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.
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.
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 movie.....lol.
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.
