Six Flags Over Georgia announces Monster Mansion for 2009

Posted Tuesday, September 16, 2008 10:35 AM | Contributed by gamndbndr

The Monster Plantation water ride at Six Flags Over Georgia will cease to exist in its current state when the park closes for the season after Halloween. The ride will be totally renovated in time to be unveiled as Monster Mansion in May of 2009. Monster Plantation opened in 1981 and has been a must-ride attraction for families at Six Flags. It has consistently ranked as one of the park's most popular attractions.

Quotes from the article:

"It has consistently ranked as one of the park's most popular attractions."

“Monster Plantation has been a guest favorite for almost three decades..."

So what I get from this is "If it's not broke...fix it!" Unless parts of the ride are falling into disrepair why mess with a classic ride that people seem to love just the way it is? Were talking about the only non-coaster ride that is typically included in their Flash Pass.

While there is a saving grace in that Gary Goddard will be doing the update, I also can't help but feel this will change the ride for the worst.

Maybe because it is cool inside this ride and out of the broiling southern temperature.We ride it most trips unless the line is out of the Que

I am in the south so to steal a line from the late Lewis Grizzard.
"Don't go outside that where the heat is"

Don't get me wrong this is a nice little ride but they could throw baseballs at me and I would still ride it to get out of the heat.

I wouldn't mind a flat dark ride inside in the air conditioning
as their next ride.

^Shake Rattle and Roll works for that (getting out of the heat)....but the ride cycle is VERY short for the amount of time spent in load/unload. Monster Plantation was already improved when they did the upgrades to the sound system. This seems like another RoS/X situation, where they're spending big dollars on rehabs for rides that DON'T need them. You get more free advertising from a new ride. ;)

Yeah but i am gonna put my pass money in the savings account to wait for the one day December sale (like last year) they were 45.00 and a free drink bottle.if they do it again it would be 37.50 (25% off)
that will save me 50.00 bucks as I have to buy 4.
