Chaos was an enclosed steel roller coaster at Opryland USA in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Built by Vekoma, it opened on March 25, 1989 at a cost of $7,000,000 USD. The ride used numerous audio and visual effects, supplied by New York-based R/Greenberg Associates, to enhance the experience.[2][3]


Chaos opened on March 25, 1989.

After the closure of Opryland USA in 1997, many rides, including Chaos, were purchased by Six Flags (then known as Premier Parks) and placed at Old Indiana Fun-n-Water Park in Thorntown, Indiana, USA, a property Six Flags planned to develop.[4] In 2002, the property was sold off but a deal allowed Six Flags to keep rides on the property until 2006.

In early 2006, the train from Chaos (which was the longest in the world) was offered for sale. By this time, the track had been scrapped.
