Hurricane Harbor Opens at Six Flags over Georgia

Temperatures are rising and waterparks are finally opening for the summer season after what was a brutally cold winter for many. Six Flags over Georgia recently held a preview event for its brand-new, in-park Hurricane Harbor waterpark.

Alex at Thrillography attended the event and took some excellent photos of the beautiful tropical-themed oasis:


According to the website, Six Flags over Georgia’s Hurricane Harbor “features 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 will include new food locations, shopping, cabanas and expansive deck, lounge and shade amenities.”


The waterpark is located near the back of Six Flags over Georgia, so you’ll have a bit of a walk once you get to the park. Be sure to bring decent walking shoes.


The Skull Island water play structure that originally opened in 2005 was incorporated into Hurricane Harbor and has been renamed Paradise Island.


The Bonzai Pipelines complex features three twisting-and-turning colorful slides.


This angry shark is on hand to greet (not eat) Hurricane Harbor guests.


The centerpiece of the waterpark is 38,000-square-foot Calypso Bay wave pool, which generates waves up to four feet in height.


Hurricane Harbor also features a world’s first waterslide: Tsunami Surge. Never again will you be forced to choose between a toilet-bowl slide and a half-pipe slide. This slide features a toilet-bowl element AND the insane halfpipe-like “Tornado Wave” element seen above.


Hopefully we’ll see more slide combos like this in the future.

Entry to Hurricane Harbor is free with general admission (or a season pass). If you’re looking for even more waterpark fun in the Atlanta area, the nearby standalone Six Flags White Water is still open for soaking.
