Georgia Scorcher is a steel stand-up roller coaster located at Six Flags Over Georgia in Austell, Georgia, USA. The ride was built by Bolliger & Mabillard and opened in May 1999. It is also the last stand-up coaster to be built to date.
On November 10, 1998, Six Flags Over Georgia announced that they would be adding Georgia Scorcher.
Georgia Scorcher opened on May 8, 1999. It was the park's second Bolliger & Mabillard coaster to be built.
The ride starts off with a turn onto the Chain lift, which brings riders to the ride's highest point, 107 feet. When riders reach the top of the lift hill, they enter a Pre-Drop and then head down the 101 foot drop where they hit the top speed of 54 mph. They then enter the first inversion, an 81 foot tall vertical loop. Then riders head into an s-hill. Unlike a lot of s-hills, this one has a start that goes of 180 degrees before the peak and therefore could be considered as a treble clef as seen on Fury 325 and Orion, the two latest B&M Gigas to open. Then the ride hits a helix. This element interacts with the vertical loop. The ride hits a hill that faces the path. The ride then hits the corkscrew and goes through some small turns and hills before going up a hill, banking to the left, and hitting the brake run.
For the Georgia Scorcher's 20th anniversary in 2019, the ride was repainted with a cherry red track and dark gray supports. It originally had a yellow track and purple supports.
2 trains with 8 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in a single row, for a total of 32 riders per train.
