Remember the legendary Opryland? That park closed in 1997, but over 20 years later, theme park thrills may be returning to Nashville.
According to a report by the Nashville Business Journal, a theme park named Storyville Gardens has been proposed by a company named Guerrier Development. The park is said to be designed by Storyland Studios, who previously worked on major attractions like Universal Studios Florida’s Hogwarts Express.
Concept art reveals that the park will have an international theme, taking guests through several different continent-themed lands. Though the exact attractions remain under wraps.
The theme park would reportedly create almost 4,000 jobs in the area, which would be a boon to the local economy.
According to the park’s official website:
Storyville Gardens is far more than a theme park. With the intent to challenge the literacy statistics, Storyville is designed to ignite the desire to read beyond what is required in a classroom from toddlers to teens and adults alike. It is an imagination-driven, interactive entertainment destination where stories engage and connect visitors with a sense of adventure, fantasy and fun to the experiences of the park, the Storybook Retail, Dining; and Entertainment Village, and three extraordinary hotels with themes ranging from the majestic and enchanting to discovery and adventure. Storyville Gardens will be a majestic place that enriches the life of an entire community through all forms of story telling.
That leaves quite a lot to the imagination. What kind of attractions would you like to see at a park like this?
