Just into the DoD3 newsroom today (aka myself leaching off other sites) Hard Rock Park is up for sale! As many theme park lovers know, the just opened in 2008 amusement park filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy back in September. Instead of sorting things out and planning on what to better in the upcoming season, officials instead said “funk dat!” and put the whole joint up for sale. The park apparently cost $400 million to construct, an amazing feat considering the park had…uh…um…well they had that Led Zeppelin coaster! Oh I get it now! $300 million went to the licensing fees to name it Led Zeppelin! There we go, it’s crystal clear now!
For the most part, mourning of Hard Rock Park’s potential demise is heard most from the credit whores of internet coasterdom who were deprived of adding to their coaster count. Another portion of the coaster loving population almost gave a damn, the third portion forgot or never knew that Hard Rock Park had even opened in the first place and the final portion will only remember the park for Led Zeppelin: The Ride and their Magic Mushroom themed Huss Magic.
Rock is dead in once sense I guess…
