Six Flags will uphold bet with Alabama water park after UGA loss

Well, it happened. Alabama bested Georgia in the national college football championship.

Aside from Nick Saban slipping another ring on his hand, the loss means Six Flags Over Georgia will uphold its bet with an Alabama water park.

Six Flags in Austell, will rename the “Scorcher” rollercoaster to the “Alabama Scorcher” for its opening weekend, March 10 and 11.

The park confirmed the worst (with sass) on Twitter after someone tweeted out what looks like some low-grade Microsoft Paint work depicting the Bama logo on the rollercoaster sign.

Six Flags also said some staff will even wear “Roll Tide” shirts those days.


If UGA had been victorious, Alabama Splash Adventure would have renamed its “Rampage” rollercoaster to the “Georgia Rampage” for opening weekend.

The Cobb County amusement park made good on a similar deal with a Six Flags in Boston when the Falcons unceremoniously lost the Super Bowl.
