Hard Rock Park Sneak Peak Photo Trip Report

Postby CoasterFreak24 » Tue Mar 18, 2008 5:34 am

So yesterday, I took a trip to Hard Rock Park to do the awesome sneak peak VIP tour. It was totally worth it. I have to say that this park will have one of the best atmosphere I've ever been too, the employees of Hard Rock were extremely friendly, including the parking guys. They still have tons of work to do still, but they are really close. ONLY a month! Enough talk, let the pictures do the talking and drooling.
- Reminder they didn't let us go to the back of the park due to the frequent construction, so I don't have as many pictures as I wanted, but do enjoy!

Image
I think I'm at the right spot..

Image
Yep, I'm at the right spot!

Image
Entrance Plaza

Image
The GATEWAY to heaven ;)

Image
Follow that white sign!

Image
Merchandise, of the many few shops they have.

Image
Slogans and Sayings, around the park you will see.

Image
Guitar awesomeness

Image
Closer View

Image
Side View

Image
The Plaza, where you enter the park from.

Image
One of the many rides at HRP. This one in Cool Country.

Image
Massive Theater where Ice Skating Shows will be in this building.

Image
Again.

Image
Fun Interactive cow for the kids. He talks to you and BEWARE! When he "utters," beware his "udders"!

Image
Again, another interactive station for the kids instead with water jets and wheels. You will see all kinds of interactive things for the kids to do.

Image
Eagles: Life in the Fast Lane. The renamed Vekoma mine ride, announced yesterday Morning.

Image
Logo!

Image
Again, water playground for the kids.

Image
What do I see in the background :lover:

Image
Led Zeppelin in all her glory!

Image
Amazing

Image
Just NOOO Comment needed.

Image
Second Loopage!~

Image
-

Image

Image

Image
Across the Lagoon

Image

Image

Image

Image
Maximum RPM! Across the lagoon.

Image
Slippery When Wet! - Don't mind the guitar :angry:

Image
Great statues you will see around the park.

Image
Who doesn't like signage?

Image
Again.

Image
Tiki Gods will take your SOLE!

Image
You will see some of these around the park, but mostly in restaurants.

Image
They are a tribute to the past away rock legends

Image

Image

Image
Interactive Guitar! Again, for the kids. When you strum the water under the guitar like strings, it will play a song. Not telling what song though :angel:

Image
Close-up.

Image
Section I didn't get to go see due again to constant construction.

There's still tons of things to do still, but I'm not going to give away the other amazing information that will be happening around HRP.
I will tell you that the lagoon will have an nightly lazer/water jet show featuring the massive guitar.
Well thanks for viewing and reading!

Thank you for this trip report!!! Zepplin looks incredible. I love the white and blue as it sits on the lagoon. The park itself looks really nice. Can't wait to visit. I will have to plan a trip out that way.

Looks fantastic. I can't believe this is a TOTALLY new theme park, going will be a completely different experience than other parks.

Which coaster was renamed for the Eagles?

EDIT* Nevermind, figured it out.

One thing though. Being in Myrtle Beach, this Park is going to be PACKED all the time! There probably wont be a good day to go the whole opening season without having to wait at least 45 minutes to ride one of the coasters.

Can I park my donkey here?

May 9th.

Led Zep looks awsome! It towers over the other rides.

And about the name change. The logo looks cool, but I'm still not a fan of the name.

Man I've got to go to this park sometime! :br

But why ar you not telling this to us.
Because there are 2 Vekoma coasters in the park.
One is a minetrain and one is a junior coaster.
