We’re at a theme park, again! But this time, it’s much closer to home: Six Flags Over Georgia. Known for its epic rides, crazy coasters and groundbreaking thrills, Six Flags has opened a new family area right across from the classically decrepit Monster Mansion. It features four different rides that cater to the smaller crowd of guests, as well as a small arcade themed after Harley Quinn. Our family was invited to tour the new Six Flags Over Georgia DC Friends area.
Before we really toured the new area, Chase, Red and I stopped in the arcade area near Goliath, where we found new games where everyone wins! Sure, we blew $5-8 bucks, but Red and I both walked away with DC Friends capes to wear to our event, and we felt extra festive. Look at that smile! (Plus, I have been asked to wear my cape at least twice this week…)
We arrived to the new DC area, across from Monster Mansion, and I was glad we left Scarlett with a sitter – we all know what Six Flags is really a teen/grown up park, and Monster Mansion was most likely the only ride she would be on. The DC area caters to the smaller guests, but I saw a few toddlers and siblings that we were left on the sidelines because they were too small to ride with family or grownups were too big to help them ride.
The all-new DC SUPER FRIENDS area features five exciting rides and attractions, including:
- SUPERMAN Tower of Power, releasing the dare-devil in thrill-seekers of all ages to take on this 65-foot tall bouncing thrill ride;
- The BATCOPTERS, an opportunity to help save Gotham City by flying high in the sky;
- WONDER WOMAN Flight School, where pilots can earn their wings by flying their own jet;
- HARLEY QUINN Games, filled with villainous games to test your skills against the best in the family
- THE JOKER Funhouse Coaster, the supreme family thrill ride named after the ultimate Super-Villain, featuring 900 feet of track, speeding at 30 miles per hour.
Check out the video below, which gives you a detailed look at each ride area, what the programs are like and the brand new paint jobs on many of the areas. I really enjoyed the split of male and female superheroes here, it was subtle addition, but welcome to many parents.
The short day was so exciting that Red was worn out and sleeping after only 3 hours. We had a great time, but will wait a few years to bring his little sister to experience the Six Flags Over Georgia DC Friends area.
“We are excited to unveil this thrilling new section just in time for the start of the summer vacation season,” said Six Flags Atlanta Properties Park President Dale Kaetzel. “This area, combined with the addition of Bugs Bunny Boomtown earlier this year, solidifies Six Flags Over Georgia as the perfect destination for family fun.” The park is open daily through August 7, which heralds the return of school here in Georgia.
