12 Rides and Attractions within Two New Themed Areas at Six Flags Over Georgia

Thrilling family fun is in the works, as Six Flags Over Georgia today announced the all-new DC SUPER FRIENDS themed area and the all-new BugsBunny Boomtown for the 2016 season. The two new areas will feature 12 rides and attractions, in what will become the perfect family destination spot within the Thrill Capital of theSouth.
“These two new sections of the park will offer families hours and hours of fun with attractions
mom, dad and the kids can experience together,” said Park President Dale Kaetzel. “This latest
expansion continues our multi-year plan to provide thrills for guests of all ages and includes the
addition of Hurricane Harbor in 2014, two new devious rides in Gotham City in 2015 and other
additions planned for the future.”

The original Dolphin Show area, which has remained at the park since the 1990’s, will be
transformed into the epicenter for the all-new DC Super Friends kids’ area and will feature 5
new attractions, including:

  • Superman Tower of Power, which releases the dare devil in the bravest of souls
    throughout this 65-foot tall bouncing thrill ride;
  •  The Batcopters, an opportunity to help save the City of Gotham by flying high in the
    sky;
  • Wonder Woman Flight School, where pilots can take flight and control their own
    invisible jet;
  • Harley Quinn Mirror Maze, filled with disproportioned mirrors and devious stares; and
  • The Joker Funhouse Coaster, the ultimate family thrill ride to show no fear and
    conquer the Super-Villain through 900 feet of track at 30 miles per hour.

The park’s current children’s area, Bugs Bunny World, will be re-themed to Bugs Bunny
Boomtown and feature seven attractions, including:

  •  Daffy Ducks Bucket Blasters, a wild and crazy family water battle;
  •  Speedy Gonzales Speed Boats, where guests will be screaming “Andale Andale” on
    six speed boats;
  •  Bugs Bunny High Sea Adventure, a chance to fly through the air on a junior seaworthy
    quest;
  •  Yosemite Sam’s Wacky Wagons, an old western spin on a junior ferris wheel perfect
    for junior cowpokes;
  •  Looney Tunes Adventure Camp, an interactive playground with Bugs Bunny and all
    the Looney Tunes characters;
  •  Acme Trucking Company, a monster truck driving voyage to help Wile E. Coyote try to
    capture the Road Runner; and
  •  Tweety’s Tweehouse, a 20-foot up and down journey into the little chirping bird’s nest.

Bugs Bunny Boomtown is scheduled to open for the 2016 season in early spring and the DC
Super Friends themed area is scheduled to open Memorial Day weekend.

Six Flags Great Adventure unveils a second thrilling roller coaster experience for 2015 as it flips one of its most innovative and adrenaline-charged coasters, BATMAN™:The Ride,  backwards for a limited time beginning July 4th weekend. The world’s largest theme park also teams up with Coca-Cola® to celebrate Independence Day with July 4th Fest from July 3 to 5. Guests can enjoy some of the best thrill rides in the world, listen to live music and watch dazzling fireworks displays.

BATMAN™: The Ride becomes even more intense as it undergoes a gravity-defying role reversal from July 4th weekend to Labor Day weekend. Guests can take on an all-new experience on the world-famous suspended, looping coaster when its chair lift-style train is flipped 180 degrees on the track. The excitement is magnified since guests cannot see the twists and turns that await them as they soar at speeds up to 50 mph through five gut-wrenching inversions. Since opening in 1993, BATMAN™: The Ride has given more than 27 million thrilling rides and reigns as one of the most popular roller coasters in the world.
