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
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.
Check-in was at the rear entrance of the park near the stadium in Gotham City.
On our walk up we were treated with a short glimpse of Dare Devil Dive.
The lunch/refreshments tent that would serve us goodies later in the day.
Once we reached Gotham we were told the ride was open for media. Naturally we hoped right on!
Due to the height of the ride, it offers a lot of opportunities to play with the sun in pictures.
Still has that new ride smell.
Personally, I'm a fan of the Joker logo in the middle. It makes for some cool visuals.
See what I mean?
After a few rides, Dan Kaetzel, president of SFOG, came to speak for the ribbon cutting.
The actual cutting of the ribbon.
And they're off! The first 'official' ride of The Joker Chaos Coaster.
Don't think I forgot about Harley Quinn's Spinsanity!
I love the detail on this ride. Where Six Flags could have dropped the ball, they seemed to really take some extra time on this ride.
So happy to see this classic flat ride at Six Flags Over Georgia!
After taking some photos of the new rides, we ventured back to the tent to partake in some great food provided by the park. I believe the DJ was leading the 'Wobble' in this particular picture.
Don't be fooled by the report - THIS was the real reason for the celebration. Oreo churros need to be more of a staple at Six Flags parks. They were neat!
After the celebration, we moved on to check out the rest of the park. Crime Wave was not impressed by the new additions.
As stated earlier in the forum, Batman Backwards was extended further in to the season per customers' requests.
It was a little disorienting coming in to the loading station and seeing the train face the other direction.
I honestly did not find Batman Backwards to be that enjoyable. My friend and I sat in the 'front' of the train, and the entire ride seemed too rough. My head hit the headrest almost as much as on a SLC. I'm not sure if other riders have had the same experience, but I think I'll wait until it faces forward to ride it again.
From Batman we moved on to Mindbender. I love how historic, and just plain fun this ride is!
With the addition of The Joker Chaos Coaster, there are finally three loops in Gotham.
Leaving this side of the park, we passed by The Joker again, and saw that it was a big hit with the public!
Dare Devil Dive was the only coaster to post significant wait times today - for that reason we decided to skip it since we both had the credit.
"Funny, I don't remember ever riding a ride that made me feel like a loaf." - Brianna
We moved on to the back of the park, and passed through what I believe should be the next focus area for the park. With the demise of Deja Vu and Thomas Town, this area really lacks a draw. I think an even better kiddy area (which, by the way, was closed) and a small coaster would really do wonders for this side of the park.
Like I said, this side of the park just seems sad.
Next up - Sky Screamer. It was both mine and Brianna's first time on one of these, and we really enjoyed it! Despite being so high in the air, it was relaxing! (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.)
Hurrican Harbor was open to the public today, and, like the rest of the park, did not seem crowded. Due to time, we decided not to look around.
I love GASM's station.
*Insert semi-artsy GASM photo here*
Superman was running great today! The line was long for the crowd, but not nearly as bad as Dare Devil Dive. The Pretzel Loop is still probably one of my favorite coaster elements.
By this time, we were both pretty tired, and decided to take the rest of the day kind of slow. Neither of us had ever taken the time to ride the carousel, and much to my surprise it was one of the most enjoyable moments of the day. If you're in the park, please take the time to slow down and enjoy this beautiful ride. You won't regret it.
And by take it slow, I mean ride the smaller rides. Somehow, and I'm really not sure how, I had missed getting the Wile E. Coyote Canyon Blaster credit over the past years. I was not about to let it slide this time.
Agoraphobia. Arachnophobia. Acrophobia.
Took the train for a spin, so we could continue to relax.
Passed our new friend, who was continuing to be a hit with the crowd.
I forget how wonderfully charming Six Flags Over Georgia can be. The park, to me, is operating at its best in years.
I nominate the Georgia Cyclone for the next RMC transformation.
While the park is operating at its best, this ride is unfortunately not. I know it was recently retracked in sections, but the ride seems almost too rough. I think this would be a great challenge for RMC, and a new lease on life for a ride that I wouldn't want to see go completely. The tight footprint lends itself to the strengths of RMC, and I'm sure they could include some incredible elements in its original structure.
As we made one final pass back to Gotham, I noticed this new addition to the arcade area by Goliath. I know these games are gaining in popularity in other parks, so I was happy to see this at SFOG!
One last look at Gotham City before we left. So very happy with the new additions.
Thank you to Six Flags Over Georgia for a great media day, and an awesome day at the park!

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.
Schwarzkopf was a genius; anything less makes you a moron.

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 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.
