The carving was amazing! You can see the time and detail that went into the carving. The light show at night on the carving is so beautiful.

This is amazing to see up close and far away. The cable car allows for interesting angles to view it. Ride the Blue car, its closest to the carving.

I am by no means a history buff but this is one area of history I researched. To think that scaffolding was set up and people risked their lives making this is just amazing to me. I can't say enough about it.

The carving, in and of itself is awe inspiring. How one could do this work, maintaining perspective is mind boggling. But if you go to the trouble of visiting the sculpture, hand around for the laser show. It's terrific! Entertaining! Hope to go back

Didn't realize it, but took a friend from Germany to the Laser Show on the mountain carving couple years ago. When we left, her comment was "Americans are very patriotic, aren't they". That got me think, she was right. Stone Mountain Park has a Laser...More

Impressive size of carving on side of mountain. You can walk up or ride cable car to top. You can see the city of Atlanta on a clear day.

It is always better with the laser show. Check the website to ensure that it will definitely be running when you plan to go.
