While Six Flags Over Georgia doesn't include a full-featured water park like some of the other Six Flags properties (although there is a separate water park across town Six Flags White Water), it does offer the flashy, splashy delights of Skull Island. Featuring six water slides, three giant water-dumping towers, and hundreds of interactive water elements, Skull Island is more than suited for those who wish to get suited (bathing suited, that is).
As with all Six Flags location, the Georgia park offers Fright Fest. The annual Halloween celebration includes haunted mazes, special shows, and other features to mark the holiday.
