NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Gaylord Opryland's SoundWaves celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

But it wasn't any ordinary opening; water park officials wanted to do things differently and "crowd surf."

After the ribbon cutting ceremony, celebrities caught a few waves on the surf simulator to raise money for Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.

SoundWaves is the nation's first indoor and outdoor water resort. It is to only hotel guests.
