Yes, it is fun! And here are some facts you may not know about #HurricaneHarbor...

Metro Atlantans and vacationers have a new, splashing fun place to cool off this summer: Hurricane Harbor, the new waterpark NOW OPEN at Six Flags Over Georgia. Visitors to the Six Flags theme park can ride the slides and splash in the wave pool for no additional cost - it is included in park admission! Amelia and I brought some friends along to Media/VIP day this week and we had an amazing time.  

Our admission was complimentary for the preview event but as always, all opinions written here are 100% mine.

My friend Maria of MamaliciousMaria made this fantastic video from some of the press materials. It really gives you a sense of the excitement that awaits:

And here are a few fun facts about Hurricane Harbor at Six Flags Over Georgia - maybe some surprising things you did not know!

  • The waterpark is sparkling clean and looks like an old, quaint surfside town. 
  • Calypso Bay is a 38,000 square-foot high tech ocean attraction with hundreds of thousands of gallons of water to simulate a true surfside experience. This pool creates rolling waves that guests can enjoy all day.
  • Tsunami Surge is the world's first hybrid zero gravity slide! Four riders can barrel down an enclosed 5-story drop, including a 125-foot long bowl. Just as they think it is over, riders take on the Surge’s finale, which shoots them perpendicular to the ground and guests enter into a moment of zero-gravity. Note: I rode this with the kids and it is a blast! The 4-person tubes are very heavy and difficult to lug up the stairs - especially for me, as I was alone with two kids under age 8. A kind man behind me offered some muscle, which was very welcome. We wanted to ride this again and again, but the tube is really daunting so I had to move the kids to another attraction. Maybe I am just weak, but I would suggest riding this with teens who can help, or have at least TWO adults. 
  •  The children's area is huge, with a multitude of water features and several waterslides for all ages and sizes.
  • For the full VIP experience, 11 cabanas are available to rent. The $150 fee includes a private cabana with comfortable furniture, a private "coastline" of the wave pool, food service availability, and a water-stocked mini fridge. 
  • Hurricane Harbor represents the largest expansion in Six Flags Over Georgia's history - 7 acres!
  • Hurricane Harbor also means jobs for the area; Over 200 new seasonal jobs have been created for this new tropical paradise.
