The Gaylord Opryland expansion was designed by Blur Workshop of Atlanta, GA and represents a leap forward in architectural design for resort waterparks with innovative structure and design elements not seen before in the industry, the highlight of which is an ultra- contemporary indoor resort water park with luxury design elements that highlights the Gaylord brand.

To achieve this vision, Ryman and DF Chase, the construction manager, turned to their long-time partner Aquatic Development Group to bring the design of their water park to life. This is the fifth project for the threesome, having worked together on previous Gaylord Resorts and other water park developments, in a relationship that has spanned more than six years.

“SoundWaves is the fifth project we have worked on with ADG,” said James Chamblin, VP of Design and Construction for Ryman Hospitality Properties, “They are one of those partners we return to time and time again for our resort projects because of their innovative products, high service levels and unique approach to the design process. ”

SoundWaves will be available exclusively to hotel guests and will cover over 217,000 sqft; 111,000 sqft of indoor space spanned over three levels, and 106,000 sqft of outdoor area. Construction on the indoor and outdoor water parks is anticipated to last approximately 20 months and is slated to open Fall 2018.
