About Soaky Mountain Waterpark

Soaky Mountain Waterpark, the world’s most cleverly named waterpark, opened last month in Sevierville, Tenn. 

This mountain-modern standalone park is a huge addition to area attractions at a whopping 50 acres.

This brand-new attraction is colorful, well thought out and meticulously planned. The chairs have been custom made, and the umbrellas are colored to display a sunset fading from pinks and reds to yellows and oranges as guests walk through the park. 

Soaky Mountain Waterpark is part of the Wilderness Resorts and Waterparks family, but it is the first independent waterpark that is not tied to a resort.

This waterpark was a $90 million project. It is projected to employ 400-500 full and part-time employees in the area.

A First of its Kind Watercoaster

If you need more convincing to visit the waterpark, the Avalaunch Watercoaster, a first of its kind watercoaster, might be reason enough.

“ProSlide, the creator of this slide, has really outdone themselves with this unbelievably thrilling attraction,” said Dave Andrews, general manager of Soaky Mountain. “It combines a RocketBLAST® watercoaster with four FlyingSAUCER® high-speed turns and a massive sweeping TornadoWAVE finish. The excitement and anticipation of this breathtaking ride are definitely not for the faint at heart.” 

Riders can expect to feel G-forces on this two-person tube ride as they accelerate around curves, travel uphill through blast zones and zoom through turns with RocketBLAST® boosters with a 60-foot TornadoWAVE finish.

“What sets Soaky Mountain apart is the wonderful attractions,” said Andrews.

Something for Everyone

If the watercoaster sounds a bit above your comfort level, you can still relax knowing that there is something for everyone at Soaky Mountain Waterpark. 

Boomers Bay and The Hive have play zones and pint-sized slides for even the smallest members of the family. 

Adult waterpark goers will enjoy Coyote Springs, a flat-water cabana pool away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the park. The waterpark also has two bars for adult beverages.

For extra comfort, private cabanas with optional bar service are also available for rent.

Safer at Play

Guests will be asked to gather in groups of ten or less people and remain six feet apart from other groups. Signage has been placed throughout the park to remind guests to social distance.

Guests are encouraged to wear a facial covering in areas that social distancing is not possible, such as bathrooms and queue lines for restaurants.
