AUSTELL — Six Flags White Water is debuting its newest attraction, the Typhoon Twister, this weekend. The water park opened for the 2013 season on May 18.

Typhoon Twister will send four adrenaline seeking water-park-goers at a time down an enclosed five-story dropoff before launching them into a 67-foot bowl that sends them spiraling down into a corkscrew chute before finally plunging into a splash pool.

Six Flags White Water is one of the largest water parks in the Southeast and has more than 50 waterslides.

Other attractions include the Tornado, the Cliffhanger and the Atlanta Ocean Wave Pool.

The park’s operating hours for the 2013 season are 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Entrance fees for adults are $39.99 for a one-day pass, $29.99 a day for children shorter than 48 inches, and children 2 years old and younger will be admitted free of charge.

Customers can purchase one season pass — which includes unlimited visits, free passes for friends and in-park discounts — for $59.99, and two season passes for $99.

Six Flags adds SkyScreamer

Six Flags Over Georgia remains open full-time through Aug. 11.

Its major new ride is the SkyScreamer, which towers 40-feet higher than the park’s mega-coaster Goliath.

SkyScreamer gives passengers a view of the Atlanta skyline. Thirty-two riders sit two across in open air swings attached to the “star points,” while spinning to the top of the tower. At full-swing, guests revolve in a 98-foot circle at speeds of 40 mph.

Both parks will be open full-time through August 11. Operating hours may vary.

Six Flags Entertainment Corp. is the world’s largest regional theme park company with $1.1 billion in revenue and 18 parks across the United States, Mexico and Canada.

We took our Grandchildren there...once. The high admission got us the following:

Groups/gangs of unruly, loud teens roamed the park using language unfit for print.

Filthy, unattended bathrooms.

Overpriced food and drinks served by unfriendly staff.

And, now they want us to pay to play in (most-probably) unsanitary water with types we wouldn't even share a shower/bath with? I think not.

Six Flags has outlived it's time.
