Dollywood’s Splash Country opens 2005 season with Bear Mountain Fire Tower

Dollywood’s Splash Country celebrated its fifth season with the opening of the new $2 million Bear Mountain Fire Tower. It is an interactive, multi-level water-filled attraction built around a central play structure. The attraction features various water-based activities including a 1,000-gallon bucket situated on the highest level. After warning bells sound indicating that a fire has been spotted, the large bucket spills, setting off a chain reaction of subsequent, smaller buckets throughout the lower levels creating a four-alarm soaking for the entire family. Bear Mountain Fire Tower’s firefighting theme is complete with hand cannons, hoses, buckets, escape chutes and ladders.
