Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

In my opinion, the height restriction from the airport has not prevented them in the least from having awesome coasters. Goliath may not be the tallest hyper coaster there is but it is the best of any hyper coaster I have ever been on and a solid ride. I don't think the restrictions would ever pose a problem with them adding another great coaster whenever they decide to.

^^ This is also a small airport nearby. Charlie Brown is it's name, I think. It's on the north side of I-20 and SFOG is on the south side a little further west.

 

This has always been my understanding regarding the height restrictions. WOrked there a LONG time ago 1986 and 1987. I remember growing up and going to the park a lot. It seems like they used to get a "bigger" ride one year, then a more family style ride the next and they would kind of flip-flop ride types like that.

 

I have always loved that park and can't wait for my annual Easter Sunday visit this year!! One month from today!!!!!

^ Yes, Hartsfield Jackson International Airport is 30 minutes away by car.

 

The power grid might not be able to do a launch coaster due to high demand.

 

Also, 10 days till SFOG opens!

 

There is also the second busiest airport in the United States less than 2,000 ft. away... Fulton County Executive...

Six Flags could always add some power thing on their park. I'd say a Wind-fan/Solar Panel but people on other forums tell me that's stupid.

Are you talking about Fulton County Airport? It's not anywhere close to being the second busiest... not even in the top 50. It doesn't have passenger flights, just general aviation.

I haven't been to sfog in 10 years. Does anybody know how well Great American Scream Machine is running? It was running quite smooth when I went.

 

My last ride was during the TPR Deep South Bash, and "the water challenge." Not too bad, except for the final stop, but it's always been that way. It's probably rougher than you remember 10 years ago, but I like it. Smooth compared to the Cyclone.

We're looking forward to seeing everyone at the park tomorrow for Opening Day!

 

Remember, if you're one of the first 1,045 guests you'll receive a free ticket to join us on Saturday, June 16 for our 45th Anniversary Celebration.

 

As of today, all of the coasters should be 2-train operation with the exception of Ninja and the Great American Scream Machine. Unfortunately Cyclone will not be in operation as the Topper Track installation is still in progress.

 

Can't believe the 2012 season is here!

Why are Ninja and Great American Scream Machine only running one train?

compared to years in the past, that is quite an upgrade. Be happy! Ninja never really needs to run 2 trains anyways

 

I think people who's birthdays are the same as Six Flags should get free admission too

Is georgia cyclone slated to be open this weekend?

 

It will not be.

 

Does anyone know if georgia cyclone will be done by the second weekend of operation?

 

The latest date I've been told is March 31. Again, this isn't guaranteed by any means, just an update.

Just got back from a GREAT day at the park! The crews today were really pushing today. Goliath was often dispatching one train while the other would be going through the overbank over the road into the parking lot. Some observations I made today:

 

-Georgia Cyclone was still down. There were two guys working on the first turnaround when I walked by. I also noticed the blue train was in the station already loaded with test dummies.

-Ninja still only had the one train on the track, and had a short line in the afternoon. They even had a sign out front explaining they were only running one train. It was running an Arrow train, which has a shiny new black with red stripe paint job. I remember last year at DSB they said they were going to get a second Arrow train this year so still have to see if that happened.

-All other rides were running 2 trains today.

-Batman had three rows blocked off today, creating a 25-30 minute wait when I rode it. Rows 7-8 were reserved for Flash Pass (when did they start blocking off two rows for FP?), and IDK why row 2 was blocked off.

 

That's about all I guess. It seems the park is off to a great 45th year!

That's really weird they have rows blocked off for Flash Pass. It seems like a waste, two rows? I'm sure Flash Pass is more used than Quick Queue, but Quick Queue at BGW is a huge waste, so many 2nd rows of Apollo go out empty. And it's Spring so I'm sure people don't really need Flash Pass yet as the summer crowds aren't around.

Just my opinion, but if you're going to designate rows exclusively to Flash Pass, do it in the middle of the train, not the last row. If for some reason that can't be done, keep it to every other train dispatched.

A former Arrow train? Didn't they get a train from the GASM from SFGAdv last year?

 

Hopefully, the retracking will be worth it.

^Yes they did. It was the blue train from GASM...which looked odd on a ride themed to a Ninja. It looks VERY good now. Hopefully they did get that second Arrow train, because the Arrow was noticeably smoother than the Vekoma train last year.
