Get more out of your summer vacation! Discover more excitement, adventure, and thrills this season and make more memories together at the nation’s first truly upscale resort water attraction, SoundWaves at Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tennessee.

This upscale, four-acre, three-level aquatic experience unites extraordinary environments, exclusive amenities, and relaxing water features with energetic rides and immersive music to create a modern oasis the entire family will enjoy. Indoor experiences are open year-round and seasonal outdoor attractions are open mid-May through the summer.

The Outdoor Attraction

No matter their speed – thrill or chill – everyone in the family will find fun at SoundWaves. The two-acre outdoor attraction features a 45-foot slide tower with adrenaline-inducing rides including:

  • Beat Drop, a near-vertical tunnel that drops into a looping waterslide
  • Bass Drop, an open-flume, a six-story, free-fall waterslide
  • Rock’N Racer, an interactive, four-lane mat slide.

In addition, guests can enjoy music videos on a giant LED movie screen while riding the waves at the Tidal Track Wave Pool. The outdoor experience also includes the Rising Stars Stage kid’s pool and multi-level play structure, the adults-only Diamond Pool and bars, private cabana rentals, food trucks, and more.
