Six Flags Over Georgia Announces Plans to Introduce Six New Shows in 2012


Park offers incredible season pass deal in preparation for 45th anniversary season

Six Flags Over Georgia today announced that it will celebrate its 45th anniversary by introducing six new shows during the 2012 season. An exciting array of new shows will light up venues across the park, including an all-new outdoor experience that will highlight the park’s storied history since its opening in 1967.

Two thrilling new productions will debut inside the Crystal Pistol Music Hall, including an illuminated dance show with stunning visual effects. Other shows include the return of “We Got the Beat” in the BUGS BUNNY World Theater, a new 60’s-inspired dance show in the U.S.A. section of the park and the return of a fan favorite show during Fright Fest 2012.

“We are excited to celebrate our park’s 45th season with even more live entertainment for our guests,” said Melinda Ashcraft, park president. “With our thrilling roller coasters, family rides and water attractions, these all-new shows are the perfect complements and will truly make Six Flags Over Georgia an exceptional vacation destination in 2012.”

To kick off the excitement for next season, the park is launching an incredible deal on 2012 season passes by rolling out a “Buy 3, get 1 FREE” promotion plus FREE season parking if the passes are purchased and processed by November 5, 2011. Season passes may be purchased online at sixflags.com or at the park. A season pass includes unlimited visits for the 2012 season, the remainder of 2011 including Fright Fest, free visits for friends and in-park coupons valued at more than $300.

Six Flags Over Georgia is currently open weekends-only through October 30, 2011. The park is scheduled to open for the 2012 season on Saturday, March 17.

Wholly crap where did you get that?!?!? You know what is was probably from the little air conditioned store that's the first one on your right when you enter the park. It looks like something they would sell there. Or mybe it's a promotional thing and they were selling them or handing them out on ddd opening day. It would make more sense if the pen and case were made of metal instead of woob because it's not a wooden coaster but that's ok.

It was one of the gifts we got from the park president, Melinda Ashcraft, and her staff when we were visiting SFOG in July. It's really a unique item and I like it a lot. I'd just like to know the backstory on it. Has anyone ever seen one of these in any of their stores before? I'm kind of hoping that it was perhaps a limited item that they received from Gerstlauer for buying the coaster. That would make a great story.

^ If it helps any, I can tell you that these were not given out as swag on media day, so I'm gonna assume they were a limited production item given to management.

Unfortunately there is not a great "backstory" to these... we had some nice DDD promotional items made for our Park President to give out to special guests and clients. We also had some cool DDD watches made (might see some of these things floating around during the Deep South Bash)!

SFOG might have a Sky Screamer for 2013. It just makes sense for this medium-sized park where low capacity isn't a problem.

Their average per-day attendance for the year probably isn't too far off from Magic Mountain..

If we get a roller coaster in 2013, then it will probably be one of Six Flags' signature "parking lot" coasters unless they remove something or find more space... And has anyone noticed that it seems like all of six flags' parks are located right by a river? It's so wierd...
