Nooga Splash Aqua Park Opens May 28 Under New Ownership

Saturday, May 21, 2022

Chattanooga Presents announces the purchase of Nooga Splash, the only floating water park of its kind on the Tennessee River, opening on Memorial Day weekend at Chester Frost Park beach.

"This 31-piece inflatable obstacle course is one of Chattanooga’s most exciting summertime attractions, and will provide active fun for all ages with an extended season that runs through the end of September this year," officials said. "Nooga Splash offers heart-racing fun for those who want to run, jump, climb, splash and bounce while keeping cool on the water."

The attraction will be open daily, with hours from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. on Sunday-Friday and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. on Saturdays. Sessions are offered for a Single Splash (one hour), a Half-Day Splash (four hours) or all All-Day Splash. Reserved tickets purchased online offer a small discount, or tickets can be purchased in person. 

Nooga Splash is surrounded by Chattanooga’s best beach, picnicking, a campground and hiking trails at Chester Frost Park. Free parking is also available. Snack and drink concessions as well as beach gear will be offered at the beachfront concession stand. 

"Take advantage of group discounts (minimum 15 guests) for your summer camp groups, organizations and youth groups, or consider a private rental for exclusive use outside of public open hours," officials said. "Nooga Splash is also a perfect choice for a summertime birthday party, offering a no-hassle celebration."

Gift cards, individual season passes and family season passes are also available. 

Nooga Splash is now locally managed and operated through professional event producer, Chattanooga Presents, who recently purchased it from Larry Zehnder, formerly the Parks and Recreation Administrator for the City of Chattanooga. 

According to Carla Pritchard, Chattanooga Presents owner, “We are excited to have recently taken ownership of Nooga Splash, and look forward to the 2022 summer season, when this water park should be well positioned to be a major destination for summer fun in the Chattanooga area.” As owner of Ice on the Landing ice skating rink, the Nightfall Concert Series, Adelle’s Creperie and The Granfalloon, as well as the producer of Pops on the River and the 3 Sisters Festival, Chattanooga Presents is well positioned to add Nooga Splash into their wheelhouse of family activity and seasonal entertainment."

Nooga Splash said they are proud to have j103 Radio as their media sponsor. Visit noogasplash.com for details and ticket information.

22 Questions And Concerns About A New $79.5 Million Lookouts Stadium

The proposal for the Lookouts stadium brings forth several questions that I have not gotten good answers yet from anyone. 1. If the 10 acres Gary Chazen is donating is worth $10,000,000, why doesn’t he and his partners just sell the 140 acres and go to the bank with over $100,000,000? 2.

I can't find any logical reasons that the new Lookout stadium is being placed where it is other than to think it's a combination of favoritism and eliminating an eyesore.
