FORT BENNING, Ga., (Aug. 6, 2014) -- For more than 45 years, Six Flags Over Georgia, located in Austell, Georgia, has provided guests with thrills, Family fun and entertainment.
Now, the park also provides a way for guests to cool off on the hottest Georgia days with the addition of a new water park, Hurricane Harbor.
Located inside the main Six Flags Over Georgia park, admission to Hurricane Harbor is included with the purchase of all Six Flags Over Georgia tickets.
The centerpiece of the new water park is the 38,000-square foot wave pool, Calypso Bay, featuring two massive wave generators that will create four-foot waves in eight different wave patterns to mimic the high surf of the ocean.
Other rides include Tsunami Surge, the world's first hybrid zero-gravity slide, which sends thrill-seekers down five stories to the splash pool waiting below. It begins with a drop through an enclosed tube into a whirlpool bowl with 360-degree curves and then out into a wave wall, for a moment of zero gravity.
Another attraction, Bonzai Pipelines, features three unique water slides that sit atop a 41-foot tower. The slides propel guests through 180- and 360-degree curves.
Finally, there is Paradise Island, a children's water playground, encompassing an entire acre of Hurricane Harbor with six water slides, multiple water buckets capable of dumping about 2,000 gallons of water and hundreds of interactive water elements such as water blasters, sprayers, fountains, water wheels and pumps.
