Our experience was fantastic - room was ready upon check in at 4pm, staff was VERY friendly and everything was in working order.
We had a 2 bedroom suite for 2 adults and 2 kids - it was VERY spacious for the 4 of us and was a great break from the action.
This place is like vegas for kids...Few things we learned that may be helpful.
-> The Wyndham timeshare shares the waterpark/property with a regular hotel (like a Great Wolf Lodge-type, but different name). Not a bad thing, just interesting to see the property is shared.
-> Ask for an upper floor (third or above). The indoor walkway to the arcade and waterpark spans at the second floor so there appears to be a ton of foot traffic in those hallways
-> Walk can be long between rooms and the waterpark/arcade - be prepared with comfortable flip flops or other walking shoes.
-> Food - we ate in the room and off campus - we did not eat onsite other an a sandwich the first day. We were surprised at how expensive the food was on site, but off site grocery store was cheap compared to where we live. 4 of us ate (Two kids/adults) ate 1 meal a day off campus and we stayed way within budget
-> Get to the waterpark before 1030am. It fills up quickly.
-> You may want to wear sunscreen in the water park - you can get sunburned inside - it's a cool concept, just be careful - we saw some very red people by the end of the day...
-> Ask about happy hour at the bar - they don't advertise it, but there were some good 2 for 1 specials that we learned about the last day
-> Sevierville is a dry county - there are places to get drinks, but not a liquor store - come prepared if you enjoy adult beverages
Overall, great vacation spot - lots to do both on and off the resort. Extremely clean and nice. Best of all, the staff was extremely and helpful. A+ in our book and we would return!
