Six Flags Over Georgia, March 20th photo trip report
This will not be a huge trip report because my camera could only take 41 pictures before the memory died (and most of those pictures were spent on Goliath, for obvious reasons) .
Lets get started,
As you can see, it was a perfect day...
Well, I fixed the airtime hills and made them parabolic (physics for the win). Take a look,
OLD, BEFORE FIX
People have been asking why the splashdown is so large, I will tell you this, I have something special in mind for it.
I have also made...
they treated it for this sort of thing because it is built on a lake (at least most of it is). SFoG floods quite a bit, and it has stood up quite well so far. It usually doesn't take that long for the water to drain, so damage is usually kept to a minimum
How the hell did Thunderhead slip to #5?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? She has been running better this year than ever before!?!?!?!?!?
On a positive note, my fav. steel coaster Goliath (SFOG) has moved up yet again!
I have proof (enough) to prove that B&M is using the splashdown as a break of some sort, SO it does slow the train down, B&M even list water as a break for Diamondback

I love GCI woodies, Thunderhead is still my favorite coaster, and Lightning Racers is up there in my top 10. BUT Gwazi made me want to stab myself.
How I rank GCI Woodies
BEST- Comparable to Thunderhead, Lightning Racers, Renegade ect.
Middle- WildCat, Kentucky Rumbler, Roar, ect
Here are my top 5 biggest moments of airtime
1) Georgia Cyclone, I know it doesn't look like much, but it has the most extreme airtime (yes, I know it is more of ejector, but damn) of any coaster I have been on
2) Magnum XL-200, it is filled to the brim with air, I don't think my butt ever...
I agree with rollerdude, they just hit your thighs. Its not a huge deal that this ride has OTSRs, it really doesn't feel any diffrent than a T Bar or U Bar. In fact, I like the OTSR on Intamin coasters more than their T or U bars. Yes, it is probably the fact I'm 6'5" and they give me a tad bit...
