Apparently Carolina Circle Mall hasn't been just a mall. According to this picture, the mall's also been a skate park.
Coincidentaly, I was talking to some people today who were saying that Carolina Circle's a great place to skate. Well, it was. The building's about gone.
Carolina Circle Mall seems to be a real skating attraction. You could also ice skate there.
From what I've noticed about the mall's design, it had a great structure for skating. I have no experience in skating, but places like the Dillard's entrances had "half-pipes".
So I wouldn't be surprised if the next Tony Hawk video game will have a Carolina Circle level.
