We had a season pass last year and went several times. Some of the best times to go is after work on a Friday, you still have time to hit all the slides with minimal lines and enjoy all the evening entertainment.

I did not expect the water park to be as large and offer as many slides and options of things to do for a Hotel but it was great and they had plenty of Life Guards around.

The water park is small beach is clean but I'm not one for swimming in Lanier, it is however a great place to fish and boat!!! Make sure you have a Georgia fishing license and it's up to date as DNR is out EVERYWHERE!
