I love summer. If it involves sunshine, the water and an opportunity to get some new tan lines, you can count me in. As the weather gets warmer, I get more and more excited about all the summer fun that East Tennessee has to offer. One place that I am so excited to visit this summer is Dollywood’s Splash Country. This water park is tucked into the mountainside of the Smokies, offering thrills and relaxation for all ages. A day spent here is guaranteed to be the perfect summer day, I promise.
How to Visit FOR FREE
You actually can visit Dollywood’s Splash Country for free and have the perfect summer getaway when you make reservations at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa. From now until Sept. 6, guests staying at the resort will receive a 10% discount per night at the resort and up to four complimentary Dollywood’s Splash Country tickets! This allows guests to save up to $200, which is amazing. This also will allow guests free access to the resort trolley which will carry them from Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort to the water park.
If guests wish to take their personal vehicle, though, they will receive free parking in the guest lot, which usually costs $20 per vehicle. If you’re not sold yet, it gets better. This offer also allows guests to enter the park an hour before the park opens on Saturday mornings, allowing them to ride the best and most popular rides with little to no wait times! Book this offer!
Choosing to “Splash and Stay” at Dollywood is a surefire way to make the most out of a summer getaway in the Smokies. I’ve already texted my family about this offer, just because I’m so excited about it. Free tickets to Dollywood’s Splash Country has me sold, just because of what all there is to do inside the park!
Why Dollywood’s Splash Country
Dollywood’s Splash Country isn’t your typical water park. It was recently voted a Top Ten Outdoor Water Park in USA Today’s 10Best Reader’s Choice awards, which isn’t surprising, considering all the fun and beauty it has to offer. The most unique thing about it is that the slides actually take you down the side of the Smokies, making you feel like you’re actually on a Smoky Mountain river adventure.
One of the things I love most about Dollywood’s parks is that there is something for everyone. Dollywood’s Splash Country offers the state’s tallest twin speed towers, a water coaster, lagoon-style pool, leisurely tube slides and interactive play areas for kids.
In order to provide guests with the best experience, Dollywood’s Splash Country’s award-winning aquatics team (made up of the only Platinum-award winning lifeguards in Tennessee) is devoted to ensuring that all guests are safe. Life jackets are available for free to all guests, so swimming abilities never stop a guest from joining in on the fun! The amazing lifeguards are super-attentive, friendly, and are always willing to share their own unique Dollywood memories with the guests—when they’re off duty, of course!
Dollywood’s Splash Country is a MUST for your summer bucket list. Plus, with the special offer that you receive by staying at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa, the perfect summer getaway is already planned for you! This offer doesn’t end until September, so you have plenty of time to make plans to head on over for the Smoky Mountain adventure of a lifetime! I promise you won’t be disappointed!
