SoundWaves at Gaylord Opryland

Compose your perfect Music City getaway at SoundWaves at Gaylord Opryland & Convention Center, the nation's first upscale indoor and outdoor resort water attraction.

SoundWaves blends 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 4 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 9 acres of garden atriums.

Much like the temperature-controlled indoor gardens at the resort, SoundWaves will be kept at 84 degrees all year-round. In addition, its unique roof will allow you to get that sun-kissed glow indoors, even during the winter.

Overnight Packages

Book the SoundWaves overnight package to enjoy guaranteed admission to the water attraction, the best way to indulge in Music City.
