Great American Scream Machine BACKWARD

Scream BACKWARD for a limited time only!

It's the classic wooden coaster you've come to know and love for the past 45 years!

This classic wooden roller coaster has been an instantly recognizable landmark for four decades of riders at Six Flags Over Georgia. There’s no mistaking the profile of the legendary classic ride, perfectly named Great American Scream Machine. This gargantuan creature was built in 1973. It rolls out over 3,800 feet of track that will have you screaming from the moment you leave the station on your initial climb up to a dizzying 105 feet. This was sure steep back in 1973 and it’s still steep now.

But, now it's time to scream BACKWARD! You won't know where the next turn is, when you're plunging down the 10 story drop and more, as The Great American Scream Machine roller coaster will run backward for a limited time. The historic wooden coaster was recently designated as a national landmark by roller coaster enthusiasts and will celebrate its 45th anniversary in 2018.

  • A heart-pounding 105 foot climb backward while staring straight down at the ground
  • The terrifying and unsuspecting drop down nearly 10 stories backward
  • Speeds of 57 miles per hour around tight curves backward
  • More than 3,800 feet of track racing along the banks of the Chattahoochee River backward.

The very long “out and back” layout of this red, white and blue track will give you the sense of a never-ending joyride through the air BACKWARD. You’ll swoop with great confidence and power over every rise and fall just like generations before you have BACKWARD. Make sure you scream loud on this timeless American classic BACKWARD! 

This classic wooden horror has been an instantly recognizable landmark for four decades of riders at Six Flags Over Georgia. There’s no mistaking the profile of the terrifying ride, perfectly named the Great American Scream Machine. On this ride, EVERYONE will hear you scream.

This gargantuan monster was built in 1973. However lately, people have mentioned that they have heard screams from somewhere else while on the ride, as if the screams of terror were ringing in their heads.

Ready for a frightening serving of what a classic wooden roller coasters does best? The wooden design guarantees maximum scare time on a series of drops up to nine stories tall. You won’t believe how startling the action is at a blazing 57 miles per hour. You could outrun any witch alive or dead at those speeds!
