Rock and Roll Themed Amusement Park

Friday, March 12, 2004 12:13 AM
The other day I was thinking about how me and my family used to take a vacation to Opryland way back in the day and how it was themed to country music. Then, I thought how cool it would be to have a rock and roll themed amusement park what do yall think about that. I can just imagine a signature roller coaster named the Power Chord.

Only if they include a Judas Priest themed Musik Express.

That's horrid.

Um...They're in the deep stages of a Hard Rock theme park to go into Myrtle Beach, supposedly by '05. I know it was in the news here. Apparently the ball is still rolling.

Slide down Gene Simmons' tongue in the flume.

Get shot out a giant syringe in a launched coaster themed to heroin addiction.

Space shot: Get high just like the lead guitarist doing blow before the concert.

Restaraunts themed to the roudy after-show parties.

Antique car ride themed to the boring bus ride between concerts.

Man it's late, I gotta go to bed....... :)

LOL! Jeff. You live a hard life man, no wonder you need to go to bed! ;-)

I vote for the Gene Simmons Tongue Flume! :-P

One of the park's main hotels could have rooms that are themed after an actual musicians' room. The room will already be trashed with the mirrors broken and the TV's already on the ground below.

I think it would be cool to have areas that are themed to various eras of rock and roll, including the "Hair Metal" section of the park.

Poison: The Ride. :-O


<--------who got up too early again.

Actually Opryland did have a 1950's rock and roll themed area, "Do Wah Ditty City". It included the Rock n' Roller Coaster, better known now as Canyon Blaster at The Great Escape.

A new home for ShockWave? Rename it 'Highway to Hell, back in black and blue'.

The ride ops and vendors will be outfitted as groupies and roadies. The metal detectors at the front gates are now theme elements, just like the waiting in line for tickets. You have to buy tickets weeks in advance and they only sell enough to fill the park to standing room only on any given day. Park t-shirts will be sold out of the backs of vans in the parking lot. There will only be one restroom in the whole park.

The Hard Rock park that Clint mentioned, is slated to open at an initial cost of $500M....

As far as Judas Priest themed rides, how about a dark-ride themed to Rob Halford's closet? ;) (Who woulda guessed, ROFL)

bill, looking forward to the "Old Wave" Swinger and the *Carousel of Groupies*

LOL, I love the idea of the pre-thrashed hotel rooms and Halford´s closet (would it be better than Superstar Limo? What would we actually see, since Rob left the closet and never came back ?)

I have never seen it, but wasn´t "Wayne´s World" actually a Rock themed area at PKD and PKI, which didn´t last that long?

SOQUET to me!

I don't know about a whole area, but the Hurlers at PKD and Carowinds are slightly themed to Wayne's World.

The last time I was at either park there were flames on the side of the trains and various props at the stations. I can't really recall what these props were nor do I think it really had anything to do with the

Instead of having Bugs Bunny, Snoopy, and Garfield walking around greeting people you can have these guys . Although I still would like to visit Bucketheadland some day!

Nigloland has a 60's rock'n'roll themed area.

Features a nice Jukebox octopus ride.

Oh Boy Costerpunk, I had no idea that "GWAR" are still around. I wonder if the members are still the same people or if their kids are "GWAR!" now?! Funny but unlistenable.

SOQUET to me!

Well, remember Tina, it was in the 1800s sometime that Paramount first announced they were eliminating the Wayne's World theme....

Last I checked, that was still half-completed, and I am what you might call a Paramount fan (Danny of course is our club president, LMAO)...;)

Gwar and Buckethead - you exhibit excellent taste :)

Does Gwar still do anything? They've been around forever. The idea of little kids running up and hugging them and getting photos with them is hilarious.

Buckethead on the other hand just gives me nightmares. ;)

As mentioned, Opryland wasn't just themed towards country music.
They had several different themed areas, playing different kinds of music.

You right Goncher they have been around for a long time. Don't forget they were frozen in Antartica for thousands of years until the ozone layer got that hole and thawed out their crypt. They are still around they actually came out with a new album last year I think. The only ones I really liked were Scumdogs and Hell-o. I'd still like to see them live. Just be sure to wear old clothes.

I'd still love to see a Motorhead themed park. Any band who has been around for almost 30 years and can still rock harder than most bands half their age deserves at least a themed area. Just think Bomber, Killed by Death, Overkill, The Hammer, Orgasmatron,Dead Men Tell No Tales would make some pretty interesting rides.

An Iron Maiden park would be pretty sweet too. Aces High, Flight of Icarus, Tailgunner,Ryme of The Ancient Mariner,Running Free, I can see a those rides already. Not to mention Eddie would make such a great mascot for the park, Even better than Gwar! \m/

There was a ride at Myrtle Beach Pavillion that was a trabant/casino inside a tent. This ride featured loud music. Anyway one time when I rode it the operator played Motley Crue's Shout at the Devil and had the lights for the ride timed with the beat of the song.

For you younguns here Motley Crue was Tommy Lee's band in his pre amatuer porn with the ex-wife days.

"SHOUT, SHOUT, Shout at the devil" \m/

At Knoebels my one buddy got in trouble for playing Pantera in the Cosmotron.

Funny how this went from a rock theme park to a metal theme.

As for the metal detectors would they detect metalheads too?
