Dolly Parton's water park in Pigeon Forge opened to the public for the 2013 season Saturday.
Dollywood's Splash Country offers a bit of everything from a lazy river for a relaxing afternoon to high speed slides for a family-friendly getaway.
Splash Country also debuted a new water coaster for the season called River Rush. Dolly Parton herself was in town Friday to unveil the ride. Splash Country General Manager Mike Brown said, "It just really is a unique setting the ride is in. It's in a valley, and much like the ride itself, you're just not going to get that at any other water park with the way it sits in the boardwalk, down to the ride."
Dollywood's Splash Country is open on the weekends until Memorial Day weekend. After that, the park will be open seven days a week through Labor Day.
