PIGEON FORGE (WATE) – Dollywood announced Tuesday it is adding a new water slide called the “TailSpin Racer” to Dollywood’s Splash Country next year, which will allow up to six people to race each other through the twists and turns of the ride’s spiraling tube design.
The ride starts with riders descending into intertwined high-speed “AquaTubes.” After navigating the wet and wild tubes, they then emerge from the tubes onto a traditional mat racer-style slide. It’s then a race toward the splashdown finish.
The slides are longer than a football field in length and stand five stories above the park. The ride, which will cost $2 million, will be located along Big River Pavilion near the park entrance.
“TailSpin Racer is an exciting addition to the park that we know our guests are going to love,” explained Dollywood’s Splash Country General Manager Mike Brown. “We always seek to add slides and attractions which will leave our guests with big smiles and memories to share. I think we’ll see a lot of fun as families and friends challenge each other to races down this great new slide.”
