Six Flags Over Georgia is located close to Atlanta, and features a line-up that (typically for a Six Flags park) is heavy on intense roller coasters. Among the 290-acre park's biggest draws are Superman: Ultimate Flight (a B&M flying coaster), Goliath (another B&M creation, this time a hypercoaster) and Dare Devil Dive (a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter coaster). The majority of the park's tamer, family-friendly rides are packed into the Bugs Bunny Boomtown and DC Super Friends areas, while the Hurricane Harbor water park is included with park admission.
The second park to open in the Six Flags chain, Six Flags Over Georgia made its public debut in 1967. It was modelled closely on the first park, Six Flags Over Texas, borrowing the central concept of celebrating the different flags that have flown over Georgia during its history. It also adopted the same ownership model, and is actually owned by a 100-plus-strong group of limited partners, and operated on their behalf by Six Flags. As with other Six Flags parks, it has reduced the emphasis on its original theme over the years in favor of steel roller coasters and off-the-shelf midway rides. A major expansion program kicked off in 2014 with the debut of the Hurricane Harbor water park, and in 2016 Bugs Bunny World was rethemed and expanded into the Bugs Bunny Boomtown and DC Super Friends areas.
