The Screaming Eagle Rollercoaster at Dixieland Amusement Park, Fayetteville, Georgia

After spending the day at Lake Winnepeseukah up in Chattanooga we drove down to our hotel which was a stone's throw from Six Flags Over Georgia (update coming soon) and then the plan was to head on down to Fayetteville Georgia to visit Dixieland Amusement Park.  Eventually I was able to roust everyone from our comfortable air conditioned rooms and we headed to the south side of Atlanta where Dixieland is.

We had a few reasons to visit Dixieland but the big one was to score a "dirty credit" on the Screaming Eagle coaster at the park.

Now if you're not familiar with the term "dirty credit" it's not derogatory, it just refers to a kiddy coaster, a coaster at a travelling carnival, or one at a family entertainment center like Dixieland Amusement Park.  We coined that phrase last year on the Negative-G Road Trip when we had to use Bond in order for everyone to add a kiddy coaster to their coaster count.  Someone commented that they felt "dirty" using a kid to get a credit and the phrase "dirty credit" was coined.

The Screaming Eagle was added to Dixieland back in 2007 and was built and designed by E&F Miler Industries.

If you think the Screaming Eagle looks like a giant "Erector Set" don't worry, you're not the only one.
