Horry County wary of issuing bonds for Hard Rock park without more information

Posted Wednesday, January 26, 2005 10:04 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Horry County Council members say more needs to be known about the Hard Rock theme park at Fantasy Harbour before they provide $25 million to $30 million in bonds for the private project, and some say those discussions should be public. Developers are asking the county to fill a 10 percent investment shortfall for the $250 million to $300 million project and offered Monday to meet behind closed doors to talk over details.

I hope that they can come to an understanding on this one, and that the park does go thru. Along with it's 2 seaside parks, Myrtle really does need a major Theme Park that can grow into something of an IoA type of resort, with a citywalk type of experience, hotels, resturaunts, etc.

I hope the project can go forward.

I was wondering what had happened to this project. It had been a while since any news had come out. I am glad to hear things seem to be moving in the right direction. Myrtle Beach needs this, and i don't say it simply because I love parks, but the last time I was there a few years ago, it was a pretty boring time for me. It always just seemed so much more could be done on the entertainment side, because personally, baking myself under the sun is not a good time, I need more to do!*** This post was edited by Chadley 1/26/2005 6:06:27 PM ***

MOTLEY CRUE THE RIDE! Take a ride on the wild side! This could be the best themed park on the planet if they do it right! I nominate GWAR for their mascots!

I just hope everything comes together for them! \m/ (-_-) \m/*** This post was edited by coasterpunk 1/26/2005 11:31:04 PM ***

Heh, coasterpunk, our little fantasy threads come to life. :)

Speaking of which, the early rumor going around is that Tommy Lee is finally doing the "roller coaster" drum solo on this tour (fits the circus/carnival theme, at least) - so we'll see how that one pans out.

Roller coaster drum solo? Do I even want to know?

And do you really think they'd put in GWAR? Family Park...;)

I know now, I just gotta get to see the Crue in Philly in early March! Today I need to settle for GWAR and Alabama Thunderpussy in Reading though!

I just wonder. If Tommy Lee does a roller coaster thing with the drums if I could ride it would it count for my track record? \m/

So Gonch, or Tina, did you get the Motley Crue figures yet? If not what the f are you waiting for?

\m/ (-_-) \m/ funny it looks more like Strong Sad then a metalhead. :) "I don't like food anymore!" :)

Obviously, the council first needs to make sure that they really have the other 90% of the financing locked up. Then they need to check out the business models to make sure that they are realistic. They don't want to invest in Enron.
