Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Here are all the smileys that sum up my emotions after looking at that car:

 

 

I think I just did a doo daa in my pants...

Just imagine Anubis with those... OOPS I JUST DOO DAA'D MY PANTS AGAIN...

 

 

Okay... out of curiosity, did you make a double-post here on purpose to express your feelings? It would be a lot better to just edit your first post.

 

Anyway, here's what I think of these brand-new trains:

 

 

It should look even better when all the theming is put on the train, and hopefully, it will produce some excellent airtime along with the inversions.

 

Hopefully the ride runs well. Along with Untamed, america should have 2 excellent Eurofights for guests to coo and go crazy over!

I kinda surprised that nobody has yet to go out to the park to videotape it testing and then post it to YouTube or CoasterTube. It is currently testing like mad right now from the looks of the live cam on Six Flags' website.

Thanks to an "Andrew Roberts", someone DID post it to Facebook and to Youtube today.

 

It's very interesting that it doesn't "pause" over the crest. Perhaps they are still working on that feature during testing. It's very quiet too. Thanks Andrew if you're on TPR too!

Was at the park yesterday and got some pics of it testing. They were running the white train empty and it was crawling through the course. They were running the black train full of water dummies and it was going much faster. No, it wasn't flying through the course but I think once the trains get worn in and heat up and the train is full of people then I am sure they will haul. It was really cool to watch it test. They just kept running them over and over the whole day. As Scott said before me, there is not much of a pause at the top, it just crawls over and then is released pretty quickly. Can't wait for media day!

Seems a lot slower than Anubis The Ride in Plopsaland Belgium (same layout, but launched!)

I'ts a great Layout, but it needs the speed...

 

Perhaps you should check out RCDB.com for a speed comparison here. Per RCDB, Dare Devil Dive's drop is at 52 mph whereas Anubis' launch is 55.9 mph. That's not much of a difference; clearly it has the "speed" aspect covered. We are just thankful that our park is getting something new this year; we have no concern that it's 3 mph slower than Anubis.

I don't say it will not be a good ride! And if the speed aspect is covered, the ride will be amazing So you may be verry thankful indeed! Gerstlauer is a great coasterbuilder!

never judge a ride based on testing videos. Sure, it looks slow, but I would bet that they are still tweaking a lot of things (lift speed, brakes, wheels, etc).

 

Besides, I'd rather it be too slow, than to be fast and beat you to death like Huracan
