Sevierville, Tenn. – As summer approaches and temperatures begin to rise, guests at the Wilderness at the Smokies Resort in Sevierville can now navigate the rapids, ride the waves or simply relax in a private poolside cabana – all features of Wilderness at the Smokies’ newest waterpark attraction. Lake Wilderness, the newest phase of the full-service waterpark resort, is now open to those staying at the resort.
Wilderness guests can grab a tube and jump in the Lake Wilderness 12,000-square-foot Wave Pool – where waves within the pool can crest as high as five feet. Also winding around the outdoor waterpark is Cataloochee Creek, a nearly 1,000 foot rapid-moving river with water spray features located along its path.
“We have been extremely pleased with the acceptance and success we have received with the recent opening of the Wild Waterdome Indoor Waterpark, and are excited to further enhance our guests’ experience with the opening of Lake Wilderness,” says David McGregor, general manager of Wilderness at the Smokies “With another exciting attraction now in place, we feel as though we have one of the premier indoor/outdoor waterpark resorts in the country.”
The ten private poolside cabanas situated around Lake Wilderness are available for guests to rent, with each cabana featuring shelter from the sun, cabana-style lounge chairs, a flat panel television and a personal cabana host. An outdoor bar and grill is also located within the outdoor waterpark to help satisfy those afternoon cravings.
With the opening of the Lake Wilderness Outdoor Waterpark, the Wilderness at the Smokies Resort boasts two outdoor waterparks and the 60,000 sq. ft. Wild WaterDome Indoor Waterpark, making it the largest resort of its kind in the southeast.
Wilderness at the Smokies, located minutes from Interstate 40 and situated in the scenic foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, is establishing a new standard for family vacations to East Tennessee. Phase I of the resort opened in June 2008 with a 234-room hotel and outdoor waterpark. The Wild WaterDome Indoor Waterpark opened in December 2008 and the resort has just unveiled its Lake Wilderness Outdoor Waterpark which features an Adventure River and a 12,000 square foot Wave Pool.
The developers of Wilderness at the Smokies Resort are the owners of Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort – America’s Largest Waterpark Resort in Wisconsin Dells. For more information on the resort or for reservations, visit www.wildernessatthesmokies.com or call 1-800-867-WILD (9453).
