AUSTELL, Ga., Aug. 30, 2013 — Six Flags Over Georgia will break ground in September on a new tropically-themed water park, bringing it in line with other Six Flags around the country.
“Our entirely new water park inside of Six Flags Over Georgia will further support our goal of delivering a world-class destination for all ages,” said Dale Kaetzel, park president. “This multi-million dollar investment will be a ‘must do’ experience for anyone living in or visiting metro Atlanta.”
Dubbed Hurricane Harbor, the water park, is set to open in late May 2014. It will feature an 800,000 gallon wave pool, a multi-slide tower, and a single slide tower combining two extreme slide thrills, plus an interactive children’s water play area.
A tropical island theme will include new food locations, shopping, cabanas and expansive deck, lounge and shade amenities. “In the South, you can never have too many opportunities to cool off,” noted Kaetzel.
Six Flags White Water in Marietta, Georgia, featuring Typhoon Twister will expand its popular dive-in movie program during the 2014 season by adding a new entertainment stage featuring music.
Admission to Hurricane Harbor will be included in any one-day admission ticket or a Six Flags Over Georgia season pass. Six Flags White Water in Marietta and Six Flags Over Georgia will continue to offer combination passes.
Six Flags Over Georgia is selling 2014 season passes now at a discounted rate. These passes will provide unlimited visits for the remainder of the 2013 season and the entire 2014 season. Until October 27, 2013 guests who purchase a season pass four-pack will receive a free upgrade to a Gold Season Pass that includes free admission and free season parking to any Six Flags Theme Park.
