NEWPORT-Members of the Newport/Cocke County Chamber of Commerce had an enjoyable morning Tuesday when they gathered at the Newport/Cocke County Community Center for their quarterly breakfast. Not only did they enjoy a catered biscuits and gravy and all the trimmings meal, but they also learned about the new water coaster, RiverRush, set to open in May at Dollywood's Splash Country.

Teresa Karson, Dollywood Area Relations Director, greeted the members and showed a PowerPoint program about the new entertainment.

Karson told the group RiverRush is a hydromagnetic coaster, that "combines all of the powerful climbs, plunging drops, thrilling twists, and tight turns of a traditional land coaster with the waterpark's calling card-water-for the very latest in waterpark experiences."
