeable on the non-coasters at SFOG, so give me your recommendations for what to ride here. Also the only credits I have at the park are GA Scorcher, Batman, Mind Bender, GASM, and DMT. Being the credit whore I am, DDD, Goliath, Joker, Superman, TwiCy and Blue Hawk to be on the list somewhere, plus re-rides on the other coasters.

 

2. What are the best restaurants for lunch and dinner? (best snacks in the park would be a nice bonus too )

 

3. "Magic" seats or the best rows/seats on coasters? I love trying multiple seats for the best possible ride so I always ask those questions when trip planning.

 

Thanks!

Keep in mind that March 30th is the first day for Spring Break in the Atlanta area. The place will be completely swamped with people (unless it's actually raining all day). You will likely need the Flash Pass (and not just the basic level either) in order to get all the rides in you're looking to do in 5 hours at that park. Of course I'd wait to get to the park to make the purchase. The last time I went there on a Saturday in the early part of the season, I was only able to get on 3 coasters the whole day (though we entered the park at 1pm and stayed til close).

 

Here are the prices for each level of Flash Pass for March 30:

^ I assume you mean "Joker's Funhouse" and not "Joker Chaos Coaster". . since the 2nd one is a Super Loops (fun, but not a coaster. . sorry Six Flags).

 

Expect: Superman, DDD, and Twisted Cyclone to have the longest lines from your list (DDD due to capacity, and Superman due to the loading times).

 

so.. yeah. . I'd splurge for Flash Pass, as you only have 5 hours. it will let you cut most of the lines and get on everything you want.

 

tho really no great loss if you skip Blue Hawk . .it's still terrible.

 

it's also good for many of the flats - in particular Monster Mansion (an insane classic "WTF" dark ride via boat), and Acrophobia - a unique stand up drop tower (that was down during my 1 prior visit to the park).

 

SFOG also has the best themed Wave Swinger (Gotham City Crime Wave) and a great version of Justice League (where all aspects of it were working on our visit).

 

oh, and the river raft ride here, Thunder River? WILL get you *soaked*.. so plan accordingly with a baggie for your phone/wallet.

Like others have said, you'll need a Flash Pass to do everything in just 5 hours. Dare Devil Dive in particular is guaranteed to have a 1.5-2 hour wait if the park has any sort of crowd.

 

For the best seats, I really like the back rows on Goliath, Twisted Cyclone, or Mind Bender. But those rides are so good that I'd recommend you ride at least twice so you can try both the front and back.

Yeah... Plan for at least the Gold level of Flash Pass.

 

I waited a long while for Joker Funhouse Coaster and I'll be hard-pressed to ride a coaster "for the credit" ever again. On the other hand, Blue Hawk was a pleasant surprise.

^^ Thanks for the help everyone. I was able to talk my family into buying a Gold Flash Pass so I'm thankful for all the recommendations.

 

^ I thought Pandemonium was going in that old lot that was cleared out next to Goliath's queue? Or is that something else?

In looking at the new 2019 map (pdf); I noticed a few more new things:

 

-Membership lounge (looks like it is in the former Miss Dixie Depot)

 

-new on-ride photos for Mindbender

 

-new 'refill stations' scattered around the park

 

I will be there this weekend - weather permitting!

Just a heads up for anyone planning a trip to SFoG tomorrow, March 9th. It will likely rain throughout the day. Bring Umbrellas. Or nothing if you're me and don't care because it's just water. Have A safe trip!
