Just west of Atlanta lies Six Flags Over Georgia, a nearly sixty-year-old theme park with all the legendary thrill rides of its younger "sister" parks. Ninja flings riders through 180-degree turns and spirals while the Georgia Cyclone packs all the ups, downs, twists and turns you'd expect on a classic-style wooden roller coaster. For younger riders, the Sky Buckets offer a relaxing aerial view of the park, while the Wile E. Coyote Canyon Blaster is a roller coaster everybody can enjoy.
The appropriately-titled Acrophobia takes any fear of heights and destroys them with a 200-foot drop. Goliath is an awe-inspiring "hypercoaster" that boasts high-speed twists and turns, and a 70 mph, 20-story drop. The classic flumes of the Log Jamboree will have riders of all ages smiling and soaking wet.
