Summer Waves water park on Jekyll Island, Georgia
Hurricane Harbor at Six Flags Over Georgia
Six Flags Over Georgia opened Hurricane Harbor in summer 2014. It includes a 38,000-square-foot wave pool, a multi-slide tower, and a "world's first" single slide tower combining two extreme slide thrills, plus an interactive children's water play area. A tropical island theme includes food locations, shopping, cabanas and expansive deck, lounge and shade amenities.
Summer Waves Water Park on Jekyll Island
Take a break from the sandy beaches on Jekyll Island and fly down the water slides with exciting names like Pirate's Passage, Nature's Revenge, and Force 3. My boys like to mix the coasters with a lazy lap around Turtle Creek at Summer Waves Water Park. Little ones will love getting doused by giant water buckets in the Splash Zone and braving the much tamer slides at Shark Tooth Cove.
Splash Island at Wild Adventures in Valdosta
This southwest Georgia theme park includes Splash Island Water Park. Ride the waves in the 20,000-square-foot wave pool, or take a thrilling spill down the water slides at Bonzai Pipelines. Share the fun on a multi-person raft on Kona Cliffs, and relax on a lazy float on Paradise River. To avoid the longer lines, hit the water park in the morning before the heat of the day, and treat the family to a private cabana, where you can take a break in the shade.
