The ticket building from Opryland?
Got a problem with RWB/MS? you've got a problem with me!
I pray that I will never see a Six Flags Conneaut Lake

That's pretty neat. I'm glad they could save it as oppose to tearing it apart in '98 for the mall. Why did they close in the first place? It's not like they didn't have any money, becasue they opened up a big mall.

I have a question about the coasters. On RCDB it lists all their coasters as being in storage at Old Indiana Fun Park, but that park is defunct as well. Some of their coasters were not that old, is this a fallacy on RCDB, or is their plans to reopen OIFP, or are the rides on the market. Just seems that the coasters could still be operated at other parks.

Premier Parks bought the Old Indiana park site after the park closed and was auctioned. Then, when Opryland became Shopryland, Premier bought most of the rides and moved them to (you guessed it) Old Indiana, in order to open the new park there. They proceeded to move the SLC to The New Marine World Africa USA Theme Park, set it up, and called it Kong. Then Premier got distracted by buying Six Flags, and so instead of becoming a park, Old Indiana has become a sort of Six Flags corporate boneyard.
I visited the site earlier this summer. I don't have the exact URL handy but there is a link to it here
to my illustrated trip report.
