RiverRush is Tennessee's first and only water coaster, and you can ride this next generation of water coasters at Dollywood's Splash Country, a 35-acre waterpark located adjacent to the Dollywood theme park. RiverRush races through the trees four stories in the air as you experience four drops along a track with multiple hairpin turns and dark tunnels--all combined with powerful rushing water. It's everything you love about a traditional land coaster--powerful climbs, twists, turns--with more than a splash of water. The HydroMAGNETIC water coaster's highest drop is 25 feet at 45 degrees, and the track length is 1,175 feet. The track covers more than an acre in a newly developed area near the park’s Big Bear Plunge whitewater rafting-inspired slide. Dollywood is conveniently located 35 miles southeast of Knoxville, Tennessee, in scenic Pigeon Forge at the gateway of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Make yourself right at home, even before you arrive! Right at your fingertips, you can find all your favorite family fun spots and map out your family's vacation time in advance!
