This is the only part of my visit I liked, it was started by the same person who started the mount Rushmore in SD. The view is very good from the skylift, and carving is very large.

This is a beautiful example of bas-relief carving. In fact, it's the largest in the world. Even if you disagree with the subject matter (Confederate memorial), you can still appreciate the craftsmanship and artistry that is the Stone Mountain carving!!

The carving is amazing, it's hard to get a true perspective as to how big the carving actually is. You can get a good view of the carving without going up in the sky car. Well worth a visit if in the area.

Really short on time, did this place in between a family function event that spanned the morning and evening, so I had a few hours in the afternoon to kill, so I elected to go to Stone Mountain to see the carvings in the mountain. Be advised that there is a $15 parking fee, which is a bit steep in... More

This carving is amazing! Great view from the sky ride! So awesome what they can do to the carving during the laser show. Enjoy dinner on the lawn while waiting for the laser show.

We've been wanting to bring out kids here for the past few years, so we decided to come up for the Labor Day weekend. Tia is s great park for adults and kids. The Sky Hike, the Geyser Tower, train, and miniature golf were all fun. We took the tram to the top of the mountain then took the easy... More

This was a one-night stop over from Chicago to Orlando. I wish we had two days to see more and experience the 3200 acres of forest. We did experience Stone Mountain and the laser show in the evening. (Do not miss the show!) The mountain is a Confederate Memorial carving, the entire surface measures three-acres! You can take the Summit... More

The egos and blowing off someone else's work - it is amazing that the size of the star inside that you can compare to what is actually on the mountain. HUGE
