Six Flags Over Georgia

Just outside Atlanta, this popular Six Flags is full of rides, shows and plenty of amusement for all ages.

Reviewed By Tripelite

This park was very disappointing. While it has some excellent rides (e.g., Mindbender, Goliath, a Superman flying coaster) and a bizarre Monster-themed water dark ride, it is an operational disaster.

I pre-bought Platinum Flash Passes (at $95 each) and the queue to pick up my wristband was over an hour. Not amused that the device intended to help you save time in line comes with a one hour line, and the center was not close to fully staffed. Flash pass lines were mostly short, except Scream Machine, which were ridiculously long.

Wait times were wildly off - for the antique car ride, the app said 20 minutes, the sign at the ride said 15 minutes, and actual wait time was 75 minutes. For Scream Machine, wait time said 20 minutes, and the Flash Pass line was longer than that.

Ride ops in general were slow - long times in between trains on coasters. No effort was made to run at full capacity by trying to fill every seat on rides.

The best thing I can say is that some of the people working at the park were very nice and compassionate.

Marietta Square

Colorful gardens and park in Marietta. Perfect for picnic lunches in the summer.

Reviewed By Martin S - Harpenden, England, United Kingdom

The first time I visited Marietta Square was in October 2017 and it was just great! Lots of nice shops and funky restaurants. My wife and I visited again last week (March 2018) and, well, we were surprised. First, most places don't open until 10am or later. Second, they seem to have ripped out a lot of trees and are remodelling the side walk along one whole side of the square - its a big building site. Also we noticed that a few of the shops that were there last year have closed down and are empty. So, all in all, a bit disappointing to what it was. Hopefully by Summer 2018 it will look a lot better - but in March 2018 it was, like, eh... meh.

Silver Comet Trail

Reviewed By HCovik - Atlanta, Georgia

We generally walk here at least once a week for about 3 miles, starting at the Nickajack Elementary school (Mavell rd) or at the corner of Fountain rd and the E-W Connector.
It's paved, so you'd have to watch the bicyclists. Not all of them give you a warning ("on your right") and some think they're in the Tour the France.
It's not lit, so don't press your luck by walking after sunset.

Sweetwater Creek State Park

Reviewed By mlorahga - Augusta, Georgia

I visited the park in order to see the ruins of the New Manchester Factory. Life in New Manchester, now encompassed by Sweetwater State Park, centered around a huge 5-story textile mill. The mill was powered by a headrace channel diverted from Sweetwater Creek.
It was in full production on July 9th of 1864 when US soldiers forced their way into the factory and set the building ablaze. After being detained in Kentucky, the factory workers were set free North of the Ohio River as long as they swore allegiance to the Union and promised not to return to Georgia.
New Manchester did not survive the loss of its employment base and majority of its population, but the 5-story brick walls of the factory still tower above the creek.
This weekend the park celebrated New Manchester days with historic demonstrations and reenactments.

We went during spring break week, so it might not always be like this. But the place was so crowded we didn't really get to enjoy any of the exhibits for being jostled along. I had always heard it was a fabulous aquarium, but I will never visit it again, nor do I recommend anyone try during a typically "busy" week. I bought tickets in advance, because I had heard the number of attendees was regulated. That number should be lowered. I had driven 5 hours with my grandchildren for this attraction and we left after an hour because it was PURE chaos.

Mable House

Reviewed By Mariette V - Dublin, Georgia

We did drive all the way from Central Georgia to Mableton for seeing The Atlanta Pops perform with Chloë Agnew and it was beyond expectation. The weather was still 84ºF or 29ºC at 6:30 PM when we got seated for the Concert. Comfortable, under a roof and great view with excellent acoustics. Our Holiday Inn Express Hotel was only 4 miles away.
We were in awe.

My daughter and her friend loved it! I was surprised at all the information I was able to take away from the visit. We will probably go again on an off season day to really slow down and enjoy the day.

Convenient and professionally run executive course. Friendly, well trained staff who act like they enjoy working with the public. Over the last 4 years, management company has upgraded the course tees to greens. Somewhat challenging with hole distance and sand trap placements. Will use most clubs in bag. Large driving range with both chipping and putting greens.

The Hidden Escape

Reviewed By Aaron B - Atlanta, Georgia

I had never been through an escape room, but I had a general idea of what to expect. My expectations were exceeded! The clues were clever, the puzzles tricky, and the over quality was excellent.

One thing that I really appreciated was the fact that all of the clues and puzzles tied into the theme. There was no, "I found a pad lock. Look, there's a random number written under this lamp. That must be the combination". Everything worked together great. AND, there's a super awesome surprise half way through...but that's all I'm going to say about that!.
