This Rare Footage Of A Nashville Amusement Park Will Have You Longing For The Good Old Days

Before Opryland Hotel & Resort was around, before Opry Mills, the land was actually taken by Opryland USA – a Nashville, Tennessee amusement park that was once the gem of Music City. Operational from 1972 to 1997, the park was known as the “Home of American Music.” There were quite a few hot rides and musical shows, all hinging on the edge of Tennessee’s historic love – music.
