Great American Scream Machine

Tackle the living legend

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 3,450 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.

Ready for a great serving of what classic wooden roller coasters do best? The time-tested wooden design guarantees maximum airtime on a series of drops up to nine stories tall. You won’t believe how intense the action is at a blazing 57 miles per hour. But then again, quality is the number one reason the Great American Scream Machine has stood the test of time.

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.
