    (11/4/20) If you are in the Georgia area, the world’s largest drive-through animated light show experience may be just the thing you are looking for. The drive-though experience is called “World of Illumination” and is just one part of Candy Rush, a new Christmas candy themed attraction that will open on the site of the Six Flags White Water waterpark in Marietta, GA.
    Candy Rush will open on Nov. 13, 2020 and run through Jan. 3, 2021 with tickets starting at $35 per vehicle on weeknights, $45 on weekends and holidays.
    (9/12/20) Six Flags over Georgia says they will now kick off HALLOWFEST on Sept. 18, adding seven more nights to the schedule, with HALLOWFEST fun taking place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through to Nov. 1st, 2020. During the daylight hours the park will offer family friendly fun in five “Fair Zones” (Scarecrow Square, Pirate Point, Witch Way, Pumpkin Patch and Clown Town) and after dark the creatures are let loose into the midways: Zombie Zoo, Seeds of Samhain, Cursed Cove, Big Top Terror and Cannibal Cookout.
    For details visit the official HALLOWFEST website for Six Flags over Georgia.
    (8/19/20) It appears that most of the Six Flags parks who opened for the 2020 season will be having a HALLOWFEST event this October. The list of park’s confirmed so far to have it include Six Flags Great Adventure who announced it on Monday, along with Six Flags over Texas, SF over Georgia, SF St. Louis, SF Fiesta Texas, SF America, and Frontier City.
    In short this will be a social-distancing friendly Halloween event with no indoor haunts or shows, with a focus on outdoor scares, entertainment and atmosphere, but with strict social distancing rules. Face masks will be required for everyone, staff and guests. You can visit the official site for more details about what will be involved at each location and the dates at .

    (7/23/20) A reader sent in some new pictures from Six Flags over Georgia taken this week showing off some of the extensive track work taking place on the Mindbender, which will return in 2021 as The Riddler Mindbender. They also included quick pics of this year’s two new rides in the Gotham City area which are now open.






    (6/21/20) A reader sent in a few pictures from the Gotham City area at Six Flags over Georgia this week, where it looks like they are getting ready to open up soon. I’m told that Gotham City will be ready for guests on June 29, with the exception of Mindbender which wont open again until 2021.


    (6/16/20) Screamscape heard some good news about the opening of Six Flags over Georgia earlier. According to a reader who sent in some reports, they seemed to have their entry procedures down with thermal camera, making everything smooth and easy to get in. Managers and security were staffed just inside making sure to tell everyone to put their masks on and leave them on throughout the day, along with some other reports confirming that the mask policy was being enforced in the park.
    As reported earlier, Gotham City is not ready to open just yet, and Mindbender will be closed until 2021. Beyond that the only major ride we heard was closed was Justice League for some reason.
    (6/10/20) Six Flags over Georgia has announced that they will reopen the park on June 15th, and the White Water waterpark will reopen on June 29 for passholders and July 3rd to the public. SFOG will only be open to members and passholders from June 15-21 before opening to the public on June 22, but reservations are required for all visits. Note that the Hurricane Harbor waterpark area inside the park will not open until June 22 and the refreshed Gotham City area will not open until June 29th.
    That said… there is an interesting note that “Mindbender will debut in 2021”. Click here for details

   (3/7/20) A banner up at Six Flags over Georgia seems to be promoting the addition of the two new flat rides coming to Gotham City as part of an “All New Gotham City Coming Soon” to the park. Some of this may also have to do with a change noticed on the park’s website where the name of the “Mind Bender” coaster has now officially been changed to “
“THE RIDDLER Mindbender”. While The Riddler association with the coaster is nothing new, as some light Riddler themeing on the trains (black and covered with tiny green question marks) and the ride’s sign have been in place for the past couple of decades, this is the first time the coaster’s name has been changed and is likely another aspect of this “All New Gotham City” promotion.
    Another interesting addition was also spotted on a list of the park’s show schedule with a new ‘High-Dive Show” coming to the Axis Arena in Gotham City as well. Unfortunately all of Gotham City is apparently closed (so no Mindbender, no Batman, Joker, etc.) due to construction which just stinks. If it wasn’t bad enough that all of the Gotham City attractions were closed, I’m told that Great American Scream Machine was also closed as well. The good news is that it looked like they have been replacing some of the wood on the lift hill, especially all around the base of it.


2020 - Catwoman Whip and Poison Ivy: Toxic Twister - (8/29/19) Six Flags over Georgia will add two new villains to the park for 2020 with the addition of two new wild rides. Catwoman Whip will bring a new Zamperla Endeavor ride that will flip riders upside down over and over nearly 7-stories in the air. Poison Ivy Toxic Twister will actually be a classic Scrambler style flat ride, adding more rider capacity to the park.


2020 - Python Plunge @ Six Flags Whitewater - (8/29/19) The Six Flags White Water waterpark will open Python Plunge in 2020, a new five-story adventure speed slide that will feature drops and high-speed saucer-turns.


icon_STOP2021 - Mindbender or THE RIDDLER Mindbender - Restoration - (8/15/20) Is Premier Rides making all new coaster trains for The Riddler Mindbender for 2021? I think they could be, according to a new press release from the company.
    (6/10/20) There is an interesting note that “Mindbender will debut in 2021”, which seems to indicate that they never finished the extensive rehab that was started over the winter on the old Mindbender coaster. “Debut” is kind of a strong word for a coaster that has been around since 1978 as “Mind Bender”, but the long standing rumor was that the rehab would also involve a small identify change to include a clear tie to the Riddler villain character, which has been silently done to the queue and added question-mark theming to the trains for years anyway. An earlier version of the park’s website also briefly changed the name of the coaster to ‘THE RIDDLER Mindbender”, so this may still be in the works anyway.
    All new trains could also be added to the ride, as Six Flags Magic Mountain sent one of their new trains from their New Revolution to the Georgia park, which was spotted on site in photos posted back in December. Either way, it looks like we now know what the park is planning for next year already.
    (2/25/20) A reader passed by Six Flags over Georgia earlier today and managed to grab a photo of some track work being done to the Mindbender.

    (2/7/20) Screamscape sources tell us that some kind of rehab or repair is being done to the Mindbender at Six Flags over Georgia. Portions of the coaster’s track have been removed by cranes and placed in the parking lot and a collection of large brown boxes have arrived on site as well.
    I’m not sure which sections of track have been removed, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they pulled out some of the track sections that have gone underwater when the area floods around the second loop.
    (12/3/19) Special thanks to a reader for sending in a very interesting photo they took at Six Flags over Georgia this week. Pieces of a new coaster train were spotted on site near the lift hill and first drop of Mindbender that looked a little familiar. It seems Six Flags Magic Mountain sent one of their New Revolution trains to Georgia, which we can only assume will be used for testing purposes on Mindbender.
    This likely means that the current crop of trains may be in need of replacement, sooner than later. This makes me wonder about the status of the trains on Shockwave at Six Flags over Texas, as both coasters opened in 1978.
