A huge water park, Six Flags White Water Atlanta offers a wide variety of slides and other ways to get wet. Note that the standalone park is not directly connected to an amusement park, but Six Flags Over Georgia is nearby.
Since it is run by Six Flags, it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of thrilling attractions to test your mettle. Perhaps the most challenging ride is the Dive Bomber. Intrepid passengers get into launch chambers over 100 feet in the air. When the trap door opens, they are released into a nearly 90-degree freefall. (That's almost straight down.)
Among other high-thrill attractions are the Tornado funnel ride and the Typhoon Twister bowl ride. More moderate thrills can be found on the Escape Chute, Caribbean Plunge, and Gulf Coast Screamer tube slides as well as the Wahoo Racer multi-lane mat-racing slide.
There are plenty of other body and tube slides that Six Flags characterizes as "family rides." There is also the Atlanta Ocean Wave Pool and the Little Hooch lazy river. Younger kids will want to head to Buccaneer Bay and Captain Kid’s Cove, two interactive water play areas.
Advance-purchase tickets are available online at the park's official site at a discount. Reduced price tickets available for kids under 48 inches. Single-day, group, and season pass tickets are available. Note that admission to Six Flags Over Georgia is not included and requires a separate ticket.
White Water offers a Flash Pass which, for an additional fee, allows guests to "virtually" hold their places in line. It effectively eliminates lines on the most popular slides and attractions for those willing to pay extra for the privilege.
What's to Eat?
The usual assortment of park food is available, including pizza, hamburgs, chicken tenders, smoked turkey legs, and fries. For sweet tooths, White Water offers funnel cake, ice cream, and smoothies. Note that the park does not allow guests to bring in food or beverages.
