Wake the Lake Cable Park to open in April at Lake Lanier Islands

By Staff
LAKE LANIER ISLANDS - Local businesswoman, Krista Goodrich of Masterpiece Mixers Paint & Party Studios, has partnered with Will Kurhanewicz of South Eastern Networking Solutions and formerly of New Wave Cable Park, to launch Wake the Lake Cable Park as part of the water adventure experience offered at Lanier World at Lake Lanier Islands.

The new cable park will have features such as a double-sided ramp and will accommodate several different types of watersports. A cable park is a pulley system that allows individuals to wakeboard, waterski, wakeskate, kneeboard or tube while being pulled by a cable. There is no boat required.

Cable parks are popular in Europe and are making their way into the water sports scene stateside as there are now over 60 cable parks in the U.S. Wake the Lake Cable Park plans to rent gear such as wakeboards, skis, life jackets and helmets or you can bring your own. The park is planning on having several pro and amateur events as well as summer camps, demonstrations, water safety courses and more.

Accessible by boat or car, Wake the Lake Cable Park will be located in the cove opposite of the new docks at Sunset Cove.

The park opens in April and will operate weekends through Memorial Day and then daily all summer long. Park hours are 10:00-6:00, with some night riding sessions available as well as other special events.

Riders can purchase a pass for an hour, 2 hour hours, half day or full day and reservations are recommended. There will be a limited number (50) of season passes available for sale on a first-come first-served basis and will include a parking pass to LanierWorld. Season passes can be purchased by calling 678-409-9053 and are currently available. For questions or additional information, please contact Krista Goodrich at Krista@newwavecablepark.com or by calling 678-409-9053.
