The best time to go is during the week as it seems to be less crowded.

Bring your own food, get stamped and go to the car and eat. Be prepared to wait extremely long, so go early in the mornings if you wand to even stand a chance at riding all the rides.

Tips for Families

Here are tips I've put together for a great day. 1. Arrive Early. This is true for ANY amusement park. Most people run late, so although they may try to get to the park when it opens, fewer people do. Add in time to park and walk to the entrance and you’ll find that the crowds are lightest at opening. At Six Flags you can pay a premium to park near the entrance ($15 – $20), but if you’re looking for bargain parking ($5), you’ll have to walk a bit, so figure time in for parking and walking to the entrance. Remember, you want to be ready to walk into the park at opening, which means your tickets are purchased, bathroom breaks are finished and sunscreen is on. 2. Be there 30 minutes before opening. The operator I talked to mentioned that often the park will open the main gate 30 minutes prior to the scheduled opening of the park. It helps to thin the crowds at the gate. Generally, they’ll have the Georgia Cyclone and Georgia Scorcher open early as well. This is a great time to hit these rides and likely ride again and again. 3. Head to the Back of the Park. Most people meander to the right when they tour an amusement park. Those in the know may head straight to the large roller coasters like Goliath. Those with the inside scoop head to the back of the park and work their way to the front. If you’re a roller coaster fan, go to Superman first. You’ll have covered three of the 11 roller coasters (probably multiple times) within the first half hour of the park opening! 4. Go Mid-Week or Shoulder Season. Mid-week is the least crowded time to visit Six Flags Over Georgia. If you must come on the weekend, Sunday is a better day than Saturday. Shoulder Season, April, May, Sept. and Oct. aren’t as crowded either. 5. Visit Water Rides in the Morning. Thunder River has a long line in the afternoon once folks get hot and are looking to cool off. Visit Thunder River in the morning and you’ll avoid the longest lines. Skull Island, Six Flags Over Georgia’s Water Park has a similar traffic pattern. Folks generally wait until the afternoon to get wet, so visiting this attraction in the morning is a best bet. 6. Map Out Your Day. The best way to avoid lines is to map out the day prior to your visit, you can get a map online before your trip. Know before you get off one ride, where you’re going next. Get a show schedule before heading out and determine what shows you want to see and when. Inside venues are great for mid-day when it’s hot and you need a break. 7. Eat at Off-Times. To avoid long lines at the concessions, and to enjoy the shorter lunch time ride lines, plan to eat a bit early or late. Either eat no later than 11:30 or after 2 pm. You’ll skip the food lines and enjoy slightly shorter ride lines during peak dining hours. 8. Good Eats. Daddy O’s BBQ was a favorite of several folks surveyed. Daddy O’s is located near the Dare Devil Dive rollercoaster. The Lickskillet Section of the park is food court type set up. If you have lots of different tastes, this may be the best place for variety.

okay my followers, you all know that i am originally from pittsburgh, so im used to Kennywood, and ever since i moved here to atlanta 11 years ago i've had to make that transition to six flags. definately check out Lauren A. and Jamarcus T.'s answers, they pretty much hit the nail on the head. But I do have some extra feedback if you guys are interested =) whew, now okay, this is my personal review of the park and some helpful tips. 1.This is a must, ALWAYS come early. and when i mean early, i mean before noon. u can get a really good parking spot. there is free parking and there is paid parking. the paid parking is the lot directly right next to the park, the free parking is the lot down on the other end. i...

I came hear recently on whim. It was a cooler than usual summer afternoon. I've lived in GA my whole life and did the whole six flags things enough as a kid to be "over it" but I figured what the heck, I haven't been there in a few years. 1. Price - The season pass rate is good, but all the single day pass prices totally suck for the value. $39.99 for kids? Geeze. We tried to buy tickets online for "kids price" which is the current special, but the website had issues with the pop up functionality. We said something to guest services upon arrival and they honored the price so I guess that was cool... if you think $40 is a good deal... 2. Rides - I can classify this park into two types of coasters. They are "s...

Let me say right off the bat that my score is biased by the fact that I came here for a private event hosted by my Company. The park was closed to everyone but employees + family / friends. As a result, we didn't have to pay admission (or parking) and barely had to wait in lines for anything. As a result, I'm reviewing the park solely on the basis of the rides. With that in mind, I have to say that we all had a great time - there are plenty of different rides, and each one feels unique. I never felt tat I was rehashing the same experience over and over again. All in all, with (maybe) one exception, I had a blast on all of the rides. Of note, the best ride was (hands-down) the Superman ride. Being in a face-d...

We went on a business trip to Atlanta, GA. This is great family amusement park. Great rides, great shows and lots to do. Unfortunately, its too crowded and you cannot ride everything due to overcrowding. But the overall feeling I had when going there is great satisf...

Until recently, I had not been here in 10+ years.  If you're expecting Disney, you're outta your mind.  Six Flags is good for one thing only... roller coasters.  They have 11 of them, if you count the one in the kids area.  Some are better than others (Superman and Goliath are a must), but they all have character.  If you don't have time to ride them all, skip over Dahlonega Mine Train.   I remember more theme as a kid, but any sign of a theme at Six Flags has since been "Tooned" down to a minimum.  I saw costumed characters once all day and there is absolutely no in-line entertainment while you wait.   Employees are young and speak a dialect of English that I could not understand.  I really hope they know w...
