A B&M stand-up coaster, the Georgia Scorcher is 107 feet tall, has a track length of 3000 feet, and a top speed of 54 mph. Riders experience a loop, a corkscrew, and numerous twists and turns.


I'm not a huge fan of stand-ups, but I really like the Scorcher. It has a good layout, and it doesn't give me calf cramps like Mantis at CP.
Scorcher is one of the better standers around because it's one of the last ones made. It's a lot better than take, Vortex at Carowinds or Iron Wolf/Apocalypse. As long as you know to have more than 5 inches of space between yourself and the bike seat you won't feel any pain at all on your, you know so there's no need to say.
I really really like this ride because of how it just flings you on its sharp turns. The best part of the ride is The sidways swinging curve into the corkscrew where the outside seat gets flicked up causing air time(as seen in pic). One of my favorites, especially for its small height.
I think this is a real nice coaster. Not a first tier coaster or something to 'anchor' a park's coaster lineup, not particularly big or scary, but a lot of fun. Smooth and comfy for a standup. The sort of ride you could go on several times in a row if lines are thin or better rides have long waits. Similar to but less intense than Great Adventure's Green Lantern (formerly "Chang" at Six Flags in Kentucky). A must if you find yourself in SFOG.
i love this ride Its Good Kinda Smooth Guys Watch Out This Will Hurt You It Hurt Me!
My fave stand up coaster. I luv luv luv this ride. While it's a bit short, it's still really great. Nonstop action.
This ride is gradually getting rougher. It's still fun, and will still be fun for another 10 or so years, but that will likely be the limit.
great standup rollercoaster
