Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^^^Seriously? Did you expect a Six Flags to do something that was a prototype for the US? Come on. At least be excited that we are getting something new and it isn't a cookie cutter coaster like the THBS that was rumored. It is only the 3rd Eurofighter in the US! For one, I am super excited about this and glad that we are finally getting something new.

Is it wrong to wish it was the other eurofighter model instead? (I'll stand corrected if the artwork proves to be deceiving)

 

 

 

Chuck, I was also kind of thinking along the line of GCIs (with the exception of Prowler, of course ) and B&M hypers. While I enjoy them, they're all rather similar, and have popped up everywhere. I'm sensing the eurofighters are starting to follow suit. Oh well, just my humble opinion.

 

Don't get me wrong. It'll be a nice addition to the park, and I'm very thankful it's not Tony Hawk. That's all I got.

Nice report. That’s cool that they’re alerting guests of changing elevations. If only there were some kind of ride that could magically take guests up or down that steep hill near Lickskillet on

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 t

I didn't see the photo or video or whatever of what you are all talking about, but standard operating procedure on Manta at SWO is after the trains go into flying position, all ops on platform are sup

Well... I was expecting a Tony Hawk so this is a pleasant surprise.

 

That's about as excited as I can get though. What's up with the way they are marketing this ride? No POV, no layout, a pretty minimal page set up on their website... and they're saying it's the first beyond vertical drop in the country.... Did they do any research? It just seems like the marketing department threw some half-ass thing together last minute.

^My thought exactly. However, I can atleast tell if that layout picture is accurate, this is basically the same exact thing as Anubis just with a lift/drop instead of a launch/tophat. It has the drop, dive loop, weird turnaround, immelman, block brake, then a turn or 2 and a final roll. Still cool, and I will definitely try to ride it next year! Obviously they have an animation though, so I'd be nice to see it!

If you're talking about Huracan style with the six seater trains and everything, there's still a chance. Being a huge nerd with only like a 42.537% chance of getting laid, I can tell you that the artwork was made in No Limits. The thing is, NL hasn't been updated in a couple years, so it doesn't have the Huracan trains, just the standard old Eurofighter ones. Although for capacity reasons, wouldn't it be better to have the old style?

Looks great, can't wait to ride it.

 

Is this basically the same type of ride as mystery mine(minus the scenery of course)? If so, this is a very unique ride for a six flags park, or this country. I believe that mystery mine is the only eurofighter in the states.

Aw, come on now. With information like that at your disposal, you shouldn't be selling yourself short with your calculations. 42.53% seems rather low.

 

But yeah, I was basically thinking the launched 6-seater model would be a nicer fit for this park. SF didn't call me for my opinion though.

It makes me wonder if they ment to say steepest instead of first since they really didn't say the angle.

 

I can't really make out much from the picture posted, but it doesn't seem too big but it does seem unique.

^^I noticed that as well. My guess is it will not OPEN with Flashpass, but flashpass will be added either later in the season or 2nd season for sure.

 

Just a way for them to make sure they have the capacity they need to give it Flashpass.

Looks like they slightly changed the name of the skycoaster too - instead of "Fearless Freeps Dare Devil Dive" its now listed as "Fearless Freeps Dare Devil Skycoaster" on the website. I'm sure it will be fun enough, and like Tyler said, possibly one of the best rides in the park

I think the whole claim that they have the first beyond vertical drop is meant to be read as the first beyond vertical drop on a coaster with three inversions in the US. I think the other Eurofighters and Macerick both have 2 inversions and Fahrenheit has something like 6. Horray for marketing getting creative.

Despite the fact that the marketing and build up for this ride (not to mention the name, identical to the Skycoaster) were horrific, this is a pretty exciting addition for SFOG. I can't wait to see what a beyond vertical dive is like, seeing how I haven't already ridden three others in this country.

^^maybe they meant the first euro fighter in the US with a beyond verticle dive, oh well, I can give them a pass on it Looks to a great ride and addition.

 

sounds like a southeast bash is in order with SFOG and BGT, just sayin'!

^Nope, it definitely looks like they mean the first beyond vertical dive in the country period. Just like with trying to sell Texas Giant as a wooden coaster after the rehab, Six Flags is failing miserably at knowing what the hell they're talking about. At this point they're just flat out lying.

 

EDIT: This came from SFOG's facebook page regarding the gaffe.

 

Sorry about that. It’s the country’s first beyond vertical coaster with a PAUSE element. We’re updating our materials to avoid any further confusion. Thanks.

 

Can I get a yawn with a side of ?

Country's first beyond vertical drop huh?

 

 

Yes, clearly they didn't do their research before posting. SFOG never heard of Mystery Mine or Sponge Bob I guess. LOL

 

Or Maverick, Fahrenheit and Steel Hog.

 

Right, Steel Hawg (not Hog) was the first thing that came to mind. It would be one thing if there was maybe one other, but five other ones! Not to mention, isn't Steel Hawg tied with its clone as being the steepest drop?
