Stone Mountain Park invested in new Light Show technology that boasts ten times more lumens, ten times larger video projection, and ten times more laser beams than the classic Lasershow. This summer’s show is bigger, and more breathtaking than ever with completely immersive lighting, more fireworks, lasers, and flame effects, new music tracks, and a Drone Show with 250 color-changing drones synchronized to music. The show will create a magnificent display of light and sound that transports guests across the country through music and light.
