My memories are foggy but wasn't there a store there in the 80s that had a play area for kids? I remember when you walked into the store, to the left, there was a place for kids to climb up. Might have been a TV up there, maybe a small slide down? Basically the spot mom told us "ok play here while I shop."

We lived in Norfolk and Portsmouth so we didn't go to Lynnhaven often but that's what I remember. Oh and the carousel.

Talking Memories Of Lynnhaven Mall

I moved to VA Beach in November of 1989 when I was 6 years old, so I've seen at least quite a few changes occur in that mall over the years...I remember the Montgomery Wards, The Enigma Water Fountain, The AMC that was up on the 2nd floor, and the old AMC that was an individual building over by Marshall's (eventually turning into a Go-Cart place and now a vacant building) . I also remember BEFORE the parking garage was there haha! I think the coolest thing back in the old days was the record stores that were around back then. there was Record Bar, Camelot Music, Warehouse Music, Blockbuster Music, and There was a mini-store inside of Montgomery Wards Called "Electric Avenue" does anyone else remember that?!

Random memories: Merry Go Round (clothes store with club type wear), movie theater top left, music store back top center, Lucas Pizza (great Sicilian slices), Leggetts....right now not so happy with the new, downgraded kid's area, no more carousel , and all the annoying vendors.

BCG, You have a killer memory.. & you bring up a good point about Lynnhaven's extinct music selection.. I've moved in and out of Hampton Roads over the years, and noticed when I was @ Lynnhaven recently all the music stores were gone. The one upstairs I believe just closed recently (?)

Help me sort out all the music stores you cited.. Which one was upstairs (?), and do u remember there was one right near the entrance of JCPenney's back in the early/mid 90s.. (do u remember the name of that one ?) Also there was Record Exchange out at Lynnhaven North back in the mid 90s. They sold a lot of punk/underground vinyl, etc.. and SunCoast was selling some cds & videos inside the mall circa late 90s.. /good times/

Man, I love all these memories, and I remember Camelot music and I went to that AMC theatre many times outside the mall. I don't know if I went in Scence but I had a cool Stussy jacket that I lost and I would like to get one again sometime.

Spent many a nights in the old Flipper McCoys that shared the parking lot, as we as at the Photon Gallery down the way. As for the mall itself, wasn't much of a mall-rat there, crappy old Pembroke mall was the meet up spot.

Yeah, I remember the Flippers at the edge of Lynnhaven's parking lot. I think it shared it's building with a Zero's (or Mr. Jim's), some kinda' sub shop right (?) I was over there occasionally in the 90s. Flippers (including the one on Atlantic) was kinda' the ruff riders' arcade

Speaking of Pembroke, remember Space Port (arcade @ the front of the mall). They had a cool, classic '80s exterior, little space ship portholes. Good times.
