“In addition to our daily inspections, all of our rides are inspected at least annually by a third party independent ride consulting firm, by state ride inspectors, by insurance inspectors, by corporate engineers and by corporate safety experts,” the Cobb County theme park announced this week.
The 15 rides at Six Flags Over Georgia, from the carousel to the Goliath roller coaster that travels up to 67 mph, were inspected last spring as part of a yearly maintenance.
The round of checks includes everything from cleanliness to anti-roll mechanisms to safety restraints and an operational test.
The round of checks in March listed only small fixes like repairs to lighting, repainting markings and securing railings in the passenger loading areas.
“We have no details to share about the accident at Six Flags Over Texas. Six Flags Over Georgia does not have a ride similar to the one in Texas and our operation will not be affected,” a statement from Six Flags Over Georgia said.
