The tour culminates with a cruise on Stone Mountain Lake. You may even get the chance to take the wheel and drive the Duck. Come see what everyone is quacking about.


Summit Skyride

The park’s top attraction is the Summit SkyRide. The high-speed cable car transports visitors more than 800 feet to the top of Stone Mountain, where you'll be treated to breathtaking views of the Atlanta Skyline and even the Appalachian Mountains. My family had hiked Stone Mountain in the past, but this was our first ride up on the cable car! It was an exhilarating ride, and so fun to see more of the park (and beyond!) as we rode higher. It's definitely the best view of Downtown Atlanta we've ever seen. Trams leave every five or so minutes, and you’re free to take one down at any time.


Lasershow Spectacular in Mountainvision

The Lasershow Spectacular in Mountainvision® is a not-to-be-missed Atlanta tradition that will wow spectators with state-of-the-art digital graphics and awe-inspiring effects. The Lasershow features lights, iconic music, lasers, epic fireworks, and jaw-dropping fire effects. Three flame cannons add a punch to the show by sending a trio of flames nearly one-hundred feet into the air.  Enjoy the show from the comfort of one of the terraces which showcase an outstanding view of the mountain, its famous carving and the world’s longest running Lasershow.

Event Package Inclusions:

Robert Trent Jones Sr. takes credit for the design of the Stonemont course which opened in 1969.  The par 70 layout, framed by numerous stands of Georgia pines is challenging due to the narrow fairways and bunker placement.  Golfers will appreciate the bent grass greens which complement the rolling, manicured fairways of Bermuda.  The Stonemont course has had the privilege to have hosted numerous Georgia amateur and professional golf events over the years including the recent 2017 U.S. Open #2 Local Qualifier.

Stone Mountain has two hotels, the Inn and the Resort. They are both managed by Marriott and we had originally planned to stay at the Stone Mountain Inn. We recently met with the Marriott management team who allowed us to inspect both hotels and we decided that the resort would be better suited for our CSGA Stone Mountain Event. So we have upgraded your host hotel without changing the package prices. Our group will stay at the AAA Four Diamond rated Atlanta Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort rather than the 3 star Stone Mountain Inn.
