On Saturday we drove to Six Flags Over Georgia, it’s about 2 1/2 hours from here. It was a good day and we had fun (until the car ride home that is…when I got a full blown migraine) but it was definitely not one of the ‘best’ parks we have visited.
Normally I wouldn’t have chosen this particular weekend (Columbus Day weekend) but the Free tickets expired on the 31st and we have something every other weekend this month, so that pretty much decided the date. There were quite a few people there…which was fine…until the major rides started breaking down! Batman, Mind Bender, and Superman were down on and off throughout the day, this caused backups at many of the other rides in the park. The ‘kiddie’ areas were not very crowded and Bea and I hit a few while the boys went on some of the larger rides, the downside is that they were not exactly close to some of the bigger rides.
I highly recommend SKIPPING the Ninja roller coaster, it was HORRIBLE! All of us got off with neck pain and headaches! My neck is still sore and Bea’s is too and she keeps having headaches 🙁 The boys, Bea & I were in the first 3 cars of the roller coaster and as you get to the top your there for a few seconds while the back is being pulled up and we were dive bombed by a swarm of wasps! We didn’t get stung but it was crazy! Won’t be riding that ever again…truthfully we won’t visit the park again…we just were not impressed. They had this Mr. Grouchy puppet show and it was horrifying to watch a puppet call kids ‘stupid,’ ‘morons,’ and ‘idiots’ I mean come on people is that really funny?!
The pros were that the weather was great and the crowds were tolerable even if not ‘ideal’ by my standards 😉 The family meal that we purchased online using a mycokerewards.com code was awesome. It was $29.99 (for a family of 4) and it was more food than we could eat…always a nice surprise at an amusement park. Another plus was that when my headache was starting to get bad I was able to find some Tylenol in a gift shop and so $2.09 later and 2 pills in my belly I was hoping to start feeling better…sadly it was not to be. The park was decorated nicely for the Halloween theme, it wasn’t ‘scary’ and well done.
Overall a great place to visit once, for us not worth a second trip 🙂
