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.

The historic wooden coaster was recently designated as a national landmark by roller coaster enthusiasts and will celebrate its 45th anniversary in 2018.

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. You’ll swoop with great confidence and power over every rise and fall just like generations before you have. Make sure you scream loud on this timeless American classic!
