The SCS structure that is featured in Salamander Springs is a customized attraction called, “Lunker’s Landing” This attraction is completely interactive and features twelve climbable platforms of fun.

“We were excited to be working with SCS Interactive again, ” says Joe Eck, director of sales and marketing for Wilderness Resort. “Lunker’s Landing, with its impressive water bucket dump, is a true crowd pleaser and helps ensure that this resort is an entertainment destination in and of itself with non-stop fun for the entire family.”

Aside from the memorable and soaking tipping bucket the structure also includes nearly 50 interactives such as hydro-blasters and water curtains. It also includes three slides giving everyone in the family something to enjoy.

“SCS has installed multiple customized waterplay attractions at the Wilderness Resort in the Dells and we are happy to continue this on-going relationship by having another SCS structure centrally featured at Wilderness at the Smokies new waterpark. It is a pleasure working with Wilderness Resorts and we are looking forward to working with them on Phase II of this project, ” stated Bryan Merritt, president of SCS Interactive.
