SoundWaves outdoors opens


T


he Gaylord Opryland, Nashville, Tennessee, opened the outdoor portion of its ‘SoundWaves’ water experience to hotel guests on 17 May as part of a grand opening celebration. SoundWaves is an indoor/outdoor water experience


designed and built by Aquatic Development Group (ADG) as part of their $90 million (€81 million) expansion project. The indoor portion opened in January of this year. The new 106,000 square foot (9,848 sq m) outdoor experience carries through the upscale design of the indoor park with high-end cabanas that line a 315,000 gallon (1,192,405 liters) wave pool that spans over 23,000 square feet (2,137 sq m) and features a giant poolside LED movie screen. A 45 foot (14 m) slide tower featuring a four-track mat racer and two drop slides, a 900 square foot (84 sq m) adult-only pool, and a kids pool with custom multi-level play structure cap off the water attractions and include a sun lounge shelf and bench seating to accommodate parents who want to relax and enjoy the ‘experience’ as much as the children. The indoor portion of SoundWaves features an additional 111,000 square feet (10,312 sq m) of indoor fun and upscale amenities including more slides, a Flowrider


surf attraction, two fast-paced rivers, and an adult-only pool and bar area on a separate mezzanine level. The Gaylord Opryland expansion was designed by Blur Workshop of Atlanta,


Georgia to represent a leap forward in architectural design for resort waterparks with innovative structure and design elements not seen before in the industry. 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 their fifth project together, having worked together on previous Gaylord Resorts and other resort water park developments, in a relationship that has spanned more than six years. “ADG brings over half a century of experience and knowledge to our team,” noted James Chamblin, vice president of design and construction at Ryman. “They have helped lead the way in creating superior settings in all aspects of aquatic resort recreation, tailoring project plans to fit their client’s vision and budget. Their Indepth approach and “get it done” culture ensures that every step of the process is carried out in the best interest of the clients overall business.
