Opryland USA | Memories of Nashville | NPT

For more than 26 years, a 212-acre area of eastern Davidson County in Tennessee was The Home of American Music and so much more to millions of music and thrill-ride fans. Opryland, USA, which opened in 1972, was the first major theme park dedicated to live performances, and as any kid who rode the Grizzly River Rampage or the Wabash Cannonball can attest to, howls of laughter and screams of joy were an important part of the experience.

Nashville Public Television gives fans of the park, and viewers throughout Middle Tennessee, a chance to journey back to the park with MEMORIES OF OPRYLAND, the latest installment in the Memories of Nashville series. This segment of the documentary looks at the great rides that made Opryland worth a visit as well as Opryland’s biggest fan: Roy Acuff.
