Six Flags over Georgia is right outside of Atlanta. It's basically the same as any other Six Flags, but who cares! I loooved it there., even through it rained on my parade and they closed a couple of rides down for a few minutes. My favorite ride was every ride I went on, but one in particular was this train ride; it was hilarious because my mom (the only person I was there with) doesn't ride "scary" rides such as roller coasters. Anyway, she asked the operator if the ride was scary or if it was just a regular train. They told her it wasn't scary and it was just like a normal train ride. But was it? Nope! There were loops and goops and droops and hoops and--okay, maybe not all that, but there were a lot of hills and things. My stomach nearly popped out through my back (my new expression)--not from all of the steep hills, but from my mom squeezing me so hard! She screamed like a... a... a person who screams LOUD! Some 30-something*coughs*year-old lungs, I tell ya. Anyway, there wasn't enough time to get on everything; you need at least 2 days to see the whole park. And make sure that you look fly on the coasters, because one of them takes pictures of you! I looked... how can I put this? High.
Oh, the food. You can seriously go bankrupt eating there. Why DO they have to make it so expensive? $500 for a fry. Yep, one little fry. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a lil bit, or a lot, but it was expensive.
Hmm, what else? It was cheap to get in because we had a Coke can, or was it Pepsi? Nope, it was Coke, being that they ARE located in Atlanta. Oh! I went there, too. I still taste that ear wax-tasting soda. But I'll tell you about that later. I recommend Six Flags Over Georgia for anyone with or without kids. Gotta go, my cartoons are on. What? They are!
Ooh, the lines were very long, I waited in roller coaster lines for maybe 40 minutes each. Hot weather equals crowds.
[Don't get me started on the water ride I went on. I was the only one on the whole ride to get SOAKED because the other people knew where to sit. How was I to know that we were going under a WATERFALL? I couldn't breath for a sec while under it, and it's a good thing I brought a change of clothes and stored them in the cheap lockers they have. Yes, I know, I'm a "jean-yus."]

The park is divided into different sections, each with their own theme. One of the top rides is Superman, which you ride facing the ground, as if you were actually flying. The Great American Scream Machine is their classic wooden roller coaster and something you must ride. As one of the parks oldest rides, it remains one of the parks greatest thrills. The Great Gasp is a parachute ride that takes you up above the park and then drops you down slowly to the ground. This is a good alternative if you do not like the faster drop rides, as this is tamer. Now, if you like to be taken up and dropped to the ground with no mercy whatsoever, you need to head for the classic Freefall and the newer Acrophobia. If those don't do it for ya, skydiving should be your next hobby. The other coasters are The Mind Bender, with has two loops; the Georgia Scorcher, a standing-up roller coaster (get in the front for the ultimate ride); Batman the Ride, which is floorless, with your feet dangling beneath you; The Georgia Cyclone, Six Flags’ second wooden roller coaster, The Ninja, a metal, twisting, multi-looping, head-banging coaster; and Déjà vu, the coaster that shoots you out like a rocket - then you do the same track backwards.
Thunder River is still one of my favorite rides at the park. You load onto an eight-person round raft and go for a wild water ride down a river. It is great, and you WILL get wet. To help with the long lines, Six Flags has FastLane, where you reserve a time to ride a popular ride, go do something else, and then come back at that reserved time and hop right on.
To rest your tired feet a bit, use the sky buckets or the train to get from one side of the park to the other. The shows at Six Flags are really worth catching. They are really good, and you are missing out by not seeing them. Also, take time to stop and try to win your sweetie one of those huge stuffed animals. There is no shortage of different games to try your luck at. Tons of food stations keep you going, from burgers to funnel cakes. Also throughout the park are all the Looney Toon characters. Bugs Bunny, Yosemite Sam, Daffy Duck, and the whole gang can pop up anywhere, so keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready.
