SIX FLAGS OVER GEORGIA
& White Water Atlanta
Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (4/4/22) According to information sent in from Six Flags over Georgia the park will be offering extended hours for Spring Break (now through April 10th). They also mention a number of improvements made to the park for the season including a Ride Information Center added near Twisted Cyclone which can perform height checks, obtain special attractions accessibility passes and more. Also added this year are new single riders lines to five attractions: Superman: Ultimate Flight, Twisted Cyclone, The Riddler Mindbender, Goliath and Georgia Scorcher. The park has also added the ability to skip the line on various attractions through your smartphone by scanning QR codes for the The Flash Pass mobile site.
The park is also preparing for a brand new food festival event called Tapas & Tequila which will take place on weekends between May 14 and May 29, 2022. Guests can partake in a variety of different tequila and tapas pairings, try special handcrafted Six Flags over Georgia themed cocktails and enjoy the festival atmosphere with live music.
2022 - 55th Anniversary Celebration - (2/12/22) Six Flags over Georgia has confirmed that in 2021 the park resumed their multi-year refurbishment plan for The Great American Scream Machine wooden coaster. According to Six Flags, “Just in time for the park’s 55th anniversary, this restorative project includes a complete re-tracking and the replacement of much of the wooden ride structure. The park plans to unveil the updated classic rollercoaster this spring.” (In other words, GASM will be closed for the first part of 2022 while they finish.)
On the corporate end of things, we’ve been hearing a lot of buzz that select Six Flags theme parks may be in jeopardy of losing not only their Holiday in the Park winter festivals, but some may even lose Fright Fest if they’ve been suffering from major security or performance issues. In the letter from Six Flags over Georgia they are quick to confirm that the park is moving ahead with a slate of planned festivals and events for the 2022 season to include: Spring BreakOUT, the 55th Anniversary celebration on June 14th, July 4th Fest, the Brews and Bites festival (Aug 13-Sept 4), Fright Fest (Sept. 17 through Oct 31) and lastly Holiday in The Park (Nov. 19 through Jan 1, 2023).
2022 - Python Plunge at Six Flags White Water - (5/6/22) Six Flags White Water has confirmed that the waterpark will open for the season this Saturday (May 7th) along with the opening of the brand new Python Plunge waterslide.
(5/31/21) I’m told that the new Python Plunge attraction for the Six Flags White Water park has now been pushed back to 2022. Apparently no real construction work was done on having this already delayed 2020 attraction ready for the 2021 season, so now we’re looking at 2022.
