In a tourist mecca like the Great Smoky Mountains, it's hard to make a splash with new entertainment, but Dolly Parton's attractions continue to draw more new and repeat visitors than just about any other venue in the region because of Parton's commitment to adding new elements each year to her wildly successful empire. Splash Country, complete with 27 water adventure slides and thrill rides (some with height or age restrictions), is no exception. Cutting-edge technology
allows you to plan your itinerary online, reserve a place in line at the most popular rides, and wear a "smart" bracelet instead of carrying cash to pay for purchases. Book lodging at one of the Dollywood cabins and you get a "Length of Stay Pass" for the price of one-day admission.
