Following on from the success of the original Six Flags park in Texas, Six Flags Over Georgia opened as the second theme park in the chain in 1967, with rides including the Six Flags Railroad and Dahlonega Mine Train which still exist today.
Over the years, they have been joined by many other attractions. Mind Bender, a steel looping coaster designed by Anton Schwarzkopf, has been recognised as a Rollercoaster Landmark by the American Coaster Enthusiasts.
Sadly, the park today doesn't feel like one of the more loved parks in the Six Flags chain. It seems a bit worn out, and generally under invested in. Some of the rollercoasters are rough enough to be unrideable. The atmosphere on the park feels a little more gritty than you might want at a theme park too. However, things might be looking up as the park's Georgia Cyclone wooden rollercoaster is getting an upgrade courtesy of RMC for the 2018 season.
