Sneak previews are available on June 25 and 26 for season pass holders and guests who buy tickets from Wilderness at the Smokies.

Season passes for 2020 and 2021 will go on sale on June 26.

The waterpark will have restricted capacity due to COVID-19 precautions, so guests are encouraged to purchase tickets ahead of their visits online.

Children ages 3 and up will require tickets, but guests of Wilderness at the Smokies will receive a $20 discount on admission.

A release from the waterpark says Soaky Mountain will remain open through Labor Day, with select days of operation in September .

The Wilderness Resorts and Waterparks ownership group announced construction of the attraction last July. The park will feature a 35,000 square foot wave pool, an adventure pool with a water obstacle course and four large slide complexes among other attractions.
