I serve in a compensated role as a Six Flags Supermom. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are strictly my own, as always.
I spent this past Saturday looking long at hard at the place where Hurricane Harbor is being constructed at Six Flags Over Georgia. I even got to get up close and personal and see how everything was coming along. As of two days ago, it looked like this:
Oh my, they certainly have their work cut out for them! But the crew I met was confident about their progress, even with all the setbacks that the tough winter provided this year (we don’t do snow in the South, y’all!).
Let me show you around a bit!
This is Paradise Island (formerly Skull Island) and it is a place that kids of all ages absolutely love! This interactive water play area serves as the entrance to Hurricane Harbor, and has dozens of slides, water elements, and lots of fun. Last year my kiddos spent the better part of the day in the park right here!
But starting this year, there will be SO MUCH MORE when it comes to water fun at Six Flags Over Georgia.
As you pass Paradise Island, you’ll come to Tradewinds, which will have some fantastic shopping (forgot your swimsuit or your towel? No problem!). You’ll also see Tidal Wave Cafe, which will offer a fun variety of yummy things to eat. After all, you work up an appetite when playing in the water! This area is also going to have a bath house for changing, as well as locker areas if you want to rent one to stow away all the things you don’t want to get wet.
The Six Flags Supermoms were all pretty excited about what we saw next. The centerpiece of the 7 acre Caribbean getaway inside Six Flags has got to be Calypso Bay, the GIGANTIC wave pool. It has 38,000 square feet and will hold 800,000 gallons of water and produce 4 foot waves. It is going to be THE place to have fun in the sun at Six Flags this year. You can find me there on one of their loungers, to be sure!
For all you brave souls out there, this is going to be the ride for you. Tsunami Surge will be a tower of slides up against this hill. It will include a 5 story drop and a moment of zero gravity. Who needs to go to space camp? Just head down Tsunami Surge to experience weightlessness! 🙂
If you head to Six Flags Over Georgia in the next few weeks, be sure to ride on the Sky Buckets, as you’ll get a great birds-eye view of many of the slide pieces for Tsunami Surge, as well as for the Bonzai Pipelines, which is another awesome water slide element you’ll find at Hurricane Harbor. I’m sure glad I’m not in charge of putting those puzzle pieces together!
Hurricane Harbor may look like this today, but it is coming together VERY quickly, and in just 59 days, it will be an incredible tropical oasis right outside of Atlanta, Georgia. And the best part? Hurricane Harbor admission is included with your park ticket price. Are you ready to make some waves???
