Innovative New Thrills to Debut at Six Flags Over Georgia
Iconic Coaster Running Backward Starting Opening Day March 10
AUSTELL, Ga. — March 9, 2018 — Six Flags Over Georgia—the Thrill Capital of the South— kicks off its 51st season on March 10 with heart-pounding, innovative roller coaster experiences and a special name change for a fan favorite ride.
“Six Flags Over Georgia has a long-standing reputation in the Southeast as the premier theme park for the most innovative rides and attractions,” said Park President Dale Kaetzel. “We take great pride in offering our guests something new and unique every season. We are ready to welcome thrill-seekers of all ages for another incredible season, filled with the kind of memories only Six Flags can create.”
Beginning opening day, guests can experience the massive drops, twists and unsuspecting turns of The Great American Scream Machine — Backward. When the historic wooden roller coaster debuted in 1973, it was the longest, fastest and tallest wooden roller coaster in the world. This season, the coaster celebrates its 45th anniversary and will feature:
A suspenseful 105-foot climb while staring straight down at the ground—backward;
The exhilarating drop down nearly 10 stories—backward;
Speeds of 57 miles per hour around tight curves—backward; and
More than 3,800 feet of track racing along the banks of the Chattahoochee River—all while facing backward.
In honor of the park’s friendly wager with Alabama Splash Adventure, the steel stand up roller coaster—Georgia Scorcher—will temporarily become the Alabama Scorcher for the weekend, to celebrate the University of Alabama’s national championship win over the University of Georgia Bulldogs.
Then, later this spring, one of the country’s most anticipated new rides of 2018—Twisted Cyclone, makes its debut as the region’s first hybrid coaster, combining steel and wood for a smoother and more exciting ride than ever before. Park guests will get an up-close view of the construction progress and amazing transformation of this thrilling roller coaster set to open Memorial Day weekend.
Six Flags Over Georgia opens for the 2018 season on March 10 and operates on weekends through mid-May and daily March 31 through April 8 for Spring Break. For information on Season Passes, Memberships, daily tickets and the All Season Dining Pass, visit www.sixflags.com/overgeorgia.
