Protesters demand Governor Lee reopens Opryland Theme Park immediately


Nashville, TN - Less than 48 hours after Governor Bill Lee announced that the Tennessee Stay-at-Home order will expire on April 30, protesters returned to the State Capitol to demand the legislator also reopens Opryland USA Theme Park immediately.


A massive crowd chanted "Make your mark, open up the park" for an hour while attendees waved signs featuring photos of themselves as children enjoying rides such as the Grizzly River Rampage.


Protest organizer Greg Turner told reporters, "We consider the end of the Stay-at-Home order a huge victory, but now is the time to restore our city to the way it was meant to be. That includes reopening Opryland USA no later than May 1."


It is unclear if the protesters are aware that the park was torn down after 1997 or if it would even be possible to reconstruct the 120 acre park by the May 1 deadline.


The Inquisitor reached out to Governor Lee for his response and were asked to never call again.
