Park Becomes First in US to partner with Goodr in Fight Against Food Waste and For Sustainability
AUSTELL, Ga — May 17, 2021 — Six Flags Over Georgia – the Thrill Capital of the South –kicks off its longest summer season in decades, with the launch of a new community food partner, the first such partnership by a U.S. theme park. Beginning on May 21, the park will be open daily through Labor Day, September 6. Hurricane Harbor and Six Flags White Water begin daily operation May 28.
Six Flags Over Georgia is now the first U.S. theme park to partner with Goodr, a sustainable waste management company that leverages technology to combat food waste and hunger.
