They might seem like a high-end barbecue pit, but they have a very humble spot in my heart.

Unlike Mantis, Chang and The Riddler's Revenge, which opened at Cedar Point in 1996, Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom in 1997 and Six Flags Magic Mountain in 1998 respectively, Georgia Scorcher did not continue the trend of the world's tallest and fastest stand-up roller coasters. Its layout is more modest, in fitting with the long, narrow site selected for it.

Georgia Scorcher (or simply Scorcher) is a stand-up roller coaster at Six Flags Over Georgia. The second design from Bolliger & Mabillard to be built at the park, Georgia Scorcher opened in May 1999 as the last new stand-up roller coaster to have been constructed anywhere on Earth. Georgia Scorcher is 107 feet (33 m) tall and has a track length of 3000 feet (910 m) and a top speed of 54 mph (87 km/h). The attraction's tagline is "Put your feet to the fire."

Lift

Georgia Scorcher departs the station and climbs its 107-foot (33 m) lift hill. Then drops down a 101 ft drop. Then the roller coaster enters its 81-foot (25 m) vertical loop. It then climbs to the right, circling back towards the station before diving sharply down to the left, entering a non-inverting inclined loop that threads through the center of the vertical loop. After exiting the element, the roller coaster then climbs a small hill and is twisted over on its right side, twisting back as it enters its second inversion, a corkscrew.
