Six Flags Over Georgia, the Southeast’s largest regional theme park, announces the start of its longest season ever with unprecedented pricing, new shows, and a monster of a makeover. For the first time in its 42-year history, Six Flags Over Georgia is opening in the month of February.
To mark the occasion, the park is hosting the Six Flags Friends Blanket Drive, allowing guests the opportunity to donate a new or gently used blanket and receive 50 percent off main gate general admission during opening weekend. All blankets will be donated to the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta’s Regional Commission on Homelessness.
As part of the extended season long celebration, Six Flags Over Georgia will offer a line-up of new shows and attractions that provide top-tier entertainment as well as guest benefits that ensure a value-packed experience for the entire family. Some of the major headlines this season include:
$49.99 for Season Passes – the lowest price in years and only $10 more than a one-day ticket. Season Passes offer unlimited visits to any Six Flags theme park in the United States, five free tickets for friends and more than $300 in savings on in-park food and fun. In addition, Season Pass holders will enjoy exclusive ride times as well as a private Season Pass Holder Appreciation night on September 4.
Bring your little monsters! The all-new Monster Mansion is set to open in May with a whole new storyline, new characters and interactive elements. Formerly Monster Plantation, this iconic ride will have its own merchandise store where guests may purchase Monster Plantation and Monster Mansion items as well as take a trip through the ride’s new mini-museum.
Pure Country – a new live show opening Memorial Day weekend in the Crystal Pistol Music Hall. This high-energy song and dance musical will have guests toe tappin’ to some of country music’s most popular hits.
The Best of Dick Clark’s Bloopers – this new interactive show in the Drive-In Theatre features a live host who encourages audience members to create their own blunders while watching some of the all-time great missteps from Dick Clark’s collection.
Cold Stone Express – Located in the Gotham City section of the park, guests can enjoy pre-mixed Cold Stone favorites, waffle cone treats and chocolate dipped cones at this express version of the ice cream specialties store.
Additionally, Six Flags Over Georgia offers fun for the entire family with 10 thrilling roller coasters, two children’s themed areas and meet and greets with Six Flags’ world famous cast of characters including Mr. Six – the ageless, dancing, rater-of-fun who’s back and in the park all season long beckoning guests to have More Flags. More Fun.
