Mom who gave birth at Six Flags reunites with paramedics, gets passes

Who knows if Baby Matthew will grow up to be a thrill-seeker, but he’ll have plenty of opportunity.

His mother got lifetime premium passes to Six Flags Over Georgia and Hurricane Harbor on Friday after unexpectedly giving birth to him at the park in June.

The woman was at the park with her daughter when she went to the first aid area and said she thought she was in labor. She gave birth before the ambulance got there.

“When it’s time to come, it’s time to come and you got to be prepared for it,” said Wendy Marlow, a medic who helped deliver the boy.

The family also got to reunite with the paramedics who helped them at the Austell theme park.

He was born July 23, but Friday was his actual due date. The mother told park officials that Matthew had doubled in weight and is healthy.

“I’m just overjoyed that he is happy, healthy,” Marlow said.

And he’s going to need all his strength one day.

The Diamond Elite Membership is the most expensive pass and is good for unlimited admission to any Six Flags location. He, his mom and his sister will also get perks like 50 percent off food and merchandise along with preferred parking.

This is the second baby born at the park in its 51 years, according to a park spokesperson.
