When is the best time to go to Six Flags Over Georgia?
One of the oldest parks in the Six Flags chain, Over Georgia is located west of Atlanta and boasts over 40 rides, including 11 roller coasters.
Six Flags Over Georgia is a popular destination for locals and tourists, but when is it least crowded? Let’s take a look at what to expect crowd-wise throughout the park’s operating season.
March – April
Opening Day – Opening weekend typically happens in mid-March and it can get busy, although the crowds generally aren’t too bad. Sundays are less crowded than Saturdays.
Spring Break – Six Flags Over Georgia is open all week long for Spring Break on the first week of April, and it’s usually pretty crowded.
After Spring Break week, the park is only open on weekends for the rest of April. Sundays are your best bet for lighter crowds, as it’s busiest on Saturdays.
Weekends – Weekends in the month of May are another great time to visit Over Georgia. The summer season hasn’t started just yet, so the crowds are usually manageable. Sundays are least crowded.
Memorial Day Weekend – The park gets crowded for Memorial Day Weekend. The holiday marks the beginning of daily openings for the summer. For lighter crowds, aim for the weekdays after Memorial Day.
Summer Season – Six Flags Over Georgia is open everyday in June. The earlier in June you go, the better. The park tends to get busier later in the month as more schools get out for the summer. It’s most crowded on weekends, so weekdays are again your best bet for shorter lines.
4th of July Weekend – The summer season is in full swing by July. Over Georgia is typically very crowded for the 4th of July holiday.
July is the busiest month at Six Flags, so there’s really not much relief from the summer crowds. If you must go, avoid the weekends.
Weekdays – The summer season finally winds down in August as schools get back in session. The crowds usually aren’t too bad on weekdays.
The park goes back to weekend-only openings in mid-August, and Sundays are least crowded.
Labor Day Weekend – The three-day weekend typically draws big crowds to Six Flags Over Georgia.
After Labor Day, the park is only open on weekends in September and the crowds are much more manageable than in the busy summer months.
Fright Fest – Fright Fest takes over in October on weekends. The Halloween event tends to get crowded in the evening hours. If you get there early, crowds are usually a lot lighter.
