RiverRush, Dollywood's Splash Country
Location: Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
Adjacent to Dolly Parton's megapark lies Splash Country—and its newest attraction, RiverRush. This "water coaster" is engineered to refresh families overheated by the Smoky Mountains sun but bored stiff by conventional waterslides. Riders in four-person "toboggans" four stories above the ground race around hairpin turns and through pitch-black tunnels, getting thoroughly soaked along the way.
