Its so dull and boring but at least it has a good view when you get to the top. I dont see why they call it the Great Gasp, I wasnt gasping at all.

This ride is classic. Whenever I see that, I know its Six Flags Over Georgia. You get a great view of the park, as you do on most all of the rides, so I wouldnt call it a must, but it is the tallest attraction in the park at 225 feet.

This is such a unique ride and Im glad SFOG has kept it all these years. Perhaps its not as thrilling and novel as it was when it opened in 76, but it is still a wonderful ride and should not be missed when at the park.

This is a fun ride that gives a great view of the park. When the parachute first begins to descend, it feels like youre falling, but then it goes down smoothly. Unfortunately, this ride often has a long, slow line. On hot days, it is even worse because the queue line provides no shade relief from the sun.

I always considered this ride to be the centerpiece of the park. When you saw Great Gasp, you were almost there. At first it looks pretty intimidating, but its really relaxed, and offers a nice view of Atlanta.

Dear Great Gasp,

Sadly, I just read of your imminent closure in less than a month. Though it saddens me dearly, I know it is in the park&#39.s best interests. Unfortunately, rides age and parts become hard to come by. Do you remember when you were built 30 seasons ago? That $1.5 million price tag was incredible for that day and age, and equaled that of your wooden bretheren in the back of the park. You were advertised as the next generation of thrill rides, a new concept designed to thrill millions. However, the times have now changed and advancements (such as your neighbors Freefall and Acrophobia) have delegated to &quot.Family Ride&quot. status. It is a shame to see you go on so many different levels. First and foremost, you are an icon of the park. For the past 30 seasons, visitors to the park have been able to spot you for miles upon miles, and it can be seen all the way downtown. You WERE the park&#39.s skyline for ages, and still are the tallest ride in the park. However, that will no longer hold true with your departure, and though we have wanted a hyper-coaster for years, it is at a devastating loss. This will mean one less ride for families to enjoy. One less ride to take for relaxation in the park, a park which has already bastardized it&#39.s locomotive and now will completely get ride of you. You weren&#39.t the best of rides, but you were a good one. You have spawnded memories that will be cherished for ages. I myself cannot, and will not, ever forget how well you lit up the skyline at night. I won&#39.t forget the wonderful birds-eye view of the park, nor will I forget those delightful descents. Fortunately, Six Flags plans to keep some of your significant parts as relics of your illustriouus 30-year career. While your riders may die off, I hope your legacy at the park will stay forever. Good bye Great Gasp, you will be missed dearly and will always have a special spot in my heart.

Worth the ride, but not worth the line. The line moves so slow and it is so hot. The ride itself is entertaining and unique, just dont wait a long time for it.

You get a great view from the top of the tower. I just wish they would actually drop you like the old parachute jump rides and let the parachute do its job.
