Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

another flash pass question (sorry!)

 

Is Flash pass worth it at six flags over Georgia on Sunday 9/2 (labor day weekend?) I would normally buy it no thought at all since I'm traveling from Cleveland (carowinds + SFoG trip), but there are several rides that say "one time only" on their site, even with the most expensive platinum option, is this true, or does that "one time" apply to the regular / gold options?

 

Batman, dare devil dive, and twisted cyclone one time only... at that point not sure if the pass is worth it. thoughts?

 

thanks

I can give you my thoughts. I've been a good amount this year. If you are at the front gates 30 minutes before they open, you'll be able to knock out all the credits by noon or 1:00pm. Twisted opens 30 min before listed opening most days. Ride it a few times before rope drop. Then just knock everything out one by one. At rope drop, Scorcher will be a walkon. Dare Devil Dive will be next and a near walk on. Then grab Mindbender and Batman. You wont have any lines. Head back to Superman next. You might have to wait a 20 minutes or so depending on when you get there. Then GASMachine, Blue Hawk, skybuckets over next to the mine train and grab it. Then, knock out Goliath. That's optimal but prob not even necessary.

 

If it's anything like Memorial day weekend, the park will be dead in the mornings. We were surprised how long it took people to show up that weekend.

 

Yesterday was free military day at SFOG. Active and up to 3 guests were free to get in. 45 minutes after the rope drop I was sitting on Goliath taking re-rides without leaving the station. It was dead until 1 or 2 pm.

 

Heavy church areas. Sundays are usually light for much of the day.

 

The bad news is food ops were terrible yesterday. Chicken wing place wasn't even open at noon. JB Sports Grill wasn't open at 12:30pm. Understaffed and not opening on time or very delayed.

Thanks for the advise but I do have a question. You’re saying they open the park / twisted cyclone 30 minutes early? Do you need a special membership or anything to get in early?? I have the basic gold season pass from six flags great America and I’m not sure if my friends will have a good pass or not.

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??

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 are right. He's already a little adrenaline junkie. Took him to White Water this weekend to switch things up a bit. He had a blast but damn was it exhausting.

4D is my guess. Not excited about it.

 

I'll buy the season flash pass if they say Raptor. That ride would bring people to the park and make it a destination for a couple years.

Oh maaan I wouldn’t care if it were themed to batboy if it’s a raptor. I’ve ridden a couple of freespins though and they felt like 2 totally different experiences. I found one not that great but the 2nd at Great Adventure was pretty decent! Either is a go for me!

I'm not saying I think is what it'll be, as I've been on the S&S FreeSpin for a while. But with the new clues, and news of the Axis Arena removal, I now wonder whether a Raptor themed to Poison Ivy might be what's coming. I measured it out, and if it's a clone of WW at SFFT, it would definitely fit at an angle in that plot where Axis is, behind The Joker, and stretching almost to Batman. Again, that's probably grander than we should be expecting at SFOG this year, but it seems like it's still a possibility at least.

If you all were gamblers, would you bet on six flags being open / rides running on Sunday based on hurricane dorians path? We’re flying into Atlanta on Friday afternoon and planned carowinds for Saturday and sfog for Sunday, fly out Monday, but we can detour to Dollywood Sunday instead, decisions decisions... stupid Mother Nature

The last time one had a path heading for Atlanta the park shut down, and I think they announced the closure on that Friday, so watch SFOG social media.

Weather forecast looks clear for this weekend. There's a couple bring a friend days this weekend so it may be decently crowded between that and the, as of now, very nice weather.

The most recent track I'm looking at (released at noon eastern) shows it off the coast of Florida on Monday, with the potential track area barely in Georgia.

 

I think you should be fine. Depending on how much lead time you need to adjust plans, keep up-to-date and be ready to adjust up to your deadline.

 

If you're willing to drive to Dollywood on Sunday, why don't you instead swap SFOG and Carowinds (SFOG on Saturday, Carowinds on Sunday)?

I like this idea, as carowinds will probably be less likely impacted on Sunday. Guess I’ll cancel my hotels and see what the model is predicting when we take off Friday!
