On Wednesday (1/25/17), officials announced a new luxury indoor/outdoor water park will be built at the Gaylord Opryland Resort.
The new water park, SoundWaves, will include a lazy river, a 45.5-foot slide tower, a wave pool with a giant LED movie screen, a child's play area and an adults-only pool, among other features.
The $90 million project is expected to generate 1,287 full-time construction jobs and 699 permanent full-time positions.
Construction is anticipated to last about 20 months and the water park is tentatively expected to open in the fall of 2018.
