Meet the Author


Author Tim Hollis first visited Six Flags Over Georgia during its opening season. A recognized authority on Southern roadside history, Hollis has written two books for Arcadia Publishing about his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, plus numerous other titles on Southern tourism and baby boomer pop culture for the University Press of Mississippi and Stackpole Books. In Six Flags Over Georgia, he delves deep into the personal collections of longtime park employees, as well as his own archives, to document the park as his fellow baby boomers so fondly recall it.
