Six Flags Over Georgia Announces Name for Renovated Ninja
Park Guests Select ‘Blue Hawk’ as New Roller Coaster Name
Grand Reopening June 2 at Six Flags Over Georgia
AUSTELL, Ga. — May 17, 2016 — By popular vote, Six Flags Over Georgia announces its guests select Blue Hawk as the new name for the renovated Ninja roller coaster. Blue Hawk, featuring an initial drop of 122 feet at speeds of more than 50 miles per hour, is set to debut on Thursday, June 2.
More than 6,000 votes were cast in the naming poll earlier this month. Blue Hawk received more than 50 percent of the vote, with American Eagle finishing in second place and Air Commander in third place.
Blue Hawk will reopen with new ride enhancements, including:
- Two new coaster trains with new soft-vest restraints for a more comfortable experience;
- Enhancements to the 2,800 feet of track for a much smoother ride; and
- A fresh, new coat of shiny blue paint along the track and silver paint on the support poles.
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 in June.
Six Flags Over Georgia will unveil the official Blue Hawk logo on June 2. The park will be open for daily summer operation beginning May 21. For more information on the all-new Blue Hawk, visit www.sixflags.com/overgeorgia.
