Six Flags Over Georgia is turning things around on the popular Great American Scream Machine -- the roller coaster will run backwards when the park opens on March 10.
Six Flags Over Georgia has said the change is for a limited time. Six Flags has grown tremendously since the Scream Machine opened in 1973, adding newer, taller and faster attractions that flip riders upside down and plunge them down vertical drops. But the historic wooden coaster is such a staple. This marks the second time Six Flags Over Georgia has turned the seats around – the last time goes back to the early 1990s.
