Six Flags over Georgia - Thanksgiving Weekend - What's the best time to visit

Saturday, August 31, 2013 2:39 PM

I've been invited to spend Thanksgiving with some cousins in Georgia. I found out the park (SFG) will be OPEN on Thanksgiving weekend. I'd like to know from my Coaster Buzz Friends what day (Friday - Saturday or Sunday) is the best day to visit. This will be the first time I haven't been there since 1988, and acording to RCDB Seven Coasters have opened since my last visit.

Thank You.

Since most people will be in shopping malls and Walmarts the Friday after Thanksgiving, I can't imagine the park will be very busy.

I'm figuring that may be the day I'll visit. (I'm using my "National Day of Insanity" (That's "Black Friday" for those of you in Rio Linda!) Money to pay for my day at this park). If this park is anything like its Dallas Counterpart Saturday will most likely be the worst. When I visited SFOT in 1993 the park got so packed they were turning people away in the afternoon. When I visit SFOT in 2010 I visited it on a Sunday, and while I was waiting for the park to open I heard people who had came on Saturday only to be turned away because of the crowds. (I visited SF Fiesta Texas the previous day, and The waits for rides was less than 15 minutes (Thank You Sea World).

The Day I visit will depend on the weather.

My choices in preference will be:

1. Friday

2. Sunday

3. Saturday

For those just tuning in, a summary of the discussion thus far is that the best time to visit Six Flags Over Georgia is on a day that it's actually open.

Hey, at least the lines will be short, and you won't have to buy a Flash Pass.

Quite the opposite, actually. Those waits will be endless, and we'll never hear the end of it in the Trip Reports forum.

I could do my impersonation of Chevy Chase by going to a local Sporting Goods Store, then.....

Speaking of Chevy Chase, you're not gonna punch a statue of Bugs Bunny in the nose and then kidnap a security guard at gunpoint to get on Superman Ultimate Flight, are you?

Are you kidding?!! They'd lock me up and throw away the key! Then I'd NEVER be able to ride a Roller Coaster again!

My Cousins have LOTS of fun stuff arranged for me to do. During this Weekend in addition to the Festivities of Thanksgiving I will be visiting the following:

The Town that had this country's First Gold Rush.

The Tallest Waterfall east of the Mississippi Creek (You'd call it a creek too if you've ever seen the Amazon River). <G>

The Westernmost Peak of the Blue Ridge Mountain Range.
