Six Flags Over Georgia recently opened their newest addition, Sky Screamer. Being built to a height of 242 feet, Sky Screamer is a Star Flyer thrill ride made by Funtime. A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to ride Sky Screamer at the media day event. The day consisted of park president, Dale Kaetzel, giving opening words on the ride, several rides on Sky Screamer, and 32 park employees dressed as pigs ride Sky Screamer going after the saying “when pigs fly.”
Last year, Six Flags announced that they would be replacing the Wheelie (an enterprise thrill ride) at the back of the park next to the pond that the Ninja resides over. And I must say, it serves as a great upgrade to that section of the park. There were concerns about the 200 foot construction height limit that is set over SFOG and Sky Screamer is 242 feet. Dale Kaetzel was able to give reasons as to why this was possible when I interviewed him that day.
Check out my full SkyScreamer review to get my entire opinion on Sky Screamer and an on-ride POV!
