Photo TR: Six Flags Over Georgia and more

Postby Midgetman82 » Thu Jun 17, 2010 8:23 pm

1) Six Flags Over Georgia: First Update (Below)
2) Six Flags White Water
3) Six Flags Over Georgia: Second Update

Flew down to meet my Mom who lives in Atlanta. She askes us what we might want to do while we are here, and Six Flags parks were the choices. My update will include photos and (soon) videos of Six Flags Over Georgia and Six Flags White Water. I don't have anything else general to say, so I'll go straight to SFOG.

The park was great, only Acrophobia was broken down and I only saw one girl throw-up, so things went well! the line for everything was either short or nearly empty, including Goliath. Scortcher was a lot of fun, it was my first time on scortcher so it almost made up for the loss of Chang in KK. Goliath was fast and had serious airtime on every hill which made for an awesome experience, though one of the trains are rougher than the other it was still fun. Mind Bender was a G-Force wake-up call for me because after the first loop, I greyed out a little for some reason. Batman had little to no airtime and seems a bit louder then most other B&M inverted coasters I've seen. I still can't believe I came off of Ninja Without a headache because I took Robb's advice and sat in the front row of the last car, I even asked people who were sitting in front of me "how was the ride", and they said it hurt them. After Ninja, I made the worst mistake and rode GASM. That roller coaster is terrible and I could tell that other people on the ride were uncomfortable too. Funny how the ride has some airtime, but its just not worth it, it hurt my Mom's neck two years ago. Superman's queue was way too slow, so was getting back into the station after the ride was over. Coming back to the front of the park the line for Goliath was pretty much empty, whitch suprised me because I thought that would be so popular that people would flock to it. The last ride I rode after that was Log Jammer, fun but the front row gets you more wet.

The only Flat ride I rode was Wheelie which was weird but fun! I went to Acrophobia before I left the park to see how it was doing because I haven't been on any sort of a free-fall ride for four to five years now, and I wanted to ride this. Low and Behold the ride was "Facing Technical Difficulties", so I only stood to look and take pictures of the car with the seats tilted forward. I skipped Georgia Cyclone because I didn't want to ride another woodie after was GASM did to me, ouch!

There you have it, that was how well the day went. I go home sweaty, sleepy, nausiated, and eating German Roasted Peanuts! If you're wondering about the girl who threw up, I was walking into Gotham and looked to my left to see a girl covering her mouth throwing up (insert object and description here), and it was a little gross. Thank you for reading and tune in next time when I upload medium quality photos of Six Flags White Water.

What day were you there? I went this Wednesday.

Pretty awesome Photo TR you've got there. I heard that Acrophobia is going to be down for a few weeks.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

Great photos, Goliath was my favorite coaster till I rode MF a week ago. The airtime on all the hills are incredible and the double helix of death is only time I ever grayed out on a coaster. Glad to see they finally repainted the signs in the Superman queue too, the last two years they were really faded. Can't wait to get back down there again.

My Ninja Video quickly uploaded to Youtube. I will have an edited version posted to YouTube and Coastertube once I get back to Kentucky in a few days.


By the way, I found Ninja in the TPR Park Index listed as "(This ride or attraction is no longer open.)". Someone should change that.

Edit: I just added a Splashwater Falls video in the first post.

Edit & Notice: If you came straight from the Six Flags Over Georgia page of the TPR Park Index, then please scroll up all the way. Thank You!

Day three of my visit, I go to Six Flags White Water and I was brave enough to bring a camera because I don't think there are enough photos of this excellent waterpark.

IMG_1845.JPG

^A lamp and a speaker playing some good music all day.

IMG_1846.JPG

^Walking into the waterpark.

IMG_1847.JPG

^Two bodyslides that ends into the Lazy River, it felt kinda awkward because it was large and seemed like it was meant to be used with an innertube.

IMG_1848.JPG

^A look at the slides.

IMG_1849.JPG

^Three awesome bodyslides I rode. And you can tell how big the chute is compared to the people on the right.

IMG_1850.JPG

^Rapids Slide, pretty fun!

IMG_1851.JPG

^The pitch black Black River Falls innertube slide.

IMG_1852.JPG

^The Bermuda Triangle Slides. I think this is the best inner tube slide in the whole waterpark.

IMG_1860.JPG


IMG_1853.JPG

^The 100 Meter Splash mat racer slide.

IMG_1855.JPG

^The end to Bahama Bob family raft slide.

IMG_1856.JPG

^The 100 Meter Splash.

IMG_1857.JPG

^100 Meter Splash and Bahama Bob Slide.

IMG_1861.JPG

^Sign for the one of the waterpark's two family raft slides.

IMG_1859.JPG

^TPR's favorite slide! Why?...

IMG_1858.JPG

^Now you know. (once in the page, scroll down)
P.S., they raised the water to be level with the white paint on the pool wall.

IMG_1862.JPG

^Dragon's Tail insane bodyslide and waterslide with the most airtime in the park.

IMG_1863.JPG

^Slightly crowded swimming pool.

IMG_1864.JPG

^Beautiful Water Wheel.

SANY0002.JPG

^I put my regular camera away to pull out my waterproof camcorder, just incase it gets wet because it was raining a little. This slide is the Bonzai pipeline slide that's in the corner of the giant pool. Its like a Proslide Superloop, but less intense, much slower, ends in a pool, and has no trapdoor.

SANY0003.JPG

^The Three Slide Body Flume slide next to it.

SANY0004.JPG

^This was a pretty fun slide, its actually my favorite bodyslide in the park (Excluding Cliff Hanger)

SANY0005.JPG

^The start of the slide (Note that the slide usually has a short line).

SANY0009.JPG

^This used to be a slide? looks dangerous in a 3ft pool. Good thing they closed it.

IMG_1865.JPG

^Noted

Wave Pool.jpg

^It started raining and people started leaving, we went to the car to wait until it blows over and Six Flags re-opens the slides.

IMG_1869.JPG

^People leaving.

IMG_1871.JPG

^American Adventures Building, I think.

IMG_1872.JPG

^The swinging ship.

IMG_1873.JPG

^Balloon ride. After a while, people returned to the waterpark and I went back to ride the tallest waterslide I've ever been on.

Fullscreen capture 6202010 21745 AM.jpg

^Crappy picture yes, but here is the Cliffhanger and Run-A-Way Rapids. Cliffhanger was an amazing slide and (as stated above) was the tallest waterslide I've ever been on.

SANY0015.JPG

^Nothing comforted people more than Carpeting!

SANY0017.JPG

You get a great complete view of Run-A-Way Rapids.

SANY0019.JPG

The Wiggles World play area is not built for kids to run, but kids do it anyways because they are having so much fun. Many kids slip and scrape their knees because they want to catch a sqirting fountain or get on a slide quickly. The whole floor in the area needs to be padded because kids love to run and the floor is very slippery.

That's all the pictures I have to show you about Six Flags White Water. I only have one video to show you that which is a video of the Bonzai Waterslide, enjoy!

Great pictures, I really liked the waterpark update since it looks like they have a lot of cool slides and you don't see waterpark reports that often.

Awesome pics!! I'm going to SFOG this Friday. Anyone have an idea about what the lines will be like??? I only went once before... Last summer on a Wednesday and it was packed!!! I'm going to get a flash pass if it's miserably crowded again :-/.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?
