Splash Country Announces New Water Slide for 2017

Dollywood recently opened the world’s fastest wooden coaster, Lightning Rod, at their theme park, but they aren’t stopping there! They are adding a brand new, $2 million waterslide to their Splash Country waterpark in 2017! The new slide will be called TailSpin Racer and will be 5 stories tall and longer than a football field. It will feature 6 slides where people can race to the bottom…starting with high-speed enclosed AquaTubes and then ending with a heart-pumping drop and splash at the end.
