Six Flags Over Georgia entrance

Six Flags Over Georgia is set to open this weekend, despite large areas of the park being submerged under flood water following heavy rain.

The incredible aerial video embedded below shows large areas of the park covered by the flood water, including much of the Scream Machine rollercoaster. However, the park expects the flooding to recede in time to open the park on Saturday.

"We've handled floods in the past, and we know how to handle this" said communications director Kendell Kelton.

Days of heavy rain in Cobb County have led to local rivers and streams overflowing, and forced sections of I-285 and I-20 to close.

Six Flags will be hoping to get the park fully up and running in time for the Fright Fest Halloween event, which begins on October 2.
