If it were easier to pronounce, you could call it a "rellor retsaoc."
That's "roller coaster" backwards, and Six Flags Over Georgia is going forward with plans to make its Great American Scream Machine run backward beginning Saturday for a limited time.
"The Great American Scream Machine embodies all of the classic thrills Six Flags Over Georgia is known for in the Atlanta region," says park President Dale Kaetzel. "Now, coaster fans will be able to experience this beloved ride backward and the exhilarating sensation when you can't see the turns coming."
By the numbers

The Great American Scream Machine has provided nearly 9 million rides since it debuted in 1973, the longest, fastest and tallest wooden roller coaster in the world at the time.
