Where Every Family Matters

Nashville Shores Unveils New Waterslide

The park opens its doors seven days a week beginning May 25.

Nashville Shores Lakeside Resort, located on the shores of Percy Priest Lake, unveiled its new, multi-million dollar slide Riptide Racer at its opening celebration.

To celebrate, they hosted Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee for friendly competition — providing free water park tickets and season passes for those who rode the new water slide — and donated $1,000 to the organization.

About the Riptide Racer

Standing over five stories tall, longer than a football field and featuring four racing lanes, Riptide Racer is the longest slide of its type in the world.

The slide challenges visitors to speed headfirst down the slide on a single mat to race their family and friends through a twisting and turning, side-by-side course. Children must be 42 inches or taller to ride.

This state-of-the-art, competition-centric slide takes everything guests love about Nashville’s largest water park and elevates it with an all-new level of healthy competition and family-friendly fun.

“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.”

David Edwards, chief development officer of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee, was in attendance to accept the donation.

“We can’t thank Nashville Shores enough for partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee in this way and inviting so many of our awesome young people out to their water park,” Edwards said. “It was fantastic to see everyone relaxing and having fun in the sun! I also can’t forget to mention how generous this donation is as it will help us continue to serve these young people and our communities.”
