It’s been a VERY long time since I last went to Chicago Ridge Mall (Ever since I was about 8-11 years old), and boy has it changed A LOT. There was a small arcade right next to the food court, that now has been replaced with T-Mobile. There was also a movie theatre right across from the food court (I can’t remember what it was called…) that also had a few arcade games in it (I wanted to check it out, but of course.. I couldn’t, cause a. I was a kid at the time and b. Family members needed to make sure that they kept their eyes out on me at all times, since I tend to wander a lot, out of curiosity. I was a bit of an adventurer as a kid. Boy, if I had a camera during that time…), but that was also replaced with AMC Theatre.
There’s also The Athlete’s Foot that has been there since I was a kid, and it’s still there.. surprisingly. Here’s what I found when I visited there a few days ago.
This took almost two hours to do a color splash on. Anyway, I can’t remember if that carousel was there or not a little over a decade ago.. I believe it was. Still… Next time, I’ll plan on going on there.
I actually had fun exploring the mall again.. in a VERY long time. My inner child self was happy to get out and explore. Next time I go, it’ll be with friends and/or my babe.
