This ride seems crammed and packed for a small park or such. Not many good elements, but it has its moments. It seems to me this shouldve been like Mantis or Riddlers Revenge, but instead is an abbrv. version of one.

Very fun ride. The drop isnt all that high but its very explosive. The seats on B&M standups are a little unconfortable but the layout of this ride makes this a very underated coaster.

According to rumors, this ride was originally supposed to be a lot longer. Although it is a little short, its still packed with lots of great elements. Dont go to SFOG without riding it!

The Georgia Scorcher is a pretty good stand up coaster, and SFoG did an incredible job to fit the 3000 foot coaster in that little space. The elements are good, but nothing special.

Ah, the Georgia Scorcher, the coaster that got me back into coasters. After about a 7 year absence from coasters (after a scary experience as a youth), I slowly began to climb back onto the airtime machines. I had always ridden woodies, but it was inversions which frightened me. So, after one macho day at the park some three+ years ago, I decided to give the newest coaster a shot -- the Georgia Scorcher (note: look at the date, Deja Vu had yet to open at this time, so the Scorcher was still the newest). I had never even seen a B&M stand-up, and I was in for a treat. After arranging myself in the seats, we began the climb up the lift. I was off, no turning back now. When we reached the top, hit the dip and flew down into the huge 80 foot loop, I was already hooked. There we went steaming through an improbably twisted layout, seemingly utilizing every spec of earth between the log flume and the sidewalk. The swooping curves and overbanks are awesome, most notably the violent overbank to the right preceding the dive into the flat spin, which is a nice and tight, producing good forces. The layout continues on its near-ground, lightning-pacing journey among the numerous curves, and though it is a mere 3000 feet, the Scorcher truly does put your feet to the fire, and it was the catalyst in what is my passion for coasters.I originally gave the Scorcher a 9, but now, I am lowering that to an 8. The reason is by comparison to the other stand-ups that I have experienced: I gave Riddlers Revenge a 9, and it deserved it, but the Scorcher does not compare to Riddlers, so I had to lower it. I gave Mantis an 8 as well, and I think that this is on the same level as Mantis, as they are both good in different aspects.

Falling into that big ol loop, then into that tight upward spiral before the large helix through the loop. After the intresting "up-the-wall" element and into the tight corkscrew. After the finely tuned figure 8 finish. When youre standing on that break run after catching your breath... Only one word comes to mind:

~~BEUTIFUL~~

By far the best stand-up I have ridden. Most of the other B&M Stand-Ups rely on inversions for there thrill. The Georgia Scorcher has that in a smaller portion but also has turns that usually would be used to invert a train.
