Six Flags Over Georgia’s Dare Devil is Open
Just in time for Memorial Day weekend, Six Flags Over Georgia’s Dare Devil Dive is open for business. The new Gerstlauer coaster features a beyond vertical super steep, 95-degree drop. After that riders are treated to an onslaught of loops and a pretty fun looking course. The ride features the World’s first V-shaped cars with stadium seating.
Early Reviews of Dare Devil Dive at Six Flags Over Georgia
A review on Theme Park Review, calls the ride “fun”, points out some “awesome hang time on the barrell roll”. The reviewer also remarks that he left the ride “pleasantly surprised”. However, it does sound like ride capacity may be an issue, which isn’t surprising considering Dare Devil Dive’s 6-person train cars. So, while lines are long for all new rides, lines may be ridiculously long for this one. Learn how to avoid long lines from my Best Days to Visit Theme Parks post (from 2006!). Also, read the poster’s full review of Dare Devil Dive.
His review is pretty much what I expected or hoped for in Dare Devil Dive. It doesn’t look like a potential challenger to the looping coaster throne, but it does look like a solid, maybe even stand-out new ride. I really wanted to make it down to Atlanta for Dare Devil’s media day as I’m only 4 hours away, but I couldn’t. I’m planning to visit Six Flags Over Georgia later this Summer and I’m really looking forward to experiencing a type of coaster that I’ve never encountered.
