FANTASTIC SHOW!!!!!!! The staff inside the park were professional and friendly. Stone Mountain have their act together for moving the traffic at a steady pace at the end of the Laser and Fireworks show.

This was an amazing carving and I could not even wrap my mind around the fact that some one could stand in the horses nose!! It is very grand and I think this is a good place to take a family.

Stone mountain itself is incredible but the carving is really impressive as well! We also watched the light show which incorporates the carving in a really interesting and cool way.

There are many viewing platforms to see the carving. Don's miss the view from the cable car tram. It was breath taking.

Climb the mountain!! And then hang out on the lawn, relax and appreciate this view. There is also a museum (not worth the cost to get in) that is interesting if you do purchase a park pass.

It was a great experience! It was amazing. We loved the carving, but we did not like the laser show at all!!!! It was pretty bad. Make sure to go to the top of the mountain with the cable car,

This visit was average at best. The carving is definitely an engineering marvel, although the subjects depicted wouldn't normally be up my alley. The evening lazer light show is dated from a technological point of view. Overall just really not worth the price of admission.

Going to Stone Mountain Park, you are going to see the Mountain right away; it's huge. But I kept wondering where the actual carving was. It's not like being at Mount Rushmore. However, when you finally do see the thing it's quite impressive. Make sure...More

$15 parking fee, then if you want to ride any of the rides you can purchase different kinds of arm bands, otherwise you can visit the park, see the carving and gift shops

It usually begins at 9 pm and I can purchase the tickets online any time available. I purchased it at around 3pm when I was traveling to Stone Mountain.
