April 14, 2012 – It’s been 6 years since we’ve been to an amusement park with great coasters; hard to believe, but true.
We fixed this by going to Six Flags Over Georgia… and riding coasters from 9:45 – 9pm. We started off with Superman, then rode it again in front seat. Next up was another wooden coaster near Superman. Goliath, then lunch (chicken tenders, fries, frozen lemonade), then Goliath again (this time in the front seat). Batman. Mindbender. Whew, time for a break – a frozen Coke Slurpee helped. As did a hand rolled soft pretzel with cinnamon and sugar, and vanilla icing for dipping. Time for more coasters – the Georgia cyclone (wooden coaster). Sky buckets; not quite a coaster, but still fun. Time for dinner (two beef bbq sandwiches and bbq potato chips (they were out of fries)) please. Ninja coaster time (historic steel, you’ll feel it – get the Advil ready). Dippin dots root beer float, yum. Enjoyed the treat by the historic carosel, they have rocking chairs and lots of shade. Time to ride the cars – line was quite interesting, cars ran into each other, broke down, and then the guys got one stuck on the track and the gals helped figure out how to move it. Then Louisa drove. It’s amazing she really does have a license, we may have been bouncing around a bit. Just a few more coasters – Batman (front), Goliath (front). And a funnel cake with powdered sugar to end the night.
Our favorite coasters were Goliath, since it has a minimal lap bar design; Batman, for the multiple rolls and corkscrews; and Superman, for the unique “flying” effect, complete with loops.
April 15, 2012 – The next morning we went for a hike in Mt. Kennesaw National Battlefield. As always, this is a very pretty, fun park to hike around. Lunch was at The Brick Store Pub, for chicken fingers (a bit dry), curry (always good), Pirogi (nice and buttery), pretzels (salt and butter!) and some beer.
