Margaritaville at Lanier Islands Opening Georgia’s First Waterslide Coaster in 2024

The Water Park in Margaritaville at Lanier Islands is getting an upgrade in 2024. This family attraction north of Atlanta is introducing Georgia's first waterslide coaster, Apocalypso! This is the largest expansion Margaritaville at Lanier Islands has made in decades. This will bring the total water slide count to 15 next year.

Apocalypso is only one part of a tower, including four new slides. Described as “the ultimate fusion waterslide,” it combines plummeting drops and explosive uphill climbs. In addition to the slides, new amenities are being added to the Camp Margaritaville RV resort. To celebrate, Margaritaville at Lanier Islands is offering a flash sale on season passes!

Georgia's First Waterslide Coaster – Apocalypso


Apocalypso is the focal point of this combination of waterslides. The attraction promises an average water speed of 30 mph over 418 feet of slide. The ride boasts the largest “blasterango” drop in the U.S. What does that mean? Blasterango is a combination of attraction designer WhiteWater West's Master Blaster and Boomerango slides. You'll plunge down deep basins and blast up hills before finishing in a “near-vertical ascent” up the ride's wall. 

The other three slides all start from the same tower. Serpentine Storm sends you swirling around a bowl and down a flume. Dreamsicle Dive shoots you through an alternately open and closed tube, giving you a high-intensity experience. The less adventurous aren't left out! The final slide, Mango Mania, is an aqua tube offering less intense slopes and sliding.
