Dolly Parton opens a new waterpark, Dolly’s Splash Country, near her popular theme park in Pigeon Forge, TN

Adjacent to Dollywood theme park, Dolly opened Dolly’s Splash Country in 2001. The water adventure park sits on 35 acres and is a $20 million investment featuring a 25,000 sq.-ft. wave pool, a family raft ride, a lazy river, an interactive children’s area, multi-person tube rides, two “extreme” body slides, shaded lounge areas and a restaurant.

Amusement fans now have two summer experiences when they visit Dollywood: roller coasters or wave pools. The waterpark operates Memorial Day to Labor Day.
