Six Flags Over Georgia Adds More Thrills with Hurricane Harbor Water Park
I have mentioned several times how much my family and I love Six Flags Over Georgia. We have been going regularly since the kids were old enough to enjoy the rides but my husband and I had been visiting the park long before that.
This year we absolutely cannot wait for the all new Hurricane Harbor that will be opening in late May 2014.
Six Flags Over Georgia will introduce a brand new multi-million dollar expansion and add a new in-park water park. This new area, known as Hurricane Harbor, is the largest expansion in the park’s 46-year history, and will feature several water attractions and guest amenities, including thrill slides and relaxing family fun. By adding an all-new water park, Six Flags Over Georgia will transport guests to a tropical paradise, full of wave pools, slippery slides, interactive playgrounds, and fun in the sun.
Sprawling across the landscape formerly occupied by Southern Star Amphitheater, the new water park will be themed around and invoke a remote Caribbean getaway. Lush tropical landscaping, beach scenery, and retail and dining locations will all provide the wonderful feeling of a warm beach paradise.
WHAT YOU WILL FIND AT HURRICANE HARBOR
The mainstay of the park will be Hurricane Bay which is a 38,000-square-foot, 800,000 gallon wave pool that simulates the feeling of ocean surf with a state-of-the-art wave system that produces waves up to four feet high.
The park will also feature Tsunami Surge, a dual-slide complex that drops riders down an enclosed five-story drop and whirls them around a 40-foot-wide bowl, followed by a zero-gravity plunge out the bottom.
Bonzai Pipelines is another multi-slide complex that challenges bold adventurers to soar through winding curves, dark tunnels, and swirling bowls. Paradise Island will be a children’s activity area of the water park, with an interactive water playground featuring miniature slides, drenching towers, and hundreds of interactive water elements.
PARADISE ISLAND (FORMERLY SKULL ISLAND)
Paradise Island is a re-designed interactive water play area for children. At the former Skull Island turned Paradise Island kids will enjoy mini-slides, drenching towers, tipping buckets, climbing nets plus a kid-sized wave pool as well as many other water features.

I am thrilled to be a Six Flags Super Mom. I am part of a mom blogger team that has been allowed access to the park, the employee areas and some of the secret locations still in development. I have been encouraged to share how I feel and what I learned about the park. I have been provided with a yearly pass and compensation for my time. All opinions are my own.
