AUSTELL, Ga. – February 15, 2012 – On the heels of an extremely successful 2011 season, Six Flags Over Georgia and Six Flags White Water are gearing up for a monumental season in 2012. Today, Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, the parent company of the Atlanta-area parks, announced impressive earnings for 2011, reporting $350 million of Adjusted EBITDA1 in 2011 – the highest in company history.
“We are extremely excited to kick off the park’s 45th season here at Six Flags Over Georgia,” said Melinda Ashcraft, park president. “Throughout the years, our guests have supported our park, establishing Six Flags as a staple in the community. In little more than a year after restructuring, Six Flags is once again leading the regional theme park industry by focusing on what we do best – delivering thrills and fun to guests of all ages.”
Six Flags Over Georgia and Six Flags White Water are in the middle of a hiring spree to staff the more than 2,400 seasonal positions required to operate the parks, both located in Cobb County. Applications are still being accepted online at sixflagsjobs.com.
This summer, the theme park will debut a ground-breaking new show aptly named iLuminate™, featuring state-of-the-art costumes equipped with Electroluminescent (EL) wire and LEDs to provide a full sensory experience for guests. The show will run daily May 26 through August 12 in the famed Crystal Pistol Music Hall.
Six Flags White Water is bringing back the guest-favorite Dive-In Movies, a summertime event for families to relax at the Atlanta Ocean Wave Pool and catch the latest flicks on a giant screen. Dive-In Movies will be shown weekly during June and July.
Six Flags Over Georgia will kick off its 45th season on Saturday, March 17. The park will be open weekends through May 25, plus daily for Spring Break March 31 through April 8. Six Flags White Water kicks off the summer season on Saturday, May 19.
The theme park is currently offering an incredible deal on 2012 Season Passes, priced at just $54.99 each when you purchase 4 or more – the same price as a one-day admission ticket.
