Obviously, the first thing one must do is download the app and figure out where in the plethora of other apps you are going to put it. Luckily I have a folder dedicated to Theme Park apps. Yep, I'm a dork. =)

A new app has been released by Six Flags that has some pretty great capabilities so of course we took some time today to play around with it, gathered some screen shots and we'll review it for you below.
If you'd like to download it you can do so from the Android or Apple store.

Once you download the app you can either enter in your pass number or scan it. I had no problem scanning my pass and it came right up.
Perks and Conditions and where the pass is valid at. Your home park is also featured at the top by default.
You can also access your Rewards and Coupons to see what's already on your pass. Bonus!!!
If you are visiting another park you can click the "Park Selection" and see hours, events and rides at any of the Six Flags parks.
Parks are listed alphabetically (by state) and are easy to navigate through them. La Ronde and Six Flags Mexico are also included.
Once you've selected your park the hours will display as well as options for buying tickets and a list of rides in alphabetical order.
You can also filter the rides by Thrill Level and Height Requirement.
Any special events are listed such as Season Pass ERT events and other events like the Coaster Challenge at Six Flags Great America.
Most of the parks events looked like this, easy to see what they are, the dates and whether you want to take the chance of a park full of cheerleaders. =)
So that's about it for our review of the new app. Overall we think the App is a great improvement over any of the 3rd party apps out there. The ability to have your pass in your phone alleviates the need for an "oh crap" pass since most of us grab our phones before anything else prior to leaving the house.
Obviously the one thing missing from the app ... ride wait times. This is probably the #1 ask for all of these apps and probably the hardest thing for most parks to implement. Hopefully an easy solution will come one of these days. Maybe scanning your phone at the entrance and exit while using the app? Of course, most people won't remember to do the 2nd scan.
Have you downloaded the app yet? Let us know what you think. And Apple users, let us know if there are any differences on that app. We're interested to know.

Six Flags Over Georgia Debuts New Looping Coaster and Classic Family Ride
AUSTELL, Ga. — May 22, 2015 —Chaos, mischief and mayhem is underway, as Six Flags Over Georgia – The Thrill Capital of the South – debuts THE JOKER Chaos Coaster and Harley Quinn Spinsanity, Gotham City’s newest challenges.
“These two new devious rides in one of the most popular sections of the park continue our commitment to providing thrills for the entire family,” said Six Flags Atlanta Properties park president Dale Kaetzel. “This expansion to the Gotham City area, combined with the second season of our world class Hurricane Harbor water park, sets the stage for a summer filled with exciting memories for guests of all ages.”
THE JOKER Chaos Coaster joins BATMAN™: The Ride and Mind Bender roller coasters in Gotham City and features:
· A “face-off” unique seating pattern, as the train’s twenty-four riders begin their journey;
· The train rocketing up seven stories high;
· A glide, both forward and backward, through a bedlam of loops;
· A suspended upside down roll, 72 feet in the air, for a ravaging thrill.
Also debuting is Harley Quinn Spinsanity, which sends riders spinning, twisting and rolling through a cycle of classic family-fun. BATMANTM: The Ride, inspired by DC Comics’ iconic Super Hero, will continue sending its riders backward through 2,700 feet of track at speeds of 50 miles per hour until later this spring.
Six Flags Over Georgia is now open daily through August 9. The park’s largest Fright Fest® event in park history debuts in September and the expanded Holiday in the Park® wintertime celebration begins in November.

Dare Devil is now open at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom!!!
Below you will find all of the info for the new thrill ride including ride stats, video footage and lots of pictures.
Be sure to head out and check out this new attraction this summer!!
VALLEJO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The all-new Dare Devil Chaos Coaster at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom promises to be a smash hit for daredevils everywhere. The new attraction opens to the public on May 23, and is being described as “hair-raising,” “invigorating” and “thrilling” by riders who were treated to a sneak preview at Northern California’s most thrilling theme park.
As the park’s 9th thrill attraction, Dare Devil Chaos Coaster features a 70-foot tall looped track that takes 24 riders ‒ most sitting face-to-face ‒ propelling pendulum-style backwards and forwards until momentum takes them into one of the longest suspended hang-times around, as they then rocket through six to seven cycles of full inversions.
“The suspense of anticipating the upside down hang time takes the thrill factor up several notches,” said Don McCoy, park president. “The single loop is very deceptive; this is probably the most intense ride we’ve built and we’re excited to introduce this new coaster to all of our daredevil guests.”
To launch the new ride, the park has partnered with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a leading funder of children’s cancer research grants, known for their head-shaving fundraising events. The first riders are comprised of real-life daredevils — young cancer patients and their families. In conjunction with the ride launch event, the park is announcing a Six Flags Discovery Kingdom head-shaving fundraiser to take place on June 27.
“We encourage the public to show their daredevil spirit and raise important funds by having their heads shaved to benefit St. Baldrick’s, one of the country’s leading funders of cancer research for kids,” said McCoy. “By taking on this challenge, they can truly show solidarity for kids with cancer.”
Dare Devil Chaos Coaster is located in the park’s Oasis Plaza featuring a fiery red and orange track with bright yellow cars. Towering flames highlight the top. The newly named Dare Devil Grill, located adjacent to the new ride, will open soon featuring burgers and snacks.
