Rolling Acres Mall Virtual Reality


          Years of sitting empty and abandoned has continued to the point that Google Streetview cars decided to finally drive around the desolate parking lot of Rolling Acres mall in Akron, Ohio. Backed by popularity in archived search results, the Streetview is recorded from December 2015, the latest look at the deterioration of the former mall. All I see it as is overgrown and vibrant, not archaic like the Coliseum, just a point paused in time.

         Rolling Acres Mall virtual reality should be an app as you take a realistic, detailed, 3D, visual tour of the mall property. All the former anchor stores and surrounding shops come to life on your portable device.

Lets take a look...

The former Target.


Former O'Neil/ May Co./ Kaufmann's/ Macy's. known as the store of broken windows.


Rolling Acres Cinema.


Former Target used as a storage center.


Former Sears, the last anchor to leave.
