Six Flags Over Georgia announces largest expansion in park history

AUSTELL, Ga. — Six Flags Over Georgia will soon break ground on Hurricane Harbor, an all-new tropically-themed water park.

Hurricane Harbor will be free with park admission and completely transform the area formerly occupied by the Southern Star Amphitheater while offering wet and wild thrills for guests of all ages.

“Our entirely new water park inside of Six Flags Over Georgia will further support our goal of delivering of a world-class destination for all ages,” said Dale Kaetzel, park president. “When combined with our continuing focus on creating a safe, family-friendly environment in our park, this multi-million dollar investment will be a ‘must do’ experience for anyone living in or visiting Metro Atlanta.”

“This year’s investment in Hurricane Harbor complements many other economic initiatives in Cobb County and is the first step of our multi-year investment plan that includes future expansion of the water park into an adjacent parcel of undeveloped land,” added Kaetzel.

Hurricane Harbor, set to open in late May 2014, will include an 800,000 gallon wave pool, a multi-slide tower, and a “world’s first” 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.
