It’s been HOT here. Like we’ve had the highest temperature in the history of recording temperatures here. Our AC has been working overtime. And, we’ve been hot. I’m certain I’ve been in a perpetual state of sweat for the last two weeks. It’s not pretty.
But, we’ve also had to get out of the house. Or else we will go stir crazy…and that’s not pretty easy.
Knowing that Mr. Serious had the 4th and 5th off, I made plans a while ago for us to head to Stone Mountain and experience Geyser Towers. The heat didn’t disappoint, so playing in water was a good plan.
I asked the girls for a quick pre-wet picture.
Then, they got all “daddy come with us”. And, he was like “no. Well, okay.”
Then, they took off on their own.
And went all the way up this side tower thingy, too. (see that tower on the left there with the person in the red standing next to it? That thing is one of the geysers. Stand there and you get soaked!)
They went all over the towers and climbed the rope ladders and the loved it. They got soaked in no time with the various squirts of water and other geysers throughout. (and, yes, this time I was prepared with extra clothes!) They played for about 20 minutes, and then they were ready for lunch. Of course right after eating, they wanted to go back!
Instead of going back in the towers, we found a “barn” right near the parking lot. We had never been in before, and wow, that really wowed the girls socks off. And, ours, too. It was 4 levels of fun with AIR CONDITIONING! These vacuum tubes sucked up balls and shot them all around. It was a hoot. I want a vacuum thingy for their toys. They were picking stuff up like crazy. And, then it had a 4-story slide that was good for adults, too. I can’t believe we hadn’t discovered this before. We spent so much time here that we didn’t take the cable car up to the top of the mountain! (FYI, you will need your ticket/armband to get in here as well!)
We’ve climbed to the top before…whew, that’s a workout and stayed for the fireworks. It’s all fun! Make a day of it if you are planning to go.
Geyser Towers features multiple levels of suspended rope bridges and net tunnels connecting visitors to towering platforms that overlook a gushing geyser.
- While climbing through the structure, sporadic eruptions and multiple offshoots of water will splash guests to keep cool, or climbers can challenge themselves to stay high and dry.
- The experience is ideal for the entire family as it gives adults ample room and the perfect amount of excitement for kids. As an option for the youngest guests, toddlers can play in a trickling creek while mom and dad relax in the shade.
- With water conservation in mind, Geyser Towers will use a closed loop system that borrows water from the Stone Mountain Lake and does not use county water, similar to the park’s popular Snow Mountain attraction. The water goes through a treatment process making it potable to meet standards suitable for people, similar to swimming pool water.
