Six Flags has announced two new thrill rides for their Atlanta, Georgia theme and water parks. Six Flags Over Georgia and Six Flags White Water will both enjoy the addition of new and exciting rides for the 2013 season.
Six Flags Over Georgia will add SkyScreamer, an extreme swing ride that spins guests in a 98-foot circle at speeds of 40-miles per hour atop a 24-story tower. Thirty-two guests will sit two across in open-air swings as they soar to the top of the tower, spinning around and around. At four stories taller than the park’s mega-coaster, Goliath, SkyScreamer will be the tallest attraction in the park.
In the wet and wild department, Six Flags White Water will see the addition of Typhoon Twister, the first of its kind in the state. An enclosed five-story drop blasts riders in four-passenger tubes out into a 67-foot bowl. Riders then circle the wall of the bowl several times before spinning down into the corkscrew drop chute and splashing into the pool below.
“We are beyond excited to debut these new thrilling attractions at our parks next year,” said Melinda Ashcraft, park president, Six Flags Atlanta Properties. “SkyScreamer will take thrills to new heights at Six Flags Over Georgia and Typhoon Twister is sure to make a splash at Six Flags White Water. The 2013 season will be another exciting year for our parks as we continue to provide innovative rides, shows and attractions for our guests.”
SkyScreamer and Typhoon Twister are both set to open in late spring of 2013.
