You can also cool off with ice cream, drinks, and other sweet treats before heading back out into the sun.

Of course, the main reasons to visit Dollywood’s Splash Country are the rides and attractions! Tennessee’s first and only water coaster, River Rush is four drops along four stories of a hydromagnetic ride, weaving through dark, exciting tunnels! Bear Mountain Fire Tower is perfect for kids, with multiple levels, water cannons, lots of interesting water features, and seven slides! Downbound Float Trip is great for those who want to relax and see what the park has to offer. Stay cool as you float along the more than 1,500 feet of “river” before enjoying the 200-foot waterfall along this ride!

At Little Creek Falls, kids can hang out and play in the water. Little Creek Falls provides a shaded area and there are seven canopies that can be reserved as well. Children under 48 inches must be accompanied by an adult during play time here. A family-friendly ride that takes passengers down a 700-foot-long riveting waterslide, Raging River Rapids is tons of fun. Guests will enjoy a whitewater-like experience as they careen down the slide at top speeds. Another fun part of the park is the Cascades, an 8,000-square-foot lagoon style pool. This part of the park has a seating area, an active geyser, interactive elements, and giant cascading waterfalls! Families will also love the 12 waterside retreats and 9 waterside canopies available for rent here.
