Soaky Mountain and Wilderness Waterparks are partners in this Waterpark Paradise in Sevierville, at 175 Gists Creek Road, and both are right next to Sevierville Convention Center. You can't miss them.

Soaky Mountain led with new expansions like "The Edge" - a dueling water coaster, where you can race your competitors through Aqualucent tunnels and exhilarating drops!

You will boomerang up a slide wall and back down and then experience Zero gravity jumps as you both end the race and will find out who the winner is with a lighted celebration at the end.

They also added more food, more seating, and more cabanas by popular demand.
