I was taken aback by some of the comments about Dollywood...in The Tennessean comments.
Yeah, but they dunno what all this project is gonna entail yet and they already think it sucks... it's a bit ridiculous if you ask me. This land was never gonna be home to a new theme park anyway, it's not large enough.
I agree 100%!
I'm saying when any amusement park related news in Nashville happens, it brings out some crazy emotions. Salt on wounds...that kind of thing. It's been a generation and a half since Opryland closed. they prob deserve a little slack, and like Eric said, not necessarily best and brightest make comments.
We know what Dolly is capable of, Nashville doesn't, yet. It will be great.
