American Adventures was a family entertainment center and small amusement park located just north of Atlanta and adjacent to Six Flags White Water waterpark.
The park opened in 1990 and over the years the attractions included miniature golf, go-karts, a large indoor arcade with video and redemption games, plus a small collection of amusement park rides, most appealing to children age 12 and younger.
The largest ride at the amusement park was a powered roller coaster named Ridgeline Racer. Additional family rides found at the park were a Tilt-a-Whirl, Bumper Cars, Swinging Pirate Ship, and Super Slide. For youngsters the park's collection of kiddie rides included a Mini Tea Cups, Miniature Trucks, Barnstormer Plane Ride, Mini Ferris Wheel, Swing Ride, and Balloon Ride.
Over the years the park replaced its indoor miniature golf course for an interactive theater and later the park's original antique Carousel was replaced for the Foam Factory– a foam ball play structure where participants shot foam balls at each other from multiple levels.
Admission to American Adventures was always free. Rides and the entertainment center attractions were priced individually requiring tickets and eventually a pay-one-price option was offered. The park was frequently cross-promoted along with the neighboring White Water waterpark.
In 1999 American Adventures along with White Water was purchased and became part of the Six Flags chain of theme parks and waterparks. Too small to be expanded and re-branded as a Six Flags Theme Park, the park continued to operate under the same moniker until it was announced in February 2010 that the park would be closed "due to circumstances beyond our control." The park remains closed to this day, likely a victim of the economic turmoil due to the housing market collapse and Six Flags own bankruptcy.
In recent years some of the American Adventures facilities have been reportedly used by Six Flags White Water for administrative offices and an employee cafeteria. The property is still owned by Six Flags and the neighboring Six Flags White Water continues to operate seasonally.
