Lake Lanier Islands Beach and Waterpark

This website is my review of Lake Lanier Islands Waterpark. My family goes frequently and we will have season passes again this year. Lake Lanier Islands Beach and Waterpark, also known as Lanier World is the crown jewel for Lake Lanier. Even though Lake Lanier has great fishing, watersports, marinas, restaurants and parks; this resort is the main attraction and just keeps getting better. Besides the waterpark Lake Lanier Islands Resorts also boasts Golfing, Camping, Horseback Riding and accommodations at Legacy Lodge. To get additional information on pricing or specifics on other amenities offered by Lake Lanier Islands Resort contact them at 770-945-8787.

Big Beach

The “Big Beach” is just that; very large and you can always find a spot to park your family and your belongings without feeling crowded. There are plenty of chairs and everything you need is just steps away.

Big Beach Aquatic Adventure

The Big Beach Aquatic Adventure at Lake Lanier Islands Beach and Waterpark is the biggest floating playground you will find.

Blackout Water Slide

The Blackout Water Slide at Lake Lanier Islands is next to the Splash Down Water Slide on the opposite side of the lake from the Big Beach. The water slide is short but very fast and very dark, which adds to the excitement.

Boardwalk

The Boardwalk at Lake Lanier Islands Beach and Waterpark starts at the Big Beach and leads you through slides, rides, eats and treats all the way down to Sunset Cove. Besides being your pathway to many exciting rides the Boardwalk itself has many of the parks refreshments including Dippin’ Dots, Islands Icee Oasis, Tiki Hut Bar, Giannis Italian Bistro and Pizzeria, Boardwalk Concessions, Brusters Ice Cream, The Dog and Draft House and Sunset Cove Beach Cafe. The Rides on the Boardwalk include a ferris wheel and dry slides for those who don’t want to get wet. There are also amusement types games including basketball.

Fun Dunker

The Fun Dunker is a water playground for kids. No chance that they will not get soaked. The Fun Dunkers main feature is a large bucket that fills with water and eventually tips to pour out a massive amount of water on anyone below. There are also plenty of places to get water poured on you inside the Fun Dunker and plenty of water canons to spray your friends or parents with. Right beside the Fun Dunker is the Fun Dunker Drop, which is a ride that that drops you four stories into a bowl that you spiral around in before eventually dropping through a hole in the center and into a pool.

Giannis Italian Bistro and Pizzeria

Giannis is located on the Boardwalk between the Big Beach and Sunset Cove. This is more than just a place to grab a slice of pizza, this is a good Italian restaurant with a large menu. There is seating inside as well as shaded seating outside to enjoy the views.

Intimidator and Triple Threat Water Slides

The Intimidator sits just off the Boardwalk and runs side by side with the Triple Threat Water slide. You can tell the difference in two ways, the Intimidator is yellow and the Triple Threat is blue and the other is the large, near vertical, drop that the Intimidator has compared to the three drops that the Triple Threat has. Both rides are amazingly fun but the Intimidator gives you a free falling sense for a second or two.

Kiddie Lagoon Wiggle Waves

The Kiddie Lagoon at Lake Lanier Islands sits just off the Big Beach and adjoins Wiggle Waves. The Kiddie Lagoon is a water playground for the little ones. It has small, cushioned slides to race on, a little fort with a slide to play in and plenty of fountains to keep the little ones nice and cool on a hot day.
