Here are 4 fun Smoky Mountain attractions that you should visit to cool off after a summer tournament:
1. Dollywood’s Splash Country
Dollywood’s Splash Country is an action packed water park that has something for everyone, including a massive wave pool, speed slides, a lazy river and much more! Whether you want to float around for hours on the Downbound Float Trip or challenge the 70 foot drop on Fire Tower Falls, the choice is up to you!

If you get hungry during your water park adventures, there are several convenient restaurants in the park to satisfy your appetite!
2. Ice Bumper Cars at Ober Gatlinburg
Chill out this summer with the Ice Bumper Cars, which are situated within the indoor ice skating rink at Ober Gatlinburg! These round colorful tubes have wheels and their own motor which makes it easy to glide around the ice, so have a blast smashing into your family and friends! The controls on the Ice Bumper Cars are similar to a video game, so you can also just zoom around on the ice or spin around in circles until you are completely dizzy!
3. Pigeon Forge Snow
Another one of the fun Smoky Mountain attractions that you should visit after a summer tournament at Rocky Top Sports World is Pigeon Forge Snow, which is America’s first indoor snow park! Once stepping inside this amazing facility, you’ll find a whole hillside of snow tubing lanes, as well as a Snow Play area where you can make forts, snowmen and more! While you’ll definitely cool off inside Pigeon Forge Snow, you never have to worry about being too cold because it’s always between 60 and 70 degrees inside! There is no need to make a reservation, so just show up whenever you are ready to hit the slopes after your big game at Rocky Top Sports World!
4. Water Raft Rides at Ober Gatlinburg
While we’re on the topic of Ober Gatlinburg, stick around after you check out the Ice Bumper Cars to splash down on one of the thrilling Water Raft Rides! The Shoot the Chute features a steep drop with a splash pool at the bottom, while the Lightnin’ Water Ride is an open-air slide with several dips that will have you screaming in delight! The best part is that you can come as you are, as bathing suits are not required since the rafts provide protection from getting completely soaked!
