Great family fun! – I have having fun here for 30 years. This place is great. The rides are awesome. The lines can be long however with the rapid/smart pass you bypass all of the waiting. I will continue to take my kids here for years.
Good rides, but it got much more expensive all of a sudden! – What happened this year (2007)? I like Six Flags - I buy a season's pass every year or two, but even the early-season price went up $20 this year! $15/day for parking? Too rich for me - I'll have to look for cheaper entertainment options elsewhere.
The whole point of the season's pass was to be able to drop by for a few hours in the evening to avoid the crowds and heat. Maybe others can afford these prices to ride a handful of rides per visit - but I can't.
It's a shame - the rides are great.
Good Entertainment – The rides were fun. The park was a bit hilly for families with small children. Food at Ms. Dixies was deplorable.
High Dollar – I know the real estate in Atlanta is expensive, but $15 to park in the parking lot, $49 to get in the park, $8 for a drink, not to mention if you want to ride anything, Flash pass $35 first person. This park would be nice if the prices were more family oriented. Not to mention the extras that cost.
The place for breathtaking, lunch-losing thrill rides. – The Scene
The big daddy is the Georgia Scorcher, one of the Southeast's tallest and fastest stand-up roller coasters. About a dozen others tempt thrill seekers like Deja Vu, a boomerang roller coaster and Acrophobia, a 200-foot rotating tower-drop ride. But the biggest attraction is Superman, the South's only coaster in which riders are suspended in a flying position. Also check out Viper's 360-degree loop, the Ninja's corkscrews, Mindbender's triple loop, the Freefall's 10-story drop and the Great Gasp's 20-story drop.
There are plenty of tamer rides and other things to do. See that silly wabbit in Bugs Bunny Land, get spooked at Monster Plantation, swing in a cable car or take a breather while you watch a musical stage show. By the end of the day, you'll be exhausted, wet from the splash of the Log Flume and sticky from sno-cones and cotton candy.
Bring Your Wallet – You will definately need a couple hundred dollars to have a good time at this park. Everything you do once you get in the gate cost you. If you are planning to ride any rides at all you should bite the bullet and get ripped off a little more and get the Q-bot Gold pass. So you can actually ride the rides without waiting all day. But Its gonna caost you about $170 dollars for 6 people. The employees were definately rude. You could tell that 99% of them werent making it a career.
The cost is high and the lines are long – SixFlags is over priced for food, games etc.. They need to replace Ninga, Cyclone and Dejauv. Dejavu is always broken and Ninga is a neck breaker. SixFlags employees are rude. On a normal day you maybe get to ride 5-6 rides. SixFlags needs to clean up their employees, rides, prices and the park itself (nasty). SixFlags needs to look into some different rides like I have seen at other SixFlags parks. If the rides are great for other locates then why not Atlanta? SixFlags need to stay open later like they use to. I loved riding the rides at night when it was dark outside. I don't why they have lights on the rides when they close before dark. When I was a kid I would SixFlags until 11:00 or 12:00 at night. The later it got the more rides you could ride. They were fun riding at night.
Six Flags need some serious help! – OK...so when I was a kid, the prices of tickets were fairly decent. As I got older, the prices rose. That would be OK, if I knew what I was paying for. The service by the employees was very poor, the facilities were disgusting, the landscaping was poorly kept. Not to mention, if I wanted to use fastpass, I had to pay for it. At the Disney parks, you just use your ticket. You don't have to pay another $20 or so to use the fast pass device. Six Flags need to take a lesson from Disney. They may have more thrill rides, but Disney scored higher in everything else!
You will be Hooked! – A season pass is definitely the way to go if you plan to go to Six Flags over Atlanta. The lines to ride the rides are long, so buy the advance to the front badge. It's worth it.
Next, get ready to be wisked away on the Superman ride. You will be riding with your arms stretched out and your face facing the ground. It's worth the wait.
Next, avoid Acrophobia. Dropping that fast from the gound is just a terror.
My man and I go so much that we should become stockowners in Six Flags.
Sure, it does not have nearly as many roller coasters as Six Flags Magic Mountain, but it suits us just fine for a hometown favorite.
Gone downhill – I used to look forward to visiting Six Flags every summer while growing up, but now it is just miserable. Careless employees, unbearable guests and unkempt facilities are absolutely ridiculous. The Monster Plantation is quite pitiful. This will be the last year I will waste money on a season pass.
