Rides and Shows

Roller coasters:

Mind Bender: It is painted with question marks representing The Riddler. This ride features 2 complete loops and a third mind bending half loop. Also, this coaster soars in between a row of trees which is terrifying, yet fabulous.

Ninja: The ninja goes around in 6 upside down loops and features sudden turns everywhere and it all takes place in the middle of a man made pond or above it I should say. The spins and loops go at such a fast clip that it's hard to keep up with them.

Goliath: This ride has a 200 feet hill and it goes 70 miles per hour which is the fastest of any coaster at this park except the Superman. Also, the ride covers almost 9 acres of tracks.

Batman: This roller coaster does four upside down loops. Your feet dangle in the air because the coaster carts are floorless. The area with this ride is decorated and fixed up to look like Gotham city.

Superman: Ride of Steel goes 73 miles per hour and spirals through a 78 foot capsule. You will be going face first to get to experience Superman flight.

The Scream Machine: This wooden coaster didn't have any loops but, it has 28 hills and 2 big drops. It was the parks first coaster that opened along with the Dalonah Mine Train.

Georgia Scorcher: This coaster has twists, turns and complete loops but, it's unique for a completely different reason. In this coaster, you ride it standing up. There are no seats.

Dare Devil Dive: Your lifted 95 feet up and dropped vertically strit into three inversions. This ride takes your breath away on that first drop with the odd angle your hanging at.

Thrill Rides:

Acrophobia: This is the scariest ride in the park. Your in a floorless cart and when you get 200 feet in the air you tilt 20 degrees forward and drop.

Sky Coaster: The Sky Coaster swings 180 feet in the air back and forth. You can fly through the air by yourself or with someone with you. This ride is very popular but it cost extra to ride it.

Family Rides:

Monster Mansion: This ride is for everyone. Enter the dark mansion in the water on a boat. Cruise through the mansion amidst creepy sounds and hilarious sights.

Thunder River: Feel the thrill of white water rafting in this bumpy water ride. Watch out or you will be soaked from head to toe.

Dahlonega Mine Train: This is a roller coaster for kids between the ages of 10-15. This is a good ride to start on before starting the larger coasters.

Bumper Cars: Adults and kids can ride in these cars and ram into each other from the rear or in a head on collision.

Hanson Cars: These old times cars only go 10 miles per hour but they give you a nostalgic look at the park and it's a chance for the young ones to steer the moving cars.

Carousel: The carousel is always popular at any amusement park especially for young kids who enjoy riding the horses and sitting in the chariots as the merry go round goes round and round.

Canyon Blaster: This is a 900 foot steel coaster for kids. The hills are smaller for the children but the ride still cruises along at a descent speed. The ride is themed after Wile E. Coyote, the cartoon character.

Log Ride: I first rode this ride in 1985 and I still ride it nowadays. It slides you around in a log floating on water. The rider goes over to small hills. In the end you plunge down a 30 foot hill at high speeds before making a splash.

Ferris Wheel: This park has an 80 foot wheel and also a mini Ferris wheel for the young ones.

Splash Waterfalls: Ride this boat to the very top of a roller coaster type hill and drop off and when you hit the bottom the splash will shower the onlookers. Some say they prefer getting soaked from afar than the ride.

Sky Buckets: These buckets take you from one end of the park to the other on a steel cable that spans the park.

Entertainment:

Batman Stunt Show: This show features the original Bat Mobile and plenty of explosions for Batman fans and thrill seekers alike.

Looney Toons Characters: You and your family can get your picture taken at any time with Daffy Duck, Sylvester and Tweety. No need to stand in line to see them because, they are walking freely through the park.

Dining: The park has over 30 locations to eat at but, I am only going to list the top ones that I've visited. There are drink machines located throughout the park and vendors selling alcohol and frozen lemonade at all times.

Dee Jay's Diner: The best burgers, fries, fried chicken, hot dogs that you can find around. This restaurant is very similar to the Huddle or Waffle House.

Daddy O's: This pizza and pasta parlor serves lasagna, salads and much more. This is a sit down style restaurant.

Crazy Horse Deli: If you have ever been to a McAllisters or Jason's Deli, Crazy Horse Deli is very similar. Clubs, subs and sandwiches adorn this delicatessen.

Ben & Jerry's: Their ice cream is delicious and the strawberry ice cream cone is my favorite. They also make a mean funnel cake.

Coldstone Limited: I have always loved vanilla ice cream but, here at Coldstone they also have yogurt and freshly squeezed lemonade.

      What was your favorite ride? I hated El Turo - that was the toughest to handle its not good for the body.

      Superman was one of my favorite

      Back in 2000 when we were still living in GA, we visited this Six Flags often. One thing we liked so much is that there was ample play space for a five, six, seven year old...as my grandson grew, the places for him to play and have fun grew with him. We, the grandma and the Momma, enjoyed it for many reasons...not the least of which was the fact that even though it was always busy we did not feel cramped and like it was overcrowded. Thanks for sharing this.
