Led Zeppelin may very well be the most impressive looking forgettable B&M I've been on. The ride has lots going for it - two vertical loops, straight drop, great setting in front of the water, and it was just dull and forgettable. Not to mention a little rattly and a bit rough.

I'm actually just fine with it going to Vietnam because if it went to a park in the states that means it would take the place of said park potentially getting a better ride.

I've gone pantless!

I agree. At least the Vietnamese will (probably) not have to suffer through that pre-show. ;)

I really enjoyed the pre-show (probably because I really like LZ), but I did not enjoy it in 100 degree weather the day we visited. But dozens of rides on Nights in White Satin made up for that. Damn I miss that ride.

^ I actually didn't mind the pre-show itself, but what I minded was sitting through a (what seemed like) 10 minute pre-show while they were cycling empty trains because NO ONE was at the park, and we were made to watch the pre-show EVERY TIME we rode. Yeah, no thanks.

Nights in White Satin was the best ride there.

I've heard from more than a few people that "Nights" was a great ride.

I'm bummed I never got to try Nights in White Satin. :cry: I wish they were able to salvage that ride and put it somewhere else, even if it's Vietnam or Darien Lake. The name of this thread should be changed to the Hard Rock / Freestyle Music Park Demolition Thread btw. ;)

I'm glad that I didn't visit this park. Once I saw the video and photo trip report that Robb posted when they visited it, I felt like that was enough for me. There are far better parks to waste time at and I'm glad that I have those hours of my life that I didn't visit this park. True, some of the rides looked "interesting" but nothing that looked like anything to write home about (except the Moody Blues dark ride.)

Too bad a really bad hurricane didn't blow through that area this year and just blow the buildings down...that would have helped the demolition progress!
