Last year, I took the girls to Stone Mountain Park during spring break to check out its newest addition: Geyser Towers. They loved it. Geyser Towers features multiple levels of suspended rope bridges and net tunnels, which connect visitors to towering platforms that overlook a gushing geyser. Though quite a few kids got soaked, if yours aren’t in the mood to get that wet, there are ways to navigate the play space & stay reasonably dry.
FYI–Closed-toed shoes are required at Geyser Towers. Unless your kids like to wander around Stone Mountain Park in sopping-wet clothes, pack an extra outfit & pair of shoes, just in case (we didn’t need ours).
And Spring FUN Break includes extras, like Journey 2: The Mysterious Island-–The 4-D Experience, Wake the Bear improv show, April Fool’s Wacky Wonderland, & Wildlife Wonders’ Animal Babies show, to name a few.
We’ll be heading back to Stone Mountain Park this summer. The kids weren’t quite brave enough to try Sky Hike (an adventure course), but they’ve been psyching themselves up since last April, & I think they’re ready to give it a try.
Want to check it out on the cheap? You’ve got a few ways to save:
1) As always, if you’re planning to go more than once (and there’s so much to do, you’ll probably need to), buy the Mountain Membership, a.k.a. the season pass. In addition to unlimited admission, Mountain Members save on tickets to Snow Mountain & Ride the ducks, get an extra discount on a parking pass, & more. Even better:The Mountain Members PLUS pass includes tickets to Snow Mountain & Ride the Ducks, annual parking, & other perks. If you’re renewing your membership, wait until you get to the park to do it: Mountain Members PLUS passholders save $10 when they renew their membership at the park, and renewing Mountain Members save $7.
2) Thanks to an online offer, you can save up to 30% with a Family Value Pass. $125 buys four all-attractions Adventure passes, four refillable cups good for unlimited soft-drink refills, and four meal tickets.
3) Mountain Members & Mountain Member PLUS passholders can download & print a coupon to Bring a Friend free from March 30-April 13, 2013. There’s a limit of one complimentary Adventure Pass per Mountain Member per visit, and you’ll need to bring the coupon to the Crossroads Ticket Plaza & along with your pass to get the deal.
4) Thanks to an offer from Gas South, you can save up to 25% on an Adventure Pass, Mountain Member pass or Mountain Member Plus pass to Stone Mountain Park.
A note about parking: If you walk or ride a bike to Stone Mountain Park, there’s no parking fee. Otherwise, it’s $10. If you must drive & aren’t opting to buy a Mountain Member or Mountain Member PLUS pass, spring for the $35 annual permit if you you live near Stone Mountain Park & plan to visit at least four times a year, whether to take advantage of free special events or the park’s free outdoor activities and laser show.
