Six Flags Over Georgia has been a fixture in the Peach State for decades. Guests flock to the park to ride thrilling roller coasters, free-falling thrillers, nostalgic favorites and more tame kids rides. A waterpark with slides and cooling playground for hot summer days is also part of the extensive activities at Six Flags. Located in Austell just west of Atlanta, it’s an accessible amusement destination from most parts of the state.

With zero reported cases of COVID-19 among park employees, Six Flags Over Georgia has made the responsible decision to stay closed until the threat has passed. As of now, it’s looking like gates will reopen in May. Passes and tickets have been given generous extensions and perks due to the set back that all of us in the U.S. are feeling right now.

Six Flags Donations

Like many major attractions, a lot of food was already purchased before the decision to shut down was made. And Six Flags is stepping up, like many other establishments, to ensure the food goes to the very best causes possible. Around 1,600 pounds of food has been given to The Center for Children & Young Adults in Marietta, Georgia. The park has worked with the organization before, in 2019. High-risk homeless children are given access to safe and sufficient housing, along with critical development activities, and receiving 114 boxes of dairy, fresh fruit and vegetables was undoubtedly an exciting moment for the center.

This quote was gathered from the website and speaks volumes about the park. “Six Flags Over Georgia and White Water are committed to serving our community through this unprecedented situation,” said Park President, Dale Kaetzel. “We are grateful for the partnership with The Center for Children & Young Adults and look forward to providing those living at the center with this nutritious food in a time of uncertainty.”
