Royal Drive-In

Meridian, MS

Located on the southwest corner of this small Southern town just off I-20. One of numerous closed drive-in theatres that dot the undeveloped parts of American suburbia. Part of the land seems to have been converted to a racing facility of some kind.

More interesting is a gate that is the remnant of the Royal Land amusement park, which presumably had some connection with the drive-in as an entertainment complex. A blog posting mentioning the park indicates that it closed after financial problems associated with a ride injury and briefly served as an RV park. Although I chose not to venture through the weeds, supposedly some fountain bases remain from the amusement park days.

You can ban words but you can't ban intent. If you ban the words, that just causes the hatred of you to go underground. I'd rather see my enemies and know who they are, then I can know how to fight them. (Lady Bunny)
