Local promotion turns into gridlock at SFOG
Written by Ed Newman
This occurred on Thursday morning, April 5th. A radio station promotion for free tickets at Six Flags Over Georgia led the park to close its gates after heavy traffic, which started building at 3:30 am, shut down Interstate 20.Tweet
This week is Spring Break week for most metro Atlanta school systems (Six Flags is open daily this week). Not sure who is more to blame, SFOG or the local radio station which sponsored the promotion.
