We visited the pyramid and discovered a place that is like nothing else on the planet. An ancient pyramid looms over the city of Memphis. Well, maybe not ancient. But, since 1991, the "Great American Pyramid" has welcomed travelers as they journey over the Mississippi River on I-40. And, the pyramid boasts a strange history, with a past life as a sports arena, events space, and even an abandoned structure nicknamed the "Tomb of Doom" due to rumors of a curse incurred by the founder of the Hard Rock Café.

One of the largest pyramids in the world is a Bass Pro Shops megastore in Memphis, Tennessee. The pyramid also hosts a hotel, indoor swamp, and bowling alley. However, for roughly a decade, the pyramid was empty – and some believed it was cursed due to a crystal skull installed by the owner of the Rainforest Café.
