^ 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.

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.
No. 1 Water Park guy! The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)
