I'm still pretty anxious to hear or see any details on what the queue and station buildings will be like from the inside. If the same folks who worked on IOA are involved, I can only imagine something pretty sweet to rock out to while in line.
And let's hope the amps are cranked up to 11.

Ok so today i went to the Hard Rock park Backstage tour preview. They had a concert with a few thousand people, it was pretty sweet and i had a good time. And the preview center left me with the impression that they are gonna do a fantastic job with this park. They even themed the preview center very well, with a lot of rock memorabilia... mount rockmore, the led zeppelin statue(the hermit is what they called it) the car that austin powers drives dont know what its called, and the beetles magical mystery tour bus and much more.
They had a model of the park and everything looked better than on the concept art, I asked around and found out a lot of good info about the park.
No new info about Led Zeppelin the ride, they just had some zeppelin memorabile. And that the loading station will be inside a zeppelin blimp, the que station will also be very big so probably some good theming.
Slippery when wet - that is the name of the green looking ride in the middle of the park, it is suspended swinging ride with watter. Like ones we have seen before.
Maximum RPM - its the launched ride, (the red one on the concept art) according to the info guys at the preview center, Its going to launch through a ferris wheel, and will be mostly close to the ground and short but should be pretty fun.
Then there is the kid coaster, nothing too exciting.
And Midnight rider which looks like it is 2 separate mine train tracks. Probably by vekoma, but i'm not positive.
Also the dark ride will be in the back of the park and incorporated into the pre-existing buildings that were a part of the outlet mall. They aren't releasing the name of the ride yet, but they said it will be a 60's 70's theme and will rely on lots of black light effects. There is much more i just cant think of all of it right now.
I didn't get any pictures yet, but when i do i will put them on. But it looks pretty sweet, and living a short walk away i'm going to love having it here.
I moved to South Carolina this year and what a good choice that was! I'm really interested to see how the Premier coaster in the British section is going to turn out. That ferris wheel lift looks crazy, that's just so cool.
Thanks for the pictures, i only had 10 minutes to get through the preview center cause i showed up as they were closing. So its nice to go through the pictures and actually get a good look at what things look like.
I was really confused about the premier ride, i asked them what it did and they told me it launched through a seperate ferris wheel ride. I didnt think it looked right, and i guess it isnt. Im glad he was wrong, that ride sounds pretty unique and sweet now.
