The park looks great. I agree that the Hard Rock brand is a very good one for a theme park. Music works as a fantastic tie in with coasters.

and now, a last minute name change:


HARD ROCK PARK ANNOUNCES "Eagles - Life in the Fast Lane"

Midnight Rider Coaster has been Renamed

"Eagles band members, Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, have gone back into the studio to re-record their famed smash hit, turning it into a one-of-kind version exclusively for the new ride.

" Vekoma Rides Manufacturing, one of the largest roller coaster manufacturers in the world, is designing and engineering the ride together with its US alliance partner Chance-Morgan.

" A two-minute-long journey - the longest coaster ride at the Park

" Features a double lift with Lift heights of 39 feet and 46 feet, respectively

" Each train holds 22-24 people (4 coaches per train, 6 people per coach) and features an on-board, high-fidelity digital audio system to further enhance the ride experience.

" Total length of track is 2,234 feet

" Maximum speed: 50 KPH with hairpin turns that pull 2 G-Forces

Eagles - An American rock band formed in the early 1970's and composed of Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit. The band has won five GRAMMY® awards, most recently in February 2008 for "Best Country Performance by Duo or Group" for "How Long." The album Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) has gone platinum 29 times, making it the highest selling album in the United States by a rock group. The Eagles broke up in 1980, but reunited in 1994.

"Life in the Fast Lane," a song by the Eagles, was first featured on the chart-topping album Hotel California in 1976.


I don't know how well it fits the land, but I can't argue the choice of song.

I like the band, I like the song, but I don't think it fits the theme of that area of the park, nor do I think it works with a mine train. I would think of "Life in the Fast Lane" as being more like Rock'n'Roller Coaster, being a fast launched coaster with lots of twists and turns and inversions.

Of course, I still want to see the world's longest B&M flying coaster with audio themed to "Freebird" :lolr:
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.
