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 nightly Lasershow runs through August 1st. After that it happens on Saturdays only, from Aug. 7 to Sept. 11. in 2021 — EXCEPT for Labor Day Weekend. From Saturday, Sept. 4th thru Monday, Sept. 6th, the Lasershow starts around 9:30 p.m., followed by spectacular fireworks.
The daily parking fee alone is $20 per car, so often it’s worth it to pay $40 for the annual parking pass.
The parking pass runs for 12 months, starting with the month you made the purchase. You can purchase the parking pass at the park gate when you drive up to the admission booth. HINT: Watch for the $5 OFF deal and buy your annual pass then.
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.
If you’re buying an All-Attractions Pass, you can add a Lasershow square for just $10. 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

Groupon deal: 33% off an All Attractions Pass + Lasershow
This Groupon offer is probably the best deal currently running — because Groupon does not add ticket fees.
The deal is $19.95 for an All Attractions Pass, and it includes a Lasershow square if you visit on a day the show is running (see the Lasershow schedule above — the Lasershow happens only on Saturdays in August and September).
You’ll have to redeem your Groupon voucher by August 29th. Be sure to read the fine print.
If you have kids 2 or under, they get in FREE.
Remember that parking ($20) is not included.
Sky Hike is not included in the pass, but you can buy a ticket for $5 per person.
NOTE: You can get up to 8% cashback from Rakuten (formerly Ebates) if you sign up and start a shopping session before you purchase your Groupon. You get the money at the end of each quarter and can have it sent to you via check or PayPal.
All Attractions Pass + Meal Deal
When there are no flash sales or Groupon deals running, a good value is the $31.95 All Attractions Pass + Meal package. This is available as an advance purchase, online only — not at the gate. You must purchase 24 hours in advance.
Unlimited refills of cold beverages and a meal are included with this ticket. Options include hamburger, hot dog, pizza slice (cheese or pepperoni), chicken sandwich, chef salad, chicken strips, BBQ pulled pork or chicken, French fries, and nachos. These meal choices are available at Marketplace.
Discounted All-Attractions Pass for adults
Buy your All-Attractions Pass online and save on adult tickets. The online price is $29.95, compared to $34.95 at the gate. Kids’ passes are $24.95 whether you purchase online or at the park.
This 30% discount on the All-Attraction pass brings the price down to $24.95. You must buy in person at the ticket plaza; it’s not available for advance purchase online. According to Stone Mountain’s website, the discount applies to “all active duty, veterans, and retired military personnel, spouses and dependents when valid military personnel IDs and dependent IDs are presented.”
Deals that include all attractions let you enjoy these options
