If you’re an ATL thrill-seeker, this is the list for you!
When your neighbor is Florida, theme parks can certainly get overlooked. But ditch saving your dollar for that vacation in Orlando, and soak up the thrilling offerings right here in Georgia! From unbeatable rollercoasters to all-round family fun, our state has it all! Here are six incredible attractions you have to check out in Georgia:
1. Six Flags Over Georgia
It would be rude not to begin with our brilliant Six Flags. Six Flags Over Georgia has an array of thrill rides, kiddie rides, and family rides, making it the perfect day out! For those brave enough, take on the iconic Goliath, or try out the one-of-a-kind coaster Twisted Cyclone. There’s even a waterpark at this insane theme park!
2. Lake Winnepesaukah Amusement Park
In 1924, a husband and wife bought this property with hopes to turn it into a family swimming lake. Almost a century later and a lot has changed. Lake Winnepesaukah is an awesome day out for all the family. There’s a theme park and a water park, so it’s the perfect attraction for all year round fun! Ride the historic Cannonball Roller-coaster, which was build in 1967.
3. Wild Adventures Theme Park
For a theme park, water park, and zoo wrapped in one, check out Wild Adventures Theme Park. The 170-acre grounds are waiting to be explored. A world of family adventure featuring one of the South’s largest ride collections, including several large coasters!
4. Fun Spot America
With roots in Orlando, this amusement park has made its way over state lines, with an awesome park in Atlanta. Fun Spot boasts their largest four-story go-kart track, which is perfect for competitive families, or even a first date. There aren’t too many thrills, but it’s always a good time!
5. RushSouth Whitewater Park
Not an amusement park in the tradition sense, but just as thrilling! You’ll even experience white-knuckle thrills in Georgia’s gorgeous nature. RushSouth Whitewater Park features an unbeatable zipline, kayaks, whitewater rafting and more! The zipline is unique as it begins in Columbus and ventures out to Phenix City, Alabama. Crossing the Chattahoochee River twice, experience the only dual-zip lines that connect the two states, reaching speeds of up to 40mph!
6. White Water
If waiting in line for a rollercoaster in the heat of the summer sounds like hell, why not head to one of Georgia’s best waterparks? White Water has become an institutional part of summer in the ATL. Although Six Flags over Georgia has Hurrican Harbor, head to their stand alone water park White Water to make a splash this summer!
