Wilderness at the Smokies officials announced on Thursday that their resort will be reopening on Thursday, May 28.
“We recognize that the last eight weeks have been challenging for everyone, especially families with small children, and we want to provide a fun and safe place for them to escape to when they are ready,” said Joe Eck, COO of Wilderness Resorts and Waterparks.
The resort has been working with state and county guidelines to create a Safer at Play Program that outlines in detail all of the safety precautions in place at the resort. For more information on this program visit https://bit.ly/3e2YWGd.
Another safety precaution that the resort is implementing is that no day passes will be sold at this time in order to keep waterpark occupancy manageable. Only guests of the resort will be able to use the waterparks.
