The nation’s first upscale indoor/outdoor water attraction is coming soon to Nashville.
This December, guests of Nashville’s Gaylord Opryland Resort will have the option to transform the way they unwind during winter weather with the opening of SoundWaves — a first-of-its-kind water and music experience.
Featuring four acres of attractions and amenities, SoundWaves’ indoor venue will be the first to debut in December, guaranteeing winter water adventures, no matter the temperature outdoors.
Fusing water and music with amenities and activities — from thrilling rides to relaxing decks and an adult-only pool — guests of SoundWaves can expect an experience unique to Nashville. Taking center-stage in historic Music City, SoundWaves enhances each experience with paired musical components from country to pop — featuring attractions that play music and a giant screen with music programming at the outdoor wave pool.
A modern design, sleek finishes and rides intertwined with living walls and plant beds create an alluring ambiance. Much like the temperature controlled indoor gardens at the resort, SoundWaves will maintain an 84-degree tropical temperature. A uniquely-designed roof permits natural light, giving guests the opportunity to sunbathe indoors year-round.
Access to SoundWaves is exclusive to those who select the overnight SoundWaves Experience Package, which is on sale now and includes accommodations at Gaylord Opryland Resort and a wristband for daily admission to SoundWaves.
“There is truly nothing like this experience in the U.S., and we are proud to give families, groups and couples another reason to enjoy our beautiful city,” said John Adams, VP and market general manager for Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center & Attractions. “This is the nation’s first truly upscale indoor/outdoor resort water experience, and we believe our guests will be delighted by the attention to detail, modern design and exclusivity SoundWaves offers.”
“We are thrilled to announce that the SoundWaves experience can now be purchased for December and beyond,” said Adams. “With complimentary transportation to and from downtown, SoundWaves guests can experience the excitement of Nashville’s Honky Tonks and return to SoundWaves to enjoy an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown scene.”
With outdoor seasonal features set to open summer 2019, 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 local offerings and signature cocktails, along with kid-friendly fare, ensure each palate is satisfied. Private cabana rentals are also available and a carefully selected capacity level provides an exclusive and comfortable experience for all guests.
