Soaky Mountain Waterpark coming to Sevierville

Soaky Mountain Waterpark, a “mountain-modern” themed waterpark, is slated to open Summer 2020 in Sevierville, Tennessee. From Wilderness Resorts and Waterparks, the new $90 million waterpark is currently under construction. Aquatic Development Group (ADG) has designed and is building the new $90 million waterpark.

Soaky Mountain Waterpark is a $90 million project that is expected to add nearly 500 full- and part-time jobs to the Sevierville area. It is anticipated to draw over 400,000 visitors annually. It will feature two main wave attractions including a massive, 35,000 square foot wave pool capable of generating waves up to six feet high and a winding wave river spanning an area of 24,000 square feet, both designed by ADG and powered by ADG’s WaveTek wave systems. There will be a heavily-themed and exciting kids’ play-and-spray feature with multiple slides for both the tame and the daring. There will also be a kid-friendly activity pool with smaller versions of the other towering slides found throughout the park; an adventure pool with a WIBIT water obstacle course, a flat-water cabana pool for relaxing poolside, a double FlowRider for the surfer in all of us, and four large slide complexes that will provide thrills and excitement all day long. From ProSlide Technologies, Slides will include a one-of-a-kind water coaster, a family ride tower with two five-person raft rides, a tubing tower with five flumes all featuring unique and thrilling one or two-person tubing experiences, two high-intensity body slides, and a four-lane, head-first mat racing challenge to satisfy everyone’s racing desires.

Wilderness Resorts and Waterparks currently also owns and operates Wilderness at the Smokies in Sevierville, and Wilderness Resort, Glacier Canyon Lodge, and Wilderness on the Lake, Wild Rock Golf Course, Sundara Spa and Glacier Canyon Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells.
