Six Flags Over Georgia has now opened the park's second new for 2016 children's area, called DC Super Friends and the first of its kind anywhere.  The first new area, Bugs Bunny Boomtown, opened earlier in the season.

DC Super Friends features many of DC Comics' most popular Super Heroes and Super Villains, including Batman, Wonder Woman, The Joker and Superman.  This is the first time that the DC Comics characters have been featured in a children's area at a Six Flags park.

“We are excited to unveil this thrilling new section just in time for the start of the summer vacation season,” said Six Flags Atlanta Properties Park President Dale Kaetzel. “This area, combined with the addition of Bugs Bunny Boomtown earlier this year, solidifies Six Flags Over Georgia as the perfect destination for family fun.”

The DC Super Friends area contains five all new attractions, including four rides - three of which are brand new and one that has been rethemed.  There are also the Harley Quinn Games in the new section, which allows family members to challenge each other in games of skill.  Visitors can also pick up some new swag in the Heroes Store.

The attraction that has been rethemed is known as the Joker Funhouse Coaster, which used to be called Canyon Blaster.  The family roller coaster was added to the park 2004 and features 900 feet of track and speeds of 30 miles per hour.  The ride's new Joker theme has resulted in a vibrant refresh of both the station building and the ride's trains.

This is Superman Tower of Power, a brand new attraction.  The bouncing free-fall drop stands 65 feet tall and while designed for families still gives a pretty good thrill to riders.  Riders are seated in an outward facing ring around the tower, with their legs dangling below them as they rise and fall.

Batman takes control on this new ride, named the Batcopters.  The ride is decidedly for smaller kids where they are able to "help save Gotham City by flying high in the sky."

DC Super Friends also features Wonder Woman Flight School, a brand new set of Larson flying scooters that allow riders to control the swing of their car by moving its fin as they twirl around.
