Six Flags Over Georgia has sent us a press release regarding the celebration of their 45th anniversary!
On June 16, 1967, Six Flags Over Georgia opened its gates for the first time as the Southeast’s first regional theme park. Since that day, the park has entertained millions of guests through its innovative rides, shows and attractions.
On Saturday, June 16, 2012, the park will celebrate its 45th anniversary with a day filled with live entertainment, a commemorative ceremony with celebrity guest Jeff Foxworthy, hundreds of cupcakes and a fireworks extravaganza to cap off the day.
“It’s hard to believe that Six Flags Over Georgia has been entertaining guests for 45 years,” said Melinda Ashcraft, park president. “Our youngest guests visit the park each day with their parents and grandparents, many of whom visited the park when they were children back in 1967”.
Live entertainment will fill the U.S.A. section of the park immediately following the ceremony, including jugglers, stilt-walkers and musical performances. A patriotic fireworks display will begin at nightfall inside the park.
Six Flags Over Georgia’s 45th Anniversary is presented by Jeff Foxworthy's Original Grit Chips.
The park debuted all-new shows as a part of the 45th anniversary season, including iLuminate™, the sensational dance-in-the-dark show that placed third on last summer’s hit television competition series “America’s Got Talent.” iLuminate will run through August 12.
Six Flags Over Georgia is offering a Summer Thrill Pass for just $54.99, the same price as a one-day admission. The Summer Thrill Pass includes unlimited visits to the park all summer long. The park is open daily through August 12. For more information, visit sixflags.com/overgeorgia.
They've also sent us a press release about the returning favorite Dive-In Movies at Six Flags White Water.
Six Flags White Water is bringing back the guest favorite Dive-In Movies this summer to offer families the chance to catch the latest films while relaxing in the Atlanta Ocean Wave Pool. The park will project full-length movies on to a 22-foot screen atop the wave pool to provide a refreshing way to watch a movie.
“For a number of years, our guests have been asking that we bring Dive-In Movies back to Six Flags White Water,” said Melinda Ashcraft, park president. “We are thrilled to deliver such an entertaining and unique activity that is fun for the entire family and guests of all ages.”
Dive-In Movies will be shown each Thursday evening in June and July and are included with park admission. Movies will begin just after park closing at 7 p.m.
