Each tour guide is arrayed in an original Opryland park employee outfit, and will share with you interesting stories, personal memories, and historical facts about the theme park. Each tour includes a a thirty minute video about Opryland USA, including footage shot by visitors to the park during its twenty-six years in operation.
After the video, you'll be able to walk thru the river bed of what once was the Grizzly River Rampage, where you will have plenty of photo opportunities. You can also take pictures next to the "Opry Mills Sucks" and "Gaylord Stole My Childhood" signs.
And browse thru
Refreshments are available, including fruit-shaped fruit drinks, just like those sold at the original Opryland USA. So if you have fond memories of Opryland, or even if you never got to go to Opryland because your baby sister always got to go where she wanted on vacation, you will not want to miss the Opryland Historical Tour.

Well, that's my dream. My entrepreneurial thought for the week. Or for the year. Whichever. For more info, check out last year's post on Opryland Nostalgia.
"They put up a plant where we used to park. That old drive-in's a new Wal-Mart. The cafe is closed, where our names were carved in that corner booth. Yeah, everything's changed, except for the way I feel about you..."
