Today, Six Flags Over Georgia also announced military members will
receive special access on Blue Hawk. From July 1-31, active and retired
service members can show their military ID card and bypass the queue
line, along with one additional guest, for the thrill of a lifetime.

“We are ecstatic to debut the newly enhanced Blue Hawk roller coaster
while also honoring the men and women who protect our freedom,” said Six
Flags Atlanta Properties Park President Dale Kaetzel. “Six Flags Over
Georgia is committed to providing our guests with the best ride
experience at the Thrill Capital of the South with our world-class rides
and attractions.”

Blue Hawk reopens with new ride enhancements, including:

  • Two new coaster trains with new soft-vest restraints for a more
    comfortable experience;
  • Enhancements to the 2,800 feet of track for a much smoother ride; and
  • A fresh, new coat of shiny blue paint along the track and silver paint
    on the support poles.

Earlier this year, park guests selected Blue Hawk as the new name for
the coaster. Approximately 6,200 ballots were cast and Blue Hawk
received more than 50 percent of the vote among three finalists.

As part of the grand reopening of Blue Hawk, Six Flags Over Georgia is
hosting a summer food drive with MUST Ministries. Park guests who bring
six or more non-perishable food items on June 9 and 10 will receive
reduced admission to the park.

Six Flags Over Georgia is now open daily through August 7. For more
