Grab your sunblock and put on your swimsuits and get ready to make a splash at these awesome waterparks!

If you've never felt the hot warm sun on your skin with the incredibly fun water slides and hanging out with your friends, then you're really missing out. Instead of getting a fake tan, get a real one by going to your nearest waterpark!

Top rated water parks in Tennessee includes Nashville Shores, located on Percy Priest Lake.

“Brave the waves in our gigantic wave pool, plunge down our 8 thrilling water slides, or, play, slide and splash in Kowabunga Beach, a massive water treehouse and playground,” boasts Nashville Shores.

In addition, to water slides and a wave pool, Nashville Shores is also a lakeside resort. This includes log cabins to stay at, ziplines, banana boat rides and sand volleyball.

“Treetop Adventure Park is an adventure course set in the beautiful woods of Nashville Shores Lakeside Resort featuring 100 exciting and challenging obstacles including suspended bridges, giant zip lines, cargo nets, Tarzan swings, and many thrilling other elements,” stated Nashville Shores.

To go along with the fantastic Nashville Shores, there are many other wonderful water parks located in Tennessee. This includes the American famous water park, Dollywood Splash Country, which is both an amusement park and waterpark.

“Mountain Waves is a 500,000-gallon attraction smack dab in the middle of Dollywood’s Splash Country. It’s a popular spot for guests of all ages: just grab a tube and float in the rolling waves,” says the Dollywood Blog.

This waterpark includes rides such as body slides, tube rides and an amazing wave pool.

“It was a fun experience and I highly recommend it!” said freshman Destynie Jones.

Rated number one place for summer fun in the smokies, this waterpark is famous for its amazing ride selection. Although the crime rate is higher for this specific waterpark than Nashville Shores, it is still lower than thousands of water parks across the U.S. This is a happy and affordable way to spend your time and money.

Next, the newest upscale indoor and outdoor waterpark in Tennessee, Soundwaves. Soundwaves is located in the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center at Nashville. This is more on the pricey side, but it's worth every cent!
