Time once again for the annual Spring Fling event at Six Flags Over Georgia hosted by the Southeast region of the American Coaster Enthusiast. The event began with a 8:00 am check in and pick up of my registration package. I started the day by heading for Goliath were I would spend my 1 hour of exclusive ride time enjoying many re rides. Toward the end of our ride session I went for a ride on the Mindbender roller coaster. Everything was going good until oops we are not moving any more. Seems the ride was just not up to making the lift hill today. So after a few minutes of giggles from a train full of coaster enthusiasts the mechanics were on there way up the lift. Everybody was excited as most of us have wanted to do an Evac and walk down the lift hill. Well today was the day as we were let out of our seats and down the lift hill we climbed. It was an awesome way to start a day getting to be evacuated from a roller coaster. After our morning ride session I hit a few of the other roller coasters at the park. The club gathered for lunch which consisted of catered Country Fried Steak and mashed potatoes. During lunch there was a raffle to win a behind the scene tour at the park. I did not win but Joel of Coastergallery.com won twice and gave a ticket to me, thanks Joel very cool indeed, so I got to go on the tour again. This years tour also included a look at the new water park additions along with a lengthy walk around back areas of the park. Parts of the tour were along some of the roller coasters with different views of the rides. So another great year at Spring Fling has come to pass, great weather, ride sessions, fun roller coasters and all around a great time. Looking forward to next year but dont think we can top an evacuation from a roller coaster lift hill.
