The kids had a blast, there was stuff for young (4 years) to teenagers and adults to enjoy. Wish we had known how little the amusement park area was in relation to the water slide park, it is definitely a water park with a few amusement rides. If we had known we would have kept the kids in their swim... More

I take my child here once every summer. It is definitely a full days worth of fun. If you are staying overnight in the area and have young children, here's a tip: If you go after 3 p.m. , you can reuse your ticket the next day - so we would go in after 3 p.m. and do the "dry"... More

Park was great for our 4 year old twins. They had plenty to do and see. In fact, we only planned a half day for the park and wished we had gotten there earlier to do a few more things. Did not venture to the front of the park where the bigger rides were since we had the kids with... More

I have been contemplating Dollywood for next summer. However, no need with Water Safari. After reading DW reviews, we will continue to go to Old Forge. Hotel is a bit pricey and indoor pool is tiny but we have a lot of laughs. Great little breakfast in morning. The deer LITERALLY lick your hands. The price is right. We bring... More

We really enjoyed the park. My only problem was that people were smoking everywhere even though it is a non smoking park. We were picnicking under a pavilion and there were people smoking all around us. I feel like maybe there should be more signs that let people know smoking isn't allowed. My daughter has asthma so it was very... More

We have members of our management team throughout the park all day long & they... More

Our family had a wonderful time. Amusement park is kept very clean, there were a lot of families but the lines weren't long because there was so much to do. The gift shop was extremely reasonable and we picked up quite a few things.

First I remember going when I was a kid and to bring my own there is just as fun. They both enjoy the wet and dry rides. They especially enjoyed Walter's Wild Slide, and Nikki (?) operating it 8/16/14 in the late afternoon made it especially fun for them.

Family had a great time. It was a chilly day so I was not packed and short lines. One staff member named Nikki was running Walters water slide, and she made it so fun for the kids!! My only complaint is that guests were smoking in non smoking areas. Staff members did not say anything to them either. Please address... More
