School’s out and it seems like only yesterday we were out and about having fun during Spring Break. Which is kinda good as I replay in my mind all the fun we had visiting the all new Geyser Towers at Stone Mountain Park.
Geyser Towers is an amazing new water/climbing attraction. At a staggering height of over two stories, this new attraction is the first of it’s kind.
Multi-level suspended rope bridges, netted platforms, geyser fountains shooting water in all directions are just the answer to Georgia’s hot summer days. Not sure water and climbing go together? You will be convinced after your first visit!
Stone Mountain Park has invested $1 million dollars in the newest addition to the park’s Crossroads Village fun town. The attraction is perfect for the whole family. Everyone will enjoy getting soaked as they maneuver through the multiple cargo net bridges and rope ladders, and for safety closed toed shoes are required. Even kids as small as 32″ can partake in the fun when accompanied by a responsible person, 16 years or older. Now personally, I had no intention of getting wet, so I came prepared with a sweet helper, Haille, for the day.
Baby and Haille had a super time navigating the towers and cargo nets. Had I known that it was actually possible to strategically go through the whole thing without getting wet, as displayed by, Haille. I may have attempted to take Jed to the top. And then again…maybe not.
Jed didn’t have the opportunity to climb Geyser Towers, but there was plenty of other areas to keep him thrilled and occupied. We all took a little break from wandering the park to see Yogi Bear’s 4D Adventure movie (fully air conditioned theater, and provides a nice escape from the scorching Georgia heat), and then had an unbelievable experience at the baby animal show holding a baby kangaroo! Jed holding a baby kangaroo…oh, the cuteness!
After a breezy and relaxing ride on the train, and a long stretch of running, throwing, shooting and catching foam balls while playing in the Great Barn, we were finally ready to head home. My two littles succeeded in exhausting poor sweet, Haille. I am guessing next time, Baby will definitely want to tackle the three-story adventure course, Sky Hike! I sure hope Haille is available to come along. Strap me in the tallest roller coaster and I am game, but harnesses and rope bridges are not on this mom’s agenda.
We will definitely be heading back to Stone Mountain again soon now that school is out! Hopefully we will see you and your family there too!
Oh, and don’t forget to check out Stone Mountain Park’s Facebook page and Stone Mountain Park’s Twitter page for coupons! Who doesn’t like to save a bit extra cash to make your summer activity funds stretch a little further.
