Enjoy Dollywood’s Splash Country Even More in 2016


We’re doing something a little different for our summer family getaway this year – we’re meeting up with almost all of my husband’s extended family at Dollywood & Dollywood’s Splash Country this weekend!

But don’t worry if you can’t make it out this weekend because I have some great news to share: thanks to such strong visitation to both Dollywood and Dollywood’s Splash Country in 2016, they are adding operating days to the calendars of both properties to allow guests more opportunities to make memories together this year.

You heard me right – now you can enjoy Dollywood and Dollywood’s Splash Country even more in 2016!


This is especially good news for those of us who are (Super) Passholders, but equally exciting for anyone looking for a way to cool off from the summer heat. Now everyone has a little more time to enjoy the refreshment of Dollywood’s Splash Country thanks to five new operating days, Aug. 15-19. The award-winning water park now will be open daily through Aug. 21 and on weekends through Labor Day.

The kids and I have already been to Splash Country once this year and as you can see, had a blast on all the water rides, but especially the water coaster:


The 2016 season has been an exciting year for Dollywood’s Splash Country as TripAdvisor named the Smoky Mountain destination a Top-10 water park, based on reviews and ratings on its website. Even Splash Country lifeguards collected accolades this season when Ellis & Associates, a firm that specializes in international aquatic safety and risk management, awarded them with Gold and Platinum Awards, the company’s highest designations, for their diligence in guarding the water.

Dollywood after 3 free

Originally, we were just planning on heading to Splash Country on Tuesday to celebrate my daughter’s birthday, but I didn’t know Dollywood’s “After 3, Next Day Free!” promotion applied to the waterpark as well, which means the whole family can meet up on Monday night as well. Now that’s what I call value.

Stay tuned as I’ll be sharing even more family fun from this trip to Dollywood and Splash Country next week, but don’t wait to take advantage of this great deal! Visit Dollywood.com for more information.
