Located next door to White Water Atlanta water park, this amusement facility is perfectly suited for families with small kids. This outpost of the Six Flags empire features such exciting rides ad the Tilt-a-Whirl, the Scrambler, and miniature roller coasters, bumper cars, and swings just right for the youthful thrill-seeker. Other attractions include a go-cart track and a miniature golf course. The 40,000-square-foot (3716-square meter) Foam Factory is also located within the park for an additional fee. Call for seasonal hours.
Not only can you get great deals on line, but they have all day and 3 hour wristbands so you don't have to pay for the attractions separately. I found out that they are open year round, and although every ride is not attended when they are slower, they catered to our family as if we were the only one's in the park. Pretty much, we had our own attendant who took care of us and let us ride every ride we wanted. They have done a lot of work recently, and their game room is SO improved. I would highly recommend this park for family entertainment. If you haven't been in a while, you should go!
first of all we arrived at the park expecting to pay for the all day unlimited pass which was a good deal supposedly bc you get with it unlimited go carts which your child must be at least 48" to ride as just a passenger (i dont know bout u but i do not know many children under 8 yrs old that are that tall and hmmm thought this was for small children too),unlimited put put golf (ha what a joke, under water and nasty), unlimited black forest rides (which was very limited bc the main attractions were broke down including the one and only roller coaster,the crazy bus, and the pirate ship), unlimited foam factory which we were really looking forward too, but was informed after we had paid $20 each for myself, my husband, and my 4yr old son, that the foam factory was closed due to it was broken. We were really dissappointed by this!!! when we asked about being reimbursed some of the money since so many things were not working, we were told by some skinny little nerdy dude so called manager i think who was clearly not a parent himself that he could not help us bc that was not his policy, anyways we argued enough that they finally gave us $15 in arcade tokens so we were like okay well at least that is something, but to no suprise at this point we walked into an arcade where hardly none of the games were in working order, everything that our son asked to play was out of order, and the games that were working usually took at least 1 of your tokens. The other black forest rides were cute, but really no more than you would see at one of those small parking lot fairs that come to town for a week or so. they had a super slide and several little rides that spin you around till everyone is vomiting. Anyhoo after all of that i guess our kid had a decent time, but why they did not tell us when we paid for admission that there was no need for my husband and I to pay for the $20 pass seeing that we could have just paid the $5 fee for an accompanying adult which is fair, bc most rides u must be under 60", yeah okay im short myself 5'2" and still i was too tall for a lot of the rides. I wont even mention my 6'2" husband. Yeah they ripped us off, just don't let them do the same thing to you. Save your money go to chuckie cheese or jump 4 joey. you will find that those facilities are much cleaner,cheaper, and kept up. This is a poor broken down excuse for a childrens amusement park...
We took our 3 children (6,5,3) on a Friday, we opted for the full day pass, we had a coupon for $3 dollars off which they let us use for all 3 kids. We also bought one adult pass so I could ride with our 3 year old. This was our first visit to the park in about 4 years. First impressions seemed good, the outside seemed clean and the ticket booth staff was nice. We went into the Foam factory first, this was a little disappointing, 90% of the balls were on the floor and several of the devices to get the balls up to the blasters didn't work, my wife and I actually fixed two of them ourselves (one was vacuum device the other was a conveyor belt that lifted the balls to the upper levels). Once those were working things were a little better. Also I don't think they have actually vacuumed the floor since the place opened. The rides were a little confusing, we noticed off the bat they were understaffed which made riding the rides difficult, until we found they do the rides in a "group" setting. Once we found out how this worked it was great, you just find a group of people on a ride and follow that group from ride to ride. The rides were very age appropriate for our children. After about 2 and half hours we were hungry so we broke down for the $25 pizza and soda combo, they usually charge $1 for a cup of water but gave us 3 for free. Prices seemed normal for an amusement park. We also played mini golf, wow they should just level that course, several holes were unplayable and hole 5 was under 4 inches of water. Overall we had a fun time, the kids really had a fun time and that what it was all about. Yes, the place is a little run down and could use some work. But for the $70 dollars we spent our family a lot of great memories. We will probably go back again.
I took my girls to Amercian Adventure today. What a mistake that was!!!! The place was dirty, the restrooms were beyond filthy and that was just the beginning. Most of the rides were closed, half the putt-putt course was under water, and nearly half of the arcade games were broken. The magic show - whoops! What magic show??? That wasn't happening either. If you were hungry you better like $8 slices of Pizza and $5 slushies or you could starve. None of the other concessions were open. The attitudes of the staff were just as bad as the rest of the park. They acted as if the kids they were there to serve were a huge burden. I could go on and on but you get the idea. I would highly recommend saving the time and gas it would take to get to this pathetic excuse for a kids theme park and either stay home or just go to Chuckie Cheese. Its a lot cleaner, friendlier and less expensive.
And by the way parents- that wrist band you have to buy so you can ride with your child - I hope you aren't over 60 inches tall!!
We went here on a day when it had rained earlier so all the outside rides were closed. We had driven all the way from east Gwinnett and paid the $10 to park, so we decided to go into the arcade. Only about half the games worked, even the ones that looked pretty new didn't work. That is not an exaggeration, the place was in total disrepair. Our seven year old wanted to go into the Foam Factory. We paid the $7 for him to go in (against better judgement), but quickly realized that you could just walk into it without paying as most people were doing and a lot of stuff in there didn't work either. It was old and filthy. There was a Papa John's pizza in there that was charging $8.00 for one slice of pizza or $25 for an entire pizza. Crazy. We were glad the outside rides weren't turned on because they looked every bit of 20 years old. The mini-golf was totally overgrown looking, and even though the American Adventures website says that go-carts are "coming soon" the go-cart area looked all rusted out, so it's more likely that they are just trying to bring it up to code before they can open it.
Overall, this place was nasty and broken down. It made Chuck-E-Cheese look spotless. American Adventures looks like it was probably nice 15 years ago, but has not been kept up at all. I would not ever make the mistake of going back here again.
Concerned about "open" area to the parking lot by the "Slide" and "The Chuck Wagon Ride". Too easy access for someone who wanted to kidnap a child and would grant easy "get-away".
Food and Water are too expensive. Granted the admission price is reasonable; however, it is totally overpriced for water, dipping dots, et al.
All ride attendants very profession and polite. Attendants need to be able to stop parents who literally drag a scared, screaming child on to a ride. Saw this happen at the roller coaster and the parent was saying he would "make a man" out of the very young child. Attendant should be empowered to stop something like this. It is equivalent to child abuse.
The price and entertainment are perfect for parents and children under 12. The park is for younger children who can not do much at a park such as Six Flags. An accompanying parent is only $5 and children under 36 inches is also $5. What a great day for $10 plus the price of parking. Make sure you get the pass that works for all rides and the foam factory. It is the same price and you can do more. My kids liked it at the age of 3. My kids loved it at the age of 5. They will love it when I bring them back in future years.
