Sliding down Ponce City Market's Skyline Park
I spent time exploring my own neighborhood last week.It reinforces my theory that we need to take time to be tourists in our own town!
So a fairly new place, Ponce City Market, has just opened it's roof, and it is unlike any other rooftop in the city. It is called Skyline Park. It's a mini amusement park, that is certainly open to children...but seems to be geared for grown up kids in particular. (Every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday it is open only for 21+ after 5pm.)
There are midway games, mini golf, and a giant slide - that of course, me and my pals took part of. Of course, there are food and drinks available and one of the best (new) skyline views of Midtown Atlanta!
However, I do have a little issue with the cost of admission. Yes! There is a cost to enter the area. There isn't a cost to enter Ponce City Market, but the rooftop amusement park costs $10 for an adult and $7 for kids 12 and under; free for babies 3 and under. A little extreme, if you ask me. Because on top of that, you have to pay $1-3 for the midway games, and for tickets for the other activities. Count food and drinks, and you're near Six Flag prices.
Your best bet will be to really think about a trip there, check for coupons and Groupons and other such specials.
Anyway, here's a video of the fun we had on our trips down the slide.
Got a tip? Let us know and we'll post it here!
