SnowWorld is Hotlanta’s Coolest Holiday Destination
by Sara Levine
In Northeast Georgia, Lanier Islands and LanierWorld’s popular excursions and hospitality have attracted summer visitors for years. Now the gates won’t close just because the summer season has ended. This year, Lake Lanier’s new Christmas attractions and brand new SnowWorld bring visitors a classic white Christmas and wintery fun. SnowWorld boasts three huge snow machines that constantly blow snow throughout the resort, giving the feel and fun of real snow. Lake Lanier Islands Christmas will be open November 21 through December 31, and after the holidays, the SnowWorld attractions stay open through January 25.
SnowWorld offers something for every member of the family, with five speed slides with “icy” slick surfaces, a snowy tube slide with 13 lanes and four snow play zones. When you’re done on the slides, head over to the family-friendly restaurants, the fire pits for roasting marshmallows and the ice skating rink. Skating at the Coca-Cola Polar Rink is free this year with admission to the resort, and there’s no cost for renting the skates, either. And the fun doesn’t stop one the sun goes down. Visitors can either drive or stroll through light shows and visit the SnowWorld Village for shopping, carnival rides, games and more.
