“Remember when?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

All that was important in the 80's was fun and sun. I remember meeting nice young ladies here and working my magic. I remember seeing concerts here like Bryan Adams and in those days i lived close by on druid hills road.

“Fun waterpark and a good add day to BushGardens”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

Went there years ago, but remember enjoyng it. The rides were good though sometimes a little overwhelming. If you don't mind being out in the sun all day and going on sometimes scary rides, go and enjoy.
