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.
The building of this attraction will be the second installation of its kind in the world and the only one in North America to integrate water features. The other similar structure, located at Sea World Australia, does not include water.
Construction began in November. Geyser Towers is set for an opening on March 31, the start of the Spring Break for many metro Atlanta counties. The estimated project cost is just under $1 million.
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.
