Dollywood's Splash Country
 

The wildly popular Pigeon Forge attraction opens its doors for the 2014 on May 17. If food, fun, family and wet adventures aren’t enough reason to visit, we have three more that will have you packing your swimsuit and hitting the road.

1. Tennessee’s Only Water Coaster

The RiverRush is Tennessee’s first and only water coaster. Gliding through the Smoky Mountains, this coaster races through four drops up to four stories with lots of water. With this ride, you can cool down in the summer sun while enjoying the thrill of a roller coaster. You’ll shoot past trees and twist through tunnels, and there’s really no water ride any better.

2. Sunny Money and Time Saver Pass

Both of these guest services make visiting the Pigeon Forge attraction even more fun and worry-free. Sunny Money is a cashless payment wristband that you can purchase at any store in the park, so there’s no need to carry around cash or cards that you’ll worry about all day.

The Time Saver Pass is another wristband system offered by the park, so guests can reserve their spots in line without waiting in the heat of the day. After renting a wristband, you’ll only have to reserve your spot at one of the park’s five kiosks. Then, just have fun until it’s your turn to take a ride!

3. Smoky Mountain Vacation Lodging 

If you’re interested in escaping to the Smoky Mountains this summer, consider staying in one of our suites at the Vacation Lodge hotel in Pigeon Forge. We have a variety of rooms available for all types of mountain visitors, from couples to multi-generational families, so this is a great reason to take a long getaway. Call one of our reservationists at (800) 468-1998 to schedule your next vacation in the Smokies.
