Six Flags White Water was originally opened as "White Water Atlanta" in 1983. Built and owned by the Herschend Family Entertainment Corporation, it was sold to Six Flags Inc. in 1999.
The large parking lot was used as a satellite parking facility for the 1996 Summer Olympics. In the summer of 1998, the park was the site of an E. coli outbreak, which received national publicity because one of the children infected was the child of Atlanta Braves baseball player Walt Weiss.
