My colleague Devin can't get to the park as often as he would like to, but I visited Six Flags Over Georgia for the first time during my Spring Break. For those who don't know me. My name is Cale Roschen and I drove all the way from Chicago to bring you guys this update. That's about eleven hours. Unfortunately this means I missed the Opening Weekend at my home park of Six Flags Great America, but will hopefully get there soon and update that part of the site. This trip report starts on a Saturday afternoon around Four.
As I would soon learn, a good portion of the park was still under construction and being revamped as DC Super Friends.
Batman looked familiar yet different because it's the same layout with a different paint scheme.
It was odd being able to see all of Batman's layout. Didn't know it at the time but Mindbenderin the background will be the surprise coaster of the park.
I thought Mindbender's loops would be the most intense part of the ride, but it was actually the helices in between them.
Walking to the park surrounded by B&M's was a great feeling.
I was surprised to find Trams running from the lot. It wasn't that much of a walk, especially compared to how far Great America's lot could be.
While waiting for my folks to exit the restroom I quickly realized that Goliath had sent three trains and Georgia Scorcher was silent.
The entrance was rather crowded and congested.
Yet the park did not have all of their gates or even their Discover Card Line open. Holders of The Official Card of Six Flags could not enter the park in a more timely manor.
Georgia Scorcher was not open, yet the trains were in the station.
While trying to figure out where to eat, we stopped in at guest relations for a list of locations that accept Dining Pass. However we came to no prevail. Also, no rainchecks can be given for closed attractions.
Well knowing Georgia Scorcher would be closed, we headed back towards Goliath.
On our way there I noticed a building resembling a Johnny Rockets or a "Coasters" that would be in a Cedar Fair Park. It didn't have too much of a line, so we ate our Dinner at Dee Jay's Diner.
I got a bacon cheeseburger with a Brownie cup and my folks decided to get a soft pretzel as their snack. I usually tend to stay away from them since they are often oversalted and not as soft in actuality. However, this was was great. It was fresh and delicious.
Goliath looked like it had a decent line, but dispatches were great. All in all, it ended up being a little over a half hour. That was for front row too, which the grouper reluctantly gave to us.
I know Single Rider Lines aren't meant to save time, but that is a huge incentive of them. So this one located only in the station didn't interest me.
Monster Mansion also surprised me. The ride and story-line was odd to say the least, but it was well done.
With the retheming of this area into DC Super Hero Friends comes the refurbishment of Canyon Blaster to Joker Funhouse Coaster. Not to mention Ninja being repainted and receiving new trains.
If this is an ad for Fright Fest 2016 or leftover from last year's festival, I'm not sure. But I found it interesting.
Overall I was impressed with Boomtown. But as I'm a teenager, I moved on to the real stuff. This of course means the coasters.
With that being said "That's All Folks" for Boomtown in this report.
After riding Cyclone and Mine Train, I found myself heading back towards the park's other wooden coaster The Great American Scream Machine. On my way there I got a better vantage point on the park's only family coaster.
Also when queuing up for The Great American Scream Machine, I was able to take some pics of Ninja being repainted.
Last minute I decided to go over to Superman before closing. Even though it's been cloned, I've been told this was the best of them.
Superman was a great ride. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the reports were correct. This was far superior to it's clones at Great America and Great Adventure.
After the park closed I went to the ERT on Mindbender thanks to ACE. Yes that would be American Coaster Enthusiasts. This is bittersweet because I don't have any pictures, but I got to ride it over half a dozen times without leaving the station. Make sure to check back for Part Two.
