I Love Atlanta

American Adventures

250 N Cobb Pkwy, Marietta. | 770-424-9283

A little amusement park (owned by Six Flags) with a carousel, small roller coaster, ferris wheel, a train, a game room, and even bumper cars. Indoors, there’s the “Foam Factory” — a three-level rig, connected by stairs and tube-slides, in which kids of all ages shoot harmless foam balls at each other — and an arcade. Birthday parties welcome.
