BUFORD, Ga. - May 9, 2014 - PRLog -- A favorite destination among Atlanta natives and Southern vacationers alike, LanierWorld at Georgia’s Lake Lanier Islands Resort will soon be filled to overflowing with fun seekers and sun worshippers. Set on the shores of Lake Sidney Lanier in landlocked North Georgia, LanierWorld fans have been waiting since September 2013 for the return of the popular beach, waterpark and boardwalk entertainment district. They will get their wish on Saturday, May 17 when LanierWorld opens daily for the 2014 season.

“With memories of a long cold winter that featured SnowJam and Snowmaggedon 2014 still fresh in the minds of locals, spring and summer are really in high demand here in Georgia,” explains Stephanie Orr, VP of Sales & Marketing for Lake Lanier Islands. “Add the fact that there is nothing else in the state quite like us, and it’s no wonder why LanierWorld’s popularity has risen steadily since it first debuted four years ago. While all of the fan favorites are what draw them here year after year, our guests will be treated to a few new surprises this season.”

What’s New for LanierWorld’s 2014 Season?:

LanierWorld Family Season Pass:
While the Resort has always offered Individual Season Passes to its beach, waterpark and boardwalk entertainment district, this year it is pleased to introduce the Family Season Pass. For just $229.99, a family of three will be granted unlimited access to LanierWorld during operating hours throughout the 2014 season. Additional perks include free resort access and parking during the season (valued at $10/visit), “Friend Day” discounts of 50% off admission for up to 5 friends on Tuesdays and Thursdays, unlimited access to carnival rides and more. Additional family members can be added for $69.99 each (children 2 and under are admitted to LanierWorld free of charge.)

SweetWater Shrimp Shack on the Boardwalk:  Following last season’s terrific response to the Sunset Cantina along LanierWorld’s Boardwalk, the Resort is pleased to unveil the SweetWater Shrimp Shack for 2014 – which will feature fried shrimp by the half-pound and pound, perfectly accompanied by an assortment of dipping sauces and locally brewed SweetWater 420 on tap. Also joining the Shrimp Shack in its debut this season, the Cookie House will feature fresh baked cookies to satisfy any sweet tooth.

Food and Beverage Service on the Beach and Docks: Well known for its provision of outstanding customer service, Lake Lanier Islands Resort now extends that concept to boaters and beachgoers. Friendly servers will circulate specially marked beach areas, as well as the docks at Sunset Cove and Big Beach in search of hungry and thirsty guests.

Ladies Night Wednesdays and Trivia Night Thursdays at Sunset Cove Beach Café & Club: Two new events have been added to this beachfront eatery’s weekly rotation of fun that already includes Masterpiece Mondays, Volleyball Tuesdays and Low Country Boil Fridays – in addition to famed monthly Full Moon Parties and regular live entertainment. Thanks to Sunset Cove’s new retractable enclosure, the rain will never again dampen diners’ spirits. For more information about events at Sunset Cove, fans are encouraged to visit the new, dedicated website.

LanierWorld Gift Cards:  This year, gift givers can delight their recipients with the gift of LanierWorld. Gift cards are available in any denomination and can be used towards admission to the park, dining throughout the resort, accommodations and other attractions/services at Lake Lanier Islands such as Legacy on Lanier Golf Club, The Stables at Lanier, Tranquility the Spa, Island Cart Rentals, Electric Bike Rentals, and more.

In addition to the new features at LanierWorld, guests can still expect to find: An expansive stretch of white sandy beach that extends from Sunset Cove to Big Beach: Over a dozen water attractions that include thrilling waterslides, splash zones and wave pools; Lakeside Ferris Wheel, Tilt-A-Whirl and kid-friendly carnival rides; a slew of waterfront dining establishments; and a jam-packed calendar of events that is comprised of open-air concerts, Memorial Day Celebration, July 4th Celebration, and more. The LanierWorld 2014 Season runs from May 17 to Labor Day Weekend.
