Since SoundWaves Nashville opened in 2019, Nashville locals have been hoping for day passes. Finally, Tennessee residents can purchase a SoundWaves Opryland day pass for a limited time!
SoundWaves Day Pass
That’s right – at long last we can now get a SoundWaves Day Pass. Now don’t get me wrong, I would take an overnight staycation at Opryland any day.
But Opryland has heard from locals loud and clear: we want to visit Opryland for the day. And now you can.
For a limited time starting July 27, 2020, Tennessee residents can get a SoundWaves Opryland day pass for just $49.99 per person. To my knowledge, this does not include tax and you can also purchase a $10 self-parking pass.
Visit SoundWaves for the Day: Date & Times Available
SoundWaves day passes are available during the following days and times:
- Monday – Thursday
- Noon – 8pm
As always, check with GaylordOprylandLocal.com to verify operating hours. Advance reservations are necessary to take advantage of this offer.

SoundWaves Day Pass Pricing
I’ve heard from both ends of the spectrum when the $49.99 day pass price was announced.
Some people feel the almost $50 price is high. But can I remind you that this is Nashville’s only indoor/outdoor upscale resort water attraction? (Read my full SoundWaves review). Not only that, but let’s compare SoundWaves to some of its competitors:
- Nashville Shores: $32.99 + tax for an adult + $9.15 for parking when purchased in advance online
- Dollywood’s Splash Country: $49.95 + tax for an adult + parking (this price currently includes a free meal)
Splash Country is also offering a Sunday-Thursday special this summer for $29.95 + tax
- Soaky Mountain Waterpark: This new waterpark just opened in East TN across from Wilderness at the Smokies. Adult day passes are $44.99 + tax & parking. They are currently offering a $39.99 + tax ticket for Sundays when you purchase online.
When you consider the cost of driving three hours (from Nashville) to East Tennessee to pay basically the same price for their waterparks, you can see the value. Plus, I learned early on that it is really tough to do a day trip (back and forth in one day) to the Pigeon Forge/Sevierville area without feeling completely exhausted afterwards.
Don’t get me wrong, I love a good trip to Dollywood and all that Sevier County has to offer. But if you live in Nashville and are trying to compare single day prices, it’s hard to ignore the gem that is SoundWaves right in our backyard.
All that SoundWaves has to Offer
If you’ve followed me at all, you know we get over to SoundWaves whenever we can. It’s become a staple for our family celebrations too. Unline other outdoor water parks where weather can be a factor, SoundWaves has equally amazing indoor and outdoor attractions.
Just in case you aren’t in the know, allow me to share an overview of all SoundWaves offer:
Soundwaves is a 4 acre, 3-level luxury indoor/outdoor water experience with dedicated recreation zones for adults, young children and families. It features:
