Between Nashville, Knoxville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg, there are many hot spots you can find scattered throughout The Volunteer State. From enchanting nature escapes to thrilling theme parks, there are a number of attractions that are worth taking a trip to. If you needed another one to add to your list, a massive new waterpark in Tennessee's Sevierville will be opening this month.
Soaky Mountain Waterpark will be opening in Sevierville, on June 27. They'll be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The park made the announcement with a Facebook post on Wednesday, June 10, sharing a video with a sneak peek at photos of the new location.
The post already has 26,000 views they may be expecting an impressive turnout.
Soaky Mountain is located on 50 massive acres of land. Inside, you'll find a 35,000-square-foot wave pool that can make six-foot-tall waves, aqua obstacle courses, huge slides, and multiple pools to splash the day away in.
The park is also offering a special deal on the season pass in celebration of the grand opening, so you might want to grab your summer tickets if you see yourself as a frequent water-slider.
You can snag a season pass for just under $100 — this will give you access to the park as much as you want throughout the rest of the 2020 and 2021 season. This ticket deal is only available until Friday, June 26.
For a standard daily pass, it's $44.99 and for those under 42 inches, it's $39.99.
Running around a waterpark and feeling that adrenaline kick could work up one heck of an appetite, and you'll have plenty of options to choose from.
The official website lists two food trucks that will be parked on the property, Tacolicious and Rolly Macaroni. You'll also find a cafe, bars, and sweet goodies at their other on-site dining locations such as the Soaky Shake Shoppe and Candy Cabin.
