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 very small drop in the bucket. In total, more than one million gallons of water fuel summer fun at the water park, pulling off feats such as accelerating a person to 25 miles per hour. It's the Music City Racer?a five-story water slide?that accomplishes that, while seven other slides twist, weave, and plunge towards 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.
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.
