SoundWaves at Gaylord Opryland

Opening December 1, 2018

Compose your perfect Music City getaway at SoundWaves at Gaylord Opryland—the nation’s first truly upscale indoor/outdoor resort water attraction.

SoundWaves fuses music and water to create an exclusive experience with something for everyone—from incredible thrill rides to relaxing indulgences.

First-of-its-kind design

Capacity at SoundWaves is intentionally capped to ensure a more relaxed and comfortable experience.

Spanning four acres, SoundWaves features 111,000 square feet of indoor attractions, dining and amenities, as well as 106,000 square feet of outdoor water attractions.

Its clean, crisp look is a modern oasis of thoughtful design, coupled with sleek finishes and furnishings.

The indoor experience is uniquely arranged vertically on three separate levels. Rides are intertwined with living walls and plant beds—a natural extension of the resort’s nine acres of garden atriums.

Much like the temperature controlled indoor gardens at the resort, SoundWaves will be kept at 84 degrees indoors year-round. In addition, its unique roof will allow guests to sunbathe indoors, even in the winter!

Overnight Packages

The only guaranteed way to enjoy this unique water attraction is by booking the SoundWaves overnight package.
