Geyser Towers at Stone Mountain Park
Brand new to Stone Mountain Park is Geyser Towers. Multiple levels of suspended rope bridges and net tunnels connect you to towering platforms that overlook the gushing geyser. With its sporadic eruptions and multiple offshoots, you can play in the spray or stay high and dry. The options, and the fun, are all yours. As an option for the littlest guests, toddlers can splash in a trickling creek while mom and dad relax in the shade.
