New in 2015, the Big Kahuna family raft ride begins atop a towering 57 foot platform before blasting visitors into a dark, enclosed tunnel with a series of unpredictable twists and turns, drops, and back-to-back curves. The raft then shoots through the tunnel opening, splashes through the s-shaped waterway, and rears onto the high bank walls before splashing down in the catch pool. Every five minutes, the Giant Bucket of Fun at Nashville Shores topples over, releasing approximately 500 gallons of water onto the people below. But in the grand scheme of Nashville Shores, that big splash is still a drop in the bucket. In total, more than one million gallons of water fuel summer fun at the water park, as on a five-story Music City Racer slide that whisks riders along at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour. Seven other slides dot the park, twisting and plunging toward splash pools filled with extra-cushy water droplets. Nashville Shores also features Kowabunga Beach, a large wave pool, and a lazy river, as well as a four-story water treehouse for kids.
The water park isn't the only attraction. Over in Treetop Adventure Park, visitors swing and climb across large aerial obstacle courses complete with Tarzan swings, zip-lines, and hanging nets. Sometimes, though, you can't improve on mother nature. Percy Priest Lake nestles right up to the grounds of Nashville Shores, which offers volleyball, kayak, rides, and more.
Nashville Shores also features 100 RV sites, 20 lakeside cabins, a 320-slip marina, Jet-Ski rentals and pontoon boat rentals.
