Once your action-packed day ends, don’t leave the park just yet! Head out to the Laser Lawn for our captivating 45-minute Lasershow Spectacular, presented by the Georgia Office of Highway Safety, running every night, all summer long! It starts at 9:30, but you will want to make your way to the lawn in advance to beat the crowds.

This year, some new processes are being utilized to help you make the most of your Lasershow experience. First, you will need to purchase a Lasershow square online. The squares are designed to seat a family of 4 to 5 for socially distanced relaxation during the Lasershow. You’ll show your email confirmation to the staff at the Ticket Plaza, and then you’ll head to the lawn to select your square. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to get to the lawn early to secure your square and get ready for an amazing show!
