Nashville, TN – Nashville Shores is transforming its waterpark in 2020 with the addition of Mega Mayhem, which will be the largest waterslide addition in the history of the waterpark. The massive family raft ride is scheduled to be ready for guests to enjoy on opening day in May.
“Mega Mayhem is a family-thrill water slide that we are excited to bring to Middle Tennessee in 2020,” said Larry Edgmon, general manager of Nashville Shores. “This unique, thrilling ride is actually like two water slides in one. It is a hybrid slide featuring two distinct elements with a tornado funnel and a giant four-story wall that will provide a memorable group experience for families and friends.”
Beginning atop a towering 6-story platform, the whole family will experience an unforgettable adventure together on Mega Mayhem, an exciting, colossal family raft ride. Rafts will carve through a dark serpentine tunnel, then drop suddenly through a chute into the tornado funnel, where they swing between zero-gravity moments and dizzying drops. The raft then picks up speed down a 45-degree angle which then thrusts riders up and across the massive 40-foot high, near-vertical wall. Rushing off the wave, riders sweep into a thrillingly, narrow enclosed slide, through a waterfall, and into the splash pool. Mega Mayhem will be the only water slide of its type in Tennessee, and one of only 6 in the entire world. No public money will be used for this addition.
“This is the biggest water slide that we have ever put in Nashville Shores,” said Edgmon. “Beside the thrills guests will experience on the slide, the view of the waterpark and Percy Priest Lake from the tower is going to be incredible.”
Mega Mayhem will feature a new tube conveyor lift to transport tubes to the top of the attraction. The slide will be developed by ProSlide Technology, an innovative leader in the manufacturing of award-winning water park thrill rides. The company has installed thousands of slides in hundreds of waterparks across the world including Atlantis, Disney’s Blizzard Beach, and various Six Flags parks.
In addition to the new attraction, Nashville Shores will undergo extensive renovations throughout the park with numerous upgrades including new retail and concession areas, additional signage, increased deck areas, landscaping, and other improvements.
“We are adding an incredible slide and renovating existing facilities to provide families and visitors of all ages an unmatched guest experience,” said Edgmon. “Nashville Shores not only offers the community a first-class waterpark, but it’s a great place for a staycation with lakeside cabin rentals and the perfect place to host a family reunion or company picnic. If you haven’t been to the Shores recently, you need to check us out in 2020!”
