Zeppelin Ride closes

Recommended Posts

From today's Wall Street Journal

Hard Rock Park, a 140-acre theme park in Myrtle Beach SC, opened with great fafare last April, hoping to lure tourists with a penchant for roller coasters and Led Zeppelin. Now, though, despite four years in development and two years in construction, the $400 million attraction is unplugging just nine months after opneing.

Yesterday a Delaware bankrucptcy judge approved the company's request to begin liquidating what was billed as the world's first rock 'n' roll theme park and the single largest tourism investment in South Carolina history.

The Parks's marquee attraction was Led Zeppelin's The Ride, a state of the art corkscrew roller coaster developed in conjunction with members of the legendary foursome

Maybe if we all pool our money we can buy it! :D

Absolutely! Let's do it. But just one thing...where will we keep it?

Maybe that's a sign (the ride is shutting down).... so, maybe the band have "really" officially called it a day(never to return for anymore one-offs).... as JP turns 65, we'll see...

Not really - I've seen the three members play together several times, and at least 3 times under the banner "Led Zeppelin". Can't have it both ways.

This is typical. Walt Disney wouldn't cower behind a ticket booth and give up so easily like these assholes!

Anything for auction at this point? How about the Hermit statue? I'd love to have that in my garden.

(and that ZoSo sign would look great on my front door...)
