Six Flags Over Georgia has released a new teaser video of the next big ride.
Here was the first one released about a week ago:
The last day to ride the Georgia Cyclone was Sunday, July 30.
The ride was extremely popular when it first opened but it has been overshadowed by more modern rides including Goliath and Superman.
“It’s time to focus on innovation and thrills,” said Gene Petriello, communications director for Six Flags Over Georgia when the closure of the Georgia Cyclone was announced. What could take the place of the ride? Petriello said, “Each year we add a new ride to the park.” Typically the park makes such announcements in late summer.
The retirement of the Georgia Cyclone leaves the park with 10 operating roller coasters.
Six Flags Over Georgia is still open but has reduced hours.
