Stone Mountain Park Big Rock Waterpark

Atlanta, GA

The Big Rock Waterpark is a 15 acre outdoor waterpark set in the scenic and historic Stone Mountain Park on the outskirts of Atlanta, GA. This waterpark under development by Herschend Family Entertainment replaces a swimming beach and four old waterslides that previously occupied the site. The site is situated adjacent to a lake and is wooded with substantial topography making for challenging site conditions.

Phase one of the project consists of a 1,000 ft. long river, a leisure pool on the beach, a large kids zone with eight small waterslides and dozens of interactive features, four body flumes, two inner tube flumes, a four-lane mat racer and two-family raft rides with a raft conveyor.

Targeted park attendance is 2,000 people and phase two expansion calls for the addition of more water slides and a wave pool integrating with the lake and the beach.

Counsilman-Hunsaker produced construction documents, but due to economic conditions, the project never went into construction.
