Fri Jun 10, 2005 1:20 pm

Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Six Flags Over Georgia (SFOG), this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Original Post:

Well, just recently footer marking have started appearing around the park, and MANY people have heard from reliable sources that SFOG will infact be recieving a B&M Hyper for the 06' season.

It is being discussed on many different forums right now, and some pictures have been taken of footer markings and survey flags.


Also, The Great Gasp and The Looping Starship will be removed to make room for the new coaster.

Great, they're taking out 2 Intamin rides to put in a B&M Hyper... :roll:

Oh well, I just hope it's better than the rest of the B&M Hypers.

This is great news, I have been waiting for SFOG to get a Hyper for a long time. :D

Removing Great Gasp!? A travesty I must say...

SFOG has a looping starship? How did I not see this when we were there?

Fri Jun 10, 2005 1:51 pm

It's like, under some bushes in the middle of the park...

Seriously though, it's right next to the Great Gasp.

^Probably because it was down, in true Six Flags fashion :P .

INTAMIN Parachutes rides are now even less if this is true. Not sure why they would remove it since it's a ladnmark, one of the first rides you see coming in from Downtown area.

Oh well, hopefully it's a nice layout and decent .. with the most recent B&M's has me a bit concerend.

Looks sort of like a Rocket Coaster. If the footers are right.. but either way... there def needs to be a true Hyper SOMEWHERE in the Southeast!

Now all I need is for Hershey to get one for next year too.. Hmmmm..


Fri Jun 10, 2005 5:21 pm

Damnit.......Where's that said Hyper MIA was supposed to get?????

well, with riding Raging Bull, I would say Georgians are lucky, but it always sucks to lose old and great rides. I mean Great OLD school rides. I wish CP had a Looping Starship. really i do.
