So I'm guessing this was before the park closed its offices and laid-off all staff?

^This was around the time Freestyle Music Park opened for its first season (Hard Rock Park's second season, if you look at it that way).

I really hope this park opens back up! I am going to Myrtle over spring break. I'm still hopeful. I mean it would be really sad to see it just stay closed, it's such a nice park!

^I wouldn't get your hopes up for Spring Break. I'm pretty sure there was an article out that even if the park got the funding and/or new owners it would take at least six weeks from that going through to get the park open.

I wish The Time Machine could tell us the future, but I think Robb the fortune teller has been more realistic.

"There are currently no plans to reopen for 2010..."

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- An attorney representing Freestyle Amusement Park on the South Carolina coast said Monday the operators of the park have no current plans to reopen this summer.

"There are currently no plans to reopen for 2010, however they are in negotiations still with several investors and that's subject to change if something were to happen with the investors," said attorney David Slough.

The financially troubled park in Myrtle Beach was to have reopened earlier this month. Last month, Freestyle closed its business offices and laid off about 30 workers.

The telephone number for the park Monday only played a recording that the park was closed. No operator was available.

Freestyle opened last Memorial Day weekend after buying Hard Rock Park out of bankruptcy and reworking some of the rides and themes.

The 55-acre Hard Rock opened in 2008, but closed after a single season. The $400 million park was the biggest single investment in South Carolina tourism.

Freestyle Amusement Park faces a Thursday deadline to pay off a $570,000 debt it inherited when it bought Hard Rock.

"They are working to resolve all payment obligations," Slough said. He said he did not know if the money was in hand to pay the debt by Thursday's deadline.

It's not clear how long the park could wait to reopen this season if investors were to bring in a new infusion of money. Last year, it took about six weeks to get the park up and operating.

"I don't know what they would have to do to get the rides operational again," Slough said.

Freestyle Amusement Park remade some of the Hard Rock Rides - rides that featured a Led Zeppelin roller coaster and a dark ride based on the Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin" - to create a more family friendly atmosphere. It added reggae, country, Christian and disco music to the rock mix.
