Alexander: Our Preservation Conference continued to the final host park, Six Flags Over Georgia, and with it came more than a little rainfall. It was simply too wet to have the camera out until after dinner, which took place in the picnic grove behind Blue Hawk.
– Over the years, many of our images have popped up on other sites and forums, awesome that our coverage spreads, not so awesome that not everyone mentioned where they got the images from. We are totally fine with our audience using our images, BUT ONLY IF credit is given to cabincrewcoasterkings.com. Thank you! –
Blue Hawk was a project that Dale himself had pushed for despite some skepticism from his team. The risk of re-investing in the ride has paid off, however, as Dale informed me that Blue Hawk now has the highest ridership of any traditional looping coaster in the Six Flags chain.
It was nice to experience the ride in English after having my first ride on it at Six Flags Mexico. It’s a pretty solid ride, but I’m not certain if Six Flags parks will be disciplined enough to keep these rides in good shape over time.
And that concludes the ACE Preservation Conference!
Thank you Alabama Splash Adventure, Lake Winnie, and Six Flags Over Georgia for playing such gracious hosts, and thanks to ACE for organizing such a great event!
The day after the Conference is Dollywood’s annual Lightning Rod Run event! Lots of great new Dolly-details to come in the next update!
