“Six Flags Over Georgia is honored to have Symeon become part of the Six
Flags team,” said Six Flags Atlanta Properties Park President Dale
Kaetzel. “We are thrilled to offer our guests world-class attractions
and also help create lifelong memories for the youngest of guests
battling life-threating illnesses.”

Symeon was presented with the Key to Six Flags, while acting as Honorary
Park President. He helped open Bugs Bunny Boomtown, shadowed Kaetzel
throughout the day, talked with guests, answered questions and brought
smiles to all.

From Metro Atlanta, Symeon has been associated with Make-A-Wish Georgia
for more than two years. He is an avid fan of Six Flags, always making
his way to the Gold Town Racers GoKarts each time he visits the park. He
was diagnosed with cancer, but has since been declared cancer-free.

“Symeon is one of nearly 7,000 amazing kids we’ve granted a wish to in
our 21 years of serving Georgia children facing life-threatening medical
conditions,” said Make-A-Wish Georgia Marketing and Communications Vice
President Amy Alvarez. “Wishes are a movement powered by an incredible
community like Six Flags at a time when a family needs it the most. We
feel luck to have partners like Six Flags who are willing to create
lifelong memories for our kids long after their wish.”

Six Flags Over Georgia is now open on weekends and daily April 2-10 for
