Of course Myrtle Beach can sustain a park--just not (apparently) an expensive one. But the Pavillion did okay. So, logically, if a new owner buys the park for much less than it cost to build, they don't need to charge as much and/or have as many visitors to make a profit.

I brought it...

So all the local folks at the beach can proudly say "I can see russia (well a russian own theme park) from my house!"
"B&M will NEVER build a coaster over 300 ft..." until 2012
"Cedar Fair will NEVER build a coaster taller than MF..." until 2015

Living down here for the last 3 years I completely agree. I love the park just because it is my home park. But if they dont have low prices then they wont get any business. And when i worked at family kingdom and at some hotels nobody had even heard of the park and I would tell them about it. It needs to be better advertised like on all the signs for hard rock park put where it is. I mean if you are on 95 going north you see hard rock park signs but it never said where it was. So tourists didnt know where to look.

Hey, if they keep the music theme, they can make a Dragonforce themed ride with fire! :)

OK, my mind is wandering, but if the guys who bought the park gave the place more potential, this can be an awesome place to go.

There really was no justification in charging as much as they did for admission. If it were around $30, then I could see it.

Hopefully this will be give the park a second chance, I always had a feeling somebody would buy it. It's too neat of a package to pass up. Somebody's smart enough to shape it (and its image) up.

I hope this works too, but I don't think they should rush to open it this season.

^ I agree. They should plan a new theme & maybe add a new coaster so the public would get interested in it again. Also they should do a lot more advertising for 2010 & maybe that park will get those big crowds they anticipated last season but didn't get.

If they could do just one thing the same, keep Nights in White Satin as is, I will be thrilled! They could make any other changes they want :)

I suppose that means that this discredits the ideas of a HRP coaster going to SFA or Carowinds :b

^ I was thinking the same thing. No HRP credits for those parks I guess.
