Shopping >Opry Mills
Enough with wanting the theme park back. I have finally had enough of you people complaining about tearing down the mall and bringing the Opryland theme park back. Face it its not coming back. They had no room to expand and couldn't compete with other theme parks. Just enjoy the memorys you had and stop all this complaining about something thats not going to happen. If you want a theme park go to Dollywood or Six Flags.
They are trying but...watch yourself. I must place only one star for Opry...it's not what it used to be and if fellas are not careful, it can be dangerous. Service is spotty at some vendors and retailers and I can't stress enough the safety factor. Until then, if you must go, go when shops just open and kids are in school. safety first!
Don't see what everyone's talking about. I don't know why everyone is complaining about the people here? I have been to Opry Mills several, several times and compared to all the other malls in this area, (Rivergate, Hickory Hollow, etc) this is the safest mall to be at. Yes they have had one shooting that I have heard about and this is not the only place. I even worked at BPS and I never felt safer! This is a wonderful mall and yes it is a LONG walk but isn't that what's wrong with the world today, NO ONE wants to get off their lazy butts...for those of you, say at home!
A nice place to get stampeeded.
Since Citysearch refuses to let me talk about the group violence witnessed at the place, let us just say search for Opry Mills Shootings. Then watch Paul Blart Mall Cop and you'll get an idea of what the kids there think of the mall security.
I tried linking articles about said violence, but it refuses to let me.
I've had 3 people I know in the mall at different times where they were afraid for their lives and potentially in danger in a little over a year. This is too much. Don't go there till security gets the place back under control.
Opry Mills is NOT SAFE!. This mall is horrible and has a serious lack of security. When we were there, the kids were running around the mall yelling and screaming, fighting, shooting and flashing g@ng signs. This mall does NOT take its security seriously. It was a nightmare. The theater employees acted like they could not even control their own theaters so we got our money back along with a bunch of others that could not put up with kids yelling, cussing, running around during movies. The mall security is horrible because it was obvious that g@ngs were there way before the violence happened. They were walking around in large groups with their identical colored outfits flashing g@ng signs at each other long before any shootings happened!!! It was a real nightmare there. It is NOT safe.
Beautiful Mall but Never ever ever again!. This has got to be one of the most awesome malls that I have gone to in years. Stores, shops, and restaurants that we visited were full of great deals. Visiting for the first time all the way from Louisville with my wife and my 7 and 11 year olds we were impressed with the Ray Petting atraction, the aquarium restaurant and a host of other family type activities. However... we will never ever go back! Having been caught in the midst of the violence which sprung up there over this weekend by the pack of Animals (the only way to describe them) which roam the halls looking to prove themselves as thugs and gangbangers, we found that it is just not worth it. On our first visit to this mall, we found ourselves literally running for our lives with our children, being rushed by the terrified and concerned mall employees into the back of the store, and cringing in terror as not only a huge fight broke out in the food court, but also listening to what sounded like gunshots rang out both inside and outside the mall. I lost sight of my 11 year old son for a few seconds as shoppers and diners stampeded in every direction. I watched as my 7 year old daughter cried to employees hiding in the storage area of a store how she did not want to die. Watched my wife crying in disbelief. Lost in the madness some of the great deals which we had purchased earlier. Found ourselves terrified as we finally found the nerve to try and get our children to the car and as far away from that mall as possible and even then, had our children ducking with their head down until we were safely back on the freeway. Short of the three or four mall security officers which was helpless to control the packs of gangbanger wannabes which roamed the halls at every turn, there was no visible police presence. They walk, talk, and rush most of the mall without regard. But most importantly, they take it upon themselves to put the lives and safety of bystanders into their own hands.
get over yourself.
For starters, the mall is massive, for those of you in your thirty's and complain about walking, get a wheel chair from guest services. I'm 43 and I have circled the mall dozens of times. Get off your lazy A$$ and quit complaining. Two, this mall is filled with nothing but little thugs who need a good old fashioned A$$ tanning.
Every weekend I come here to Macaroni Grill or to the Regal Cinema and this place is just overwhelmed by loud and obnoxious African American teenagers who lack self - respect, respect for others, and respect for the African American community. They claim to be "Crypt" , the fact of the matter is, I have been here in Nashville for a matter of 5 years. I am originally from LA and the Crypt and Bl00d g@ng rivalry happens on the street not in the food court or the movie theaters. Nashville is full of uneducated people, who lack common sense, the people driving, freak out if as much as a light rain occurs, and by far is the dumbest population I have ever seen in my life other than Daytona, Florida which was number one on my list, until I moved here. Nashville and all of its token tourist attractions are a joke. Nashville, you are are a joke, get over yourself. For crying out loud, do you realize just how nasty public swimming places are? Do you ever stop and think about the people who come to have cheap fun?
Bottom line, the mall is great, the people who shop there however, are not so great.
I love this mall!. I love the stores! Every time I go to Nashville I go to this mall! They have alot of stores such as American Eagle, Old Navy, Rue 21, Forever 21, Aeropsostale, Pacsun, & many more! I love going to the movies there also!
Quite lovely.... As being someone who has lived in many different countries, as well as many different cities here in america-I found it both fascinating and frustrating to read the reviews of some of the participants who has visited this mall. I found the Opry Mills mall to be quite lovely as well as spacious, and well executed with shops that are familiar to the average shopper-of all ages. I believe that many of the "locals" who visit this mall are quite jaded in regards to the changes that this mall has brought to the area. From the many different shops to the variety of food choices to the availability of the movies scheduled- I believe that everyone should experience this mall with an open mind, and make any judgments for themselves.
response to sharplooks!!!!!. Amen Brother!!! I completely understand what you mean, its so true, that mall is horrible and the jungle is scarey!!
