Acrophobia opened on May 12, 2001.
On June 22, 2007, Acrophobia was temporarily closed following an accident on Superman: Tower of Power at Kentucky Kingdom.
During the 2017 season, Six Flags Over Georgia added a virtual reality experience to Acrophobia. Dubbed Drop of Doom, the experience put guests in a helicopter battle. They were given a 360 degree rotating view high above massive city skyscrapers that were under siege by enormous spiders. The attraction's climax featured a showdown with a spider that was the size of a van, teeth-gnashing and in full attack mode.
