2. Splash Country (Seasonal)
If you prefer water slides over roller coasters but still want to enjoy the family-friendly fun the folks at Dollywood are known for, we suggest you head next door to Dollywood’s Splash Country. The perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day, this Pigeon Forge water park is packed full of daring slides, kids’ splash pads, a wave pool and a lazy river. There are also several comfortable lounge chairs you and your family can use to relax and take a break in between these fun activities. Of course, this attraction is only open seasonally.
