The Challenge

Aquatic Development Group (ADG) has been contracted to design and build the featured water attractions at “SoundWaves” luxury indoor-outdoor waterpark at the Gaylord Opryland Resort as part of their $90 million expansion project.  Located in Nashville, TN, and owned by Ryman Hospitality, the waterpark is on track to open to guests in Fall of 2018.

The Solution

SoundWaves was designed as a four acre, 3-level luxury indoor/outdoor waterpark with dedicated recreation zones for adults, young children and families. Year-round indoor attractions will feature 111,000 sqft of upscale water activities including a slide tower, Double FlowRider®, rapid and lazy rivers, and an activity pool with rock climbing, basketball, and obstacle course sections.  Multiple restaurants, an exclusive adults-only indoor pool, bar & lounge, and private cabana rentals for a total capacity of 747 seats will round out the offerings.

The outdoor waterpark, designed with spacious seating for 866 guests, creates a relaxed feel the entire family can enjoy.  Attraction highlights include a 315,000 gallon wave pool with giant LED movie screen, a 45′ slide tower, and kids pool with multi-level play structure.  Multiple dining options, bars, lounging areas, an exclusive adults-only pool and private cabana rentals provide the high-end resort experience that is synonymous with the Gaylord brand.
