OK, I was looking at the pics of the model of Midnight Rider and I am confused. It's a mine train, OK, but from the looks of it, it is either a dueling mine train or it has a second lift or launch inside the building?

WTF?

I'm hoping for the second lift/launch idea myself... if those are two separate tracks, they're REALLY short.

It's just one of those kiddie Vekoma rollerskater things.

It's a near clone of the Calamity Mine at Walibi Belgium so it's a 2nd lift which is right beside the 1st lift.

I just checked Screamscape and I heard that the last track piece on Led Zeppelin was installed last Thursday. Also, a crane working on Midnight Rider fell on to one of the track pieces pushing the opening day farther. More soon!

The Official "Hard Rock Park" Update Thread

Postby htomc42 » Thu Sep 20, 2007 7:40 pm

I was down at Myrtle Beach a couple of weeks ago, and went by the Hard Rock Park preview center. I also got some pics of the actual coaster, under construction! The local news said that it is going very smoothly, and is ahead of schedule.

There's still major construction going on, but the park should be open for the 2008 season. Give me a call anytime someone wants to go to this park, I missed the first Deep South tour!

Yes, its the real bus from the movie!

Sand sculpture. They're really going all-out on this park, even though its nowhere near as big as Disney. Major $$$ going into this.

Side view. This is the best picture that I could take through the plexiglass case.

Different areas of the preview center mirror the different zones in the park, which include hard rock, country, 60s/70s, British invasion, and more.

British invasion section. I'm not sure if that is the Austin Powers car.

I wonder what a punk-themed coaster would be like?

Another angle. They will have several coasters, and a dark ride.

Looking the other way, showing the entire ride so-far constructed, including the loading platform. The big Zeppelin cover hasn't been put on it yet.

wow dude this is a sweet report Led Zepplin looks like it will be one of the best new coasters for 2008! I love how this park is looking, will most definitely hit this as soon as I can either next year or in 2009!

I envision a good, classic punk song on a ride that is something like Son of Beast, T2, and Furious Baco rolled into one so that you get the simulation of the hundreds of idiots around you at a punk concert that think moshing is cool.

Great TR though! I love those pics alongside Led Zeppelin, and the sand sculpture is impressive. I'm really amped about this place. I can't wait to visit next August.

Nice report. I'm not exactly a music buff, but the previews and now this report are getting me pretty psyched about the park. :b
