Hard Rock / Freestyle Music Park Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I was down at Myrtle Beach a couple of weeks ago, and went by the Hard Rock Park preview center. I also got some pics of the actual coaster, under construction! The local news said that it is going very smoothly, and is ahead of schedule.

 

There's still major construction going on, but the park should be open for the 2008 season. Give me a call anytime someone wants to go to this park, I missed the first Deep South tour!

Looking the other way, showing the entire ride so-far constructed, including the loading platform. The big Zeppelin cover hasn't been put on it yet.

The Led Zeppelin coaster, located along a side road, so it was possible to get fairly close.

Best picture I could get of the whole thing.

Another angle. They will have several coasters, and a dark ride.

I wonder what a punk-themed coaster would be like?

British invasion section. I'm not sure if that is the Austin Powers car.

Different areas of the preview center mirror the different zones in the park, which include hard rock, country, 60s/70s, British invasion, and more.

Side view. This is the best picture that I could take through the plexiglass case.

Sand sculpture. They're really going all-out on this park, even though its nowhere near as big as Disney. Major $$$ going into this.

Yes, its the real bus from the movie!

I envision a good, classic punk song on a ride that is something like Son of Beast, T2, and Furious Baco rolled into one so that you get the simulation of the hundreds of idiots around you at a punk concert that think moshing is cool.

 

Great TR though! I love those pics alongside Led Zeppelin, and the sand sculpture is impressive. I'm really amped about this place. I can't wait to visit next August.

Am I the only one that doesn't think Led Zeplin looks that impressive? It isn't the lack of size, it just seems like an average coaster with some very unoriginal elements. I don't get the hype. There are going to be a lot of disappointed people out there.

I do think the on board stereo sounds cool and I am a big Zeplin fan. The color scheme is very cool as well.

Overall the park looks sweet, I am just not buying this coaster as one of the best of '08.

I knew we couldn't make it 2 pages about a new coaster without a complaint. I know that it doesn't look all that impressive from an enthusiast standpoint, probably no forces, no unique elements, etc... But, this is a brand new park and they want to start off big. They are going to make their first coaster one that the GP will love. I am sure the GP is liking this just by the way it looks. Even though there is a ton of us fellow enthusiasts out there, there is way more GP.

 

Is the other coaster across the lake an inverted?

^ They got the little suspended water coaster from Emerald Pointe, there are also supposed to be 3 other coasters at the park.

 

Let's see...

 

Cedar Fair jacked up my season pass price for Carowinds.

Took away free parking.

Took away ERT.

 

What do you think I'll be doing next year?

 

It sure won't be getting a season pass to Carowinds!

Also, how the heck is a 150ft tall coaster unimpressive? It looks really fun. It's like having Kumba 3.5 hours away instead of 10!

Am I the only one who thinks the Led Zep ride first drop isnt going to make it through that loop.

 

This a B&M coaster now. They don't put heartline rolls on the lowest section of the ride just to tell everyone it needs to be removed five day before opening.

There is probably a trim so if the train is going into it to fast it wont create headbanging on that twist, I mean would you rather have the fun weightlessness with calculated speed, or vekoma headbanging on a B&M.

So true...its just how the angle of the photo was taken, I didnt realize that it was 30 feet higher than the loop. Looks like fun!
