And that's my fear...havingvto buy two passes at once. They won't let you modify your current membership to accommodate a cheaper price?

Nope not for the first 12 months.. It has to stay how it is..

Now with that being said, they might allow you to cancel if they see you purchased a season pass under the same name for the same user.. I'm sure cs might make an exception for that but really I don't know.. The FAQ says to call them if you want to change to a regular pass so I am not sure how they deal with that

The Joker Chaos Coaster Media Day and Photo TR

It’s epic. It’s chaotic. It’s devious. And, it’s waiting for you and 23 other riders! It’s the all-new THE JOKER Chaos Coaster. Experience the insanity of facing off against one another and rocking back and forth through seven stories of looping mayhem. It may seem like the madness is slowing down, but you are about to be thrown for a loop, upside down, 72 feet in the air. And, it’s not over yet. Get ready to be sent in the opposite direction for even more looping havoc.

If twists and turns are more to your liking, get ready for a thrill by spinning through an adventure bigger than ever before on the all-new Harley Quinn Spinsanity. Hop on this classic ride with your entire family with a new twist, as you challenge other riders to see who succeeds to spin around the most then stand up without feeling dizzy.

The new THE JOKER Chaos Coaster and Harley Quinn Spinsanity are located in the Gotham City area of the park along with the likes of BATMAN: The Ride, Mind Bender and more!

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Today I was invited to join the Media Day Events for the The Joker Chaos Coaster and Harley Quinn's Spinsanity. While these two rides were not the most anticipated additions to a theme park this year, I was impressed with just how special Six Flags Over Georgia made the event. From the friendly staff to the awesome Joker and Harley Quinn bobble-heads, you could tell SFOG was proud of their new additions. In all, the day was highly enjoyable, and memorable for all who attended.

First let me review The Joker Chaos Coaster. I'll start off by saying, "Wow!" I remember the announcement for this ride, and questioning the park's sanity on such an odd addition, but boy was I wrong. I was concerned that the ride would be very carnival-esque, with a lot of shaking and general safety concerns, but it definitely had that permanent feel. It also came with a sweet lighting package that is going to truly sparkle during the evening and night hours. The ride itself was very smooth, well-paced, and just plain fun. Its height added to the excitement, while also complimenting the Gotham City 'skyline.' The Joker logo placed in the middle of the loop made for some great visuals too. This ride, along with Harley Quinn's Spinsanity, really fills out this part of the park, and I feel they are welcome additions to line-up at Six Flags Over Georgia.

I will be at SFOG tomorrow. I'll be the 16 year old wearing a Fury 325 that is black. If you see me say hi Mark! :)

(Also, someone please re-explain to me SFOG's ceiling issues, seeing as this is marketed as being 240 feet tall. I was under the assumption the limit was 200 feet.)


The ride was originally announced as being 240, but I believe they only could get permission from the FAA for 220-230. As I understand it the limit is 200 feet from the tallest point (Where Goliath, at exactly 200 feet tall, is located), but they were able to go a little taller by placing the ride in Lickskillet.

That makes much more sense. The ride-op was still saying the ride was 240, but I was under the impression, like you said, that it wasn't quite that tall. Thank you!

From what I am seeing, Harley Quinn replaced the remote controlled monster trucks and is located in Mindbender's turn into the brakes while Joker is located at the top of the hill across from Crime Wave, correct?

Also, please let RMC Cyclone be the 2017 50th Anniversary project. I've heard rumors of Hurricane Harbor getting a massive expansion for 2016, so we may not get much if anything next year on the dry side.

White Water?

Has anyone been to White Water lately? I am wondering if Dive Bomber replaced Cliffhanger. Also, I saw that Dragon's Tail was not listed on their website.

Harley Quinn did not replace the remote controlled monster trucks, but it is located in Mindbender's turn into the brake run. It fits snuggly between the turn, Batman's merch store, and Batman's existing exit. The monster trucks are still there, and SFOG had the working too.

You are correct about the Joker - once you come in to Gotham, you'll see it on your right directly across from Crime Wave.

The Mine Train became a water ride thanks to a Splashwater Falls boat cycling at the right time
GASM was running very smooth :airtime:
namtaB isn't something you ride with your mind, it's something you ride with your balls
Goliath was rattling, but still very awesome.


As many time as I've ridden Mine Train I've never been lucky to have that happen, I've always wanted to be on it when a boat splashed down.
