Over Georgia

Saturday, April 6, 2002 3:59 PM
My parents just told me we're going to Atlanta! I'm so happy because I live in NJ and never thought I'd be able to ride SUF. Can anyone tell me how good the rides are.

I haven't been on Superman yet, and Deja Vu and Acrophobia were not yet open when I visited last year. However, the other rides were superb. Mindbender is one of my favorite steelies and Georgia Cyclone is probably my favorite woodie. Almost every coaster is great, with the exception of maybe Ninja and the mine train.

The Georgia Scorcher is an excellent stand up. This park has a nice collection of coasters, and S:UF looks like it will better that.

SFoG is indeed a great park. The only rides I stay away from are the looping starship and Ninja. Everything else is wonderful. Mindbender is a classic Schwartzkopf (sp?) looper - great positive g's through the loops and the declined loop. GASM is a very picturesque out and back woodie with NO BRAKES until the end. Be prepared, though , the breaks at the end of GASM hit HARD! Batman is, well, Batman. The Scorcher is a nice compact standup. Cyclone is my favorite woodie - especially in the back! I'll be riding S:UF and (hopefully) Deja Vu on Tuesday, so I'll be able to add to that.

SFoG has one of the most solid coaster line ups in the world. Nobody can argue with the still classic B:TR, and Deja Vu, if running, is excellent as well. With Georgia Cyclone you have one of the most vicious and wild wooden coasters ever, with Scorcher you have what I think is the best stand up in the country, and.........yay! Mindbender!! I mean, c'mon, who doesn't love Mindbender?

S:UF looks good.

S:UF is awesome. I rode it Saturday on the first GP train. The pretzel loop is amazing and when your on your back i the pretzel loop it pull some very intense g's. Also the inline twist is cool becuase it executed kinda slow and drawn out. The ride isn't very intense or fast with the exception of one part but it does deliver on the flying aspect which is very fun. Also the restraints are very easy to use and are comfortable. The rest of the rides are lackluster in my oppinion. But Saturday was my first erver visit so who knows.

Perhaps you could explain what you mean on this one?

I, too, was on the first GP train last Saturday on the second row. The Pretzel Loop was very intense: at the top you get thrown into the back of your restraint and pushed very hard (3.5 Gs but feels like more) into your seat the entire inversion, and then float back into the flying position at the top. The ride is much faster when you're riding than it looks, and it is very smooth, and the inline twist will even catch you off guard when you know its coming.

Mindbender is great, as is Scorcher, Batman, and Cyclone. Deja Vu is very fun, but I found it to be a lot rougher than when it opened last year. GASM, Ninja, and the Mine Train are all worth riding as well.

I went there yesterday (unfortunately i can't add these to my track record cuz "I'm not a coasterbuzz club member") I loved Superman Ultimate Flight!!! The stand-up coaster the "Georgia Scorcher" has airtime. I loved all of the rollercoasters.

Ravenguy98, Sorry for being so vague. SFOG has some decent rollercoasters but I am very disappointed in the operations of SFOG and how the park is set up from Saturday. I am comparing it to SFGAM which is run pretty good so maybe thats why I don't like the park very well. Yes they do have a few good rides such as the Georgia Scorcher and Superman but most of the other rides didn't stand out too much for me anyways. I do regret not being able to ride Mindbender which probably is great but other than those three I think the other rides are lackluster. Georgia Cyclone was a let down becuase of the two trims and it just wasn't as smooth, out of control, and as fast as Viper at SFGAM. Batman is Batman where ever you go not a bad ride its just been cloned so many times most people have ridden it. Deja Vu is ok but then again its been cloned and once you've ridden it somewhere else then your done. GASM needs lots of work in my oppinion but thats like most Six Flags woodies. Ninja isn't too bad but it has some rough spots also. The mine train is a mine train and its not bad but its not a star in the line up either. Also Achrophobia hurt in my oppinion especially the brakes but maybe thats me. These are just my oppinion and they may be kinda swayed because of all the trouble I had on Saturday but I'm not saying its a terrible park. The coaster are good its just the operation of the park and layout which is poor in my oppinion.
