Canopies at Splash Country

Has anyone rented one of the canopies ($25) or retreats ($150) at Dollywood's Splash Country? We have never been to Splash Country, but are planning an early August week in the smokies.

I would appreciate any advice on 1. which area of the park to request my canopy, 2. is it really necessary, or is shade available without the canopy and 3. would a retreat really be worth the $$$.

If our entire group goes on the same day we would have 6 adults, 4 older teens,10 yr old and a 7 yr old. I would like to spring for the retreat, but I haven't convinced my hubby its a good idea.

My wife and I are not big fans of the heat. And since we took our daughter, her husband, and two grandchildren in the month of June, we rented a retreat.

It was worth it for us. I can't remember exactly where the retreat was located, but it was toward the far end from the entrance of the park. The retreat provided a place for us simply to relax and read. It's screened in for privacy, and there's a T.V. if your'e interested. It's a good place to keep things since there is a storage lock up, and you can order lunch over the phone that's in there, and have it brought to the retreat.

Personally, there's no way I do splashworld without one, simply because I'm not into playing around in water features and rides.

We have been to Splash Country a few times. We have never rented a canopy or retreat, but we have seen them. The canopies are really tiny. They hold 2 lawn chairs only. So with a large family..you would definately want the retreat. They look really nice. IF you have the money to spend & want a shady spot for the family to relax, it is probably a good idea. There really are NO shady spots in the park!

Hope this helps!
