Six Flags Jam

AUSTELL, Ga. (AP) -- Turns out free admission was almost too good of an offer at Six Flags Over Georgia.

The amusement park had to close its gates early this morning after its free-admission offer created a traffic jam on a nearby interstate.

Cars began lining up as early as 3:30 a-m for the offer, which was scheduled to run for three hours starting at 6 a-m.

A few minutes after six, the parking lots already were full and the park closed its gates.

Some parents had let their children out of the car to walk down the interstate to get the free admission. But park officials turned those people away, saying people had to arrive in cars to take advantage of the offer.
