My children like to play in the snow, but the temperatures in Atlanta aren’t always conducive to the fluffy white stuff, so they love the idea that Snow Mountain provides the snow no matter what the temperature is outside, at least during the winter months.
Stone Mountain Park is well-known for its family fun in the summer with its laser and fireworks shows, especially around the 4th of July, but part of the park converts to Snow Mountain from Thanksgiving until February 20th.
My family was invited out to review the park recently and the kids had a blast. I’m not a fan of cold weather, so it was ideal for me to enjoy the snow, or honestly watch the kids enjoy the snow, without freezing my you-know-what off.
We all rode the family intertube down the hill and the kids took individual rides in the tubes. We also made a snowman, something my husband particularly enjoyed, with the block tools that the park provided, and the hats, scarves and other items found in the snowman shed.
If you go, know that timing is everything. We didn’t face many crowds at 10am and were able to get on the tubes with a minimal wait, but once 11am hit the lines were looooooong and we only rode the family tube one more time because of it. Parking is a breeze but does cost $10. Figure that into the price of admission and definitely plan to be at the park 30 minutes before your reserved time so that you don’t waste a minute of it waiting in line for tickets.
