What does a $10 million dollar investment in Memphis’ Mud Island Park look like? A quarter-mile long zipline across the Wolf River Harbor! Prepare to propel yourself across our Downtown Riverfront as The Forge Memphis offers aerial adventures and more.
This project stems from a partnership between Bacon and DCA Founder Doug Carpenter, the brains behind vital, local ventures like Explore Bike Share, Big River Crossing, Liberty Park, and Mighty Lights.
The experiences will include two Skybridge Zipline Tour, an Aerial Challenge Course & Climbing areas, a food & beverage operation in the current Gulf Grill space, along with activations of music, races, festivals, and events to supplement the Downtown Memphis event calendar.
The Forge Memphis is anticipated to open in summer of 2023.
The launch will coincide with the official unveiling of Tom Lee Park 2.0. Peep the official press release below for the full scoop.
