Soaky Mountain Waterpark
Soaky Mountain Waterpark is a 50-acre wet wonderland right in Sevierville. It opened in June of 2020, making it one of the latest additions to the area’s attractions. You’ll find thrill rides, family rides, kids’ attractions, and great food and drink options at this modern mountain park. Looking for an adventure? Try the Avalaunch WatercoasterSoaky Mountain
The Avalaunch is a first-of-its-kind thrill ride that puts two people on a tube and sends them up 3 hills, through 4 saucer turns, over valleys, and even up a wall before plummeting into whitewater finish. If the Avalaunch is too wild, consider taking a float down Black Bear Rapids. The Rapids are anything but mild, though, as this adventure river features wave action for a fun float. Plan a visit to Soaky Mountain during your late-Spring and Summer Smoky Mountain vacations. The park is open to the public daily. Day admission tickets start at $39.99.
