Six Flags Over Georgia Announces Largest Expansion In Park History

AUSTELL, Ga., Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Six Flags Over Georgia, the premier theme park in the South, announced today that it will soon break ground on Hurricane Harbor, an all-new tropically-themed water park. Hurricane Harbor will be free with park admission and completely transform the area formerly occupied by the Southern Star Amphitheater while offering wet and wild thrills for guests of all ages.

"Our entirely new water park inside of Six Flags Over Georgia will further support our goal of delivering of a world-class destination for all ages," said Dale Kaetzel, park president. "When combined with our continuing focus on creating a safe, family-friendly environment in our park, this multi-million dollar investment will be a 'must do' experience for anyone living in or visiting Metro Atlanta."

"This year's investment in Hurricane Harbor complements many other economic initiatives in Cobb County and is the first step of our multi-year investment plan that includes future expansion of the water park into an adjacent parcel of undeveloped land," added Kaetzel.

Hurricane Harbor, set to open in late May 2014, will include an 800,000 gallon 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 addition of a huge new water park will add a whole new dimension that our guests have been asking for. In the South, you can never have too many opportunities to cool off and Hurricane Harbor is the perfect complement to our world class ride and entertainment package," noted Kaetzel.

Six Flags White Water in Marietta, Georgia, featuring Typhoon Twister new in 2013, will also expand its "guest-popular" Dive-in Movies during the 2014 season by adding an all new entertainment stage featuring music and new ways to enjoy the legendary Atlanta Ocean wave pool. Six Flags White Water will operate from mid-May through Labor Day and continue to offer a total water park experience, serving guests with thrills from mild to wild.

Construction plans for Hurricane Harbor are well underway and groundbreaking of the site will begin in September. The new Hurricane Harbor will kick off its' inaugural weekend with an opening spectacular that will be an historic event and remain open throughout the summer season.
