I've been visiting Nashville Shores, for many years and I always have a wonderful time. They have awesome pools, lots of water slides and water attractions. My favorite is the water bucket drop. The park isn't too large which is a good thing. Nashville Shores, is a wonderful place for families! They have a swimming beach, too and it is... More

A little pricey, but very fun ropes course. Did all 4...the last one is pretty challenging, but worth it. The rest of my group quit after 3, which still makes for a full afternoon. Guides are a bit underwhelming, but looks like it's a fun summer job for them. You can make it as easy or as hard as you... More

Not much to do there really. After you go year after year, it gets pretty dull. If you aren't under 8, there's not that much excitement anymore. Food is way over priced. For the price of a ticket, the "extras" should be cheaper.

If you visit always buy passes if you plan on going more than once. It is well with it. I hear they are adding anew attraction this year! My 6 year old loves it and it is a relaxing time for parents too. There have been some - reports if parents who don't want to watch their kids but don't... More

I buy a season pass every single year to Nashville shores. It is a bit pricey, but in 1-2 visits, it pays for itself. The great thing about Nashville shores is that it is a fun place to go in the summertime to cool off in a land-locked state! Having grown up near the beach, this is a necessary getaway... More

There is nothing wrong with Nashville Shores per se, it's just definitely not one of the greater waterparks I've ever been to. It's really the only waterpark option in the Nashville area, so if you are set on going to a waterpark while in town, or need a place to kill a day with kids, it's a perfectly fine option.... More

Thanks for your visit and your review. We hope you will visit us again. In 2015, we are adding a new, multi-million dollar slide called the Big Kahuna. This will be a 6-story slide featuring exciting twists and turns and amazing drops and up to four people can enjoy this thrilling experience. We are unsure if you visited last year,... More

They offer a "Buy one Night get the Second night Half Price" sounds good but you actually have to book only 2 nites at a time and pay for them together?? I booked 4 nights in a row and was not eligible to receive the discount. Of course they never told me that until I had walked in and paid.... More

It may not be all that big if you are a waterpark enthusiast but it has your typical slides a wave pool, lazy river and great areas for the little folks. It has a great Treetop adventure not included in watermark price. But look for coupons on their web site for discounts. This resort also has an RV park and... More

Site #5 - Stayed three nights the end of September, 2014. Acorns hitting roof kept me awake much of the first night. Hook-ups were good - water, electric, sewer, cable. Cable signal was weak.

If you live near Nashville Shores... it is a GREAT place where you can have a water fun at a moderate price. I believe season passes are around $65 this coming year. If you are a tourist.. this place is expensive! I believe a one-time-pass is around $30 per person. With a 9$ parking fee. There are very few adult... More
