Rather than design a haunted house around cheap scare tactics or imaginary monsters, The 99 grounds its theatrical tour of the grotesque in sobering reality. The show has no shortage of frights, but each brutally dramatic scene takes inspiration from the leading causes of death for teens and young adults.
The production derives its name from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's statistics, which report that 99 people aged 12–24 die in America every day—a grand total of nearly 37,000 lives annually. Guests take a guided tour of the 20,000-square-foot theater, where they pass through 14 rooms filled with spectacularly made-up actors who vividly recreate the deaths of teens and young adults by drugs, drunken driving, and peer violence.

A trusty team of valets supervises Executive Travel & Parking’s fenced lot every hour of the day, screening all entrants and helping patrons with their luggage. Travelers simply park their cars under the canopy—which saves them from rain or loose airplane feathers—and allow the valet to park the car in the lot. While you’re away, the valets can wash the vehicle or perform an oil change before steering it back under the canopy just prior to your arrival.
Bluewater Scuba, a PADI Five-Star Instructor Development Center, helps aquatic adventurers achieve underwater prowess during the comprehensive diver-certification course. The staff of professional PADI instructors guide students through up to 8 classroom hours, up to 12 hours in the facility's heated pool, and 16 hours watching Free Willy on loop. The staff and divers then migrate into the aquatic splendor of a local rock quarry for four certification dives, divvied between two days. At the beginning of each pool-training and certification dive, amphibious pupils are outfitted with rental buoyancy compensators, regulators, gauges, and tanks. Afterward, the newly certified divers receive PADI Open Water Diver certification cards, which represent lifetime PADI certification and VIP access to local pools' deep ends.
There are city tours, and then there's the Music City Rollin' Jamboree. A far cry from the typical monotone tourist-trap travelogues, the Rollin' Jamboree is a rolling comedy club that serves up Nashville's biggest sights, captures its rambunctious spirit, sings some of its most famous songs, and shares some city secrets that most guides aren't privy to. Jamboree host Jessie, trained by the revered comedy institution The Groundlings, keeps the bus in stitches while leading sing-alongs, while fellow host Jenny, who hails from Nashville, is the resident "country music expert." She shares the inside scoop on Nashville's biggest stars and narrates the adventure through the city. One of Nashville's top country crooners, Devon Cox, is also along for the ride, forming a trio that keeps tour-goers laughing and singing throughout. Hot spots on the tour include favorites such as Music Row, The Country Music Hall of Fame, the Ernest Tubb Record Shop, and the city's slew of historic honkytonks. It also covers new turf, including the Johnny Cash Museum, shooting sites for ABC's Nashville, and American Pickers' star Mike Wolfe's Antique Archeology shop.
