We attended a company picnic with our granddaughter, this was our first time here and I must say it was awesomeness! The parking & admission was free, however the cost for kids is $32 & adults $42, not including the zipline and food. But it was truly a very good time. Everything you need for a fun beach day is...

This is a great way to spend the day with the family. Umbrellas are available for rent, so it's nice that they don't run out if you are willing to pay for them. There is also locker rental for wallets and cell phones, There is a tide pool, a swimming beach, a zip line, and several water slides. The slides... More

I live here and come out to the park every summer and its a blast! So many new attractions like the zip line and new rides but love the people watching and ending up at Sunset Cove for a beer and food. Can be expensive so watch your belongings or lock them up at lockers around- and be prepared to... More

We took our 3 children ages 11, 9 and 9 to Lake Lanier Waterpark last week. They had a great time. Lots of great water slides and rides. Even some fun obstacle activities on the lake. We felt safe with good crowd controls and lifeguards. Several options for food as well. We plan to return again this summer.

Spent the day at Lake Lanier Beach and Water Park. What a great day for the whole family! A resort feel at a water park- what a concept! Clean, nice, upscale. Lots of variety including a zip line, a lake beach, water rides and a water obstscle course. The adults had as much fun as the kids! It felt like... More

We went on a Tuesday and it wasn't really crowded. We were able to get on a lot of the rides by the time we made it to the line. The only waits were for the zip line, obstacle course, Cat 4, and Raging River. There is a lot to do here for all ages. The food wasn't as bad... More

A trip here can be a great day if you're well-prepared. Read below and visit the website to learn more. 1. Don't pay full price. There are coupons and ways to save money at the gate if you do your homework. Today, for example, you could receive 1/2 admission with canned food donations. Also, if you have older children and...

Water park had great rides and choices. Discount coupons available at publix. Park was well staffed, safe, and clean. Only problem is they don't allow coolers so you have to hoof it back to car for picnic lunch. Paying for parking should be complementary for price of ticket. We would go back again.
