Took the kids and some of their friends to Six Flags Over Georgia Monday. They had a blast. I had my 6,12 and 15 year olds and two of their friends. So you can imagine we hit a variety of rides and sections of the park. The 12plus group did all the major rides (Ninja had practically no line). Jack loved Thomas Town and Bugs Bunny World. And even though Thunder River was closed we were able to cool off on Splashwater Falls. The park wasn’t crowded at all, most of the lines were shorter than you’d imagine and the park staff was more than friendly with this dad – every time I opened the map I’d find someone asking if they could help me.
Some of the most exciting rides the kids went on include Mind Bender, Arachnophobia, Georgia Scorcher, Georgia Cyclone, Superman: Ultimate Flight, and Goliath. Rides like Goliath are gravity-defying thrills that you definitely need to check out. It goes up to 70 mph and will take you around the park through zero-gravity loops, floating hills, drops, and high-bank turns. Jason, 15, had been on them before and tries to hit them all every time we go – but, he has his favorites. My 12 year old daughter found herself screaming at every turn on every ride.
Season passes are the way to go for a large family. It includes hundreds of dollars worth of Six Flags Over Georgia discounts. They can be used over the course of the season. Every time you visit the park, you will receive additional coupons. Two visits and it’s paid for. Additional perks on these season passes include things like free tickets for your friends on select days and free special events. Plus, don’t forget the refillable beverage containers are the best buy (free refills that day and only 99 cents on return visits – instead of 3.99 a drink). The Flash pass is another deal that will get you ahead of long summer lines.
