Six Flags over Georgia- New Coaster for 2011

Six Flags Over Georgia: Anybody have details of what and where the new coaster at SFOG will be? Although a big fan of coasters, I am not sure this is what the park needs at this time. I am thinking the area where Freefall was is open for a new attraction.

I tried starting a thread about this last week when the press release came out, but I kept timing out. Anyways:

Here's the official word

It does seem like the coaster will be located in the area where the Drive-in Theatre and Fearfall used to be. Also, the picture should be taken with a grain of salt - I don't think they were really ready for this announcement (when the press release first came out, it bragged that this would be the first coaster with a beyond vertical drop. I guess there was no time to fact check).

I really hope they keep some effort to keep a theme in the area. Also, I heard Shake, Rattle , and Roll is closing down. I don't know if this is temporary to move the exit or if they will knock it out for more room for this coaster. HOpefully they will just move the entrance so it comes out into that arcade or something like that. You can see great views of the constructions site from the train and the mindbender line and ride. Also, did any of you guys see the new lickskillet section? After the flood they completely redid the facades.

I've heard Shake Rattle and Roll is safe. The park has way too few flats to justify getting rid of any.

The coaster looks like a cheap, unthemed version of Mystery Mine.

With all the cut backs and changes going on at Six Flags these days, can we expect anything more than an unthemed copycat?

Should we pull out the old cliche and say, "At least, it is better than nothing?"

it's better than a tony hawk coaster. Also, it's going to be longer, faster, and have more inversions than mystery mine. However, unless it gets some decent theming, Mystery Mine will conquer it by a mile. So this coaster will be a great addition to SFOG's lineup of coasters and not just a copy of dollywoods's.

I just looked on SFOG's website. It says the ride will be called Dare Devil Dive, and its going to be made by Gerstlauer. More stats are on the website.

The rumor I heard is that it is supposed to be a dive coaster. That's nothing new where I live...Griffon has been open and running at Busch Gardens Europe (near where I live) for 3 years now and is an awesome ride. If that is what it's going to be, you'll love it.

Huh. I was trying to figure out why it seemed like no one was looking at the link I posted, then I realized that SFOG changed the dang link. Same as what I posted, but without the "e" at the end now...
