A few weeks ago I took a trip to a theme park.
WITHOUT THE KIDS.
It should be a sin according to my 8 year old, but as it was my first time ever at 6 Flags over Georgia, and when they invited me to come check out more on what they were up to at the park, I was more than happy to learn what exactly makes it tick.
And no…it’s not just Bugs Bunny (although he doesn’t hurt either!)
A few things that I want to share with you:
- Six Flags has stroller parking and rental
- Changing stations for kids
- Discounted admission for children
- There is a Hotline available inside the park
- You can enjoy your day more with
And the best way to show you the park is through pictures, so take a look at some of what you can expect as a visitor!

Introducing the Six Flags Super Moms!
The next year, myself and three other Southern moms are going to taking some of our family adventure into the heart of the Six Flags Adventure to show you all you can expect with the Six Flags over Georgia park, upcoming events, and assisting in releasing some VERY VERY exciting news for the Six Flags family.
To get you started, here is a video my day! As you can tell, I go through a lot of hairstyles in this short 6 hour spam. It starts out all dried and cute and slowly coverts to half up, pony tail and finally what I call my “mom gives up” look, which is a full on top of my head hair up.
Those roller coasters make you forget about looks pretty quick!
Our day started out learning about the park. As this was my first time, all of it was new and it was pretty exciting to learn.
Beautification of Six Flags
The park is 28% green space and has its own greenhouse that produces 50,000 plants and flowers annually. There are two wells that help decrease off site water usage from the county and they participate with recycling throughout the park. I loved seeing how much they are doing to make the park self sustaining and taking the burden off of local areas. They are very aware and moving forward with some great ideas for the park!
Of course, what is Six Flags without some Screams??
If you are looking for thrills, you need to look no where else. While at the park I actually came across a guy exiting a coaster that was on a “Six Flags” tour where he was driving to all the parks and enjoying the coasters…and why not? Six Flags boasts some world record coasters and thrill rides. You can read more about the accessibility guide here.
What’s new at Six Flags?
Sky Screamer new for 2013
A colossal 24 stories tall, this ride is the TALLEST ride in the theme park and boasts panoramic views of Georgia’s Skyline.
I am scared of heights. Terrified.
I even hate getting on planes.
I got on this ride!!
I can’t say I didn’t scream almost the entire time but it was pretty awesome. The view was amazing and I suggest you TRY. Of course it started raining while we were up there so it was like being in a hurricane, but I did it!!
There will also be some new and exciting news coming in just a few days and Ill be sure to update here about that as soon as I get the green light!
Overall thoughts from this Super Mom:
I grew up in Florida. I am no stranger to the theme park. I have been to Dollywood, Hershey Park, Universal Studios, Disney, Carrowinds, and I have even worked at Busch Gardens. I have to say that Six Flags over Georgia carries a bit of everything in one. A caring staff, a VERY VERY clean park, something to do for every member of your family including areas for the tiny ones like Phoenyx, the older ones like Charlotte and your adventurous teens.
With gluten free choices there were so many food different options, including dining passes, that made eating a snap. Last, but not least, having the ability to use Flash Pass made the choice to go to this park also a head above the rest. If you are in or around Six Flags, whether you are visiting or live locally, make sure you keep up with the brand new initiatives and big announcements and take full advantage of the FUN your family can have.
And before I forget, do not forget to start making those plans for the big HALLOWEEN FRIGHT FEST.
