American Adventures and Foam Factory in Atlanta - Honest Review

Fri, 24 Jul 2009 12:04:02 GMT

Last week me and the family went to the American Adventures Family Fun park. The weather was real HOT. The parking lot was extremely full. Lots of people was taking advantage of the hot day by getting wet at the water park next door.

American Adventures is like a small carnival with slightly better rides. Their main idea is to attract smaller children that normally would not be able to ride the rides at their larger park, Six Flags.

Their short description from their website:

Play a game on one of our NEW billiards tables!

FREE PARKING AND FREE ADMISSION American Adventures no longer has an admission charge. You simply pay for the attractions you want.

Some of the rides were closed which was unfortunate, but this was probably due to the lack of employees working. I would notice that they would shutdown a ride and then later reopen it. What I love about it was the Lines was REAL Short. Most of times we just got on right after the ride was over.

Kids climb on ropes, nets, stairs, and throw small foam balls at people. Parts of it was either broken or just plain old.

I spent roughly around $20 total for about 3 hours of entertainment.

* You can take water and snacks with you. * You don't need to purchase for adults with a paying child
* All this for less than $20. It's a cheap outing for the family

I had to travel about 30 miles to get there so It's not like I'm ready to go back anytime. Check it out If you just happen to be around the area and need something to do.
