In September 2002, Jon Binkowski and Steven Goodwin were in Los Angeles, trying to pitch their idea for a Myrtle Beach theme park to movie studios, when they got a call from Hard Rock International.

Very interesting. One of the more well-researched and written amusement park articles I've read. Sounds like a couple guys just really got in over their heads. What a shame. I would have loved to visit it one day. (Who knows, if PARC takes it over, I may just yet -- but it won't be Hard Rock, if that happens.)
