Dolly's Splash Country is moving along "swimmingly." The speed slides have been started and the wave pool is well underway. Despite bad weather they expect to be able to open in May as promised!
You can view pictures of the progress of the new waterpark at the Dollywood site.

I really think more parks should get water parks. Especially the small classic park like kennywood, knobels and knots. Hopefully all the parks will have them. Kennywood really needs one.
They also need about 3 new roller coasters. And some more new rides. I dislike classical parks. They should keep up with technology.
Fear all of Kennywood

You dislike "classical" parks and your name is kennywood hehe. I love waterparks myself and if there is one near the park I am visiting I will make sure I go there. When I went to BGW I went to Water Country USA which was VERY fun not to mention it was raining and there was NO ONE in the park that day. I went to Soak City at Cedar Point and at PKD I actually think I spent more time in the waterpark than the amusement park hehe.

Anybody know exactly where Dolly's waterpark is located in relation to the park? Is it across the street from the entranceway they reconstructed at the back of the park this year?

It is actually at the behind the very back of the very last 2 parking lots. In relation to the park I believe it would be to the West of the park.
The waterpark is being built in what used to be an overflow parking area that they haven't used in as long as I've been going there. It's just too dang far from the park entrance (well over a mile away) and you had to catch the Pigeon Forge Trolly to get to the tram to get to the front door, a little too much, don't you think.
Therefore I believe a major reason that they are doing this is to use unused space. It has been sitting dorment for years and is a PRIME location for the new park.
This one's going to be a doosy!
