Terminus Wake Park
Terminus Wake Park is Georgia’s first cable wake facility designed for all ages and skill levels! We have two full-sized cable lakes, a Learn-to-Ride cable, and the Aqua Park – our inflatable obstacle course on the water.
A cable system allows participants to enjoy towed water sports without a boat. It can tow nearly anything a boat can to include wakeboarders, wakeskaters, water-skiers, kneeboarders and more. Six Towers are placed around the edge of a lake and hold a running cable 32′ above the water similar to a snow resort T-bar chairlift. The system is driven by an electric motor and can carry up to 6 people at the same time. Cable parks are the most effective way for beginners, intermediate and high ability riders to get out on the water! It’s a great way to introduce new riders to the sport of wakeboarding and a very economical alternative to the tremendous investment required for boat ownership and high gas prices.
