Downbound Float Trip
Experience the scenic beauty of the Smoky Mountains while floating down the relaxing 1,500-foot "river." Cool off as you float beneath the cascading 200-foot waterfall that drenches and refreshes.
Note: To ensure the safety of our guests, everyone measuring less than 36” in height who enters the Downbound Float Trip lazy river must be accompanied by a chaperone 16 years or older and MUST wear a lifejacket. This includes swimmers, non-swimmers and infants. We apologize for any inconvenience; however, after reviewing recent events within the waterpark industry, this safety requirement is consistent with Dollywood’s Splash Country’s commitment to making guest safety our No. 1 priority. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we serve you!
