Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread

They already have at many of the parks, it's on SFOG facebook. My son just left for a shift at SFSTl so I will know when he gets home if employees are on the honor system like guests or have to show some sort of proof.

Honor system?  Show proof?  Masks aren't required of anyone at SF St Louis (or SFoG).

You're still spreading disinformation. You know damn well that Six Flags wants unvaccinated guests and employees to wear masks.

 

As a timestamp on this post, here's a screenshot of the current policy on the SFoG website:

Look dude, you're being an ass. I don’t care how you feel about masks, and I don't care what you do at a Six Flags park. I do care that you have been actively encouraging people on Six Flags threads to break Six Flags rules. 

 

When you are invited to someone's house and they ask you to take your shoes off in the mudroom, you don't ask "Is that a requirement or a recommendation?" You're a guest, and you do it just because your hosts invited you.

 

You know this. Quit being an ass.

Recommend is not the same as require.

tndank  is correct.

I said it's what Six Flags wants you to do. That's the definition of "recommend."

 

This is pointless to argue. The real danger is that someone who doesn't know any better will read the misleading statement and not bring a mask. Now that I've posted their policy, that is no longer a concern.

Geez. Didn't meant to start a s***storm. I realize they are not truly stopping anyone and asking. I was just wondering out loud if employees would be at least required to show anything or sign anything, if for no other reason than liability on the part of the park. The answer, as we all probably assumed, is no. Up to employees to be responsible or not, just like guests. I am not worried he is fully vaccinated, as is our whole family. I am however, a little surprised that so many parks dumped the rule for employees right away. I kind of expected them to make employees wear them a while longer. Not a judgement on whether they should or not, just thought they would.

You're cool, Kim. You didn't start anything. That dude has been going around various Six Flags threads lying and pretending the parks have lifted all mask rules. It's a dumb thing to say, but I guess he's bored or something.

 

Maybe a bit off topic for this thread, but on topic for your son: Missouri legislature just passed a bill that says businesses aren't liable if people get Covid unless they actively try to give people Covid. With that law in place, it makes sense that the St. Louis park wouldn't bother with anyone proving anything. I have much more to say about Moleg's "Sucks to be you" attitude, but I suppose I ought to just leave it there. 😄

So thank you very much for the advice. We did stop at Lake Winnie since we were literally driving right by it. He got Cannonball but the wild mouse and wacky worm were closed, so we just sent him in to get his credit and then drove on into Atlanta which ended up working out perfectly for what we were trying to do. I think the lady at the ticket booth was rather annoyed with us, she kept asking if we were going in and didn't seem to get it that we were just waiting while he rode one coaster, lol. This little park could certainly use a lot of love and only about half the rides were open so a $30 charge to get in was kind of bold but it was just a one time stop off for us so whatever.

That is my home park and I do agree it needs a lot of love. He did not miss anything with the wild mouse being closed. It is insanely rough to the point it can be painful. The $30 for about half the rides may sound absurd but not surprising for them. It always seems like this park has something silly going on. There was the time where you would get a sticker on entry and you had to wear it if you lost yours during the day nothing happened. Then there was the time you could not get in if you were under 21 unless you were with someone at least 21 or you were with a group. I think someone in the military was even denied entrance. They used to also have a special entrance for groups (which is fine) but even though the park opened at 10, they would not open the group entrance until 11.

I haven't posted anything that isn't true.  And you continue to have it out for me for some reason.  Each time you post evidence supporting me.  We can disagree here.  But the fact remains, masks are not required of anyone at many Six Flags now.  I have not suggested anyone do anything against park rules.

They have lifted the mask rules. Masks are no longer REQUIRED.

They might recommend or even request one but not required like before, entirely voluntary. Pretty simple to understand.

They also stopped the other restrictions, no temperature checks, no reservations (no capacity limits), no distancing. Back to 2019 operations. Well except for allowing masks which I'm certain would not have been allowed before. 

 

But, while I refused to go to the park while masks were required, you are free to not go now that masks aren't.

I guess they are trying to prevent lawsuits, but cannot imagine it would hold up in court anyway if you willingly went to a public place. Other than that I am opting out of this obviously unwinnable discussion 😉

Weird. First impressions were not helped by the number of houses with Confederate flags flying that you had to pass on the way to the park, but I can hardly blame the park for what people do on their own property.

I agree it's gonna be packed.

but at least at SFOG, there are a number of things that a 5 year old would love to do, and don't often pull really big lines (such as the Carousel, the antique cars on carousel hill) in addition to the stuff that is going to end up having huge lines -   heck, I'd consider Flash Pass so you can skip the line with him for Monster Mansion.  

Yeah Bert - luckily there is a lot that he can do and enjoy.  I've spent more time on the Antique Cars in the last year and a half than I spent on them in the last 30 years!

So....still no word on Mindbender?

Woah. Slow down there. Clearly they need to start taking down the water ride that has been SBNO for years before opening Mindebender. 

This park is awful.

Haha @tndank, fair enough.  Just going to be headed to this park on the 23rd and was hoping for some Schwarzkopf classic goodness.

Went to the park today and got there a little after 12:00. Lots of people for an overcast day. Probably the shortest wait to get into the park I've ever had, much better than opening day! We only Todd a couple of rides before leaving due to our hunger and not wanting to wait an hour and a half for overpriced food. Ride operations were on point and the only slowdowns experienced were due to guests and not the ops. There was visible work happening on Mind Bender but no sign of new trains or testing going on. It looks sooooo good now that it's all painted. I hope they get it open before the end of the summer.

Riddler Mindbender started testing yesterday.  I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link to the Instagram user that caught it, but it's an encouraging sign.

The only thing I didn't realize with this update is that the trains were shortened from 7 cars to 5 cars, assuming they're currently testing the final trains.  I wasn't expecting this update to reduce the capacity like that.

Thinking about making my initial visit to this park ever in November the weekend before Thanksgiving.  What rides are typically closed for Holiday in the Park?  I guess as long as Twisted Cyclone, Goliath, Mindbender, and Dare Devil are open I am more than happy to visit.

That's great to hear!! On the note of the shorter trains, I'm pretty sure there's going to be 3 of them again instead of 2. Will they use all 3? Probably not.

I was there the week after Thanksgiving last year and every coaster was open except for Great American Scream Machine.
