Dollywood Splash Country opens this weekend and with it will be a brand new water ride to entice roller coaster lovers. 

RiverRush opens to the public on Saturday. It's the first of its kind at Dollywood Splash Country and in Tennessee and one of only a handful in the country.

Dollywood gave 10News a sneak peak behind the scenes of the ride.

The ride uses magnets to push the four person boat through the twisting tubes.

Wes Ramey of Dollywood said, "RiverRush is completely different. You can't get anything like this anywhere nearby. It's the only one in Tennessee, it's the first one. It's just like a roller coaster mixed with water. So, you can't go wrong with that. RiverRush truly is a rush so everyone will love to come out and try this ride."

Dollywood Splash Country opens for the 2013 season on Saturday & Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Dolly Parton plans to be at Dollywood to unveil the new ride on Friday.
