Everyone got to just waltz in to LanierWorld like they owned the place from 10am-noon and stay all day! We were overwhelmed with the incredible response from the community, and even though it took a good bit of time to get through the main gate, once people found out our big surprise, it was all smiles from then on! Looks like you guys have been listening to us when we say our social media followers get special attention.

Was it fun over at WiggleWaves? You bet it was!

How was the water in Georgia’s largest wave pool? Chilly, but with a 100% chance of fun!

Who likes the Raging River? These kids do!

Just how popular are the mighty Twister and Typhoon? Guests cheered when the lifeguards opened the ride!

Where can a kid go to get soaked around here? How about the FunDunker!

We were thrilled to see everyone out having a great time at LanierWorld on Monday, and we want to thank everyone for making it as huge a success as you did! You guys were amazing!

Wake the Lake!

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Have you ever wanted to learn how to do something magnificent? Skydive? Climb Everest? Ride a rocket to outer space? With our brand new Wake The Lake Cable Park, we can get you that adrenaline rush that’s just a notch down from those! Come take a ride with our amazing staff as you learn to wakeboard like a pro! Or, if you already are a pro, come take a ride and practice your whirlybirds and tantrums on our A-frame and platform before heading out with your boat crew!

Our incredible and patient staff at the Cable Park is ready to teach you the essentials, from putting on your helmet, to strapping on your board, to standing up! Even kids will have mastered the basics by the end of their first run! You’ll learn to start in the water or from the dock, which is always a crowd-pleaser.

Our boat-free tow line will take you down the lake and back as you learn how to balance and switch from toe-edge to heel-edge as you carve your way through the water.

And if you faceplant, our team will be right there to encourage you to grab that tow-line and get right back up on your board! Even the pros take spills now and then, and it’s all part of the learning process, so have no fears if you are a new rider!

On the other hand, if you ARE a pro, and you definitely want to practice riding switch and hitting kickers and flighter boxes, then Wake the Lake is a great place to practice. No choppy water, consistent pull on the tow, and you don’t have to wait for the boat to drive around again to pick you up. Plus, when you’re done, our cable brings you right back to the dock!

One Hour Ride Session

All About Those New Access Passes!

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

Today it’s all about clearing up any confusion you may have about our new Access Passes! We know this new structure might be a little tough to handle at first, but our friendly and professional staff is here for you, and we’re going to make this smooth like silk.

First of all, why is Lake Lanier implementing this new charge?

Well, based on your feedback, we’ve implemented a variety of improvements at LanierWorld that we are super pumped about. We have now completed the implementation phase, and it’s time for us begin including these awesome new features in our standard access fares. What are these new features, you ask?

We have new, more, and better entertainment! Every single day at LanierWorld we’re featuring at least one band, and often up to THREE! All over the park!! Seriously, our entertainment schedule is jam packed with rad bands, both famous and local. PLUS, we’re offering totally NEW things like the Fun Patrol and interactive kids’ entertainment!

We have extensive new food and beverage options, from all new Boardwalk dining to Bullfrog’s little cousin Tad’s! Have you ever had a Walking Taco? Try it at the Sunset Cantina on Boardwalk! Want to order pizza from Gianni’s and eat it on your boat? Order through your mobile device! Chill out by the Dockside Bar and enjoy patio dining or take your drink down to the beach!

Speaking of dockside, we’ve poured a ton of effort into renovating our Sunset Cove and Big Beach Docks. Be sure to check them out, they’re simply fantastic!

Still speaking of Dockside, you may have noticed our most obvious addition: The Boardwalk, where the Lakeside Entertainment District comes alive! There are tons of dining options just in this strip, PLUS our new Ferris wheel, carnival games, FunTime entertainment, and patio dining!

Furthermore, thanks to popular demand, we’ve extended Big Beach and pulled in even more umbrellas and beach chairs for rental, AND completely renovated and upgraded our bathrooms! For real you guys, Princess Kate would even use these things. They’re that nice.

 

Here are the 2 Access Only Pass options, each $10 per person, not including kids age 6 and under:

Option 1: Daily Dining, Retail, and Spa Access

Stroll up, buy the $10 Option One Access Pass, and we’ll immediately give you a $10 voucher that is good towards Dining/Food concessions, any of our retail shops, or our new Tranquility on the Water Spa in LanierWorld. This option DOES NOT INCLUDE Beach Access, and is valid ONLY on the day of entry.

Option 2: Daily Beach Access

Stroll up, buy the $10 Option Two Access Pass, and you get all day access to the beach, umbrellas, and beach chairs (which are first come, first serve). You ALSO get access to all our Boardwalk games and Ferris wheel, the volleyball courts, Sunset Cove and Big Beach restaurants, non-lifeguarded swim areas, AND Lakeside Links Minigolf. That is A LOT of things! This option DOES NOT INCLUDE the voucher from Option 1.

       Download our Admission Guide

Now, we know everyone will have specific questions, so we’re going to try to answer a few of those here today in, you guessed it!, HYPOTHETICAL SCENARIO TIME!!

Access Only Pass Scenarios:

You get off your awesome boat and say, “I don’t like sand in my shorts – I only want to go to the Sunset Cove Beach Cafe & Club to eat.”

Your best option is Option 1.

 

You get off your awesome boat and say, “I want to enjoy the beach all day, I LOVE building sandcastles!”

If you come more than 3 times per year, then we recommend the SEASON Beach Pass, not the Daily Beach Access PassThe SEASON Beach Pass is $35 and includes ALL the DAILY Beach Pass features, but it’s valid for the whole season, which is May-September.

If you’re just visiting today, then Option 2 is best for you. 

 

You’re walking around the beach, and you’ve, um, “forgotten” to purchase a Beach Pass:

One of our nice staff members will approach you and say, “I notice you aren’t wearing a Beach Access wristband, would you like to purchase one now? Let me direct you to the nearest purchasing booth.”

But you’re all like “I don’t want to pay for this.”

Since we’ve finished implementing all those amazing new things you saw earlier, our beach is now for patrons only. It’s cool if you want to pull up in your boat and hang out, but we’ve got a pristine beach to maintain, and if you want to use it, we need everyone to do their part – even if it is just pitching in $10 per person.

 

You get off your awesome boat and say, “I just want to get a drink.”

Are you planning on eating, too? If so, then Option 1 is best for you – it includes a food and retail voucher.

If you aren’t planning on eating, then Option 2 is best – it includes beach access so you can relax on the beach while you enjoy your beverage.

 

You get off your awesome boat and say, “My kids just want to play on the beach and build sandcastles – I’d rather just stay on my awesome boat.”

Option 2 is best for you. We do require that kids under 12 be accompanied by an adult chaperone, though. Even though kids walk around our park all day without their parents holding their hands, our beach is not patrolled by lifeguards like our waterpark is. For your kids’ safety, we’re counting on you as a responsible and super cool chaperone to help them build that rad sandcastle and just keep an eye on them while they’re on the beach.

 

You’re thinking to yourself right now, “I read/heard last week that I get a voucher when I purchase an Access Pass…”

You are describing Option 1.

 

If you have any more questions, please feel free to call us up at (770) 945-8787 or visit us online at www.lanierworld.com.
