It's Virtually Here! The 1st VR Roller Coaster

Six Flags Over Georgia, which calls itself the "Thrill Capital of the South," is debuting the New Revolution Virtual Reality Coaster, said to be North America’s first VR roller coaster, this spring. As we've seen, virtual reality is all over the family travel news scene.

The park is also catering to its large family clientele with the more gentle Bugs Bunny Boomtown, featuring seven new family attractions that all ages can enjoy together.

VR Ride Takes Park Guests for Big Thrills

According to their press announcement, park-goers wearing wireless Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus will be "transported into a futuristic battle to save planet Earth from an alien invasion" on the New Revolution VR Coaster.

Each guest will be immersed in the experience of being a co-pilot of their own virtual fighter jets on one of the park’s most popular roller coasters, which means flying straight up a skyscraper wall, then down a 95 degree pitch, then doing wild maneuvers in between office buildings.

Sound like your kind of thing? New Revolution VR Coaster opens March 19.

New Theme Park Area for Young Kids

For younger thrill-seekers and their families, Six Flags Over Georgia is set to debut seven attractions in the all-new Bugs Bunny Boomtown. Expect to see Daffy Duck Bucket Blasters, a wild and crazy family water battle; Speedy Gonzales Speed Boats, where guests will be screaming “Andale Andale” on six speed boats; Bugs Bunny High Seas Adventure, a chance to fly through the air on a junior sea-worthy quest and much more.

Daffy Duck Bucket Blasters allows families to splash others in buckets!

Six Flags Over Georgia also announced the world’s first DC SUPER Friends family-themed section will open later this spring, featuring five new attractions.

This season, Six Flags Over Georgia will be open on weekends through May 15 and daily April 2 through 10 for Spring Break. During summer, daily operation begins on May 21.

It's also the time of year for lots of news from all 18 Six Flags parks across the United States, Mexico and Canada. Note that season pass holders also include admission to Six Flags White Water in Marietta, available online at
