  • We tried the pancakes, omelet, and biscuits and gravy. All were great! Syrup was hot. Biscuits were huge and fluffy. You could tell that everything was homemade. Staff were very friendly and helpful. ...  more »

  • Best water park in town and you don't have to stay at their resort to go to the water park! Prices are very reasonable! I recommend wearing your swimsuit to the park, it's difficult to change in a bathroom stall. They offer lockers for $10. They have a locker room in both the bathrooms, including showers, but for the shy, you're pretty much going to have to use a stall. They have towels & life vests for all ages. There's a shallow area with slides & sprinklers for toddlers & the water is nice & warm! The lazy river is a blast, also warm! The pool is heated also & is 3ft to about 4-4&1/2ft & has balls & a hoop & a few little areas to sit in. There's a huge play area in the middle, a bit cooler water, with slides & bridges & water cannons, just be careful of the huge bucket of water that dumps out every few minutes at the very top! There's also a huge water slide! They're open till 9pm & there's so much to do, you'll want to spend a good 4-5 hrs here! And this review is only for the indoor part of the water park! We can't wait to go back in the summer for the outdoor part!
  • It's definitely a place for kids. Not really designed for teens or adults. The big issue I had was a guy brought his daughter in the dressing room. She was about 3 years old. I was about to be nude. But I went to a different area to finish dressing. They need a family dressing room. Don't think it's appropriate for a girl to be in the men's locker room nor a man to be nude around her. I would like to believe that the guy didn't have a choice. He may have been the only parent there.
  • Was not impressed. First of all they should have had a family locker room. People were bring their children of opposite sex in there. It is not a place for someone without small children. Hot tubs weren't hot and children were jumping in and out of them doing cannon balls.
  • We absolutely love this place & went here every single day of our Gatlinburg getaway. The staff is friendly, the pools are nice and clean, and there is something for everyone of any age to do. I also noticed handicap avaliability at every pool side. Let's be honest, it's a bit expensive (around 20 per adult for non-owners) but I enjoyed every penny and then some & will be back often. I only wish they had a deeper pool as I love to be able to dive. Besides that-perfect.
  • Nice, well maintained park. Lazy river, two slides, toddler splash area, larger splash area, basket ball goals in the water, hot tub inside and one that is partially in and out. All season access. We were in the hot tub while it was snowing. Food upstairs.
