Children under age 10 are free with parents and those ages 10–15 are $15 with their parents. From its riverside perch, the Do Da Jam Festival embraces the converging worlds of art and entertainment with myriad musical acts, artisan vendors, and Earth Day celebrations spread over a five-day shindig geared toward youngsters and adults alike. The event boasts four stages showcasing more than 50 bands, from the soulful tunes of Sol Driven Train to the soaring jazz crescendos and outer-space high-fiving of Miles from Earth. The tune-packed schedule lets rhythm fans bop to late-morning sets or middle-of-the-night concerts. Retreat to your camping space in between sets to refuel or create your own percussion band out of tent poles. Free artesian-well water is available throughout the weekend, as are family-friendly activities including river tubing, bonfires, and crashing other families' portrait sessions.
The flashing lights of a parked ambulance mingle with the orange heat of a flaming car. Armed men demand loyalty from their captives, with dire consequences for those who resist. Finally, a pair of specters emerge from the fires of the underworld to claim their due. These are but a few of the trials that visitors to Hell's Gates will endure during this dramatization of the Great Tribulation. Live actors draw visitors into a sequence of eight scenes plucked straight from the Book of Revelation, with each one punctuated by immersive events including pyrotechnics and video effects.
Lake Lanier is no stranger to aquatic adventurers: boats and jet skis regularly zoom across its surface. But it's never seen something quite like the Flyboard, a jetpack-esque contraption that uses sprays of water to propel its rider through the lake and up to heights of 40 feet. The central board sends two massive jets of H20 wherever its commander’s feet desire, while two arm-bound stabilizers enable the rider to perform twists and backflips, as well as enact revenge on any duck who dares steal their hot-dog. Instructor Bryan Keenan employs the skills that he displayed at the 2012 World Cup for Flyboarding to get his students ready for flight.
Psychedelic lighting, clouds of fog, and thumping beats fill Laser Tag of Buford’s 7,000-square-foot, two-level arena. From behind rectangular obstacles and stacks of barrels, up to 28 players dodge incoming laser blasts while firing at foes during battles that commence every 20 minutes. Throughout each bout, computerized weapons and sound system¬–equipped vests help participants stay abreast of their score, while a large scoreboard updates sideline observers and astronauts watching from space. After their game, guests can explore the facility’s remaining 4,000 square feet, which house an arcade with more than 20 games and a concession stand stocked with snacks and drinks.
