The Waterpark From a Gatlinburg Visitors Perspective:
“I thoroughly enjoyed the water park. It was interesting that some people were dressed in swimsuits while other people (mostly parents) were fully dressed. The park provides a good amount of seating for family members who just want to watch.
The tube rides were so much fun. In particular, the one with the big cone looking tube was unlike any other tube ride I’ve been on. The wave pool was also lots of fun. My favorite activity was probably the indoor surfing ride. They put you on a board and then you ride the waves that a machine spits out, but you’re only in like two inches of water and the board is small so it‘s easily managed. I’ve never surfed before so I absolutely loved it. Young and old were taking turns trying it.
I also liked that it‘s small yet big. One could easily find children playing nearby and not have to worry about losing them in a huge water park.”
Not only does the park feature water rides, it also has a mezzanine with a restaurant, and a retail shop. Another feature is it’s electronic game room which caters to those who need a break from the water.
