Freestyle Music Park gets sued by vendors for non-payment

Posted Friday, October 2, 2009 11:16 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Lawsuits against Freestyle Music Park for nonpayment are starting to stack up, with two more filed this week. A two-man band filed a $9,450 lawsuit Wednesday for unpaid performances, while Thomas Supply Co. of Myrtle Beach filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the park for $3,997.40 in unpaid supplies. Freestyle officials are tight-lipped about the financial situation of the park, but say they're good for coming up with the money.

Here we go again. So how many people will be able to brag, in relatively short order, that they once went to both HRP and FMP?

If they were good for it, then whats the hold-up? It's one thing to owe hundreds of thousands of dollars, but these little guys with $3000 here and $5000 there can give you a black-eye really fast.

My guess is by February of next year. Of course, the park will close much sooner, but it won't be "official" that the park is going away until then, and maybe later. This just seems like one of those things that will be forever doomed to failure for whatever unlucky sod goes for it next until someone finally decides to kill it off.

I'm having a hard time believing they couldn't make money on the place given the "paltry sum" of $25M invested in the place. Seemed busy enough when we were there, at least 2,000 - 2,500 people in the park. If it goes on the market again, we should collectively buy the place so we could A) sell the Beemer and, B) burn down the dark ride.... ;)

I mean, seriously, is Tony Soprano getting a cut of the proceeds?

What!? You mean removing everything unique and adding four new kiddies rides didn't draw ridiculous crowds and bring it boatloads of cash?

Where have I head that before? ;)

Yeah, but when you're forced to give tickets away for $9 to get those people there...well, you get sued for non-payment.
