Posted: Updated: May 30, 2011 08:43 PM

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Officials had to stop letting people into Wave Country after the water park reached capacity Monday afternoon.

The park, located at 2320 Two Rivers Parkway, just off Briley Parkway in Donelson, reached its max occupants around 1:30 p.m.

Extra duty police officers were called to the park's gates to help with crowd control.

Authorities estimated there were approximately 2,000 people inside the facility on Monday afternoon.

Officials told Nashville's News 2 a small scuffle broke out between pool goers after learning the pool had reached capacity.

Police continued to restrict access to the park until deciding to close the Metro owned pool early.  

At just $10 a day for kids ages three to 12 and $12 day for ages 13 and above, Wave Country offers a cheaper way to cool down during the hot summer months.

Monday's high temperature reached into the mid 90s.

After Monday, Wave Country will be closed through Thursday.  The park will reopen Friday, June 3, and is open daily through August 14.

Beginning August 15 through Labor Day weekend, the park is only open on the weekends.
