Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

To make up for having to miss Deep South Bash, I'm going to the park either tomorrow or Friday. Should be fun, considering my mom is getting me a flash pass. I can't wait to get back on Dare Devil Dive and ride one of my top three favorite drop towers ever!

 

It's crazy how much love Mindbender doesn't get. As such an awesome coaster it is, I've never, ever waited longer than 30 minutes for it. Meanwhile Goliath is crawling forward with a two 1/2 hour line! Both are great coasters, and I've only experienced really bad rattling on one of my experiences. Other times it was either really small rattling or it was smooth as glass. It probably depends on where you sit.

 

I'm also hoping to give GASM another try. The last time I rode it, it was in the front car, second row. Jackhammered me the entire ride: slapped my back, the back of my head, and my butt. I hated it, which was sad because I was able to notice its potential in the amount of airtime it had.

Oh, Mindbender gets PLENTY of love when I'm around... I make sure Mindbender is loved repeatedly. I've loved Mindbender for 25 cycles in a row before. And I'll be loving Mindbender for four days in just two short weeks.

 

Mindbender is better when the love comes from the truly devout...

Praise be to Anton, Amen.

^^^I'm sure I was just in a bad seat.

^^Never been on Rebel Yell, but I'll have the chance when I go to Kings Dominion in a few weeks. (East Coast Bash )

^Amen

 

That said, my mother called me saying she was sick, so the trip for me is postponed.

I hope you bring a towel.

Six Flags over Georgia has announced that the final performances of the new iLluminate show will take place on Sunday, August 12th in the park’s Crystal Pistol Music Hall. You still have time to see it, as iLluminate will perform every day except on Tuesdays between now and Aug. 12th.

Looks like it will be over the day after DSB.

Ok so my trip to Six Flags got pushed up to this Wensday(August,1st), so does anyone know if the park will be crowded?

 

Get to the park when it first opens and head to the very back of the park. Ride the Scream Machine,Superman and Ninja. After that head on over to Gotham and ride Batman and Mindbender. Then use the rest of the day to ride all the other rides and attractions. DDD will have a 30-45 min wait all day. If you plan to see the Iluminate show get in line 45min before showtime.

Well I had an interesting experience at SFOG!!I went to the park two times and the first time was defiantly better than my second...

 

Well the first time was amazing!! The lines were short, almost everything was up to the station!!Scorcher was running really good!! Goliath was much better than my last visit. Batman was smooth, Mindbender reminded me how much I loved Schwarzkopf. GASM hurt like hell, Ninja tried to kill me...Superman was fun in the last row. And I finally got my Agoraphobia credit. DDD was....Mehh!! I mean it was smooth and all but nothing special to me!! At the end of the day the only ride I didn't ride was cyclone..

 

My second time was just awful!! At first it stared off amazing. I got my cyclone credit which it tricked me...The first drop was really smooth and I though the entire ride was gonna be smooth.... was I wrong or what!! And After that I got like 7 rides on Goliath. After that it was about 2 And I headed for Batman then it started to rain...very lightly for about 10 minutes and while I was walking I herd thunder. And as soon as I get in line I here people saying they closed it...Now the rain stopped and the sun came out ....but no rides were open and the didn't open for the rest of the day!!! Now me angry and frustrated I asked someone wouldn't they open any rides before they closed ( which was like in a hour ) and he said he didn't think so because they had to go through 30 mins of testing and no rides were testing... So we just left!! I gotta say I was very disappointed with SFOG at that point...

 

But overall it is a very good park!! The only thing I didn't like was those dreadful hills they really drain you!!!

I was at SFOG once when it was raining (on a Saturday) and GASM, mine train, and Ninja (I don't know if any others were running at the time)were running with people during the rain which was heavy for a few minutes and then drizzled for an hour. when I finally got on GASM it had stopped raining but I did get a ride on the mine train in the rain.

Bad enough that I did not reride.

I was in the first row of the 4th or 5th car.

That's unfortunate GASM was my 5th favorite coaster at SFOG last year.

GASM - in the front or on a non-wheel seat is still an amazing ride.

 

As far as the height of a new SkyScreamer - 200ft is about the max SFoG can do since it is in the flight path of a small regional airport.
