iLuminate Lights Up Six Flags Over Georgia

Austell, GA, USA (May 24, 2012) /PRNewswire/ -- Six Flags Over Georgia announced today that iLuminate , the dance-in-the-dark show that placed third on last summer's hit television competition series "America's Got Talent," will perform live at the park May 26 through August 12, 2012.

The show will combine state-of-the-art light up costumes with 12 electrifying entertainers who perform in the dark to create the ultimate performing arts experience.

"iLuminate at Six Flags Over Georgia will offer our guests an incredible show to enjoy in addition to our world-class lineup of rides and attractions," said Melinda Ashcraft, park president. "The high-energy music, advanced choreography and innovative costumes are going to make this a must-see for anyone who visits."

The concept for iLuminate emerged while Miral Kotb, owner and creator of the ground-breaking technology, was developing mobile phone applications. She had a vision of dancers wearing costumes that illuminated wirelessly to compliment the music and choreography—wireless technology that could be controlled from the palm of one's hand.

"We are thrilled about this incredible opportunity that catapults iLuminate into the theme park venue," stated Kotb. "Six Flags is the perfect showcase for our performances, and we are looking forward to the debut of this imaginative new show for audiences of all ages."

In addition to iLuminate, Six Flags Over Georgia will debut Pop 40 , a musical showcase of hits from the 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s and Rhythm & Grooves , an R&B music show that pays tribute to legends likeRay Charles, Stevie Wonder, Tina Turner, and Aretha Franklin. Both shows will run May 26 through August 12.
