SIX FLAGS OVER GEORGIA
& White Water Atlanta
Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (3/7/2023) While Six Flags over Georgia just opened for the 2023 season last weekend, would you believe trouble broke out in the park already? Strangely enough over the weekend, I had read reports about how the park seemed to have an increased security presence, where all of the uniformed security members, and not just off-duty police, were spotted wearing armored tactical vests throughout the park.
Well, according to the local news, several fights apparently broke out in the park involving teens on Saturday night. The reports claimed that security calmed things down, and when fights broke out a bit later, security began to remove the troublemakers from the park.
According to the statement from Six Flags, “Their actions disrupted the park experience for our guests and violated our park policies. ... We have absolutely no tolerance for inappropriate behavior. Safety for our guests, and our team members, is our foremost priority. Unruly behavior will not be tolerated.”
(3/5/2023) While Six Flags Fiesta Texas has been very vocal about how they were adding a third train to their RMC coaster, Iron Rattler, to ensure that they always had two trains available at any given time for operations, it seems Six Flags over Georgia was also fortunate enough to add a third train to their own RMC coaster. You can see in the pictures below that tagged Screamscape this weekend that a new Blue train has been added to Twisted Cyclone this weekend, as previously it only had Red and Black trains.
Also during the park’s season opener weekend pictures were posted of Acrophobia being closed, but with a sign promising it will open later this Spring, the park’s Go-Karts are back (despite being removed from the website), and a new tribute sign to former Park President Dale Kaetzel has been put up in the park. The log flume has also been painted and there are some anniversary banners up for Great American Scream Machine (50) and Riddler Mindbender (45).
(10/8/22) A quick note, now that the new 2023 Season Pass offerings are live on the Six Flags over Georgia website there has been a benefit change where access to Six Flags White Water is concerned. If you look at the benefits for the different tiered 2023 Season Passes, the lower tier (Gold) no longer includes access to Six Flags White Water. You will have to pay more to purchase the Platinum tier pass to regain access to Six Flags White Water for the 2023 season.
2023 - Kid-Flash Cosmic Coaster - (3/5/2023) As discussed earlier this week, a new dual track single-rail coaster was confirmed for the Gotham City section of Six Flags over Georgia, replacing the Joker Chaos Coaster ride. They are calling it the Kid Flash Cosmic Coaster and you can check out the animation of it in the post below which includes a look at what some of the animated graphics on all those LED panels might look like in the day and night.
A reader also posted a look at the construction site taken this weekend.
(3/1/2023) While there was speculation that the new dueling family coasters coming to Six Flags over Georgia might be set up on the former Splashwater Falls site, this does not seem to be the case. According to an article at Amusement Today the new pair of Skyline Attractions coasters “will be adding the coaster additions on the site formerly occupied by a Larson International Fireball sporting a Joker theme.”
So in other words, it definitely sounds like The Joker Chaos Coaster is being removed. While the ride is still currently listed on the Six Flags website, the article confirms the location by saying that the addition of the “P’Sghetti Bowl roller coaster continues the development of the multi-year reimagining of the Gotham City park section.” “The removal of [the former ride] will provide the ideal location for this new attraction.”
So with that in mind, any guesses as to what the theme of this ride may be? Obviously “Two-Face” would be a good one for a ride with two-tracks, though something more family friendly like Batman & Robin or Teen Titans may be more likely given the intended ridership.
If you never got a chance to ride the Joker’s Chaos Coaster (note: it’s not a coaster) you can check it out below.
(1/22/2023) The early word is that the new pair of single-rail roller coasters is expected to be installed on the site of the former Splashwater Falls ride site at Six Flags over Georgia. This will not only put it near the park’s Joker Funhouse Coaster, but will hopefully also result in the removal of the eyesore that is the former concrete pool leftover from the removal of Splashwater Falls.
(1/15/2023) Six Flags over Georgia is adding a new racing coaster in 2023 after all! In a surprise announcement at the “ACE No Coaster Con” event it was confirmed that a pair of P’Sghetti Bowl racing/dueling single-rail coasters from Skyline Attractions will be coming to the park in Summer 2023. From the look of it, this will be the same design and layout that was previously announced to be coming to the Six Flags Fiesta Texas park late last year, and just like the Texas version, the Georgia version will include the full Aurora LED lighting package on the track that should be spectacular looking.
2023 - Caribbean Cove @ Six Flags WhiteWater - (3/5/2023) Six Flags WhiteWater will be adding a new family friendly play area for the kiddies called Caribbean Cove. They expect it will be ready to open in May.
