The gang heading up to Georgia. Left to Right: Myself, Lauren, Joy, Matthew and Jackie.
We left Orlando at 3:30am to get to Six Flags Over Georgia for opening. Here's Matthew adding up his coaster count so he can figure out what coaster to make his 100th.
We made a pit stop a long the way.
Joy showing off the classiness of South Georgia.
We arrived at the park a little bit after opening.
Batman - The Ride
Mindbender. My personal favorite steel roller coaster.
Look at those sexy Schwarzkopf curves
From the plaza you get some nice angles of Goliath
Time to try out our new season passes.
It's a little strange not having our photos on the pass anymore.

We started our day by heading the British section of the park.
First ride of the day was Georgia Cyclone.
The line wasn't terribly long.
The gang in line for Georgia Cyclone. All of us on this trip, except Matthew have been to Six Flags Over Georgia.
A couple of the coasters were trying out a Single Rider line. ...it made absolutely no sense. It was just one of the rows in the station, and the attendants would sometimes pull people from it.
We saw a lot of your typical first day of operations problems. Such as hitting any sort of dispatch interval. It was 5 - 7 minute dispatches.
We were pleased to see that Georgia Cyclone was running with the trims OFF!
Matt's very excited for his first ride.
The airtime on this part of the ride is ridiculously terrifying.
Seriously, Georgia Cyclone was kicking total butt!
My cousin Joy in line for the Dahlonega Mine Train.
The crew here was doing a great job sending trains out on time.
Next, the kiddies went and rode Canyon Blaster. I watched
One of Six Flags' greatest gems.
Monster Mansion is one of my favorite dark rides.
Matthew and I ready for the picnic.
Lauren, Jackie and Joy are also ready to go to this monster picnic.
The operator was letting us know that humans are allowed.
If you have zero idea what I'm talking about, click here.
We were impressed to find that they were giving out actual cups of water.
Ugh...Matthew needed the credit.
Joy and Lauren for their brutal ride on Ninja.
They came back claiming it wasn't as rough as it has been. Note: These are Arrow trains on the track from Scream Machine at Great Adventure. I'd like to point out the random left-over Arrow restraint on it behind Joy. Also, they were running only one train and dispatching every 8 minutes.
Next was on to the Great American Scream Machine.
GASM is a beautiful and fun coaster.
Almost our turn to ride.
Yup, that's Superman - Ultimate Flight. Yup, we rode it. ...yup. Moving on
Hanson Cars, Up Up and Away and the Riverview Carousel.
Time for some Sky Buckets.
Matthew on the Sky Buckets. It's a little higher than the ones at Busch Gardens Tampa that he's used to
Still not as terrifyingly tall as Great Adventure's.
Monster Mansion from the Sky Buckets.
This is the only photo of Georgia Scorcher I took on this visit. It was decent. I actually enjoy it.
Goliath towers over the front of the park.
Some more photos of Goliath.
Time to head down to Gotham.
Crime Wave was not having the best day. We saw this multiple times throughout the day.
Matthew in front of his 100th roller coaster. Mindbender!
This coaster is pure perfection.
It's filled with airtime.
And it's very forceful.
Generic Batman The Ride. But still fun.
Open door leading to restricted area fence. ...this is how people get beheaded!
Batman / BatMobile / BatMatt
Oh Dare Devil Dive...
It's really not that thrilling.
The capacity is pretty terrible on it too.
Goliath is a really fun, smooth, airtime filled ride.
Time to hitch a ride! (Oh yea, gotta love lame captions)
Dare Devil Dive
Great American Scream Machine
The girls went shopping, so Matt and I rode Monster Mansion again.
Sky Screamer. The only ride in the world that literally terrifies me.
The Riverview Carousel is always a must.
In typical fashion, Acrophobia was down most of the day.
But it did open, and we got to ride it.
We ended our day by riding Mindbender.
Unfortunately Mindbender was only running 1 train all day.
Matthew and Jackie love Mindbender just like the rest of us.
We'll end this PTR here. Everyone exhausted at the hotel.
Overall, we had a great visit.
