Six Flags Over Georgia opens for 50th anniversary season

The wait is over for thrill-seekers throughout the region, as Six Flags Over Georgia opens its gates for a milestone season.

The 50th Anniversary season for the Austell theme park officially begins at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 11.  This season will bring one of the most anticipated new experiences in the park’s storied history, JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis, a high-tech, 4D indoor thrill ride featuring popular DC comic superheroes including Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. 

JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis is scheduled to open on May 26.  But just in time for this weekend’s opening, Six Flags Over Georgia is launching the first-ever drop tower virtual reality ride in North America.  In partnership with Samsung Electronics America, Inc., the park will debut Drop of Doom VR (featuring mutant spiders!) on March 11.
