Hard Rock Park gets national promotion

Posted Monday, April 9, 2007 10:17 AM | Contributed by thrillerman1

The Hard Rock Park will take the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour bus on a six-city tour promoting the theme park starting Monday in New York City. More details of the area's 140-acre park, scheduled to open in April 2008, are expected to be released Monday before a memorabilia donation that will take place at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City's Time Square.

This will be at the HR in NYC tonight and I believe Cleveland tomorrow. It should be cool to see the Magical Mystery Tour bus up close and personal. Hope it comes a little further south. ;) I wonder if they'll be handing out any park promo freebies.

Hard Rock is in a good place for nation-wide promotion. Major cities already have the Hard Rock Cafe chain, so selling a park as a destination shouldn't be that hard. Then again, it depends on the attractions in said park...

Perhaps, but does anyone who lives in a city with a Hard Rock actually go to the restaurant? I went to the one in Cleveland years ago, and only because I was already downtown for some reason.

I think the cafes are definitely considered more touristy spots than local watering holes. I usually enjoy visiting them when I'm out of town, but don't make it a point to visit the one in my hometown.

We visit the Hard Rock Cafe here in Pittsburgh once every year or two. It's too expensive to visit regularly, but a nice change of pace when we're out playing tourist in our own city occasionally.

The Hard rock Cafe in detroit is always buisy, but it is also very small as well. They are looking to expand it though.

What types of rides/ attractions is this park going to have? I have not heard much info on this park other than there is a lot of work to be done yet.

Well it ain't called "Detroit Rock City" for nothing I guess. ;)

While I have not seen an official ride listing, the official manufacturer's list has been announced: HRP Ride Manufacturers

The closest Hard Rock for me is in Boston. I just went there to grab a shirt one day. Cool shirt though.

I want to open a Soft Rock Cafe myself. Perhaps I could con Air Supply out of the last few hundred thousand dollars they have left. ;)

I want to open the Cafe 80s...you know, from Back to the Future 2. :)

Yeah, HRC is definitely a touristy thing. There aren't any close to Des Moines. Even if there was one conveniently located, I would have little desire to go there unless it had something on the menu that I REALLY enjoyed. They have decent food, but it's nothing I get a craving for like Arby's or Pizzeria Uno's. :) Still they are always fun to visit when you come across a new one.
