NASHVILLE, Tenn., (WKRN) — For 25 years, Opryland U.S.A. attracted millions of people each year to Music City.

The amusement park operated from 1972 to 1997. It offered thrill rides, live entertainment and more to draw in families from all across the country, especially the South.

We invite you to take a trip down memory lane. We dust off archived video from 1995 that a News 2 crew captured as they road on the Flume Zoom! The ride was later renamed the Dulcimer Splash.
