INDOOR WATERPARKS IN GEORGIA

INDOOR WATERPARKS IN GEORGIA

Although Georgia has only one indoor water park – Great Wolf Lodge – we do have indoor pools that offer more than just water to splash around in.

Here are a couple of indoor swimming pools that are more like mini-water parks than just the standard swimming pool. If you know others, leave us a comment and let us know!

GREAT WOLF LODGE

Details: 150 Tom Hall Parkway, LaGrange, GA | Great Wolf Lodge, Ga: We Answer Your Top 30 Most-Asked Questions [VIDEO] | Worth the Splurge: A Great Wolf Lodge Cabana

411: The mega waterpark and hotel opened in LaGrange in 2018, and it is still as amazing as it was opening day.  This place is filled with awesome slides, a kids play area, a wave pool, an outdoor pool and hot tub, and a lazy river ride that isn’t too lazy. We’ve also visited the GWL in Concord, NC, and you can read about that in this post, where we talk about how to save money at GWL – with tips that apply to any location.

SOUTH COBB AQUATIC CENTER

Details: 875 Six Flags Dr. Austell, GA  | 770-739-3180 | Website

411: The South Cobb Aquatic Center is located just off I-20, a few miles from Six Flags Over Georgia.

There is a zero-entry portion for the little ones, a free swim area, and diving board for the brave swimmers. In addition you’ll find a lazy river, a 3-story slide, and play structure including silly shower, dump tank, small slide, and waterfall.

The facility is nicely kept, locker rooms are clean and include showers, bathrooms, and lockers. A birthday party room is also available.

BETHESDA PARK AQUATIC CENTER

Where: 225 Bethesda Church Road, Lawrenceville | 678-924-6334 | Website

411: Bethesda Park Aquatic Center features an indoor leisure/water park pool with beach entry, a giant waterslide that exits and then reenters the building, a river channel, hydrotherapy benches, water play structures, vortex, ceiling spray, and a four-lane instructional pool and wet classroom — plus water basketball and volleyball! Whew!

They require parents to be in a bathing suit in the water with young children and everyone needs to pay regardless of whether or not you are swimming, but the price isn’t bad — especially for a day of fun that will wear everyone out.

I was told last year that admission is half price one hour before closing, but have not been able to confirm that – so if you go late, might want to ask.

BOGAN PARK AQUATIC CENTER

Details: 2723 North Bogan Road, Buford 30519 | 770.614.2063 | Website

411: The Bogan Park Aquatic Center has an indoor competition pool, an indoor leisure pool with zero-depth entry, a giant water slide, and water play structures.

411: This pool offers swimming lessons to the public, but otherwise, you must be a member or guest to enjoy this pool, which was constructed for the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. Memberships are available to anyone with an affiliation to Georgia Tech, student, faculty, or alumni.

The pool area features the leisure pool (which is comprised of six, 25-yard lanes), a 184′ water slide, a lazy river, free play area, and a 16-person spa.
