Hurricane Harbor is going to be the destination of choice next summer for guests of all ages.

Six Flags Over Georgia just announced that they will be building a tropical-themed water park inside of Six Flags. The water park will be free with the general park admission ticket and will offer the “world’s first” single slide tower combining two extreme slide thrills, among many new water features.

"Our entirely new water park inside of Six Flags Over Georgia will further support our goal of delivering of a world-class destination for all ages," said Dale Kaetzel, park president. "When combined with our continuing focus on creating a safe, family-friendly environment in our park, this multi-million dollar investment will be a 'must do' experience for anyone living in or visiting Metro Atlanta."

The ground breaking of the new site will be in September, although construction is currently underway. Plans for opening Hurricane Harbor is set for Late May 2014. Six Flags is currently the sixth largest employer in Cobb County.

"This year's investment in Hurricane Harbor complements many other economic initiatives in Cobb County and is the first step of our multi-year investment plan that includes future expansion of the water park into an adjacent parcel of undeveloped land," added Kaetzel.
