The Great Wolf Resort in LaGrange, which is expected to open May 31, will have two new water slides that have never been used before by the company.
The slides are one-of-a-kind slides developed for Great Wolf Lodge Georgia by slide maker ProSlide.
Here’s a look at the two water slides:
Triple Thunder: This group raft ride combines two water park attractions available into one slide. The ride starts by sending guests down a steep drop and into a funnel, where they will experience sensations of weightlessness as the raft sloshes up-and-down the funnel walls. Upon exiting the funnel, the raft swooshes towards two saucers. The saucers provide additional excitement as guests hurl at maximum speeds along the bank of the saucer, swirl 180-degrees and exit through a narrow passageway – all in the dark. A few extra twist and turns await after the saucers before riders finally plunge into a catch pool at the bottom of the slide.
Rapid Racer: This two-person tube racing slide features drops, chutes and serpentine curves. As riders emerge from 180-degree and 360-degree banked curves, they enter a section with open racing lanes where they can see and hear their competition on the other side of a low separator wall.
The new $150 million resort will be the new prototype for Great Wolf, which will also include a conference center, 456 hotel rooms and dining options.
The company said the resort will be the new prototype, or "flagship resort" for Great Wolf.
The water park area will be nearly 100,000 square feet. A dry play area will occupy another 40,000 square feet of space. There will also be dining options, yoga for kids and bedtime pajama activities.
Great Wolf Lodge Georgia will debut with an exclusive, adult-only oasis adjacent to the outdoor pool, complete with a private hot tub for parents to enjoy.
The park will eventually employ about 600 workers and officials expect to hold a job fair soon.
An overnight stay at Great Wolf Lodge Georgia includes two days of play at the expansive indoor water park. Standard rates start at $199.99 per night.
The park is offering a special discount of up to 30 percent off standard rates for stays through December 2018. Guests must reserve their suite before March 23, to qualify for the offer. and can book on the website or by calling 1-888-960-WOLF (9653) and using the promo code, “GRAND.”
