This place has the market cornered on Waterparks in North Georgia, and they do a great job entertaining the family for a full day, or a whole summer if you get the season pass. But hot dog, it's WAY too expensive. Most of the rides are fun (though they're all pretty old now), they have putt putt and a fun... More

I went there 2 summers ago with family, aunt and uncle in their 30s and two kids, one 5 one 6 years old, also a newborn. The park was SO much fun. We would never get bored of it, everyone had fun, wave pool was really fun and also the waterslides, and the lines weren't even that busy! Also, best... More

The last time I visited Lake Lanier Islands was when I had teenagers (years and years ago). It was a great place, cost was expensive at that time, maybe 30.00 per person (and there were coupons available) and 150.00 for the family pass for the summer. There was a large beach with boardwalk, and a wave pool, and slides, and... More

The water in the lake was pretty dirty with trash flowing. The pools, however, were very nice. Especially loved the waves pool. Great play zone for little kids too.

This place was clean and fun but way too overpriced. We paid $11.25 for a hotdog, water and chips. $15 to get in the gate and $44 for admission. Too pricey!

I grew up going to this water park and enjoyed my visit as an adult as well! I noticed some of the slides were chipping and needed attention. My favorite ride was closed which was disappointing. The wait for tubes was a little long even though the park was not very full! The only good thing about that was the... More

The entrance fee to the water park is high, but there is a LOT to do at this waterpark. There are 7 sets of water slides, a wave pool, kids play area, wibit (an inflatable obstacle course mid lake), and a beach where you can watch a giant 5 story tv. Because there are so many offerings we did not... More
