Six Flags Over Georgia
Located near Atlanta, this park opened on June 7, 1967 with two roller coasters. Two years later, the land's ownership was passed to a limited partnership, Six Flags Over Georgia, LP, while Six Flags Theme Parks (SFTP) became responsible for the park's operation. After being controlled by several corporate entities, SFTP was finally purchased by Time-Warner, Inc. Feeling that their interests were being ignored by SFTP, the LP sued Time-Warner in 1997 for neglecting the property. The LP was awarded the staggering sum of $197 million in compensatory damages and $257 million in punitive damages.
While the park added a new kiddie coaster from Chance Rides in 2004, and added a new B&M coaster for 2005 (see below), four coasters have been removed from the park:
Batman The Ride
Dahlonega Mine Train
Superman - Ultimate Flight
Wile E. Coyote Canyon Blaster
