While this may upset some fans, usually when Six Flags closes a wooden coaster, it’s rebuilt by Rocky Mountain Coasters into a Steel/Wood hybrid. It definitely looks like the case here, as Six Flags Over Georgia is one of the last parks in the Six Flags chain to get a Rocky Mountain makeover. The question now becomes what insane maneuvers will the new coaster have?
The coaster opened in 1990 and was built by the Dinn Corporation. Over the years the coaster has not aged well, being one of the roughest roller coasters ever.
Six Flags will likely name the replacement in early September, when they make their annual announcements for the coming year.
