Soaky Mountain Waterpark will open for its second season on May 15-16, 2021, and then daily starting May 22. 

Season pass holders will get an early sneak peak on preview day, Friday, May 21.

Finally, Soaky Mountain will be hosting an official Grand Opening for tourism industry partners on Friday, June 4 at 9 am.

Today, officials announced some new and exciting updates for its 2021 season.

“We can’t wait for another summer of fun at our amazing waterpark,” said Dave Andrews, general manager of Soaky Mountain Waterpark.

“2020 was truly a challenging year for us, first we had to get our construction completed while the country was shut down … and then we were only able to be at reduced capacity levels as a safety precaution.”

Andrews said that is why Soaky Mountain will properly celebrate the new waterpark on the June 4 celebration, since they were unable to do so in 2020.
