Fair Park Amusement Park in Nashville, Tennessee opened in 1952 and survived through 1987 when competition from Opryland USA killed it. It featured a big roller coaster (Skyliner, Paris After Dark, the Mad Mouse, Tilt-a-Whirl, bumper cars, hand cars, the Cyclone, pink & blue cotton candy, and an actual organ grinder with a little monkey that took money. Vietti Chili labels or RC Cola caps could get you a whole afternoon of rides. Fair Park also had a miniature golf course which held a tournament every labor day with the winner going to a national event.
