Weekend at SoundWaves: Gaylord Opryland’s Upscale Water Attraction

Shop the Look

We have been going to SoundWaves since they opened, and this past week, we got to go kid-free to enjoy it for the weekend. If you haven’t been yet, SoundWaves is the nation’s first truly upscale indoor/outdoor resort water attraction located in Nashville, Tennessee. I’ve been going to Gaylord Opryland for years, and the addition of their water attraction is just another reason why this hotel is a favorite of ours.

Our kids absolutely love it! But, with 3 kids of all different ages, it can be hard to actually get to spend any of the time doing any water slides. We are typically chasing around the kids and keeping Grayson from running off, running into the pool, running downstairs…everything lol. So this was quite a different experience getting to ride water slides all day, chill in the adults-only pool (yes, you heard that right!), and relax in a cabana.

SoudWaves has SO much to offer families and kids, but don’t get me wrong, they offer so much for adults too! SoundWaves is a 111,000 square feet, 3-level water attraction that has an adult’s only pool indoors, an adults-only pool outdoors, private cabana rentals both indoors and outdoors, a lazy river indoors, a rapid river indoors, a wave pool outdoors, and tons of waterslides both inside and out!

And they also have play areas indoors and outdoors for kids. It is just as perfect for kids and families as it is for an adult’s weekend. Keep reading below for a list of all attractions at SoundWaves

After our last trip to Gaylord Opryland and SoundWaves, I’m thinking that we need 2 trips a year there now – 1 with the kids and 1 with the adults. = ) It was that much fun! We even took a day and visited Arrington Vineyards and then had dinner at The Optimist.
