Six Flags Over Georgia Is Asking YOU to Pick “Ninja” 2.0’s Name
Your Vote Counts! Six Flags Over Georgia Needs Guests’ Help to Name Updated Roller Coaster
Voting Open Now Through May 8 for the All-New “Ninja”
AUSTELL, Ga. — April 22, 2016 — The polls are now open and Six Flags Over Georgia is seeking help from park guests to select the name of the All-New “Ninja” roller coaster. The ride, soon-to-be formerly known as the “Ninja” is currently undergoing major renovations.
In anticipation of the grand re-opening of one of the park’s most popular rides, The Thrill Capital of the South has narrowed the name of the updated coaster to: American Eagle, Blue Hawk and Air Commander. Guests should visit www.sixflags.com/newninjavote to let their voice be heard.
Service Members from Dobbins Air Reserve Base will participate in a ribbon cutting ceremony and the coaster will have a special military theme to honor America’s service members, when it reopens later this spring.
The “Ninja” – which opened in 1992 and has thrilled more than six million guests in more than 20 years – will reopen with new ride enhancements, including:
- Two new coaster trains with soft-vest restraints for a more comfortable experience;
- Enhancements to the 2,800 feet of track for a much smoother ride at more than 50 miles per hour; and
- A fresh, new coat of shiny blue paint along the track and silver paint on the support poles.
Voting will remain open until 11:59 PM on Sunday, May 8. The winning name will be announced at the grand re-opening of the “Ninja” in early June.
Six Flags Over Georgia is now open on weekends through May 15 and daily summer operation begins on May 21. For more information visit www.sixflags.com/overgeorgia.

The new paint job looks phenomenal!
