Six Flags Over Georgia- Hurricane Harbor Water Park

Hurricane Harbor Water Park is an in-park oasis for families spending the day at Six Flags Over Georgia. Free with general park admission, it is a nice spot to relax, escape the Georgia heat and enjoy some fun on beach-themed water rides.

  • Tsunami Surge– This five-story tall slide sends a 4-person tube down an enclosed section and ends with a wave wall that imitates the sensation of weightlessness.
  • Bonzai Pipelines– Three intertwined 41-foot tall water slides send single or double riders through enclosed twists, turns and pools.
  • Calypso Bay- A huge zero-entry pool with 4-foot ocean waves and several small fountains for children, tube rentals and complimentary life vests are available.
  • Paradise Play land– A soft surface children’s play area features 6 water slides housed in a giant Pirate Ship. This interactive structure has rope climbs, slides, water sprayers, water wheels and plenty of in-ground fountains. Watch out for the giant buckets, which can drop over 2,000 gallons of water on you!

Hurricane Harbor has one eatery, The Tidal Wave Café, which serves salads, pizza, hot dog and hamburger platters. Throughout the main park, you’ll find plenty of standard fare, along with healthier choices such as wraps and gluten free pizza, lasagna and brownies. You can also pack a cooler in the car, and take a short break for lunch in the parking lot!

Although outside food is not allowed in any area of the park, exceptions are made for food allergies and infants. Check with guest services at the front gate to have your items labeled before entering the park.

Two on-site bathhouses provide plenty of restrooms, curtained changing areas and even showers. By the end of the day, the floor can be really wet (and even a bit dirty). Bring flip-flops and be careful, it can be slippery!

Shady spots can be found around the play land, in the lounge chairs located at the back area of Calypso Bay or in one of the 11 swanky cabanas, which can be rented online and include food service.

Forget something? There is a beach themed retail spot inside the water park that sells everything from sunscreen to bathing suits.
