The carving is good. Many of the employees were well versed on the artifact. Your view is great whether you are in the cable car or on the ground.

To see and learn how this was done is amazing. The history of this spot absorbs you. In the memorial hall there is info and replicas of pieces of the carving so you can actually see how big it really is.

$15 parking fee, then if you want to ride any of the rides you can purchase different kinds of arm bands, otherwise you can visit the park, see the carving and gift shops

It usually begins at 9 pm and I can purchase the tickets online any time available. I purchased it at around 3pm when I was traveling to Stone Mountain.
Is this near the stone mountain park campground.
