NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — A new waterslide opened at Nashville Shores this week, and it's the longest of its kind in the world.
The "Riptide Racer" stands 50-feet high and is longer than a football field. Waterpark guests travel headfirst on a mat to race on four lanes of the five-story platform.
“The Nashville Shores team couldn’t be more excited about opening the park this year and sharing the remarkable Riptide Racer with our guests,” said Daniel Strobel, director of marketing for Nashville Shores.
“It’s an honor to represent an establishment that has been a beacon of positivity and fun for locals and tourists over the past 25 years. We’re pulling out all the stops to celebrate the park’s history and our community this summer, starting with our donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee.”
Guests wishing to experience the Riptide Racer can buy a season pass for $69.99. General admission water park tickets for those 48 inches and taller can be purchased online for $39.99 with the Memorial Sale special. Junior, senior and military tickets cost $34.99 and will be available at the park. After 4 p.m., a twilight ticket option is available for $29.99. Children two years old and younger are free.
