Big Beach at LanierWorld

Come to the Water Park at Lake Lanier Islands Resort

Whether you’re in the mood to relax or play at LanierWorld, Big Beach offers the best of both worlds over its spacious stretch of sparkling sand lining Lake Sidney Lanier. Stretch out and get some sun on the warm sand or cool off in the water, with lifeguards nearby making the area a safe swimming haven! There are also a number of rides and attractions you can browse below.

For the Little Ones

At Kiddie Lagoon, your little ones will delight in the interactive play area with loads of spraying water effects and "just their size" slides. Adjacent to Kiddie Lagoon is a mini version of our Wild Waves, Wiggle Waves is especially designed for younger guests.

Children must be less than 48" to play in these areas.

Big Beach

Lounge with your favorite book and a refreshing drink from the Tiki Hut or catch a live performance on the floating stage. And of course, build the ultimate sand castle! Then, head in for a swim in our lifeguarded swim area.

Aquatic Adventure

Climb, jump, bounce, and slide on our brand new floating playground! Aquatic Adventure offers extraordinary excitement in an awesome environment! Conquer the Lake's newest challenge when you visit Big Beach!

Coming in 2015: we are tripling the size of Aquatic Adventure so you can play and bounce even more atop the waters of Lake Lanier.


On your mark, get set, GO! Race your opponent to the bottom of Racing Waters: a super-fast, dual-flumed fiberglass body slide. On Splashdown, you’ll be assured a “splashing” good time on this two-flume mat slide. Riders slide down head first on a toboggan-style mat. Kids and Adults alike will delight in Blackout, a short, but fast, body slide into total darkness. Typhoon & Twister are famous for their high turns and rapid declines, which leave you feeling like you just survived a tsunami. Further down Big Beach, Intimidator & Triple Threat are high-speed body slides offering a truly quick descent!

Riders must be 42" tall for these rides.
