With the excitement of what is shaping up to be a record season in 2016, The Dollywood Company has announced the addition of TailSpin Racer to Dollywood’s Splash Country for 2017.

The Tennessee waterpark’s latest attraction will allow up to six guests to race each other on mats through the twists and turns of TailSpin Racer’s unique spiralling tube design.

The race begins with riders descending a daring first drop inside intertwined, high-speed AquaTubes. After navigating the wet and wild curves, riders emerge from the translucent tubes on a traditional mat racer-style slide to an all-out race toward the splashdown finish.

The $2m attraction will be located next to the Big River Pavilion near Splash Country’s entrance, the company said.

“TailSpin Racer is an exciting addition to the park that we know our guests are going to love,” said Dollywood’s Splash Country general manager, Mike Brown.

“We always seek to add slides and attractions which will leave our guests with big smiles and memories to share. I think we’ll see a lot of fun as families and friends challenge each other to races down this great new slide.”
