SkyView Atlanta opens with free rides for moms, Dave & Buster’s resumes operations

With Gov. Brian Kemp announcing that some Georgia businesses can reopen with certain safety stipulations in place, a number of Atlanta-area attractions have opened their doors to the public.

Here’s a look at some of those spots:

Bad Axe Throwing

Want to take out some quarantine anger? Head to Bad Axe Throwing and let the axes fly. The company’s mission is to bring the thrill of a traditional Canadian backyard pastime to urban communities.

“We are committed to providing comfortable and safe entertainment experiences at our venues,” the company’s website notes. “We will be implementing best practices in cleaning facilities, axes, supplies and ensuring no patron or staff that show symptoms are allowed in the facilities.”

Bad Axe Throwing’s operating hours vary week to week. Check the website for dates and times.

Battle & Brew

The video game restaurant reopens its doors on Friday, May 8 with additional hand soap, sanitizer and paper towels. Additionally, gaming will be available but like the dining area, guests will be spaced out. The bar will not be available for seating.

Dave & Buster’s

The popular destination to eat, drink, play and watch sports re-opened its doors in Marietta and McDonough in compliance with local government guidelines along with amped up safety and cleaning guidelines. The Lawrenceville location plans to open on May 7.

WE ARE OPEN! During the COVID-19 outbreak we have switched over to a drive thru option. This allows you to enjoy viewing...

Pettit Creek Farms

Visitors can still experience all the animals like horses, kangaroos, camels, goats, pigs and more - but now, from the comfort of their cars on a trip to the Cartersville farm.

“My daughter, she got to studying the restrictions and how to comply with it, and see what we could do, and she said, ‘Daddy, I think this will work,’" farm owner Scott Allen said.

Visitors have to make a reservation ahead of time and stay in their cars on the visit.

Roof at Ponce City Market

Atlanta’s iconic outdoor entertainment venue with 360-degree views of the Atlanta skyline has opened with restricted operations. To ensure the safety of guests, employees, and the community, the venue, which includes several open-air spaces, is taking extra care and precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. These precautions include reducing capacity by more than 50%, facilitating cash-free transactions only, using menus that will be disposed of after each use, offering disposable plates, glasses, and silverware, among others.

“Reopening in the safest and best way possible is our top priority. At this time, we feel confident that with our unique 80,000 square feet open-air rooftop and outdoor seating, we can more than adhere to the recommended 6 feet social distancing guidelines and can continue to keep our employees and guests safe while we resume business,” said Mandy Slater, from the Roof at Ponce City Market.

Of note, the Heege Tower and slide will remain closed until further notice.

SkyView Atlanta

The popular Atlanta Ferris wheel opens on Friday, May 8. The plan is to open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays to start. The SkyView Ferris wheel features 42 climate-controlled + private gondolas providing guests with breathtaking panoramic views of downtown Atlanta and the surrounding metropolitan area. On Mother’s Day weekend, all moms fly free with the purchase of a regular priced ticket.

Terminus Wake Park

Terminus is just off Interstate 75, about 45 minutes north of Atlanta. It’s a cable wake facility. Terminus instituted some changes with its reopening including requiring online bookings, only offering two-hour passes, social distancing will be required with designated spots in line, no rental gear is available, minors must be accompanied by an adult and no entry is you’re experiencing any symptoms. The Aqua Park is not open at this time.
