The Atlanta Metro Region is home for most Georgia amusement and water parks; however, there are other really good attractions scattered across the state.
An outstanding water park is located within the 1,100-acre Lake Lanier Resort
, which is located in the Northeast Georgia Mountains Region 45 miles north of Atlanta. The Beach and WaterPark
at Lake Lanier Islands Resort has a number of water rides and attractions for kids and adults. There is also a half-mile long sandy beach on the lake for your enjoyment.
In the Historic High Country Region near Rossville is Lake Winnepesaukah, a traditional lakeside theme park with a number of thrill rides, family rides and kiddie rides. Park admission fees also include concerts at the park, when scheduled.
In the Plantation Trace Region of South Georgia is the Wild Adventures Theme Park
near Valdosta. This will be a big hit for children and teens – but we’ll bet that even the adults will have fun. There are rides and shows for all ages, or you can see exotic animals in their natural habitat. Recently Splash Island Water Park was added and boasts of waterslides, a wave pool, and a river ride. Wild Adventures also features live concerts with top performing entertainment from country, rock, pop and gospel.
In the Georgia Coast Region the Summer Waves Water Park on Jekyll Island has some long and towering water slides, a wave pool, a kiddie pool with two slides, and a lazy river ride.
In the Atlanta Metro region Six Flag operates three Georgia amusement and water parks. Just west of Atlanta is Six Flags over Georgia
, a world-class theme park. The park has eleven coasters and other big rides to thrill even the expert thrill-seeker. There are a number of other rides for children and the non-daredevils, shows and entertainment, and a water park. Six Flags also operates a full-fledged water park in Marietta called Six Flags White Water Park Atlanta; and next door to White Water Park is American Adventures, a family park featuring rides such as Tilt-A-Whirl, Scrambler and bumper cars as well rides for small children.
Also in the Atlanta Metro Region is Sun Valley Beach and Water Park located in Powder Springs just northwest of Atlanta. Just 20 miles east of Atlanta in Lithonia, the Grand Empire Indoor Water Park is scheduled to open in mid-2009. Then there is Stone Mountain Park
that has beaches, four water slides, a steam train, skylift and other attractions. In Jonesboro The Beach at Clayton County International Park has
a water trampoline, skim board area, adventure kiddie pool, 5 water slides, and a 6-acre swimming lake with geyser fountain.
For a different kind of amusement park try the Malibu Grand Prix in Norcross which offers bumper cars, Grand Prix racing, miniature golf, batting cages and go carts. Dave & Busters also has two Georgia locations (Marietta and Duluth) with over 200 games to play.
