On a hot day, Stone Mountain Park can be really cool – especially if you climb the newest attraction, Geyser Towers.
The adventure, opened March 31 adjacent to the Sky Hike in the Crossroads area, involves suspended rope bridges and net tunnels on multiple levels that connect to platforms overlooking a geyser. Stick around and you’ll get doused with spray during a sporadic “eruption,” or move on and make a game of staying dry.
The attraction, which cost about $1 million, uses treated water from Stone Mountain Lake that’s safe for swimming.
Kids must be at least 32 inches tall to go on the wheelchair-accessible adventure, and those 32-40 inches must be accompanied by a guest 16 years old or older. Toddlers too young for the climb can splash in the attraction’s creek while Mom or Dad waits in the shade.
Admission to Geyser Tower is included in the One-Day Adventure Pass ($28 ages 12 and older, $22 ages 3-11, plus taxes). Families can save with the Family Value Pass and with annual Mountain Membership. stonemountainpark.com. 770-498-5690.
