Six Flags is getting a 15-story pendulum ride in new park area
“I was sick, sick unto death, with that long agony, and when they at length unbound me, and I was permitted to sit, I felt that my senses were leaving me.”
That is the beginning of “The Pit and the Pendulum” by Edgar Allen Poe, but it is also how you might feel at the beginning of the new ride coming to Six Flags Over Georgia.
The Cobb County amuse- ment park announced Thursday it is getting a 15-story pendulum ride that sends people to and fro at 70 mph called “Pandemonium,” set to open in March 2019.
The new ride will anchor the park’s new “Screampunk Section,” which will be steampunk-themed, a genre of scien c e fiction featuring steam-powered technology from the 19th century.
Park spokeswoman Divina Mims Pickett said that a similar pendulum ride opened at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles. CraZanity stands 170 feet tall and goes 75 mph.
So ours won’t be as tall, not that it will matter when you’re up there probably screaming your head off.
A new ride at Six Flags Over Georgia might cause lunches to be lost.
