Unique Things to Do at Six Flags Over Georgia
One-of-a-kind experiences you won’t find anywhere else
Our collection of unique attractions is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. We have one-of-a-kind rides and once-in-a-lifetime family activities that you won’t find anywhere else. Check out this list of exclusive experiences only available at Six Flags Over Georgia.
1. Mind Bender has a one-of-a-kind element found only at Six Flags Over Georgia!
Opened in 1978, Mind Bender is a masterpiece by one of the most respected early steel roller coaster designers. Anton Schwarzkopf built some of the earlier looping roller coasters and Mind Bender is considered among his best. It contains a one-of-a-kind feature between the two vertical loops. An oblique circle resembles a tilted loop, but riders enter from the top instead of the bottom. This unique element delivers some supercharged positive Gs to thrill-seekers on board. Mind Bender was designated an ACE Roller Coaster Landmark in 2008 by American Coaster Enthusiasts.
2. Monster Mansion is a custom-designed innovation.
Out of only a handful of float-through dark rides in America, there is only one Monster Mansion. Unveiled in 1973 and updated and enhanced over the years, the realm of monsters starts out fun and silly before things take a dark turn and families journey into the marsh. The 107 monstrous residents are so much fun, they will make you want to come back and visit again and again.
3. The Riverview Carousel preserves a piece of history.
Riverview Park was a beloved amusement park in the first half of the 20th century. When the Chicago-area park shuttered its doors following 1967, the magnificent carousel could have been lost forever. Six Flags stepped in and acquired this piece of history and gave it a spectacular setting at the top of the hill. Manufactured by Philadelphia Toboggan Company, this historic carousel originally debuted in 1908, and today is maintained and restored delighting visitors in a tree-shaded 1900s pavilion.
4. Acrophobia is the only drop tower of its kind in the U.S.
Drop towers give an extreme thrill. Acrophobia at Six Flags is the only one of its kind in the U.S. Without a floor, riders are positioned in a near-standing position only to be tilted outward at the top of the 200-foot tower, causing them to face the ground. The tilt, the riding position and the rotating views as you rise make this ride completely unique.
5. Did you know Great America Scream Machine was the first wooden roller coaster built by Six Flags?
There are more than a hundred roller coasters in the family of Six Flags theme parks. Did you know the first wooden roller coaster built by Six Flags was Great American Scream Machine? When it opened in 1973, it was the tallest, longest and fastest roller coaster ever built. Riders were given buttons that said “Red Badge of Courage.” The 105-foot wooden coaster has been a park favorite ever since.
