I had some great memories of Opryland (theme park). I was only 7 or 8 years old at this point... I probably rode The Wabash Canonball over 100 times... and once Hangman opened up I had to ride it. There was only one problem though... I was 1/2" too short. My dad and I got in line, hoping they would let me slide since I was soooo close to being tall enough. We get up to the top, the dude measures me... I get no slack. They say I'm too short and have to leave. We had a back-up plan. My dad had brought enough socks to stuff my shoes with, giving me an extra inch in height or so. We got back in line and when we made it to the top, the guy gave me a really, really weird look... like "how the **** did this 8 year old munchkin just grow an inch in less than an hour?" Well, there's nothing he could say, and he let me on through. We rode Hangman at least 10 times in a row that day. That would be the only time I had the chance to ride it. The theme park was shut down a week or so later. Sad times. It's a damn shame they shut down Opryland and replaced it with a crap mall. For a while, Kentucky Kingdom was fun. Now, it's absolutely disgusting.
