Chattahoochee Rapid and Water Park is part of the Lake Lanier Islands Resort. With over a dozen attractions, it is sure to have something for every member of the family. For families with little ones, there’s a kiddie pool that you will be more than satisfied to spend a lot of time at. The park was actually designed with the concept that parents should be able to watch the kiddies while enjoying themselves as well. The Wiggle Wave and Kiddie Lagoon are close to the entrance and also the beach area, so parents and kiddies alike can enjoy their time at the park. For the older kiddos, there are waterslides, a wave pool and a water area that is just for them to enjoy. You can also make it a weekend adventure by reserving a room at the Legacy Lodge. While some consider the price a little pricey, it is definitely worth it.
