Six Flags has a history of bringing innovation to the park guests; this year is no different. Six Flags Over Georgia celebrates its 50th anniversary with a fun-filled, highly-interactive attraction that is perfect for guests of all ages. As the park reflects on its rich history, it also opens a brand-new chapter that is certain to bring smiles to the faces of guests for many years to come. Six Flags Over Georgia debuted its Justice League: Battle For Metropolis 4D interactive dark ride to media and VIP guests on Thursday, May 11, 2017, and plans to offer season passholders and other guests a sneak peek at this innovative attraction before it opens to the general public on May 26, 2017, during Memorial Day weekend.
Not Your Average Ride Attraction!
Contained in a brand-new 22,000 square foot [state-of-the-art] building, this indoor dark ride is not just your average attraction; instead, it brings interactivity to the masses in a ride attraction that is certain to be popular with park guests this summer. As Six Flags Over Georgia Communications Manager, Gene Petriello, points out, the Battle for Metropolis is a “high thrill, full-immersive, high-action 4D ride!” Over the course of eleven interactive scenes, the 4D attraction packs quite the punch – integrating wind, fire, fog, and gas alongside some of comic’s biggest super heroes and super villains. Up to six guests load on one of the ride attraction’s seven ride vehicles in the quest to battle Lex Luthor, The Joker, and his henchmen in an effort to save the Justice League and return order to the city of Metropolis. To accomplish this feat, guests will be battling these villains while shooting at over 600 targets.
Perfect Break From The Heat!
“Atlanta folks will be hot this summer, and we’re going to give them a place to cool off,” says Sally Corporation’s Marketing Director, Lauren Wood Weaver. “It’s going to be a nice break from the heat.” She notes that this ride is essentially weather-proof; barring a power outage or similar situation, this attraction will be available to guests – rain or shine! This ride reliability, both in terms of uptime and enjoyability for guests, is one of its finest features!
Ride Again and Again!
With the storyline and so many targets to take aim at [and some enjoyable air-conditioning that’s perfect for those hot days in Atlanta], the Battle for Metropolis ride experience has so much to offer that riders will want to ride again and again. Guests will notice new things during each ride, and the hunt for some hidden Easter Eggs will surely motivate the guests to re-ride all day long. Lauren Wood Weaver exclaims, “you want to ride again; either you want to beat your own score, or you want to beat the guy who beat you last time, or keep raising those points.”
Added Value For Everybody!
With this attraction being perfect for all guests, it makes going to the park even more enjoyable. If past park guests were debating on whether to buy a Six Flags season pass, the addition of this new, state-of-the-art dark ride becomes the “tipping point.” Guests will most certainly want to invest in a pass and enjoy this new attraction and surrounding area of the park over and over again!
2017 will be a year to remember, filled with many great memories at Six Flags Over Georgia. “There’s no better way to celebrate the park’s 50th anniversary season than the unveiling of the most innovative and multi-faceted attraction the park has ever built,” said Six Flags Atlanta Properties Park President Dale Kaetzel. If you’re in the Atlanta area, you’ll definitely want to come out and experience this great attraction for yourself; you won’t be disappointed!
