Make a Splash in Sevierville: The Top Water Activities in Sevierville

If you’re visiting the Smoky Mountains, you won’t actually have to wait for the mercury to start rising in your thermometer. Being in (or at least on) water any time of year gives you a chance to shake off the oppressive temperatures and jump into some fun. If you’re in the Sevierville area, it’s time to check out the following water activities.

Pink and Yellow Water Slide at Wilderness at the Smokies

Wilderness at the Smokies is an indoor waterpark that’s open year-round, but it offers more than just summer activities in February. Take a ride 55-feet down through a dark tunnel on the Storm Chaser Thrill Ride in the summer or go ice skating in the winter. If zero-gravity free-falls and sharp blades aren’t your thing, there are rolling waves, bodysurfing simulators, indoor tube slides, and a hot spa.

This resort is perfect for both kids and adults because it was built with all ages in mind. The youngsters can get all their energy out in the water while the adults can relax in 1,000 square foot hot tub. No matter how bad the weather gets, the inside invites everyone to remember that springtime is around the corner. Plus, the see-through roof lets the rays in so you can tan in the middle of January.

If you’re looking for something a little unusual, the Outdoor Gravity Park combines 10 gallons of water with up to three people, and the result is a mess of pure joy. Originally hailing from New Zealand and dubbed zorbing, it’s an experience unlike any other. With zorbing, you fall head-first into an inflatable ball large enough to fit you (and up to two friends) into. The 11-foot circle careens down a 1,000-foot hill and all you have to do is feel the adrenaline.

There are three tracks to choose from Sevierville, including a Fast Track that will have you screaming from start to finish.

Sevierville City Park has a number of amenities for families of every variety, including basketball courts, picnic shelters, and walking trails. Of course, these are all in addition to the indoor and outdoor pools. Spend a few hours on the playground or squeeze in a match on the tennis courts before cooling off under the surface.

The aquatics at this park don’t end there though. You can take an aerobics class, sign your kids up for swim lessons, or even plan a pool party. Adventurous water parks can be exciting, but a city park is a practical way to relax and enjoy the calming effects of the water without feeling the pressure.

This attraction has it all, including delicious snacks and shakes to refuel everyone when they come off the slides. From watercoasters to inflatable obstacle courses, everyone in the family will love the water experiences at this waterpark. They still have the chance to breathe in the beauty while still being able to enjoy the variety of water park slides and falls.

The Sevierville area knows that not every tourist has the same plans in the Smoky Mountains. Some people want to get down and dirty in the river, while others will want something a little more peaceful than that. Whether you end up at a water park or the city pool though, we can’t recommend incorporating a water activity somewhere along the way. No matter which activity you choose, it’s an unforgettable way to feel a sense of freedom and hope as you experience the weightlessness of the water.
