Six Flags is nearing its annual announcement, so it will not be long until we all find out what the park will bring to park for guests to enjoy in 2018. While Six Flags Over Georgia offers a lot to guests, there are some things that the park is missing or in dire need of. Here are five attractions or amenities that they should consider adding.
This seems to be a trend at all Six Flags parks, but the lack of complimentary wireless Internet connectivity is a bit frustrating. The Six Flags app is fun to use, but some people struggle to get a solid signal at the park. Others just do not want to use their data. Why not just add Wi-Fi to the park and give it away for free? In fact, the park could use it as a way to promote its app and season pass; maybe, they could add Wi-Fi and make it an exclusive perk for season passholders.
Phone Charging Stations
Guests are constantly running low on battery power, especially if they have been in the park all day. Why not just add some phone charging areas or even upgrade the lockers in the park to allow for free phone charging? By doing that, the park can improve the odds that guests will share a photo on their social media channels, thereby increasing their online brand exposure. It is a win-win for everybody!
Can a park ever have too many roller coasters? NAH! In fact, with the recent announcement that Georgia Cyclone will not be open anymore after July 30, 2017, Six Flags Over Georgia could definitely use a brand-new roller coaster! Rumors and speculation continues to increase because of this announced ride closure; many in the coaster community believe a Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) project is on the horizon! Coaster enthusiasts like us need a new credit to add to our tallies, and a big new attraction is great for getting new guests to check out everything this park has to offer.
Big Dining Facility
Lines at the food establishments at Six Flags Over Georgia can get long. Adding more dining capacity would help out a lot, especially during peak hours. Of course, this would also improve their odds of increasing their sale of the all-season dining passes. A regional competitor that is around 4 hours away, Carowinds, has a big dining facility that offers great flexibility to that park. It lets them showcase some entertainment, hold press conferences, host groups, and feed a lot of people all at once. A similar dining facility at Six Flags Over Georgia would really allow for added flexibility and capacity, something extremely useful during the peak season!
Lazy River at Hurricane Harbor
Six Flags Over Georgia added its Hurricane Harbor waterpark area back in 2014. When opened, it had a wave pool and various tube slides. Now, the area could use some additional attractions. One missing attraction that would be a great, fun addition would be a lazy river. It would allow more guests to enjoy the area. The added capacity would allow guests to have more things to do, and who doesn’t love a lazy river? Of course, if they could find a way to make the lazy river unique (i.e. add theming or make the river more adventurous), that would really encourage more people to check it out along with the surrounding area.
How many of these needs will Six Flags Over Georgia add to its park for 2018? It is hard to know just yet. Be sure to keep an eye out for teasers from the park and an announcement at the end of August.
