Six Flags park orders Intamin surf coaster for 2024

August 19, 2023, 4:30 PM · Six Flags Over Georgia will open an Intamin Ultra Surf coaster next year, the park announced today.

The as-yet-unnamed shuttle coaster features a 590-foot, U-shaped track with a peak of 144 feet and a top speed of 60 mph. The surfboard-shaped trains hold two spinning circular platforms, each with 10 outward-facing seats.

In between the ride's two spikes, riders will launch backward and forward through a splash zone and airtime hill.

Eh, its an interesting gimmick on a disc coaster. Not enough to make me want to go somewhere I wasn't going already though.

The rumor is that SF was really frustrated with Mack’s handling of Aquaman at SFoT, and with its smaller footprint, this Intamin design might start popping up around the chain if successful. I rode Avatar at Mall of America a few years ago, and it was decent. However, I’m not sure how that will work with a splashdown track.

i'm happy to see some new water rides hitting the parks since so many have removed older log flumes and chute the shoots...i just hope they add a turntable to it or this will be wait time disaster.

I'd love to be proven wrong, but based on my experience with Intamin's Surfrider model, this looks pretty meh to me. I actually quite enjoyed Aquaman at SFOT and was hoping SFOG would be getting a clone, but it looks like they opted for a questionable prototype instead. This model adds spinning and removes the splash (it's not clear from the graphic, but Intamin's website makes it apparent the water effects are scenery rather than a true splashdown), so it's not quite the same, but the two definitely share similarities in layout and ride experience. I've been planning to get back to Georgia next year anyway to ride ArieForce One, so it's entirely possible I'll get a chance to try this, but if not it isn't something I'd be too disappointed about missing.
