5 Ways to Cool off in Pigeon Forge This Summer
Summer is officially upon us. Nothing says summertime fun better than a little splishin’ and splashin’ in the water! Here are some great water attractions to help you stay cool in Pigeon Forge this summer.
Dollywood’s Splash Country– Voted one of America’s top 10 waterparks. This wonderful gem hidden in a beautiful mountain setting has 35 acres of water activities for you to enjoy… pools, slides, a lazy river, a wave pool, and splash pads. New for the 2017 season is a 6 lane racing slide called TailSpin Racer. It is 5 stories tall and longer than a football field! You will be filled with excitement as you race to the end. If you want a little personal shade/privacy for your family for the day, rent one of the retreats or canopies on property. These fill up fast so make sure to arrive early if you want to secure one of them! Also, don’t forget about the “Arrive after 3, Next Day free” policy or if you plan to go for several days, take advantage of the “3 Days, 2 Parks” special that is offered online for $99 each ticket! These great savings allow you more fun time in the water!
H2OGO– The Outdoor Gravity Park in Pigeon Forge offers a very unique experience and is the only one of its kind in the United States. Their H2OGO is a water ride like no other! You will slip and slide all the way down a 1000 ft hill while enclosed in an 11 ft transparent plastic sphere. You will laugh, get wet, slide around, and be surprised by what comes next as you experience this fun adventure. Make sure to bring along a swimsuit and a towel. Beware, one time down the hill won’t be enough.
Country Cascades Waterpark Resort– If you are looking for a fun place to stay in Pigeon Forge, check this place out. They have a waterpark exclusively for their guests. They offer an indoor pool, a 300 ft long body slide called River Run, a raft slide called River Chaser, and Splashaway Bay for the kids that has a smaller slide and a massive tipping bucket for some extra water fun. You will never want to leave your hotel!
Find some water in the Smokies– Do a little hiking up to one of the water falls in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or find a stream and enjoy the natural running water that is so serene and peaceful. It is a great way to spend a summer day and typically the outdoor temperatures in the higher elevations of the mountains are cooler too!
Blaster Boats at the Track– Have a water battle with your family and friends on these fun bumper style boats. You can spray each other with the water cannons on each boat and there are also water cannons located around the pool which will add to the fun. You will be soaked by the time you get off! While you are at the Track, there are plenty of other activities for your family to do like go karts, an arcade, and even an area called Kid’s Country for the smaller kids.
