SixFlagsOverGeorgiaIoA[Book: Tim Hollis – 2006 – 16x23cm – 128 Pages – Many B&W photos]. When Six Flags Over Georgia (Austell, Georgia) opened in June 1967, it became the first theme park in the Southeast. Although the park is best known today for its high-speed coasters, here we recapture its earlier years when it was devoted to the various periods of Georgia’s history. This book also explores how the park’s focus changed and expanded over the decades and takes a look at some of its classic advertising and souvenirs. Chapter Points: Introduction; Six Flags Over Yesterday; Marching through Georgia (and Britain); The Confederate Section; Tales of the Okefenokee; The Spanish Section; The French Section; Jean Ribaut’s Adventure; The USA Section; Beyond the Six Flags; An Unflagging Publicity Campaign. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
