^I'm honestly surprised they hadn't already. Seems like a perfect fit for the park, especially with its small footprint as it is now.

Maybe if the timing works out and they get a huge boost in attendance/profit from the two new coasters, they will be able to. My only non-launched Premier coaster was Runaway Mountain at SFOT and that actually has a little bit of a kick to it, so I would be all for having one in Orlando.

cfc wrote concerning the Nights in White Satin dark ride - Maybe Fun Spot will take it.


That will be great if they took it; a dark ride would do wonders for Fun Spot. Unfortunately, the ride wouldn't be themed after the Moody Blues due to licensing cost. What I do like to see them do is make it a magical ride with illusions that would blow your mind and senses. Something that will make Walt Disney World say - :mickey: "Why didn't we think of that?"

<sigh> One can always dream. :|

NIWS is gone. Completely. It was gutted and rebuilt with a new theme for FMP. There would be nothing left of the dark ride to be relocated, plus it's built into a mall.

^Yep--they turned it into that wretched "Monsters of Rock" ride during the Freestyle Music Park days.

^ Not only that, but the rights to the re-recorded music scored for the ride were lost to someone when HRP went bankrupt.

So we'll never be able to hear the full music track legally ever again. I'm not quite sure of the legalities of it, but legally SallyCorp cannot release it, beyond the partial use in their promotional video.

If you'd believe it, the company that controls the rights to all of the intellectual property created for Hard Rock Park (not the licensed attractions like Led Zeppelin or Moody Blues) is still operating today with the hope of selling their concepts to outside entities for integration into other parks.

I got to ride RPM ( and the rest of the coasters) right before the park closed and I will say that RPM was definitely one of the most interesting Premeirs out there. The Ferris wheel lift was a little unnerving though. I hope they relocate it too just because it is the only one of its kind in the world.

I wonder if any park chains are interested in buying the property?
Six Flags could maybe add in a Batman clone and a few flats and get this park running again.
I hope Led Zeppelin and Maximum RPM get relocated at the least. SFSTL could really use them. :p
