Six Flags Over Georgia reopens popular roller coaster

AUSTELL, Ga. — It’s back!

Six months after it closed, the Great American Scream Machine has reopened at Six Flags Over Georgia.

The popular roller coaster closed in November 2021 for several upgrades. Updates included a new track, new wood throughout the ride, a renovated queue house and over 400 gallons of fresh paint. Six Flags envisions the changes will offer guests a smoother ride and better experience.

The Great American Scream Machine arrived at Six Flags Over Georgia in 1973. The ride includes 3,800 feet of track with an initial climb to 105 feet. The ride lasts two minutes and reaches speeds of 57 mph.

American Coaster Enthusiasts designated the attraction as a national roller coaster landmark.

Six Flags is open daily.
