Hurricane Harbor Water Park Opens at Six Flags Over Georgia
Our latest traveling adventure lead us to Austell, Georgia to Six Flags Over Georgia. The kids and I had the opportunity to be apart of the Grand Opening Ceremony for the newest addition to Six Flags Over Georgia which happens to be a water park called Hurricane Harbor. What’s really cool is this new addition is included in your general admission. How awesome is that? We welcome the hot months to come and with the Hurricane Harbor waterpark you can ride the coolest rides at Six Flags then take a break and cool off in the water park. The kids were just as excited as I was to see just what Six Flags had in store for us with the new addition. My sons ages are 7, 11 & 18 and they all accompanied me to the Grand Opening and although I have never considered purchasing Season Passes after this adventure I am sure giving that a second thought.
Hurricane Harbor, the largest expansion in the park’s 47-year history, boasts four new water attractions, including the world’s first hybrid zero-gravity slide, spans seven acres. The attraction houses something for everyone in your family. My oldest and middle son feel in love with the Tsunami Surge which starts with a drop through an enclosed tube into a whirlwind bowl with 360 degree curves and then out into a massive wave wall, for a moment of zero gravity.
My youngest son took advantage of the 38,000 square foot wave pool, Calypso Bay which features two massive wave generators that create four foot waves in eight different wave patters to mimic the surf of the ocean. Then there’s the unique water slides that sit atop a 41 foot tower at Bonzai Pipelines that had my kids screaming as they barreled down through 180-and 360- degree curves that they absolutely could not stop going back to over and over again. I had to pry my little ones from this ride. We decided to ride a few of the rides at Six Flags and then we returned to enjoy Paradise Island which is an acre of Hurricane Harbor with six slides which make you scream because they are each different along with multiple water buckets that dump 2,000 gallons of water and a host of interactive water elements which include sprayer, water wheels and water blasters. What a great way to spend your day at Six Flags Over Georgia so be sure to pack your bathing suit and swimming trunks and get ready for an adventure of your life.
