This year will also come with new attractions at the parks. Ashcraft revealed Six Flags Over Georgia will welcome a new show featuring America's Got Talent finalists iLuminate, and White Water will bring back its "Dive In Movies" series.
I have been to Six Flags and had the BEST time, but on more than one occasion, I have been disappointed by young black thugs who hang around, use all kinds of foul language, breaking in line and almost trying to pick a fight or make any problem a racial problem. Granted, not all thugs are black, but Six Flags is located in the roughest part of Cobb County, so the shoe fits, so to speak. There needs to be more security guards throughout the park. BatMan is still my favorite roller coaster and I love the new and improved Monster Plantation.

The iLuminate shows will run May 26 through Aug. 12 in the Crystal Pistol entertainment venue and will feature a "full sensory experience equipped with electro luminescent wiring and LED lighting, a huge musical score and incredible performances."
White Water will open on May 19 and close on Sept. 3.
Ashcraft said ticket prices would stay the same this year, at $58.29 for adults at the main gate after tax and $42.39 for children 48 inches tall and shorter after taxes.
Cobb Travel and Tourism CEO Holly Bass said last summer that Six Flags Over Georgia and Six Flags White Water were the county's top tourist attractions, and Ashcraft said the two parks continue to see growth year after year and have a positive impact on the county's economy.
"I think with our new company restructuring, we put our sole focus on operating a regional theme park and focused on what we did best," Ashcraft said. "We had expanded in other areas, but getting back to our basics has made all the difference in the world. We put our primary focus back on our guests to make sure they had a great day at park, and as a result, we had a phenomenal year."

The Dive In Movies series will allow White Water park visitors to stay after the park's normal closing hours on certain dates to wade in the wave pool while watching a family movie. Ashcraft said the park did the series many years ago, and she and other executives decided to take it to the next level this year with a much larger screen and better movies. That series will run for eight days in the summer, she said.
