another flash pass question (sorry!)

Is Flash pass worth it at six flags over Georgia on Sunday 9/2 (labor day weekend?) I would normally buy it no thought at all since I'm traveling from Cleveland (carowinds + SFoG trip), but there are several rides that say "one time only" on their site, even with the most expensive platinum option, is this true, or does that "one time" apply to the regular / gold options?

Batman, dare devil dive, and twisted cyclone one time only... at that point not sure if the pass is worth it. thoughts?

thanks

I can give you my thoughts. I've been a good amount this year. If you are at the front gates 30 minutes before they open, you'll be able to knock out all the credits by noon or 1:00pm. Twisted opens 30 min before listed opening most days. Ride it a few times before rope drop. Then just knock everything out one by one. At rope drop, Scorcher will be a walkon. Dare Devil Dive will be next and a near walk on. Then grab Mindbender and Batman. You wont have any lines. Head back to Superman next. You might have to wait a 20 minutes or so depending on when you get there. Then GASMachine, Blue Hawk, skybuckets over next to the mine train and grab it. Then, knock out Goliath. That's optimal but prob not even necessary.

If it's anything like Memorial day weekend, the park will be dead in the mornings. We were surprised how long it took people to show up that weekend.

Yesterday was free military day at SFOG. Active and up to 3 guests were free to get in. 45 minutes after the rope drop I was sitting on Goliath taking re-rides without leaving the station. It was dead until 1 or 2 pm.

Heavy church areas. Sundays are usually light for much of the day.

The bad news is food ops were terrible yesterday. Chicken wing place wasn't even open at noon. JB Sports Grill wasn't open at 12:30pm. Understaffed and not opening on time or very delayed.

Thanks for the advise but I do have a question. You’re saying they open the park / twisted cyclone 30 minutes early? Do you need a special membership or anything to get in early?? I have the basic gold season pass from six flags great America and I’m not sure if my friends will have a good pass or not.

No. Everyone can get in 30 min early. Everyone can ride TC if they have it running early (and they usually do).

He's just hit the 42" mark and I'm debating on taking him on Mindbender. Not because he would be scared (he is fearless,) but because of the super heavy g forces at the bottom of the "2nd loop - downward helix" and the last loop. Thoughts??

The kid is tall enough and wants to ride and you're worried about some measly g-forces? What the hell kind of coaster dad are you? :lol:


:lmao: You are right. He's already a little adrenaline junkie. Took him to White Water this weekend to switch things up a bit. He had a blast but damn was it exhausting.

So do you guys think a raptor or a free spin is coming?

I'm hoping for Maxx Force of the south!

But I feel like we're gonna end up with a 4D freespin

4D is my guess. Not excited about it.

I'll buy the season flash pass if they say Raptor. That ride would bring people to the park and make it a destination for a couple years.
