Parks to Introduce a Venomous, New Waterslide, Refurbished Georgia Classic and a Year of Exciting Events
AUSTELL, Georgia — February 14, 2022 — Preparations have begun at Six Flags Over Georgia, the Thrill Capital of the South, and Six Flags White Water, the South’s Most Thrilling Waterpark, for the 2022 season. This season features a venomous, new waterslide, an update to a classic rollercoaster, bigger and better events, and additional enhancements to the guest experience.

NEW FOR 2022 – Python Plunge Slithers its Way into Six Flags White Water
This spring, Six Flags White Water will debut Python Plunge, a fast-paced, two-person waterslide featuring multiple swirling discs and adrenaline-pumping drops. Reaching five stories tall and 500 feet long, Python Plunge snakes its way through the park’s beautiful, natural landscape, and gives guests a thrilling journey down the hill to the splashdown below.

Refurbishing a Georgia Classic
In 2021, Six Flags Over Georgia resumed a multi-year refurbishment on the classic, wooden rollercoaster, The Great American Scream Machine. Introduced to the park in 1973, The Great American Scream Machine is a designated American Coaster Enthusiast national rollercoaster landmark. It remains a nostalgic favorite among guests. Just in time for the park’s 55th anniversary, this restorative project includes a complete re-tracking and the replacement of much of the wooden ride structure. The park plans to unveil the updated classic rollercoaster this spring.
