Six Flags Over Georgia
Six Flags Over Georgia is a thrilling attraction located about 20 minutes to the west of the Atlanta city. In addition to an impressive roster of roller coasters, thrill rides and interactive games, the park features parades, special events, and Broadway-style musicals starring Bugs Bunny and other Loony Tunes characters. Dozens of snack shops and restaurants are strategically placed throughout the park, and strollers and wheelchairs are available for rent. See website for online specials, operating hours, and calendar of events.
I've been to a lot of theme parks on the east coast, and SFOG is the absolute worst. The park is dirty, the employees are lazy, and the overall atmosphere is unappealing. Long lines for rides (90-120 minutes for most because the "workers" like to take their time checking the seats on the rides), overpriced food, and poor customer service are just a few of the reasons I'll never take my family again. For example, I took my daughters to ride the new Batman ride, there weren't any signs saying how long the wait was (over 2 hours), to top that, they funnel the lines through metal tunnels with poor ventilation with 96 degree temperatures and no cooling fans. Once we reached the final staging area I understood why the lines were so long. They were not filling every seat, the employees were taking their time chatting with the operator, walking around goofing off... I was infuriated. I wouldn't take my dog to SFOG. If you're gonna spend the money, go to Carowinds in Charlotte, Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, or Disney in Orlando. I will be contacting the GA Health Dept. regarding one of the employee's unsanitary work habits. I ordered a $5 frozen lemonade, yep $5, and the woman was putting the scoop handle back in with the frozen lemonade after handling money and wiping her sweaty face. When confronted she just looked at me with a "I don't care" attitude. Don't take your family here! It's the worst theme park on the east coast. I wouldn't send my worst enemies to this dump!
I should have guessed this Warner Bros. park was going to end up a total cash-in.
40.00$ for a fast food meal.
I have esteemed acrophobia, so I ended up not riding any of the coasters or thrill rides. None of my friends said they were all that anyhow.
DO NOT GO HERE. Frankly I'd rather pay the prices for Disney World than see this crowded lancelot any day.
Staff was not friendly, park was run down and dirty, food was over priced and disgusting. I paid $42.00 for frozen burger patties that were worse than school lunch burgers! My advice is drive 6 hours south to Universal studios or Busch Gardens. The only upside is that the tickets only cost us $35.00 a piece.
Complaint #1: Georgia Cyclone needs repairs and will rattle your spine in the most unhealthy, painful ways you can imagine -sideways and up; once I felt the painful vibration in my spine I really started panicking realizing that the uncomfortable seats provide absolutely no back support; I also bruised my arm on this ride pretty badly; since riding that ride my lower back and neck has been hurting; I called Six Flags but can't get a hold of anyone and was forced to leave a message on someone's voice mail; I doubt I will get a call back. Please, avoid this ride! I am a healthy person who has never sustained a back injury and today my back is hurting so bad I can only imagine how bad it would be for other people whose back may not be perfect condition;
If you visit Skull Island in the afternoon make sure before you purchase the locker that you have ample time to play before you pay the $6.00 locker fee. The staff will gladly help you to put the charges on your credit card 5 minutes before closing and not even mention it. Also, be forewarned that you will not be allowed to change clothes in the changing room once the staff starts closing Skull Island. You will be forced to change in one of the park's bathroom.
This park is very run down with sketchy people everywhere. It seems to be built in a very bad part of town, and the park has seen better days. The food is very expensive, park spread out, and it was very crowded with very long lines. Do not go here.
growing up in GA I've been to six flags & had good times. This weekend my husband and I went and it was horrible. The lines weren't that long since we went on a Monday, but six flags now has a rule where you can't take your bag up to the rides so you HAVE to spend money to rent a locker so my husband put his phone in his pocket so we would know when the time was up to get out stuff & he lost his phone on the ride! This rule is absolutely stupid. Also, all of the rides were way to rough & that had never been a problem before for the newer rides like Goliath or Batman. It was OK probably won't be going back anytime soon.
