This Atlanta, Georgia water park opens promptly at 10 a.m. as hundreds of fun lovers and adventure seekers stream onto the beach and boardwalk before assuming their place in line at more than a dozen rides, slides and attractions throughout our wild and wonderful waterpark entertainment district. Set on the shores of Lake Lanier, this vibrant Georgia theme park packs more than a half-mile stretch of white sandy beach, a tasty variety of restaurants and concessions, a five-story high HD Spectacular Screen, miniature golf course, jam-packed calendar of events and so much more. Celebrating an extended summer season this year, LanierWorld will be open on weekends through October 1, and open daily from May 22 through August 6.

To get the most out of your visit to our Georgia theme park during the 2017 season, get set to explore LanierWorld’s four distinct districts:


Big Beach:  Grab a lounge chair and soak up some rays, tackle the water-top Wibit inflatable obstacle course, catch a movie on the Spectacular Screen, bounce around Bucky’s Battle Ball Court, watch the little ones make a splash in the Fun Zone or test your bravery on three high thrills waterslides: Blackout, Fast Down and Double Down.

Boardwalk:  Peruse the food stands, sidle up to the Dockside Bar and enjoy the view, dine on pizza or pasta at Gianni’s Italian Bistro & Pizzeria, soar over the lake on our Thunderbolt Triple Zip, or tackle three more awesome waterslides: CAT4, Twister and Typhoon.


Family Fun Park:  Home to the Islands’ renowned Wildwaves Wave Pool, mom and dad can relax at the edge of the surf while your kids take to the waves. For adventurous guests, the Raging River waterslide awaits. Family Fun Park is also home to the brand-new eatery – The Break, created by the founders of Rico’s World Kitchen in Buford and The Brunch Apothecary in Dacula.


Sunset Cove: An attraction so FUN it has fun baked into its name, the FunDunker Playhouse offers three stories of interactive, splashtacular excitement for one and all with the challenging FunDunker Drop waterslide at center stage. The Cove is also home to our popular Sunset Cove Café (which boasts a new menu this year!), the Sunset Cove stage, Lakeside Links Miniature Golf Course, sand volleyball court and more.
