Country Cascades Waterpark Resort Announces $30 Million Expansion

Country Cascades Waterpark Resort expansion adds 91-room River Tower, dining options, and a family entertainment center amid a modern-mountain design. Guests will soon enjoy 91 new guest rooms, a grand lobby, more eats and treats, as well as a diverse offering of activities and entertainment. The new seven-story River Tower features 91 modern mountain-themed rooms, each designed for families and to accommodate up to six guests.
Nature comes to life as the heart of the Smoky Mountains is celebrated throughout the various features of the River Tower guest rooms. Light and airy touches will carry the mountain breeze inside each room, immersing guests in a mountain setting. Meanwhile, room accommodations will surround guests in modern, creature comforts. Adults will enjoy the rustic-yet-refined space, but River Tower rooms are really all about the kids. Each room has a dedicated “kids space,”designed for more than just sleeping, thanks to the in-room scavenger hunt. Young adventurers can follow clues to crack a secret code that opens an in-room treasure chest.
