Wabash Cannonball was a steel roller coaster located in the State Fair area of Opryland USA in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Built by Arrow Dynamics, operated there from 1975 to 1977. Premier Parks bought the ride and twelve others from the closed park and placed them on the spot of Old Indiana Fun-n-Water Park, where they planned to build a new theme park. Since Premier Parks where focusing on their recently acquired Six Flags parks, this didn't happen and the ride lay in storage until 2003, when it was eventually scrapped.
