Six Flags White Water is a 70-acre water park located in Marietta, just off of I-75 and minutes from Downtown Atlanta. As part of the Six Flags family and the largest waterpark in the South, White Water draws thousands of visitors every year and has topped the list of best water parks in the country several times. With numerous water-themed rides, games and activities, this fun-filled amusement park is the ideal place for those seeking a way to cool down during the spring and summer.
White Water is home to many of the best water rides in the Southeast. One of the most popular water slides is the Cliff Hanger which is one of the world’s tallest free-falls that drops nearly nine stories feet straight down.
Another crowd pleaser is the Run-a-Way River, which sends riders down several hundred feet of winding tunnels at varying speeds and dips. One of the more adventurous rides is the Tornado, which drops visitors into a 60-foot-tall water funnel and 5,000 gallons of churning water.
For those seeking family-friendly rides and games, White Water offers several fun-filled choices including the Little Hooch River (named after the nearby Chattahoochee River) which allows riders to lounge on their tubes and rafts while the water moves them around the park at a relaxing pace. Near the Little Hooch is the Activity Pool, which is the ideal place for the families with small children seeking fun and adventure in a safe environment.
For the littlest visitors is Buccaneer Bay, a water park within a water park for the kids. Kids rides include Tree House Island, which is a four story dream tree house featuring chutes, bridges and a 5,000 gallon water bucket as well as Captain Kid’s Cove, which includes more than 100 interactive activities for kids 12 and under.
In addition to the great rides, games and activities available, White Water also provides visitors with the opportunity to simply lay back and relax while soaking up some sun. Grab a lounge chair and sit by The Atlanta Ocean Wave Pool, or hop in and enjoy the sun in a 700,000 gallon pool with four-foot waves.
Just as in all Six Flags parks, there are a myriad of food choices available from pizza to ice cream to burgers and French fries. In addition, there are hot dogs, chicken tenders, turkey legs, Italian options, popcorn, pretzels, cotton candy, funnel cakes, grilled chicken, wings, lean wraps, veggie burgers, salads, a gluten-free menu, and more. Beer and wine is available at JB’s Express, located near the Atlanta Ocean Wave Pool.
In order to commemorate the White Water experience, souvenirs and other mementos can be purchased at several gift shops and specialty stores which are conveniently located at the entrance/exit of the park.
Atlanta is known for its scorching summers, so be sure to visit White Water to cool off and enjoy a family-friendly, fun-filled day in the sun.
