Six Flags Atlantis was a Six Flags water park in Hollywood, Floridamarker, that occupied several acres on the southeastern intersection of Stirling Road (State Road 848) and I-95.

The park included a wave pool, a lake with water ski shows, a seven-story slide tower, picnic area, stores & arcades, shows, and activities for all ages.

History

Begun as a private venture originally known as 'Atlantis the Water Kingdom', funding ran out before construction ended. The park sat partially completed for several months before Six Flags opened it around 1982 as "Six Flags Atlantis."

In 1989 the park was sold. The new owners revived the original name, 'Atlantis the Water Kingdom,' and successfully reconfigured Atlantis as a smaller, more efficient park. Following damage during Hurricane Andrew in 1992, the park was closed and the assets auctioned off.

Today

Today most of the area is now occupied by retail shopping. A Kmart rests where its wave pool was once located. The functional submarine once present in the Atlantis parking lot could at one point still be seen at Grand Prix Race-O-Rama (now a Boomers!) a few blocks north of the park.
