Going early (around 9) might allow you to get in without paying! But no lifeguards are there so be careful. Its cold but you'll live through it. Stay toward the middle and you'll miss the bumps. Take off all jewelry. Saw one fellow who lost...More

We couldn’t leave the area without trying Sliding Rock. Unfortunately the sliding part was closed due to the water volume being too much for public safety. You can, however, visit the falls after the attendants leave and slide at your own risk without having life...More

Hiden within the smokey mountains is the sliding rock, an interesting huge rock in the middle of the river that has been polished throughout the years.

The line moved pretty fast and I had so much fun sliding! My husband waited with my son on the deck so they could watch me go down. Fun experience, but it was the coldest water I've ever been in!!

Yes, anyone can use the life vest. Just for $5. While I was there, I saw few adults not using it and leaving the place in panic. The place where you fall is uneven and most places is shallow but I would say use a vest if you... More
