No deal reached for purchase of Freestyle Music Park
HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – As of Monday, a local church group will not be the new owners of the vacant Freestyle Music Park. According to Christ United Methodist Church, Mother's Day was the deadline to buy the land.
Abiding Village, the church's non-profit group, says the group will still move forward with its plans to grow, even though for now, those plans will not include taking over the empty park next to them.
Three weeks ago, Abiding Village announced they were given the opportunity to buy Freestyle Music Park for $10 million. The group reported this was at a fraction of the property's actual $180 million value. According to Abiding Village, the park's owners only gave them until Mother's Day to come up with the money.
Abiding Village announced it would use the park's space to roll out its plans for expansion, which called for an arts and education center, and a business center.
As of Monday, the deal is a no go. The group reports it came out more than $9.8 million short. Leaders with Christ United say the opportunity in itself has given the church a boost.
"We are extremely thankful for the way that the vision for Abiding Village and the ministry that's already been there for the last five years and where its headed, the attention that has been drawn to that, has been priceless. So we're deeply grateful," said Christ United Pastor Jeff Dunn.
Dunn says as of Monday, the church cannot comment on current dealings with the owners of Freestyle Music Park. Dunn could only confirm the possible $10 million deal to buy the vacant park fell through.

So if God told her this would happen, does this mean that God lied to her? Perhaps she misinterpreted what God told her? Perhaps God misinterpreted the time crunch. Perhaps she should have put her faith in Kickstarter instead of God?
No one should be surprised by the outcome of this insane thought... I'm really just hoping at this point that Maximum R.P.M. gets a new home (and the extended track layout that was planned for an eventual upgrade for Hard Rock Park). That is the one ride that actually took me by surprise during my visit to the park... Everything else was just ok.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
