I use to go to Six Flags often in high school (mid-90s) and worked their in '96. My best memory was when they would shut down the Park and let the employees have full run of the park. No lines so you got to ride everything as often as you would want. I also remember Physics Day at Six Flags, when just students were allowed. Those were fun filled days of short lines, lunch provided by the schools and so many girls from the other schools in Atlanta. Some of my favorite days in school.

I haven't been since I quit working there (I was one of the persons taking your picture on the Georgia Cyclone and trying to sell it to you on souvenir key chains and mugs). At the time, we had to watch on a TV screen, wait for the front of the coaster to come into view and hold down a button so the camera would take your picture. I'm sure it's all automated now. The job was pretty easy and fun (primarily because I was in an air-conditioning shack and not sell concessions at the little carts, or loading people on to coasters), paid well and I got to meet a lot of girls (you can tell what I was focused on in school) and quite a few celebs.

The one thing I will never do now is ride the Scream Machine only because I know how often it use to breakdown and even caught on fire a couple of times. Maybe they've fixed that now, but I'm not sure.

I've always liked the Six Flags in NJ, so if the Georgia one is better, I might check it out this summer.

Atlanta, discover Georgia. Try Wild Adventures in Valsosta, Georgia. Yes, there is a Georgia outside of Atlanta and its snarled traffic. WA owner is headquartered right in Georgia, the Georgia you know, Atlanta. WA admission is less than $50 includes a water park, and is sister park to Dollywood in Tennessee. Valsosta is right on I-75 half way between ATL and Mickey Mouse. I
I worked at SFOG at the log flume and Okeefenokee in 1974 and 1977.
