Great Six Flags Air Racer was a Barnstormer previously located at Six Flags Over Georgia in Austell, Georgia, USA. It was situated in the British themed area.[1] It operated from May 11, 1984 to 2000.[2][3]


Riders sat in one of twelve biplanes, which were suspended from a 135 foot tall central tower. While in motion, the ride vehicles circled the tower at a maximum height of approximately 100 feet.[1]


In its first month of operation, an electrical component failure caused some planes to fall out of position leading to collisions. 34 people were taken to hospital with minor injuries.[3]
