Splashing New Water Ride to Join Dollywood

See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

Although summer’s heat is far from over, Dollywood is ready to amp up the summer fun with its early announcement of a new water ride to be added to Dollywood’s Splash Country for summer 2017.

The new TailSpin Racer will be a $2-million addition, standing five stories tall near the Big River Pavilion. Up to six guests will race each other on mats on the ride’s spiraling tube, traveling about the length of a football field with drops and curves before a finish to determine a winner.

Splash Country features 35 water rides, from tame to scream worthy. The park is currently open weekends through Labor Day and will reopen for daily fun next summer.
