Choice of Six Flags

Wednesday, December 31, 2003 12:13 PM
If you had to chose between which six flags to go to which one would you pick if you were living in VA and didn't want to drive to far around the world. I have only been to the one in Maryland. What do you all think of the NJ, or GA park.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg. ;)

LOL. Thats a good choice, but we do that every year. I'm looking to get some new coasters on my list.

I only been to NJ and I like the coasters alot, hate the people! I really want to go to SFOG. So I would go there and then plan a trip up north and hit SFGADV,Dorney,Hershey, and Knoebles! Good luck!

Thanks, Ya I feel the same about the six flags in maryland. The coasters are good, but the people don't seem to know why they are there. The park it's self could use some clean up the only thing that's going for them is the rides. We are thinking about GA but NJ is a little closer to us.

New Jersey for the coasters alone!!!!!!!!!

If you feel that way about the Maryland park, you'll feel that way times 10 about the Jersey park.

Jersey has a slightly better coaster line-up....barely (Medusa beats Scorcher in my eyes - but Georgia's S:UF is better)

Georgia has the nicer park and all around better atmosphere which to me wins the decision based on the almost equal coaster line-up.

Just my take on it.

Tough choice. One one hand, there's Nitro, Medusa, two incredible Premier shuttles, and that wacky, twisted Togo that everyone hates (but me), and on the other, there's two excellent woodies, the best B&M standup (this side of the Mississippi, at least), and the sheer Schwarzkopf bliss that is the Mind Bender. I like both parks about equally, quite honestly (though I haven't ridden either S:UF).

What's wrong with NJ people? You act as though SFGAdv is the scene of a gang war or something. I've been to the park dozens of times and have yet to be stabbed or beaten, and not once have I encountered anything close to what I'd consider to be a "rough" crowd.

The park is a nice place, has good (steel) coasters, and actually has some of the best ride crews that I've seen outside of Orlando and Sandusky.

I'd go to SFoG in a heart beat. The park is much better run than SFGAdv and has a better atmosphere.

Well , I've been to Over Georgia a Few too many times , so I'd rather go to SFGADv.

If you Do Georgia , Remember that nearly every coaster in the park is the best in the Back seat. An exception is Mindbender , which actually has slight ejector air in seat 1-3. Also , Ninja is best in second to back(less headbanging , but more boring:().

Keep in mind as well that the Rumors are pointing to a few new flats at SFOG.

Hey , for the First Time ever I actually have New Year's Plans!

Thanks for all the info. Right now we are looking more toward GA, but trying to see what else in the area there is to do, I don't want to spend all week there I don't think.

Stone Mountain is near SFOG. Not really an amusement park, but they do have some attractions of an amusement nature.

American Adventures is also very close. More of a kiddie park, but you may find something to do (and get a credit on Ridgeline Racer) and the Six Flags White Water park is right next door (they're actually connected).

Just some park related ideas for the Atlanta area. :)

Once again, another topic about Six Flags involving SFGADV, and once again, more people saying negative stuff about the " people". If your affraid of us in the northeast, dont bother going to the park. All we need to see is another post in this site taking cheap shots at us who live near and attend SFGADV.

I dont consider the crowd when i go to BGW or as im trying to get to CP or where ever, why should some of you be that way about the NY/NJ area? *** Edited 12/31/2003 10:31:23 PM UTC by Ride It***

Also in Atlanta , world of Coke) and Underground Atlanta(if you want to be touristy). If you go to Whitewater , turn left out of the Parking lot and you can also see the Atlanta-Famous Big Chicken.

And , of course , Los Reyes , the best Mexican Restaurant in the world. *** Edited 12/31/2003 10:47:00 PM UTC by thepinkdoomofmonkeys***

First, Great Adventure and SFOG are both great parks. I have been to both and athough Great Adventure is only 2 hours from me I prefer Over Georgia. I went to Six Flags over Georgia for the first time this summer and was extremely impressed. It had a nice atmosphere and an excellent collection of coasters. Georgia Cyclone, Mindbender, Georgia Scorcher are some of the best coasters of their kind at the park. It seems all the coasters were built special for that park.

As far as other parks around the area, if time and travel permit I would recommend hitting Dollywood, Carowinds and Lake Winnie. You can choose to hit all three or just one of them, they are all excellent parks, IMO.

I've heard amazing things about Mindbender, but from sheer coaster lineup, GAdv. seems to take the cake.

I've been to GAdv. many many times, and while I've never been beaten, stabbed, mugged, or given any trouble of any sort, it's still not as friendly as a lot of the other parks I've been to. Even the most professional ops aren't all that friendly (but they do get the job done). On the other hand, I don't know what was up with the Medusa crew, but they were stacking all three trains of a three train op all summer long.

^ Andy , You've heard a bit Misleadingly. Mindbender isn't amazing. It is however , the most Reridable coaster in the park.

Just stating a quick belief.

^ Mindbender is a Schwarzkopf therefore it has to be amazing.

^ But you lied.