I loved it all!! ITS AN AMUSEMENT PARK. SO YES YOU WILL HAVE LONG LINES AND HIGH PRICES. If you don't like long lines and high-prices then amusement parks are not for you!! EXPECT LONG LINES AND HIGH PRICES! ITS AN AMUSEMENT PARK! Parking is $15. My recommendation is to hit all the popular rides first in the morning or at the end of the day! Those lines will NOT die down ALL DAY!! They are the rides that everyone wants to ride so just grin and bare it!. The flash pass...well we thought about getting one. It wasn't really worth the extra money. Yes you can skip to the front but they only allow so many seats. I recommend ALL the rides EXCEPT the wooden roller coasters!! BEWARE!!! If you have ANY form of trouble with your neck, back or hips DO NOT RIDE THEM!!! There is nothing to stableize your neck, and they are very jerky and unstable. The Ninja is kinda jerky too...so keep that in mind as well. The Super Man, Mind Bender, Goliath,Batman, Scorcher...are AWESOME...for that matter we even enjoy the water rides! I felt very safe at ALL TIMES!!! This year they have these cups that you can purchace for $13.99 GET IT! FREE REFILLS ALL DAY! There is a handle on them that you can use to hook to a belt loop, bag, or just to carry easily. Dont be fooled by the price its worth it! Prices for drinks bottled or not bottled range from 2.50-4.40. On a hot day you will need to stay hydrated. My husband and I purchased just one and shared it.. You get a wrist band to were and you go to any of the restaurants or booths and they will refill it for you. We switched between water and Poweraid. FYI! Almost all the rides now do not allow you to carry a bag on with you, some wont even let you get into the line. Lockers are cheep but if you arnt into that I had a small purse thing that I could easily put around my waist since they will let you ride with a fanny pack. So either rent a locker, wear shorts with pockets, or go 80s and rock a fanny pack, or fake it with a small wallet purse and put it around your waist just to get in the line and on the ride. There are hills so wear COMFORTABLE SHOES! We wore our Keens sandles so that we could be comfortable and if we got wet it wouldn't matter. This time we had the pizza and I have to say for an amusement park...it was really good! As for areas for little ones...there arnt many. But there are some. I actually felt sorry for the parents with little ones. Push a stroller around those hills all day must have been a total work out. In my opinion children that are tall enough to ride the roller coasters are going to enjoy it more. Beware...there are tons of games that will catch your little one's eyes and they may beg you to play for a stuffed toy. The bathrooms were amazingly very CLEAN! The staff was very nice. Over all its a fun amusement park! There are Dippin Dots stands too it was $5.50 for the one size they had. Ehhh...could have gone without it but it was a nice cool treat. We both had one huge piece of pizza and an order of cheese sticks each and its was $25.00. You will spend money, you will have lines...but you will HAVE FUN if you expect that before going! After all you are there to have fun! GO THERE!
When me and my party arrived on March 19th, 2011, we had to wait two hours in line to buy tickets. Understandable, we should have purchased online. But once in the park, we went straight to the Batman ride and waited in line for 6 hours. 6 hours people!!! 1 hour of that 6 was spent in the loading area before you get on the ride. We think it took so long because people with flash passes had first priority on the rides, and if you had a platinum band, you could ride twice in a row. Instead of leaving 2 rows for the flash pass people, every other rotation, they would let the flash pass people occupy the entire cart, always leaving empty seats when there wasn't enough riders. When we went to complain, we had to wait an ADDITIONAL hour in the guest services line. When we told them of our trouble, they were rude, and they did not seem to understand. There were a lot of unhappy people there. I heard a little boy say while standing in the 6 hours long ride, "I hate 6 flags. This is the worst time ever." When a little kid says that, you know something is wrong. :(
It was not worth the time spent, price of tickets and price of gas to get there. I would definitely not recommend to others.
We took our kids, 9 and 11, and they had a great time, although the rides are geared for either small kids or teenagers+. Great rollercoasters, but a bit too big for smaller kids. I’d heard in the past that the Fright Fest stuff was a little too over the top for kids, but they must have toned it down. I will say that the park personnel were much more helpful and friendly than the last time I was there five years ago, so to the management, good job! We were comfortable letting our kids roam around while Mom and I went on the big coasters.
To those that say it’s expensive, it is. Name me one park that’s not. Go ahead and spring for the flash pass/queue bot thing, or you’ll spend many a miserable hour in line for the good rides. It doubles your ticket price, but we definitely found it worth it.
Only downside is that the food is mediocre at best, don’t plan on a lot of variety.
Also, the best place to stay is right up the road at the Wingate by Wyndam. Great people, they really did backflips to help us. They’ve got discounts on park tickets, and if your polite, they’ll let you check in early, or hold your bags at the counter. Big plus is that it’s a short walk to the park, so you can come and go as you please.
