If you grew up in Georgia, you might have gone to Six Flags Over Georgia once or twice during your childhood. You might not even recognize the park now if you visit as an adult because there have been some major changes (for the better) to the park. Six Flags Over Georgia opens this weekend and you'll be in for some surprises.
The season starts this weekend, March 7 and 8, so you can have fun all spring and summer long. If you've been missing the Six Flag funnel cakes, you can indulge in them all this weekend.
Six Flags also announced in 2019 that they were bringing two completely new rides to the park in 2020 and you can finally experience them at the grand opening.
The Gotham City part of the park is welcoming the Catwoman Whip and Poison Ivy Toxic Spin. You'll want to arrive at the park early if you want to get on these rides in a timely manner.
For those who have no fear and motion sickness isn't even in their vocabulary, you need to take a ride on the Catwoman Whip. This thing has heights reaching up to 67 feet in the air.
The ginormous wheel tilts in a verticle position and will spin thrill seekers around until you want to throw up. Kind of like a Ferris wheel, you'll be seated in an open-air contraption for that extra adrenaline rush.
The other new ride, Poison Ivy Toxic Spin, is a little less intense but is still a thrill ride. You and a friend will sit in a little pod and get spun around like the Teacups at the Magic Kingdom.
You might get some whiplash as the ride spins you counterclockwise at some pretty high speeds. You shouldn't eat your funnel cake before this, just a warning.
These two might be villains in our favorite comics, but that doesn't take away from the fact that the girl power vibes are radiating. Good job, Six Flags.

Why You Should Go: This weekend, Six Flags will open for the season and you'll get to test out the two new rides.
