Having to watch that pre-show a dozen times was crazy annoying, as was seeing the empty trains rolling by. On my second visit they actually let people walk straight through the room if they chose, which was much better. The drop on Zeppelin is great, but after the cobra roll it was forgettable. And there was DEFINITELY some misalignment of the piece of track after the midcourse, the whole train shuffled diving into that helix.

THIS! Had the park been located in Las Vegas, or hell, even in Orlando with as crowded of a theme park market it is here, it would have had a much better chance of survival. It also didn't help that all of the coasters were not memorable. Really, the only really stand-out ride in the park was Nights in White Satin.
I agree with Robb and Joey. It was also crazy to charge $50 (as I recall) for admission--definitely too much for the market in Myrtle Beach. They really had to start running "special deals" early on just to get people to visit the park.
Wish I had seen Knights in White Satin. I heard it was pretty trippy. However, I must say, Monsters of Rock wasn't that bad. It was funny and campy in all it's florescent glory. Considering I only paid $5 bucks per person to get in to the park. It was a great day for me n' tha family unit. And as I recall, we had some pretty good BBQ in the country area.
Yeah, considering that Myrtle Beach is a good golf and beach place but definitely not a place to have theme parks and consider that where Hard Rock was located was about a mile away from the beach it's no wonder why it closed. Myrtle beach is definitely not the place to create a big amusement park of attraction let alone a theme park.
