A Monster Announcement: Historic Monster Plantation Takes Guests on a Whole New Journey

 

Six Flags Over Georgia announced today that the historic Monster Plantation adventure will undergo a major renovation to be unveiled as the new Monster Mansion in May 2009.

 

Since 1981, the Monster Plantation has been a tried and true staple for families visiting Six Flags Over Georgia. The iconic theme music, playful monster animatronics and family-friendly storyline has lured millions of visitors and consistently ranked among the most popular attractions. The new voyage will feature a slate of surprises, including new characters, music, interactive elements and a re-themed storyline. In addition, many of the original monsters will return to the Mansion.

 

“Monster Plantation has been a guest favorite for almost three decades, and we are thrilled to be able to recreate the experience,” said Melinda Ashcraft, Park President. “There is undoubtedly a lot of nostalgia associated with the ride, and the adults who rode it as children will now get to enjoy special memories with their own kids.”

 

Gary Goddard, world-renowned design consultant and founder of Gary Goddard Entertainment (GGE), created the original ride and will be responsible for the new production with many of the original designers assigned to the project. Goddard constructed the integral elements of the Georgia Aquarium, including the hub that leads to the aquarium's five exhibits and Deepo's Undersea 3D Wondershow. In 2007, GGE developed the Glow in the Park parade which lights up the night with an amazing display of imagery, music and magical performances at several Six Flags parks.

 

Six Flags Over Georgia is now selling 2009 season passes for the limited-time only price of $49.99 — the lowest price in four years. Guests who purchase a 2009 season pass will receive unlimited park admission not only in 2009, but also for the remainder of the 2008 season with special front-of-line entrance on Monster Plantation and free admission to see Dr. Fright's Frightorium Haunted House during this year's Fright Fest presented by SNICKERS®. Season pass holders will also be given special exclusive ride times next spring on the all-new Monster Mansion along with the value-packed 2009 coupon book with more than $300 worth of offers including five Bring-A-Friend-Free tickets. The park is currently open weekends and will be open Friday nights and Saturdays and Sundays in October. For more information on Monster Mansion or to purchase a 2009 season pass, please visit www.sixflags.com/overgeorgia.

This honestly says a lot to me about SF's management. It's along the lines of what they are doing to X2 and now SROS. They are showing that they actually care about their current attractions. To me, that's almost as good as putting in a brand new attraction simply because it demonstrates how dedicated the management is to providing a high-quality experience. It's definitely a change of pace from the old management that just plopped rides down in random open spaces.

But will it have fire bursts?

I was always worried that this ride would get torn out and get replaced with some crappy Scooby Doo ride, so I think this is an excellent sign from the Six Flags management. It's awesome to see that they are going to commit money to such a unique attraction instead of just letting it go.

Hopefully they'll do something to Georgia Cyclone while they're working on Monster Plantation.

They already retracked it before this season and its been running MUCH better... at least it was up until June.

This is so cool to see and I am feeling optimistic about the new Six Flags management style. After years of simply adding new thrill rides to bring in the punters it's good to see them taking care of what they already have, especially much-loved rides like Monster Plantation.

 

Maybe they should add some new dark rides. Everybody loves a dark ride!

Yeah no drops...except...heh heh no really no drops. I wonder why theya re changing the name from plantation to mansion. It looks more like a plantation to me than anything and that has a better ring to it than mansion,

I remember going to the media/VIP event for Monster Plantation. I was a young pup back then and thought the monsters would eat my hat that night!

 

I used to love MP! I haven't been on it in years as I no longer live in Atlanta, but will head up next year to experience the change. I think Six Flags is doing a great thing by redoing this!

My friends and I cannot believe that SFOG is spending so frivolously on these lame "kiddie" rides (Monster Plantation and the new Thomas Town) and not giving us anything exciting like most of the other SF parks.

 

This park has the most disappointing "collection" (if you want to call it that) of flat rides of any park I have ever visited! Aside from some kiddie rides and a couple water rides, the only thing worth riding is a handful of decent coasters, Acrophobia and perhaps the wheelie.

 

Why aren't we getting a new coaster or flat ride for 2009 or even 2010???

Perhaps the partnership is working against the park nowadays, whereas it used to work great for the park (Scorcher, Superman, Acro, Deja Vu all within 5yrs)

 

'cause they could most certainly use a lot of non-coaster attractions, and Thomas Town would be nice for the kids if they actually tried

SFoG doesn't have a shooting dark ride, does it? If not, they could use one and maybe that's in as part of the Monster Plantation makeover? Pure conjecture here.

 

Heh, I still laugh at the video of Shannon going rock star with the MP theme song while scott recoils in "I'm very uncomfortable now".

The flat ride collection at SFoG blows away the non-existent flat ride collection at SFGAdv.
