Six Flags Over Georgia has announced that Georgia Surfer is the winning name of the new coaster opening up this summer. Georgia Surfer will be a first-of-its-kind, industry-revolutionizing attraction featuring the ultimate combination of a roller coaster and a water ride, according to Six Flags.

During their inaugural Coaster Fest event last summer, Six Flags Over Georgia announced the new surf coaster coming to the park and opened up the naming of the attraction to fans. Over 2,500 name suggestions were submitted and over 27,000 votes were cast for the top name.

“We’d like to thank our fans for the overwhelming response to our coaster announcement and naming campaign,” said Operations Director, Spencer Lucas.

Georgia Surfer promises ultra-power, high capacity and unpredictable airtime – the ultimate theme park surf experience. The new construction will take place in the former Splashwater Falls area, neighboring Thunder River and Pandemonium.

Get ready to buckle up for this one! Georgia Surfer is bringing a totally new coaster experience to the park. Thrill seekers are going to love it!

On the Georgia Surfer, riders will launch forward and backward along nearly 590 feet of track, reaching speeds of up to 60 miles per hour, hitting the ride’s 144-foot peak before coasting down into a scenic splash pool. And get this…free-spinning seats ensure no two rides are alike.

Here are some more Georgia Surfer facts…

  • Alternative Vehicle Design. You’ll strap into one of the most unique ride vehicles ever seen on a coaster, featuring free-spinning seats in two outward-facing circles atop a massive board that travels the course.
  • Weightlessness and Airtime Experiences. Packed with weightlessness and airtime experiences, Georgia Surfer features three weightless airtime moments and four different airtime spins.
  • Interactive Water Features. Passengers will soar forward and backward experiencing four water interaction effects, including a water vortex tunnel creating a captivating water curtain, and a vertical wave wall and low-cutting splash combination creating a refreshing experience for both riders and spectators.

    While this coaster features refreshing splash moments, during the cooler months water elements can be disabled, allowing for year-long thrills.

Six Flags Over Georgia will open for the 2024 season on March 2. Georgia Surfer, opening this summer, will bring the park’s total coaster count to thirteen.
