Visitors to Dolly’s water park, Dollywood’s Splash Country, enjoyed new serenity and tranquility with a splash of adventure at The Cascades™, the water park’s new $2.8 million leisure pool. Dolly said,
"The Cascades takes me back to my childhood when me and my brothers and sisters were lucky enough to discover a little mountain cove where we could cool off from the summertime heat. We’d keep that swimming hole a secret as long as we could, but I’m looking forward to sharing The Cascades with everybody!"
The Cascades featured a lagoon-style, 8,000-sq-ft., beach-entry pool. Surrounded by the lush landscaping of trees and plants, the pool’s centerpiece is a waterfall that spills from a giant rock grotto. With 25 interactive elements, The Cascades includes four slides that weave throughout the grotto. In addition, guests are able to feel the refreshing effects of 20-foot water sprays from a geyser situated on the pool’s edge. A contoured seating area offers a respite from the activity. Younger guests discovered a series of small coves around the pool’s perimeter filled with slides, misters and bubblers.
