Dreaming of summer already? Don’t let the cool chill of winter stop your family from having some fun in your swimsuits. Suit up, grab a towel and make a splash this winter at one of the Atlanta metro area's indoor water parks! 

Great Wolf Lodge Atlanta / LaGrange
Newly opened in 2018 about an hour outside of Atlanta, this signature Great Wolf Lodge Resort indoor water park features 93,000-square feet of pools, slides, and water attractions. Scream down three successive water slides for three times the fun, grab a tube and race to the finish line, dip and dive with the whole family on a river raft, bounce around in the wave pool or climb around in the fort tree house. Whatever adventure you choose, it’s sure to be filled with smiles and laughter.
