SoundWaves, Nashville's Newest Water Attraction, Opens With A Splash

SoundWaves, the nation’s first truly upscale indoor/outdoor water resort, celebrated its indoor grand opening with a splash. John Adams, VP and General Manager of Gaylord Opryland Resort, connected the water resort’s unique features to its Music City roots: “In true Nashville style, SoundWaves fuses water with music to create an exclusive experience with something for everyone.”

The indoor venue, which officially debuted to hotel guests on December 1, includes three separate levels of music-themed water rides, activities, restaurants, lounging areas, party rooms and private cabana rentals. A modern design, sleek finishes and thrilling rides intertwined with living walls and plant beds create an alluring ambiance unique to Music City. Much like Gaylord Opryland’s temperature controlled indoor gardens, SoundWaves maintains an 84-degree tropical temperature year-round. In addition, a uniquely designed roof permits natural light, giving guests the opportunity to catch some Vitamin D inside SoundWaves.

With outdoor seasonal features set to open for the Summer 2019 season, SoundWaves offers both indoor and outdoor recreation zones for adults, young children and families. Adult guests will have exclusive access to adult-only indoor and outdoor pools, bars and lounging areas throughout the water resort. Elevated dining experiences with vacation-inspired food and signature cocktails (and mocktails for the younger crowd), along with kid friendly fare, ensure each palate is satisfied. By limiting capacity through the SoundWaves Experience Package, the resort is an upscale experience for guests — no bumping elbows or long lines.
