Six Flags is get­ting a 15-story pen­du­lum ride in new park area

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY - By Ben Brasch ben.brasch@ajc.com

“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.
