hmm....Six Flags Great America???? Since Chang if off the agenda it does make one wonder if they might take a stab at this if the ride does go up for auction.

Wondering if ALL the rides were sold, could they even get to $14M? Kinda doubtful in this (rides) market...

Maybe it was just me. But, it felt slightly used when I rode it in June of 2008. A bit rough. It was the first brand new installation of a B&M that ever left me feeling disappointed.

I would just move the coasters (or most of them, depending what can fit) down to the old Pavilion site, but that's just me. ;) Then maybe Gonch and I can have our own slightly scaled down Hard Rock-ish park again. ;)

Seriously, I always knew location was the main problem, among other things. Hopefully the next amusement park they decide to put near Myrtle Beach will actually be ON the beach, close to the action.

Even though I absolutely fell in lust with the HRP and had the time of my life, I was worried at the fact that it was so far from the beach, and why it was so dead on a Saturday in July when Family Kingdom was PACKED. I should of known it was going to be in trouble within a month or so. It's all about the location!

I loved that B&M! :)

Unfortunately, you and I were apparently the only ones.

Well, that's what happens when you build a theme park and open it right after the economic collapse, and then forget to market it.

To borrow from Field of Dreams and The Underpants Gnomes (since they know all about business):

Step 1: Build it

Step 2: ???

Step 3: They will come

The only problem with "on the beach" is that the real estate is a *lot* more expensive there, so it's hard to make a land-hungry enterprise like a park work out financially.
