With summer fast approaching and a limit on far you want to travel and when, it's time to start planning fun weekend getaways. You can save some dough on short breaks, and vary the fun to suit each family member.
Start by taking the whole family to get soaked at Wilderness at the Smokies in Tennessee. The state's largest indoor and outdoor water park is offering special anniversary rates from now until the end of 2011. As part of the celebration, guests can snag two nights of accommodations plus resort activities for as low as $279, as long as you reserve 2011 dates by April 29, 2011.
Additionally, receive over $30 of additional savings that include: (1) free $20 arcade card, (2) free rounds of adventure mini golf (adult or child), a 15% discount card on retail purchases (excludes Polka-Dot-Pots), Kids Eat free offer (as kids under 11 always do when dining with an adult) and attraction tickets.
Additional savings are only valid when Promo Code: ANNIVERSARY is mentioned over the phone or typed into the Promo Code field online. Valid on new reservations only while supply lasts; blackout dates may apply.
For its anniversary, the resort is also offering special rates on selected room styles at the Stone Hill Lodge and River Lodge hotels, where rooms start at $139/N. Depending on the room, guests here can save up to $150 per night.
Last year, the resort announced the addition of Runaway Canyon, a five-story-high enclosed waterslide measuring more than 450-feet and featuring a total drop of almost 60-feet. Using more than 8,000 gallons of water per minute, Runaway Canyon propels up to four people in rafts through a series of exciting, totally enclosed twists, turns and drops.
