Sky Screamer Media Day - SFOG - 2013

Back in may, I was able to attend the media day event for Six Flags Over Georgia's introduction of the Sky Screamer.  The ride is certainly thrilling, I would say the re-ridability is great for thrill-seekers, but many people may not venture up 240 feet.  

The ride itself is not entirely forceful, but I do like the fact that it descends at full speed to "half-mast" to swing near the tree-tops, and ascends for the final spin at maximum altitude.  If you live near Atlanta, be sure to check-out Six Flags Over Georgia.  It's definitely one of the best in the chain.

Care for an on-ride POV video?
