If roller coasters isn’t your thing, Six Flags Over Georgia maintains a large number of other rides and attractions. Two featured attractions include “Acrophobia”, the world’s first “floorless” freefall tower ride, and the”Riverview Carousel”, one of only three remaining five-abreast carousels known to exist and on the National Register of Historical Places”. Their water park features “Skull Island”, a treasure trove of water rides and good clean fun.
