^ I also feel like a Hard Rock Hotel would have worked... but not at the location the park was at. Now if they put it at Broadway at the Beach near the Hard Rock Cafe, then I could see it doing well. Actually if the whole park was over near there, I could have seen it surviving if they lowered the ticket prices a bit.
^I think location was the the park's biggest issue. Access from the beach area was poor, and people go to Myrtle Beach for just that--the beach. Being closer to the waterfront would've helped (along with more realistic operating hours and admission prices).
^Exactly. People go to beaches for the beach, mixed with some activities that only take a few hours at a time - mini golf, pools, go karts, even the Pavilion. You don't take a family trip to the beach with the expectation of blowing $200 on four tickets and spending an entire day at a theme park, that just isn't what beach trips entail to the average person.
Last Ride: California Screamin' (DCA) Next Ride: Intimidator 305 (KD)
The Premier coaster is a fun little ride, too. Led Zeppelin/Time Machine has a great drop and is smooth through the cobra roll, but then becomes a forceless, rattly disappointment. I just hope the decision is made one way or another in the next 6 months or so. Sell the rides before they are no longer usable.

They will be usable for a long time, it doesn't go as fast as one would think for a ride to get unusable .Sure you might need a few parts swap out and so after a few years, but they will certainly be usable.
Besides, the park still has one employe who is there to run the rides and maintain them every now and then, so they will not rust away.
Nr 1 Liseberg and Gröna Lund fanboy! Piraten is *the* roller coaster (after finally riding Expedition Geforce, I'll admit, it was pretty freaking awesome to!) .
I hate to bump this thread, but I was emptying out my emails today and I came across an email I sent to SallyCorp regarding Nights in White Satin.
I was inquiring about the music track for the ride, a re-recorded version of the song performed by Moody Blues. The answer I got regarding the status of the song was quite perplexing.
As far as the music track for the ride you are correct that it is not for sale any where and I do not imagine it will ever be for sale. As I oversaw the installation from the park side I know that the track was a special designed track done in studio by the park and Moody Blues and is owned by the park and there for it will never be made into an album.
Rather bizarre. Anyone have any idea who exactly picked up the rights to the song when the park went Bankrupt?
Here's a video of the ride with the soundtracked version of the song:
