Atlanta, GA — Six Flags Over Georgia today opens their all-new water park, Hurricane Harbor. This seven-acre expansion has four new water attractions, including the world's first hybrid zero-gravity slide. Best of all the water park is included with admission to Six Flags Over Georgia.

"Hurricane Harbor is unlike any other water park in the region, and will quickly become a must-visit destination for all of Atlanta and the southeast region," said park president Dale Kaetzel. "Our enormous water park will create a 'getaway atmosphere', as guests are able to cool off on several first-of-a-kind water attractions and then take flight on one of our 11 world-class roller coasters, all in the same day.

Attractions found at Hurricane Harbor include Tsunami Surge, a multi-rider tube slide that descends five stories. Riders begin in an enclosed tube that leads to a whirlpool bowl. Once flushed out the exit of the bowl riders drop down onto a massive wave wall for a moment of zero-gravity or weightlessness.

Tsunami Surge is a first of its kind attraction in the world.

Nearby, Six Flags has built the Calypso Bay wave pool. This 38,000 square-foot pool features man-made waves of up to four feet and with eight different patterns.

The four-story Bonzai Pipelines has three unique water slides that propel guests down through 180- and 360-degree curves.

For young children Paradise Island is a water playground on an entire acre with multiple, dumping water buckets, interactive water features like blasters, sprayers, fountains, water wheels, and six water slides.

"We expect Hurricane Harbor to have a significant economic impact to the community as it draws thousands of guests from near and far, which should positively impact future development in the area, added Kaetzel."
