So darn hot | PSF
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.

I have been living in Atlanta for about 10 years now and I have only been to stone mountain once I must go back and see all the new attractions. Glad you all had a great 4th
Yes, you should! Note it’s really hot there right now, though!
Love this! Looks like so much fun and we will definitely be checking out the barn! We already bought the family pass for the day so I think we are set! Oh and I will be sure to pack an extra set of clothes!! Thanks for sharing!! 🙂
Yes, the barn is AWESOME! It’s a little hard to tell it’s a barn, so just ask somebody to help you find it. Basically, you walk it the park after getting your tickets and it’s all the way to to the left.
And, yes, extra clothes would be good, too (Shannon probably won’t be able to go into the Geyser towers by herself).
My cousins force-marched me up Stone Mountain one Easter….although they failed to mention a water park anywhere around there….or that I could have opted for the gondola ride up!
It’s not really a water park…just an attraction and it’s new this year…so only be mad at them for the force marching and the lack of mention of the gondola!
That looks like sud a fun place, and a great way to keep cool 🙂
If I wasn’t wearing E in the Ergo, I would have been in there, too!
Oh man, it has be HOT HOT HOT!!! Looks like fun!
Oh, yes…like 100+!
Looks like a lot of fun – great way to stay cool on a hot day!
Yes, and since they had jeans shorts on they stayed wet a little longer and helped them stay cool.
That place looks pretty awesome! Your girls are adorable! Glad they were able to cool off some, it has been so hot everywhere lately!
It was pretty cool! And, thank you! Most of the time we agree!
Now THAT looks like something WE need around here! When the heat index is 110, a geyser would really rock!!! Looks like you guys had a great time!
Yes, our index was about 110 last week, too!
Sounds like you had a fabulous day… and the smiles on the girls faces show it for sure.
They like it when we go fun places:)
That sounds like so much fun. I don’t think we have anything like that around here. We have several water parks but nothing like yours. I still think that you need to plan a summer trip to So Cal and stay at the Staffy spa while you visit all the touristy spots. I don’t have a geyser but I could squirt the hose on you while you are in the pool. Have a great week. I hope it cools down for you. Hugs, Grammy
I bet you do have some fun places..this isn’t really a waterpark…what you see was the whole she bang!
You know if we could get there, we could definitely stay at the Staffy Spa!
