Billionaires in Georgia

When it comes down to people that have a millionaire statuses there are lots of millionaires scattered throughout the United States. When it comes to people that are in the billionaire range, however, this is not quite as common.

Everyone knows that Seattle has a billionaire in place by the name of Bill Gates. When it comes to billionaires in the South, however, many people tend to overlook people in southern states because they may not be as engaged in the spotlight as someone else.

In fact, there are 10 billionaires that are connected to Atlanta, but many people may not even know that these Georgia billionaires exist. There are people like Bubba Cathy that have a net worth of 4.8 billion dollars and he is in Atlanta as the CEO of Chick-fil-A, but many people may not know that Georgia is home.

Sara Blakely, who is famous for Spanx, also moved away from her Clearwater home in Florida to make Atlanta home.

There are others that are more well-known like Ted Turner who is the Pioneer for TBS and CNN, and he is another resident that has made Atlanta home.

For years people have been calling Atlanta the Big Apple of the South. It should really come as no surprise that this is where a lot of billionaires are taking up homes. It really is easy for them to make expensive homes in Atlanta because there are so many areas that are still under development. The city continues to grow as an entertainment mecca as wooded areas have become areas for homes. It tends to bring a lot of celebrities to this city because people are even shooting movies in Atlanta.

There is even a bidding war to make Atlanta one of the Amazon headquarters because of all the growth.

Villains Beware: Six Flags Over Georgia Gets a New Justice League-Inspired Ride

Six Flags Over Georgia is one of metro Atlanta’s most iconic attractions. Now joining it, is one of pop culture’s most iconic attractions: a ride entirely inspired by DC Comic’s Justice League.

 

The Six Flags chain is one which has been long entwined with the majesty of DC Comic superheros, with the Georgia park specifically already paying homage to the likes of Superman, Batman, the Joker, and more. Now enter: the Justice League, the unstoppable team made up of Batman, Superman, Diana Prince, Green Lantern, Flash, Aquaman, and Martian Manhunter. Together, they form not only a super squadron of impressive avengers, but the inspiration comprising the theme park’s latest thrill, “Justice League: Battle for Metropolis”.

 

The ride, which is situated in an enormous building almost spanning the length of a football field, begins dark and slow: but don’t relax just yet. Immersed in an interactive storyline complete with animatronics, 3D video, pyro, and other effects, riders plummet into the world of heroes and villains as they are tasked with the job of freeing the Justice League from the evil hands of your favorite bad guys, maneuvering around tricks from The Joker and invading Lex Luthor’s top secret lair.

 

Guests don’t merely watch the storyline however; they’re a part of it! Each seat equips the guest with a virtual laser gun, which they’ll need to familiarize themselves with quickly in order to survive the many thrills each pesky evildoer has planned. (Hint: there’s a lot.) Riders can see their personal scores tallied in front of them as they play.

 

Outfitted with thrills and special effects usually only reserved for a more high-profile Florida theme park, the Georgia attraction boasts smooth riding quality and excitement that’s thrilling, but still family-friendly. From a virtual loop to blasting Lex-Bots, it’s a ride that’s quite literally super, giving every attendee the chance themselves to be the superhero themselves.

 

The ride officially opens May 26.
