AUSTELL, Georgia — March X, 2022 — Six Flags Over Georgia—the Thrill Capital of the South—kicks off its 55th season this Saturday, March 5, with an array of enhancements to the guest experience, the park’s historic line up of thrill rides and roller coasters, and new dining options.

“We are excited to celebrate 55 years of Six Flags Over Georgia with a principal focus on elevating the guest experience,” said Park President Dale Kaetzel. “The investments will feature aesthetic enhancements throughout the park with updates to classic attractions like The Great American Scream Machine, introduction of new and delicious food offerings and a focus on the charm that set Six Flags Over Georgia apart when it opened 55 years ago.”

Technology and Mobile App Upgrades
This season, the park is introducing a myriad of technology and mobile app upgrades to expedite the planning and in-park experience for guests, including:

  • A new mobile app feature that allows guests to add their Pass to their Google Pay Wallet or Apple Wallet, expediting the front gate experience and reducing wait time; and
