RiverRush Opens at Dollywood's Splash Country

There's yet another reason to scream in the Smokies, this time on the new RiverRush water coaster at Dollywood's Splash Country.  The new attraction has officially opened at the park and is already generating great reviews and much press.

Dolly herself was on hand to open the ride, which stretches almost 1,200 feet long and after the lift features a 25 foot plunge.  The rest of RiverRush includes plenty of twists and turns in total darkness, as well as several more climbs and drops.  The $6 million water coaster utilizes hydromagnetics to keep the rafts moving up the hills.

Splash Country will also introduce Time Saver, which allows guests to reserve a time for some of the water park's biggest riders, for an extra fee.

Does RiverRush sound like something you'd like to try out?  If you can't wait to see what it is like in person, check out this point of view video that the park released!
