We hope you can join the WILD team at the Wilderness at the Smokies resort for the debut of an exciting new ride! The grand opening for the waterslide will take place at the Wilderness at the Smokies resort on Thursday, April 16

The new waterslide continues the Sevierville resort’s tradition of debuting a significant expansion of new features for guests to enjoy year after year. Located in the resort’s Lake Wilderness outdoor waterpark, guests will start their adventure atop a 60-foot tower, where riders will board a two-person raft and experience climbs, drops, “free fall” and finish with a big splash!  A water flow of 1,500 gallons per minute adds more fuel to the wet fun of this high-speed water experience.

The grand opening event will also showcase the outdoor waterpark’s most popular attractions – the Wild Vortex, a 66-foot tall AquaLoopTM, the Southeast’s only near-vertical translucent looping waterslide, and the Cyclone Racer, a four-lane high-speed waterslide that turns guests into hydro-powered drag racers – as well as Adventure Forest, a family adventure area with nine different attractions including mini-bowling, a climbing wall and laser tag.
