Nashville Shores

shores2The kids and I visited Nashville Shores last Sunday and we all had a great time. The grounds and unique lake setting were beautiful, and the staff was super friendly.  The water park wasn’t too big to get lost in, but had a lot of different water things to do. We rode the Big Kahuna (6 story raft slide) together as a family and I was the only one who screamed the entire way down. The kids were laughing and making fun of me for being such a chicken. I just can’t help it! While the kids went on a few more “scary” slides, I enjoyed the Lazy River and Wave Pool. I mostly went between these two the entire time.

The great thing about Nashville Shores is that it is a fun place to go in the summertime to cool off. It was 97 degrees the day we went. The cool water felt really good. There is something for everyone; hair-raising water slides, wave pool, lazy river, children’s splash park and shallow pools.

What we didn’t like:

The park was very crowded (probably because we went on a Sunday). The inner tubes are free but were almost impossible to get – we ended up walking instead of floating through the lazy river. Weekdays are probably you best bet.

Have you visited Nashville Shores yet?

Have a great weekend and thanks for reading!! Xo

    I’m not overly fond of Nashville Shores. I think the ticket prices are expensive, especially for a large family. It’s ALWAYS crowded. All the “extras” that cost extra are just too much. My kids want to do all of it and if we did, it’d cost us 100.00 to get in and do all the extras. The water is just too cold. Seriously… it feels like cave water.

      Karen, I agree. $36.99 plus tax for general admission plus $9 parking is high, especially for a large family.I do believe they have online specials for $26.99. You are not going to find a water park cheaper than this. We used to live in Los Angeles and parking alone was $17. Nashville Shores was crowded, but the cool water felt very nice. Perfect for cooling off on a hot day. But they need to have more inner tubes. My son didn’t get one until minutes before we left. Have a great weekend!

    It was so much fun! I agree though, the inner tubes were so hard to get and a necessity for the lazy river due to how tall I am– it was too shallow for me to swim in.

    We want to visit on opening day (due to be in the area for another event) which is May 14th 2016. Will this be too cold? I hate being uncomfortably cold and this is worrying me! The extended forecast says 83 and sunny but will the water be too cold? Any feed back is appreciated!!!!

      Hi Cindy! We went on a very hot day in the middle of summer (97 degrees) so the cool water felt really nice, even for me and I hate being in cold water.Kids usually don’t care, haha! Right now it’s 55 degrees in Nashville… I don’t know if the water will have a chance to heat up by May 14. I think your best bet is to call Nashville Shore a few days before they open and ask what their current water temperature is.This place isn’t cheap and I’d hate for you to freeze.
