Six Flags Over Georgia Adds More Thrills in 2014 with Hurricane Harbor Water Park

Recently we were invited to opening of the new Hurricane Harbor at Six Flags Over Georgia which is the largest expansion in the park’s 47-year history. We were thrilled to be standing by as park president Dale Kaetzel spun the wheel to start the waves flowing into Calypso Bay (see more below). Here is what he had to say,

“Hurricane Harbor is unlike any other water park in the region, and will quickly become a must-visit destination for all of Atlanta and the southeast region. Our enormous water park will create a ‘getaway atmosphere’, as guests are able to cool off on several first-of-a-kind water attractions and then take flight on one of our 11 world-class roller coasters, all in the same day. We expect Hurricane Harbor to have a significant economic impact to the community as it draws thousands of guests from near and far, which should positively impact future development in the area.”

ABOUT HURRICANE HARBOR

Hurricane Harbor is a 7-acre water park inside of Six Flags Over Georgia that is free with admission. This water park includes several large water slides, a wave pool that is 38,000 square feet, and an interactive play area for children that is 2,000 square feet. There are multiple sitting and eating areas within Hurricane Harbor as well as rest rooms, showers, and other basic water park amenities.

THE SLIDES AND ATTRACTIONS AT HURRICANE HARBOR

The Bonzai Pipelines are 3 water slides that are almost a combined thousand feet long. Two of these slides are single-rider inner tube rides that feature sharp turns and changes between light and darkness. The third slide is called the Tsunami Surge and is the only hybrid zero-gravity slide in the world. On this slide, four riders sit on a double inner tube and slide down five stories worth of pipe that ends in a zero-gravity drop into a splash pool.

Calypso Bay is a wave pool filled with 800,000 gallons of water. Wave simulators generate waves that are 4 feet tall; swimmers can ride these waves with or without inner tubes. Water depth ranges from very shallow to 6 feet, making this pool suitable for most ages. The pool’s wave generators are programmed to simulate 8 different wave patterns, so swimmers get to experience waves modeled after those formed by the ocean.

FOOD, CABANAS & MORE

Hurricane Harbor offers multiple food and drink options. People can purchase burgers, nachos, pizza, and other beach-type fare from the Tidal Wave Café and can eat the food in various deck and lounging areas within the water park. Another possible eating option is to rent a cabana, as this option can provide anything from food and drink service to a full meal depending on the type of package purchased. Hurricane Harbor has a beach store called Tradewinds Shopping plus places to rent lockers and tubes. Restrooms, a shower and changing area, and a first aid station are also provided.

THE FORMER SKULL ISLAND IS NOW PARADISE ISLAND

Paradise Island is one acre of interactive play stations, water slides, and water-dumping towers geared towards children. This water playground features 6 water slides that are designed for a younger age than those slides that make up the Bonzai Pipelines. The water play center features climbing nets, mounted water guns, mazes, and other obstacles for children to navigate. Children can also stand under three drenching towers topped with buckets that tip over when full of water.
