Photo TR: Six Flags Over Georgia


Recommended Posts

Just got back from spending 2 days at Six Flags Over Georgia! Attempting to visit all of the Six Flags Parks in the next 2-3 years. My home park is SFSTL.

 

I'll start with our hotel that we stayed at. Sometimes it's hard to find good reviews of hotels from people that you can trust! Anyways we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Fairburn, Ga. It's only about 20-25 minutes from the park. We didn't have any traffic issues at all. The hotel is fairly new, only a few years old. The location is great and lots of restaurants in the area. Breakfast was included with our stay,so that's a bonus! Pretty good food selection and food quality is better than McDonald's! Our average nightly rate was about $115, not including taxes. Very clean ( I'm picky about my hotels) and their hospitality was top notch! I highly recommend them if you need a hotel in this area!

 

I really loved this park! It is very clean! I was very impressed with how clean it was and how fresh everything felt in the park! This park seems to have a bigger layout than my home park SFSTL. Lots of places to sit indoors and have lunch or a snack while cooling off in the Georgia Heat! It was nearly 100 degrees with heat index reaching 107!

 

The steel roller coaster lineup is very good from Batman, Superman, Dare Devil Dive, Goliath, Blue Hawk, Georgia Scorcher, Dahlonega Mine Train

and the legendary Mind Bender!

 

Now, the park really needs a new wooden roller coaster in my opinion. Something that is tall and fast! The Georgia Cyclone and Great American Scream Machine are OK, but aren't very fast nor are they tall.

 

Six Flags Over Georgia has 2 awesome kiddie areas! DC Super Friends and Bugs Bunny Boomtown. Excellent selection of rides along with great theming! Our kids enjoyed them!

 

The Hurricane Harbor water park is not the biggest water park, but it's still new and very clean. They don't have a lot of things to do in the water park unlike other Hurricane Harbor Water parks. They have one big 4 person raft slide called Tsunami Surge. This slide was awesome. Since it's the only big slide in the water park, the line does get long very quickly, so be sure to ride this slide first thing. The Bonzai Pipeline slides are your average single or double rider tube slides. The main family area is called Paradise Island. Our kids loved this, lots of things to climb and water slides to go down!

 

 

Overall we had a great experience and would recommend visiting the park! I really didn't have any complaints about the park. Just needs a bigger woodie!

Great TR! I too love seeing reports from my home park. In response to your comments about a larger wooden coaster, I am a big fan of both woodies in the park, but I do think a GCI (although that isn't bigger) would fit in the park nicely. Great American Scream Machine opened as the tallest coaster in the world and I would still call that a large wooden coaster even by today's standards.

 

Glad y'all had a great time and no complaints! SFOG definitely is one of the nicest parks in the chain and has a solid line up (no bad coasters really) but the operations leave so much to be desired from my experience.

the park is really beautiful.

 

hoping I get a chance to check it out Labor Day weekend (will be in Atlanta for Dragon*con.. . too bad it's weekends only in a 4 weeks, as I'm there the whole week and would have loved to go on a Wednesday).

 

but hoping THIS year, we finally get off our butts and go!

Agreed with everything you've said! SFOG is definitely my favorite out of the SF's I've been to so far (SFGAdv, SFNE, SFA, SFGAm). The scenary, the coaster collection, all top notch. Love seeing TR's of it, makes me want to get right back down there, thanks for sharing!
