Six Flags Over Georgia Theme Park

June 16, 2017

Six Flags Over Georgia is located near Austell to the west of Atlanta and covers a 233-acre or 1.15 km2 area. Opening on 16 June 1967 it was the second theme park in the chain to open after Six Flags Over Texas.

Six Flags Over Georgia, Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St. Louis are the only three parks in the chain to have used the "Six Flags" name since their original openings. The reason for this is that they were all founded under the leadership of Angus G. Wynne. Click this link: http://bestontracklesstrain.com/small-kids-electric-trains-for-sale/ to know more.

In common with the Six Flags Over Texas, Georgia was inspired by six different flags that have flown over the state in which the park in built. The six flags in question are those of the UK, France, Spain, the Confederate States of America, the USA and the state of Georgia. Also in common with the original, the park was divided into themed areas, each one sharing props and decoration inspired by one of the six countries. Despite this, over the years much of the original theming has replaced by more popular cartoon and superhero themes. Click this site: www.bestontracklesstrain.com/.

Rides and attractions

The current park features over forty rides and attractions and as is common with many amusement parks, Six Flags Over Georgia places a lot of emphasis on its roller coasters. The park features an impressive ten roller coasters including the Dahlonega Mine Train, the Great American Scream Machine, Mine Bender, the Georgia Cyclone (based on the famous Coney Island Cyclone), Ninja, Batman: The Ride, Georgia Scorcher, Superman: Ultimate Flight, Wile E. Coyote Canyon Blaster and Goliath, one of the first hypercoasters in the US.

In addition to the impressive the roller coaster collection, other notable rides are Acrophobia (opened in 2001), which was the first floorless freefall tower ride in the world and the Riverview Carousel which is on the National Register of Historic Places as one of only three five-abreast carousels known to exist.

The parks strikes a good balance between historical ride content and new thrill rides which are required to draw new visitors into the attraction.

Six Flags Over Georgia tickets

Six Flags tickets (including season tickets) are available at the gate or online in advance of your visit. Free Six Flags tickets are made available for children under two, with adult one-day tickets costing around $50. Season passes are also available, many of which can get you access to other Six Flags parks, with some even allowing your friends free tickets on certain off-season days.
