When the hot temperatures hit the Smoky Mountains, you’ll find my family keeping cool at Dollywood’s Splash Country. We all LOVE the water park because it’s the perfect place to spend the day. There’s no reason to leave – they have great food, great places to take a rest, and of course, great places to splash.
One great thing about Splash Country is the availability of food at a variety of places throughout the park. Another great perk is the food is just as good as Dollywood! Today I’m sharing with you my family’s favorite food deals when we’re visiting the water park.
Fill & Chill Mugs
Whether you’re visiting for the day or if you have a Season Pass, you’ll want to get a souvenir mug. My fellow Insider, Katie, shared a great video on how the mugs work and it’s definitely the best deal at the park.
My favorite part, other than the free refills of soda all season long, is the fact that you don’t have to wait in any lines for the refills. Just walk up to one of the five Fill & Chill Zones located throughout the park and refill with your favorite drink.
Hamburger Tray with Retreats
If you’re planning to rent a Retreat during your visit to Splash Country, you’re in for some great deals on food. Not only will you not have to wait in line to order your food, but you’ll be able to order a Family Meal Deal (Cheese Burgers and Fries Tray) for your family at a discounted price. Just pick up the phone in your Retreat and order from the Campsite Grill to have it delivered right to you!
It’s the treat you’ve been missing out on without knowing it. BeaverTails are parties made from whole wheatdough and hand-stretched just for you right after you order. They originated in Canada and Splash Country is one of only five places you can find them in the United States! I will say I’m totally partial to the Reese’s Pieces and chocolate hazelnut topping, but I’ve heard great things about the Cinnamon & Sugar version too!
When you’re hot, what’s the best way to cool down? With a frozen treat, of course! There are a few different ice cream versions to be found in Splash Country (like Berries ‘n Cream), but my family’s favorite is Dippin’ Dots! You’ll find this ice cream of the future in three locations at the park and don’t miss the fabulous Souvenir Bowl deal! New this season—Dollywood’s Splash Country Dippin’ Dots Sundaes! There are four choices, including one with rainbow ice for those who can’t have dairy.
