After a heavy renovation of the ride, Six Flags Over Georgia has announced that the public has voted the new name of Ninja to be Blue Hawk.  The ride will reopen to the public on June 2nd, featuring improvements that include an all new paint job - seen lit up beautifully at night in the above photo.

The naming contest received over 6,000 responses, and Blue Hawk received more than 50% of all the votes cast.  Of the two other choices, American Eagle came in second and Air Commander in third place.

Blue Hawk will feature a new theme that is dedicated to the service of our Nation's Military, including features in the queue that show the various aircraft used by them.  Another major improvement is the addition of two brand new trains that feature "soft-vest restraints" that along with "enhancements" to the track will make for a much more comfortable ride experience.

At the grand reopening ceremony on June 2nd, service members from Dobbins Air Reserve Base will be on hand and the official Blue Hawk logo will be revealed.
