Music City Racer Slide
Location: Nashville, TN
HFR provided structural engineering services for a new 6-Lane Multi-Racer slide which was part of the largest expansion in the history of the water park. The racer begins atop a towering, five-story platform. Guests then travel at speeds up to 35 mph on a single raft as they descend down the slide. As riders plunge down the tract, they “get air” careening down the 350 foot slide. After a ride of more than the length of a football field, the riders coast to a stop at the bottom of the slide.
HFR provided the site work layout, including walkways for the new slide, fencing, etc.; construction survey layout for foundation grade and positioning; and structural design for foundation and structural steel for the slide and the tower extension. HFR also designed the water system and the filtering system
