Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^ I gotta admit that was one of the first thoughts that came to my mind when I saw the vines. I'm not 100% sold on it happening, but good God it would be awesome. Two RMCs at my home park sounds like a dream come true.

If it actually is themed to Poison Ivy, I don't think it would go in the old Splashwater Falls location... I'm thinking the new rides going where the stunt show in Gotham City was. They were in the middle of tearing that down when I was there last weekend, so it would make sense.

Poison Ivy is a Batman character, right? So Gotham would make sense.

 

What's the latest w/ the Splashwater Falls site? Is it gone? They doing anything there?

^^ this is an odd post. . . you're posting that you're happily breaking a direct request from a ride operator.. .because you feel you know better?

 

why not just get a glasses strap, if you're so dead set on wearing your glasses on a ride?

 

 

 

What I was trying to point out was how a single ride-op could say no glasses on a specific ride but then you go on a ride like Batman (which is WAY More intense than Mindbender) and the ride-op will tell you that it's fine to wear your glasses but then when you go back to Mindbender when the ride-ops change shifts, they'll tell you its alright. they used to tell you to not wear glasses on Dare Devil Dive but now they allow you to them now. It just kind of makes me so bewildered, one thing that I don't understand is why they allow you to wear glasses on Superman, the one ride where you MIGHT need to take your glasses off on. Six Flags needs to either ban glasses on all the rides or none of the rides. no more of this random chance.

It seems like Mindbender has gotten faster as it has gotten older. I for one am glad that the trims / blocks kick in like they do. Untrimmed going into that last loop would have airtime galore, but then you'd be unconscious pulling into the station . Still one of the best rides ever to me (I've been riding it since it was new.)

I am quite glad that the trims were on otherwise, that loop would have been uncomfortable. but the downside is the lack of airtime.

 

I think the reason why it was on the day I went was due to the unseasonable heat, hopefully it won't be so bad in September

 

I do wonder though why the bottom of the horizontal loop has such a rattle? is it due to the waterfall making the track rust in that part of the ride or is it just because of the amount of Gs? I've been wondering that for quite some time.

^ That 2nd horizontal loop has always been VERY forceful - I'm under the assumption it is from the G's.

 

I didn't realize they were tearing down the Batman arena! When I've gone this year I've been with my little guy and we haven't ventured into Gotham City as although he is only 3 - he wants to ride all of the big rides and gets upset that he isn't tall enough for Batman. He's just hit the 42" mark and I'm debating on taking him on Mindbender. Not because he would be scared (he is fearless,) but because of the super heavy g forces at the bottom of the "2nd loop - downward helix" and the last loop. Thoughts??

 

I'd love to see a Poison Ivy themed ride!

The kid is tall enough and wants to ride and you're worried about some measly g-forces? What the hell kind of coaster dad are you?

You're all worried about rollercoasters? You've got a 3-year-old that's 42" tall, you should be calling the NBA. That's 95th percentile for a 4-year-old!

It's funny that you take the coaster community as an athletic bunch.

Talked to a friend. Its something RMC, but im not sure if its Freefly or Raptor, but Poison Ivy is the theme.
A 3rd Golden Lasso/Railblazer clone?

That'd be cool, but capacity would suck.

 

 

Free Fly? That's not really RMC. And only 1 built in 10 yrs? Doubtful.

Freespin is still S&S, not RMC. Likely since SF already has 7.

 

RMC T-Rex would be the alternate to raptor, but there aren't any yet and I doubt this will be the first. A 3rd raptor clone is the only likely RMC option.

 

 

We'll know soon I guess.

The only thing Six Flags Over Georgia has done consistently over the past 20 years is built the smallest of everything. I don’t expect that to change. As long as the intensity is there I don’t care but just pointing that out. Our region has little competition so they can afford to downsize every addition. That being said, we have had pretty good additions!

 

I would love to see a launch coaster in our future.

Not the same. As far as I know it's S&S designed so built to their specs.

That's like calling the 737 a Sprit Aero (who builds the fuselage) instead of Boeing.

 

To count as RMC (to me) it needs to use one of their track designs. Topper, I-Box, T-Rex, or Raptor.
