Cobb Travel & Tourism is excited to announce Six Flags Over Georgia and its sister property, Six Flags White Water, had an economic impact of $228 million in its 2015 season. This represents a 17 percent increase from the 2014 season and 31% increase over the past two years.

Cobb County directly benefits from this economic impact as visitors spend their dollars on local accommodations, transportation, entertainment and recreation, food and retail throughout the county.

“Six Flags Over Georgia is Cobb’s number 1 attraction and its impact continues to grow and be felt throughout the community,” said Holly Quinlan, CEO of Cobb Travel & Tourism. “By adding Hurricane Harbor and extending their season with Holiday in the Park, Six Flags was able to broaden their reach and draw even more visitors to Cobb County.”

Tourism is Cobb’s leading industry with $2.75 billion in economic impact and employing more than 32,000 people.  “Six Flags Over Georgia and Six Flags White Water are powerful economic drivers and contribute significantly to tourism’s overall impact in our county. We are looking forward to seeing the impact in 2016 with the addition of their two new family themed sections, Bugs Bunny Boomtown and DC SUPER Friends,” said Quinlan. “On the heels of our company’s sixth straight record year, Six Flags Atlanta Properties is thrilled to be a strong community tourism partner in Cobb County, offering our guests world-class attractions for the entire family,” said Six Flags Atlanta Park Properties President Dale Kaetzel. “We expect to continue our strong economic momentum in 2016 with the addition of our new attractions at both parks, along with the expanded Fright Fest and Holiday in the Park events.”
