A new name and a brand-new attraction will greet guests when Margaritaville opens for the 2024 season. Renamed Fins Up Water Park, Margaritaville’s water park is adding Apocalypso waterslide rollercoaster for 2024.

The park opens for weekends on May 4 with Saturday and Sunday hours. It opens for seven-day-a-week operations on Memorial Day weekend and continues through Labor Day.

“Apocalypso, Georgia’s first waterslide coaster, is a blockbuster of four separate slides that will bring a new level of thrills for our guests,” said Bucky Perry, vice president of operations at Margaritaville. “It’s the most significant investment since the waterpark opened several decades ago.”

Riders experience Apocalypso on rafts that travel more than 418 feet of slide with an average water speed of 30 miles per hour.

Three other slides of varying speeds are part of the Apocalypso tower complex.

“Serpentine Storm combines high-banking rotations of a bowl with the rapid descent of a downward-spiraling flume,” Perry said. “Dreamsicle Dive features riding on a closed and open tube that delivers high-intensity, next-level fun.

“The lower-intensity Mango Mania tube waterslide features varying slopes and gentle slide paths perfect for younger thrill seekers.”

Other enhancements at Margaritaville’s Fins Up Water Park include an expanded Wibit Aquatic Adventure, plus new cabanas and new food and beverage offerings.
