Wynne, and thus they are the only parks to have used the "Six Flags" name since their original grand openings.

Six Flags over Georgia83 viewsAfter the success of his original Six Flags park in Arlington, Texas, park founder Angus Wynne began searching for a location for a second park. He settled upon a parcel of land located along the Chattahoochee River just west of the city of Atlanta, and design work started in 1963.

69 viewsThe park is not owned by the Six Flags Theme Parks corporation. In an arrangement similar to that for Six Flags Over Texas, it is owned by a group of approximately 120 limited partners--some the heirs of Angus G. Wynn--and is managed by the corporation. In years past, this has caused significant friction, including legal action. Starting in 1991, the park was managed by Time Warner Entertainment.

79 viewsThe partners sued Time Warner in 1997, claiming that they had neglected to invest in the park and overcharged the partners for the improvements it did receive. A Gwinnett County civil court jury agreed and awarded the partners damages in excess of US$600 million.

101 viewsSix Flags Over Georgia, like most amusement parks, prides itself on its roller coaster collection. With the arrival of Goliath on April 1, 2006, it became only the third amusement park (after Six Flags Great America and Six Flags Great Adventure) to operate four coasters from the design firm Bolliger & Mabillard. Six Flags Magic Mountain became the fourth park to do so when it opened Tatsu five weeks later.
