Six Flags Over Georgia announces Dare Devil Dive roller coaster

Posted Wednesday, September 1, 2010 12:35 PM | Contributed by Jeff

Dare Devil Dive's mission begins as you're pulled straight up to the sky on a special vertical chain lift, then slowly roll to the top of the tower nearly 100-feet in the air. After an agonizing pause at the crest of the summit, you plummet downward at an angle that is beyond straight down — it actually angles inward at a blistering 52 mph.

Almost sounds like they're justifying it as the difference between a "dive" and a normal drop...

Lets not forget Maverick and Steel Hawg...

Did Six Flag's marketing staff seriously not have internet connection to check RCDB or are they just that new to the industry?

EDIT: Looks like Tekwardo beat me to Maverick :P

Maybe I'm being unnecessarily harsh to the fine people of Georgia, but the last time I was there I spoke to someone who thought that Ireland was somewhere near Atlanta...
