Paradise Cantina is awash in bright colors

Although swimming in Lake Lanier will be curtailed at Margaritaville, the park has added plenty of opportunities to enjoy the water this season. The waterslides and attractions are open and visitors will be seeing many changes.

The park has added Parrot Mountain summer tubing ride and brought back the Fin Dunker Bucket near LandShark Bar & Grill. Both the Wild Waves Wave Pool and Parakeet Springs kids’ splash pool were renovated in the off-season.

The popular Aquatic Adventures water obstacle course will see a few changes. Patrons will now access the floating obstacle course via a dock, and attendants will be on duty. Life jackets will be required, as well.

Special events include monthly Full Moon Parties with fireworks and entertainment, Margarita Sunset Cruises on Saturday and Brunch Cruises on Sundays, and bands at LandShark Landing. Paddleboarding and kayaking are also available; life jackets will be required.

This year Margaritaville will stage four nights of fireworks to celebrate Independence Day. On July 1’s Full Moon Party, and then the evenings of July 2, 3 and 4, the skies will be ablaze with explosive color.

Margaritaville at Lanier Islands is open daily through August 6, then on weekends until September 24. For more information, visit www.margaritavilleatlanierislands.com or call 470 323-3440.
