This waterpark is also expected to add nearly 500 full and part times jobs to the region.

The news release issued Tuesday after the groundbreaking said in part, “Soaky Mountain Waterpark will feature a massive, 35,000 square foot wave pool capable of generating waves up to 6 feet high; a winding wave river spanning an area of 24,000 square feet; and a heavily-themed and exciting kids’ play-and-spray feature with multiple slides for both the tame and the daring.”

Officials have not yet determined a price for tickets, but said, “Wilderness at the Smokies guests will likely receive preferred pricing on admission. “
