Six Flags Atlanta Properties Announce 2013 Additions

Austell, GA, USA (Aug. 30, 2012) /PRNewswire/ -- Six Flags Atlanta Properties today announced two new thrill rides that will debut at Six Flags Over Georgia and Six Flags White Water in 2013.

SkyScreamer, an extreme swing ride, will spin guests in a 98-foot circle at speeds of 40 miles per hour atop a 24-story tower. Thirty-two guests board the ride and sit two across in open-air swings as they climb to the top of the tower while spinning round and round, high above the ground below. SkyScreamer will be the tallest attraction in the park's 45-year history, 4-stories taller than the park's mega coaster, Goliath.

At Six Flags White Water, Typhoon Twister will make landfall next summer as it sends riders barreling down an enclosed five-story drop before shooting out into a 67-foot bowl. Riders in four-passenger tubes will experience several revolutions against the wall of the bowl, spin down into the corkscrew drop chute and splash into the pool below. Typhoon Twister will be the first of its kind in the state.

"We are beyond excited to debut these new thrilling attractions at our parks next year," said Melinda Ashcraft, park president, Six Flags Atlanta Properties. "SkyScreamer will take thrills to new heights at Six Flags Over Georgia and Typhoon Twister is sure to make a splash at Six Flags White Water. The 2013 season will be another exciting year for our parks as we continue to provide innovative rides, shows and attractions for our guests."

Both attractions are set to debut in late Spring, 2013.
