AQUAPALOOZA 2013!!

Friday, July 26th, 2013

Wave your hands in the air if you feel fine! We’re gonna take it into overtime! Welcome to Aquapalooza!

Sponsored by MarineMax and Sea Ray, Aquapalooza 2013 is going to be a blast this year! In addition to the normal awesomesauce that happens at LanierWorld (water park, mini golf, floating spa, cable park, paddleboards, Boardwalk, etc.), Aquapalooza brings you a ton of great beach games and contests to really make the day amazing. We’ve got bands, volleyball, and cornhole, to name a few things. We’ve got a kids’ and non-kids Hula Hoop competition on the beach! We’ve got the Beach Olympics at Big Beach.B.C. Band, the Digits, and local favorite Riley Biederer all playing around the park. Finally our Big Beach party kicks off with Haywire headlining! Can you even BELIEVE how much fun this is going to be?! And we’ll be there to document the whole thing! Be sure to say hello to our photographers if you see them!

 

Upon entering Sunset Cove, turn your VHF radio to Channel 72. Look for the boats marked with Sea Ray and MarineMax Flags and team members wearing staff shirts to help direct you to a safe and secure anchorage spot. Please be extremely careful as there will be hundreds of boats in the cove. Be sure to come to the registration desk to sign in.

Wave down or radio a MarineMax Water Taxi to get to shore and enjoy the Water Park and Beach activities. You will still need to purchase a Beach Access Pass which is $10.00/person. We will have live entertainment throughout the day, beach activities, and contests. MarineMax will be giving away AquaPalooza T-shirts throughout the day along with other prizes! For those of you who do not receive a T-shirt, MarineMax will have them on sale at their Buford and Cumming locations for only $5.00 while supplies last! T-SHIRTS ARE THE BEST!!

MarineMax will be sending an email with the activity line up for the day of the event, but in the mean time, check out the schedule below.

Also, MarineMax Staff will be monitoring Channel 72 on your VHF radio the entire weekend for questions.

Those of you coming by car will need to pay the $10 gate fee at the main gate. Follow the signs to park at Grand Hall and walk towards the Sunset Cove restaurant to the registration table. Before you enter LanierWorld, you’ll be able to purchase one of our access only passes, or an all attractions pass at the gate. Be sure to grab a “Fun Ashore & More” Weekend Guide for coupons and more details!

We have begun distributing these awesome weekly informational flyers for what’s happening all over Lake Lanier Islands Resort for our guests and visitors! You can find out where the Seafood Buffet will be on Friday, who’s playing at Big Beach on Saturday, and when the party starts at Sunset Cove and plan your vacation according to what you want to see and do! In addition to all of our weekly events like Flip Flop Fridays, you’ll have times and information for special events like the Fun Time Players and Big Beach Parties. And those are just at LanierWorld! Fun Ashore & More also gives you the times for when our boat rentals begin at Harbor Landing, the hours of operation for Tranquility on the Water, when Kayaks and Paddleboards are available for rental, and the hours for our Lake Lanier Canopy Tours. For pure information, this weekend guide simply can’t be beat.

Without further ado, we are pleased and excited to announce: “Fun Ashore & More: Weekend Guide to What’s Happening Around LanierWorld!”
