    Despite flooding, Six Flags hopes to open Georgia park this weekend

    Six Flags hopes to open this weekend | ajc.com

    Despite being in an area hit hard by this week's flooding, Six Flags over Georgia officials are hopeful the park will be able to open this weekend.

    Several rides at the theme park were partially submerged in water, but some of the water has receded, according to aerial photos. Employees at the park will continue the clean-up process this week and assess the condition of the rides and attractions, said Kendell Kelton, park spokeswoman

    "Obviously the safety of our guests is the number one priority," Kelton said Wednesday afternoon.

    Earlier Wednesday, all lanes of I-20 — which runs alongside the park — reopened, meaning park-goers will have a way to get to Six Flags.

    The entrance to the park and the ticket area was dry when an AJC reporter stopped by Wednesday. The reporter was not allowed on the park grounds.
    It's a great park and I'm glad it isn't going to have the same fate as Six Flags New Orleans (I didn't think it would). Although, I have to ask if it's too soon this weekend. Then again, it will be a nice distraction for their guests.

    Isn't this a regular occurrence? I swear that SFOG has been flooded multiple times before.
