Yesterday Six Flags Over Georgia announced that their classic wooden coaster, The Great American Scream Machine, will run backwards as of March 10.  It will be a limited run.  A national landmark, the coaster previously ran backwards in 1992.   Now that I’ve seen the latest video, I must say that this looks totally insane!  I’ve ridden an invert backwards – no sweat! – but riding an old woodie backwards is a different story altogether.

What’s your take? Would this be a fun ride?

About The Author

Hi! I took up roller coasters late in life, 8 years ago at the age of 59 and am trying to make up for lost time. Most of my favorite coasters were made by Intamin and lately, Rocky Mountain Construction. I love Hersheypark not only because it's the sweetest place on earth but because the three major coasters are Intamins. In real life I work in the legal profession.
