Named in humorous tribute to the nearby Smoky Mountains on the Tennesse/North Carolina border, this property is said to be the largest new waterpark in the country in 2020, measuring 2.18 million square feet.

The scale of its features is fitting: The wave pool measures 35,000 square feet and produces crests up to 6 feet high, while an adventure river featuring wave action and fast-moving water occupies approximately 24,000 square feet. A double surf simulator and double-laned inflatable obstacle course pool provide yet more adventurous options.

The property includes areas for small children who aspire to become daring adults, with miniature versions of the “big kid” slides. Boomer’s Bay features a mini tornado, child-sized wall ride and twisting slides with translucent light effects, while Mini Mayhem is styled after the grown-up sized Blue Mountain Mayhem. A multi-level play structure with water bucket and water slides engages smaller children.

A flat-water cabana pool accommodates those looking for a more low-key, relaxing experience.

Designers referred to the aesthetics of this waterpark as “mountain modern,” a combination of a natural elements with modern flare, as a tribute to both the renowned mountain range and the advanced technologies utilized.

This attraction is projected to attract 100,000 new visitors to the area, with an annual attendance of 400,000.
