Dollywood to expand water park

Posted | Contributed by supermandl

Dollywood's Splash Country plant to build Bear Mountain Fire Tower, a new $2 million interactive, multi-level water-filled attraction scheduled to open in 2005. Themed in the spirit of the many fire towers that dot the East Tennessee landscape, Bear Mountain Fire Tower will be located adjacent to Big Bear Plunge which opened in July. Each level of Bear Mountain Fire Tower will feature various water-based activities including a 1,000-gallon bucket situated atop the highest level. After warning bells sound indicating that a fire has been spotted, the large bucket spills, setting off a chain reaction of subsequent, smaller buckets throughout the lower levels creating a four-alarm soaking for the entire family.
