Now is the perfect time to make your summer vacation plans with a visit to Dollywood’s Splash Country! After all, this popular waterpark is preparing to open their gates for another season of fun in the sun! If you have just one day to enjoy the park’s exciting lineup of pools, slides and other attractions, make the most of your day with our insider tips! Here are the top 5 ways to make the most of your day at Splash Country at Dollywood:

1. Get to the Park Early

This gives you plenty of time to park your car, apply sunscreen, and be one of the first guests through the turnstiles in the morning. Get a head start on some of the best slides in the park, including the Big Bear Plunge, Raging River Rapids, RiverRush, and the Slick Rock Racer. Once the lines start to build, head over to the Mountain Waves pool to tackle the waves or enjoy a relaxing journey on the Downbound Float Trip!

2. Go on a Cloudy Day

Don’t let a little cloudy weather or a few raindrops spoil your day at the waterpark! This can actually be one of the best days to visit the park as most folks tend to go when it’s sunny outside. While you might not get to work on that summer tan, you will get to take advantage of shorter lines on the exciting water attractions. If park operations are interrupted by severe weather and your stay is shortened, you can request a Rain Check from any ticket window, and the ticket is valid until the end of the season!

3. Consider the TimeSaver H20 Pass

This convenient ride reservation system is available for an extra fee and reserves your position in line for many of the park’s most popular attractions! Since you don’t actually have to stand in line, you can enjoy other park amenities and attractions until it is your time to ride! There are 3 versions of the pass available, including the Regular TimeSaverH20, Premium Timesaver H20, and the Unlimited TimeSaver H20.

4. Purchase an All Day Drink Cup

While swimming and hitting the slides, it is important to stay hydrated throughout the day! The best deal in the park for drinks is the Daily Refill Souvenir Mug, which includes free fountain drink refills on the day of redemption. Once you purchase the mug, fill it up as much as you want to satisfy your thirst all day long! As a bonus, you can keep the mug through the rest of the season and enjoy unlimited fountain refills for just a nominal fee!
