Stone Mountain Park Lasershow & VIP Terrace Seating

Last weekend, David and I were invited to attend the new Lasershow at Stone Mountain and check out their VIP Terrace Seating. We were so excited to go – the Lasershow is always a blast!

When we arrived, we gathered with other metro-area bloggers to get a behind-the-scenes look at the Lasershow.

Did you know that Stone Mountain has the longest-running laser show in the world? It's been going since 1983! There is much planning that goes into putting it together.  In fact, this year's Lasershow was in the planning stages all the way back in Spring of 2013! Wow!  Here is some cool information on Mountainvision:
  • Mountainvision technology was introduced in 2011 and features 3D like effects without the need for 3D glasses 
  • Mountainvision is four to five times the size of an IMAX screen and taller than the Statue of Liberty.
  • Mountainvision would be similar to purchasing a 5,500 inch high definition TV.
This year they've updated the music that accompanies the Lasershow with some of my favorite songs – Happy, Let It Go, and Treasure, to name a few. 

Before the show,  we all enjoyed a delicious buffet that included BBQ, fried chicken, potato salad, baked beans, rolls, Coca Cola drinks and ice cream.  They sure do make yummy food at Stone Mountain Park - we've never anything but great food there!

After that scrumptious dinner, we headed down to our VIP Terrace seating, which is located beside the lawn. Comfy padded seats, Coca Cola drinks (including bottled water), Dipping Dots and popcorn awaited us! The kids were able to run and play tag on the lawn. 

Comfy seats for VIP Terrace Seating.

                                         The view from our Terrace Seating was just perfect for
                                                      enjoying the Lasershow comfortably!

Then the Bubble Man stopped beside our terrace and provided lots of bubbles for the kiddos to chase, so there were plenty of things to keep them occupied until it was dark.  That's when the magic begins!  David ended up laying in the grass with some of the other kid to watch, while I enjoyed my comfy chair on the Terrace next to him. I enjoy the traditions within the Lasershow and was pleased to find those are still in there! My favorites include: 
  • Heroes” - a salute to everyday heroes such as doctors, fire and rescue, police, etc.
  • Georgia Artists” - a tribute to favorite Peach State artists such as R.E.M., The Zac Brown Band, Ray Charles, Outkast, Indigo Girls, Phillip Phillips, Little Richard and James Brown.
  • The Devil Went Down to Georgia”- homage to the Charlie Daniels Band.
  • An American Trilogy” - an Elvis Presley segment bringing the Memorial Carving to life with lights and laser effects.
The new songs made great additions too! My son hasn't been to the Lasershow since he was 8 and he had a ball this year, not to mention he was completely worn out after all the running around he did. The fireworks are loud but spectacular! Oh, and don't be like me and forget your insect repellent – bugs always munch on me after dark, and this time was no exception. So pack it in your bag just to be safe!

If you choose to get Adventure passes, you will be able to take advantage of all of the fun attractions Stone Mountain offers – The Great Barn, Geyser Towers, Camp Highlands Outpost & Skyhike (ropes courses, zip line and rock climbing walls), The 4D Theater (currently showing Journey 2: The Mysterious Island 4D Experience), the Antebellum Plantation, the Scenic Railroad, Great Locomotive Chase Adventure Golf, Summit Skyride and more! Every time we've visited we've had great experiences at Stone Mountain Park. There is so much to do and see.

Collecting fruit in the Great Barn for points!

He's getting so big!
