Six Flags Over Georgia, a 230-acre park west of Atlanta, opened in 1967. It's the second park in the Six Flags chain, the original opening in Texas in 1950. SFOG has two sister parks, Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags St. Louis. These three theme parks were founded by Angus G. Wynne and are the only parks in the Six Flags Theme Parks chain to have used the "Six Flags" name since their original openings.
SFOG has a large number of rides and attractions and has a wonderful collection of roller coasters. When the Goliath opened on April 1, 2006 the park became only the third amusement park to operate four coasters from Bolliger & Mabillard. Two other popular attractions that makes the park so spectacular are Acrophobia, which was the world's first "floorless" freefall tower ride and the Riverview Carousel, which is one of only three remaining five-abreast carousels to exist and is a member of the National Register of Historic Places.
This wonderful park is a "must-see" for anyone visiting the Atlanta area and is only a quick six-hour trip from the Orlando area.
