I actually do think the "Kids in America" name fits the kids land better.

At least that's something.

It should also be known that the new dark ride that will replace Nights in White Satin will be known as Monstars of Rock. The ride description is as follows:
This dark ride weaves between reality and illusion with an onboard audio track that spill out ghoulish tunes. Masterfully blending sights, sounds, smells and techniques, riders of all ages are immersed in one of the park coolest (and spookiest) rides.

While I'm still on the fence about the park itself (I don't really understand adding CSI: Live to a music themed park), it does seem like they are getting their act together. That being said, I think it is still cutting things far too close to the opening to be releasing all of this information to such a limited audience.

I really wonder what would have happened if they pushed back the opening even a month later, giving them a little less reason to rush...

Also on the Discover Myrtle Beach website is this helpful link: http://www.discovermyrtlebeach.com/free ... /hours.cfm

Which finally reveals their planned hours of operation. Looks like they will only be open in the afternoon for the first two weeks excluding weekends.

They also have the list of what you get when you buy an annual pass, which costs 65 dollars roughly. But hey, complimentary parking is always nice. As is 10% off merchandise and food and beverage excluding alcohol. Which I'm sure plenty of parents are gonna need if they take their kids to FMP. There's a reason Chuck E Cheese sells beer...

The new names are much better than I expected. Although I'm not a big fan of the Myrtle Beach themed area, but this park IS in Myrtle Beach so I'm not gonna complain too much.

HRP Creative Services filed suit against FMP saying they didn't do enough to distinguish themselves. What Bull once again. They want to threaten the park's opening. Bull.

With that kind of vibe I'm still planning my get in and get out move.

Robb I was able to look back on your Photo TR. Was the Ice House an original part of the old outlet mall/entertainment center that converted into the park's new use for the Country Ice Show?

Well, thats just stupid. What is FMP supposed to do with the existing theme that HRP built? Yes, it looks like you are in a music themed park but we are calling it Tropical Land/Jungle Land (or something generic like that).

Yeah I am not sure what HRP Creative wants Freestyle to do besides tear down all the buildings and rides and re-build them from scratch. Plus how can they claim they own the designs to rides? Don't the manufactures own that? They must really want money any way they can get it.

^Hard to say without knowing all the legal history here. But this does look like an attempt to squeeze more money out of the new owners by threatening a suit and settling at the 11th hour.

We shall see.
