Ask any native of Nashville what they miss most, and many will tell you Opryland theme Park. What?! Nashville had a theme park?
Yes it did. It was really popular and just everybody had their first job there. It was where Opry Mills mall is now. The park shut down in 1997 after 25 years of roller coaster rides and snow cones.
People are still a little salty about it. Here's a documentary about the big attraction in Nashville before it was the "it" city.
