AUSTELL, Ga. (AP) -- Six Flags Over Georgia will soon break ground on what it describes as the largest expansion in the history of the theme park just west of Atlanta.
Park officials on Thursday announced plans for Hurricane Harbor, a tropically-themed water park. They say the water park will be in the area formerly occupied by the Southern Star Amphitheater. Officials say the water park will be free with park admission.
Park officials say Hurricane Harbor will include an 800,000-gallon wave pool, a multi-slide tower, a children's area, and a single-slide tower combining two extreme slide thrills.
Hurricane Harbor is set to open in late May 2014.
