Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

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 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!

 

 

Are you talking about Carowinds on 9-7 or 9-8? It might interest you there's an ACE event on the 7th with ERT and behind the scene tours on CS and Fury.

Two Villainous New Thrill Rides Coming to Six Flags Over Georgia in 2020

 

New Attractions Expand Gotham City Section to Seven Spectacular Rides

 

AUSTELL, GA. — August 29, 2019 — Six Flags Over Georgia—the Thrill Capital of the South—in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC, announces two, new innovative ride experiences for the 2020 season. Catwoman Whip and Poison Ivy Toxic Twister will be the latest additions to the park’s impressive lineup of ultimate heart-pumping thrills for guests of all ages. The two exciting attractions, new theming and revamped food and shopping locations will debut in the new Gotham City section next year.

 

“Every year, Six Flags creates innovative, new ride experiences for thrill-seekers of all ages,” said Park President Dale Kaetzel. “Catwoman Whip and Poison Ivy Toxic Twister will be sensational new additions to our ride arsenal that features the biggest and best variety of rides in the region.”

 

Guests will soar seven stories high as they prepare for an adrenaline-charged flight on Catwoman Whip, featuring:

• A super-sized wheel spinning horizontally, as a giant arm lifts and tilts the wheel to a vertical position;

• High-speed rotations spin round and round, reaching heights of 67 feet in the air; and

• An exhilarating flight in 24 open-air seats with feet dangling below.

Poison Ivy Toxic Twister sends 36 riders swirling on a dizzying journey, featuring:

• A giant center rotating arm rotates riders in pods as they experience centrifugal force;

• Pods spin counter clockwise, while the ride turns in the opposite direction; and

• Riders in groups of three, all connected in 12 clusters, twist and churn at high speeds.

Six Flags White Water

Six Flags White Water Atlanta, the Southeast’s Largest Waterpark, will debut Python Plunge, a striking five-story water slide with multiple swirling discs and adrenaline-pumping drops. The massive water slide features two-person rafts that slither along a 500-foot course and careen around giant saucer-shaped turns before sending guests plunging into the pool below.

Yeah, compared to what many (myself included) thought SFOG was getting, it's a little underwhelming. But I love what they're doing with that Gotham City area back there, and while Scramblers aren't really my thing anymore, those new Endeavors look awesome! Also, note that there are other "exciting announcements" coming soon. Probably won't be much, but this park already looks to be one of the best in the chain. I really hope to finally make it out here next year!

I thoght for sure you guys were getting an S&S 4D. Looks like I was wrong, but these are nice additions none-the-less. I see Supergirl will be the 24 seat model like the one in St. Louis. I'm wodering if Over Texas might be the only park in the chain to ever have the 48 seat version.

I still don't understand why anyone thought they would get a new coaster when Cyclone still has the "new coaster smell" on it. The park never alluded to it, there was no big teaser campaign.

Wishful thinking...

I think as long as the Splashwater Falls area remains unused, speculation every year or two will involve some coaster taking its spot

Discovery Kingdom added its fourth coaster in five years and I don't recall any major teasers from them.

Not a coaster but I love these additions. I still miss the Wheelie and am glad we are getting a 2nd generation. Also nice to see White Water getting some love. All this plus more announcements yet tut o come should make for an interesting 2020.

These Endeavors are a whole lot of fun and the Toxic Twister is something that I’m sure the whole family will love. Good job, SFOG. This looks like it will be a great addition.

Kinda funny how both of these attractions had a similar presence in the past of the park’s history. With wheelie being removed years ago for Skyscreamer & Shake, Rattle n Roll removed for Dare Devil Dive. So I guess the park has had their scrambler in storage for all these years and are pulling it out again?

 

I miss it’s former location because it was a great way to get into some air conditioning, and who doesn’t love a scrambler in the dark. Most excited about the Zamperla ride, since I’ve never done one.

SFOG has been flat depraved for years. I think my only real issue with this announcement (albeit it is minor) is I kinda wish the park's flat rides were a little spread out more. I'll still take this any day vs not getting new rides though.

 

Additional exciting announcements regarding 2020 will be announced soon.

 

Can this please be a refurbishment of Mindbender so that it can go back to regularly running two trains again? Please ?

Is Python Plunge actually going to be a water coaster or did they just use water coaster footage?

 

I ask because they don’t mention it being a coaster, having uphill propulsion, and they do mention two person rafts. Sounds like a normal water slide with the disc curves...

Yeah I didn’t pay close attention this morning so I was excited to see a water coaster finally in the Atlanta area, but no. It’ll still be a good slide. Maybe Hurricane Harbor will get one eventually!
