  1. This looks amazing! I am timid to fly so knowing that these amazing parks are in driving distance is perfect for my family. Thank you for also providing the option to win some cool prizes! TN, here we come!

  2. Great idea! I haven’t been to a water park or the Smokies since I was a teenager. A visit is long overdue. The 10th anniversary sweepstakes is a added incentive to plan a trip. I hope to do so soon.

  3. You’ve done an amazing job covering this water park…quite insightful and informative. The pictures are absolutely beautiful, makes you want to jump right into them (like when you’re a kid believing you can jump into the T.V. screen). Good job!!!

  4. I have never been to a water park but this place sounds as though it would be an electrifying first. More than 200K square feet of space to have fun!! Anyone can have an incredible time!

    Proud of you for giving your energy to write an engaging article.

  5. The water park sounds like fun. I can’t wait to take my family. They will love the 36-hole championship golf course!
