And here's the little extra story:

My band "The Cedar Kings". "Ordinary Day" a trip report in song.
Gaylord will never ever get it right.
IMHO, You're giving them too much credit with the idea of clever parking options. Not that it couldn't be done, but if history is any indication of the future, then this will be another mistake in the waiting.
They could do it Blackpool Pleasure Beach style and load those 105 acres up with an infinite number of attractions, but I'm a betting man and I know how incapable & stingy Gaylord is at running an amusement park. They have a proven history of doing big things on the cheap, so why would this be any different? Look at how Opryland barely ever added any attractions, and eventually failed. Look at how Fiesta Texas failed in its first few years and Gaylord sold its shares in the place. How many failures does one business need before people wake up??

What I find really amusing is the rumor floating around among locals that the farm land of Bonnaroo (large music festival with national acts) southeast of Nashville has been bought by SF for a park.
As for Ole South USA, I personally hope that it does happen. It's a long shot, but the guy trying to get it going seems to have his head on straight.
The reporter spoke with a couple of homeowners around the 105 acres to see what the rumours going around were. The rumours included an amusement park, casino, and he also mentioned relocating the Grand Ole Opry house to the 105 acres, and then redeveloping the land where the current G.O.O. house is now...probably for more freakin outlet mall space.
LOVED seeing the Rock and Roller coaster again! sigh
