Please refer to the park map for our many locker locations throughout the park.
To ensure guest safety, children can participate in attractions when they meet the minimum height requirement established by the attraction’s manufacturer. To determine which slides and attractions are suitable for your child, please visit Dollywood’s Splash Country’s Centralized Measuring station located next to the first bridge upon entering the park (the building shared with Splash Photos).
Your child will be measured by a Splash Country host and given a color-coded wristband to help you identify which attractions he or she is tall enough to enjoy. The wristband’s color corresponds with the information displayed on signs at each attraction. Taking advantage of Splash Country’s Centralized Measuring service early in the day can help you and your family avoid the disappointment and frustration of waiting in line only to discover your little ones aren’t tall enough to ride. Children can ride if they meet both the minimum height requirement and additional rider requirements as established by the ride’s manufacturer to ensure guest safety.
For the safety of our guests, children must be 13 years old or older to enter without an adult. Children 12 years old and younger must be accompanied by a supervising companion 16 years old or older. Unescorted children will not be admitted to Dollywood's Splash Country. If a child is excessively separated from their party, there may be consequences for the supervising companion. If parties are separated, please contact a Dollywood's Splash Country host with a radio or a Dollywood's Splash Country Security Officer.
Life vests are provided at no additional charge and will be required for non-swimmers and small children at the direction of the Lifeguards. Personal life vests must be USCG approved and in good condition. Water wings, flotation seats or bubble packs may not be used. Life vests are strongly recommended for weak swimmers.

Dollywood’s Splash Country reserves the right to require additional or different attire where we deem appropriate. Should a guest refuse to comply with our request, the guest will be politely asked to leave the property.

Space is limited, and reservations are highly recommended.

We've told you before how much fun Dollywood can be in the rain, but I'd hate to miss the opportunity to tell you why you should stick around our water park after a storm rolls in. The same logic applies-if it's just rain and not lightning, the attractions will still be open. The lines will be shorter because most people don't realize how much fun playing in the rain actually is. If there is lightning in the area, you'll have to get out of the water, but you don't have to leave. Most of our lifeguards are big kids themselves-they lo…

To visit a water park or not? Sometimes your concerns have nothing to do with swimming ability, but rather water quality. As a mom of small children, I understand how important this topic is and I want to give you confidence when you bring your family to Dollywood's Splash Country. Tennessee and local health codes require water facilities in the state to maintain healthy pH and chlorine levels as well as ensure all equipment is in good working condition-subject to inspection. Splash Country sees that bar and jumps way over it. Here's what I learned when I sat down to ask our water park's Facilities and Maintenance M…

If you’re anything like me, then you probably try to avoid undertaking big things without a few sets of extra hand and visiting a water park isn’t anywhere near the top of your to-do list. Well, I’m here to tell you, don’t be like me.
