Updated on 6/10/2021
Many of Stone Mountain Park attractions are now open again. Some require a timed reservation slot — including the Summit Skyride and SkyHike.
You can still access the natural areas of the park, including:
- The Grist Mill & Covered Bridge
- Quarry Exhibit
- Hiking & Nature Trails, including the Walk-Up Trail, Carillon, and the Songbird Habitat & Trail.
REMEMBER: An annual parking pass or daily park entry fee of $20 is required for entry.
Fireworks for the Memorial Weekend event
From May 28 to 31, 2021, Stone Mountain Park commemorates Memorial Day with a special four-day event.
Attractions are open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. — including Dinosaur Explore, Summit Skyride, Scenic Railroad, SkyHike, and more.
Complete the evening with the Lasershow Spectacular, followed by a special salute to the troops, and epic fireworks all four nights of the holiday weekend. The Lasershow begins at 9:30 p.m. each night. The show features lights, iconic music, lasers, epic fireworks, and flame cannons.

The Lasershow is back
The bad news is, it’s no longer free with the price of parking.
This is now a socially-distant activity. You’ll purchase an 8-foot square on the lawn for $20 (members pay just $5).
Each square holds up to 4 adults. If you have 5 adults, you’ll have to purchase two squares. But if you have two adults and three kids under the age of 12, you should be fine.
You can still bring chairs and coolers, but everything must fit inside your square.
Masks are required while on the Lasershow Lawn.
You should buy your square online in advance — don’t count on space being available if you head to the park without a ticket.
Once you arrive, you’ll choose a marked square on a first-come, first-served basis.
Complete Lasershow details and FAQs here — we suggest reviewing this info before you go.
Discount available: If you’re buying an All-Attractions Pass, you can add a Lasershow square for just $5. Just put your Pass(es) in a cart — you’ll get a prompt asking you if you’d like to add the Lasershow.
Lasershow dates and times:
- Nightly from May 28 to August 1 at 9:30pm
- Saturdays only from August 7 to September 11 at 9:30pm
Get $5 off annual parking pass
This deal is currently not available, but often returns in the fall.
For a limited time, you can get the Stone Mountain annual parking pass for just $35, thanks to a Groupon deal.
You cannot use the deal to extend your current parking pass — only to buy a new 12-month pass. The pass is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.
You’ll have to take the Groupon voucher to the park gate to redeem it for your parking sticker, and you have till June 1, 2021 to do that.
The annual parking pass gets you access to public picnic areas, hiking and nature trails, children’s playground, walk-up trail, Quarry Exhibit, and the Confederate Hall Historical and Environmental Education Center. You’ll need separate passes or tickets for other park attractions.

Stone Mountain is never a cheap proposition for families. Whenever there are ways to save on parking or all-attractions passes, we’ll let you know here.
The daily parking fee alone is $20 per car, so often it’s worth it to pay $40 for the annual parking pass.
The annual pass runs for 12 months, starting with the month you made the purchase — it doesn’t reflect the Jan–Dec calendar year. In other words, you’ll get 12 full months of value, no matter when you buy the pass. You can purchase the parking pass at the park gate when you drive up to the admission booth.
