Opryland is an amusement park located in Nashville, Tennessee, U.S. that is owned by Ryman Hospitality Properties and operated by Carwardine Parks. It first opened in 2003.

History

The new Opryland park was built 5 miles from the original park. The park was originally themed to four different music genres: Country USA (country music), British Rock! Garden (rock music), Popryland (pop music), and Rasta Reggae Island (reggae music).

In 2004, Apex Valley, a ProSlide Tornado was added to the waterpark. This is the first Tornado slide in the state of Tennessee.

In 2006, Double Dash Dueler would debut at the park.

The current manager of the park is Mason Cetkovska, the brother of Mandy Cetkovska.
