“This $30 Million Dollar project brings together all of the elements of a memory filled vacation whether it is the thrill of rock climbing, excitement of a pajama dance party, or the delight of sharing ice cream together,” said Kay Collier-Pittman, president of Country Cascades Waterpark Resort.


The guest rooms will have features of the River Tower, located in the Smoky Mountains. The light and airy touches will carry a mountain breeze inside each room, immersing guests in a mountain setting.

Each room has a “kid’s space,” designed to include an in-room scavenger hunt. The kids can follow clues to crack a secret code that opens an in-room treasure chest.
