During this three-week “rehearsal,” visitors will become a part of rock history as they get to check out the world’s first rock ‘n’ roll theme park has it springs into life.
All of the Park’s rock environs are going to be open for “Sound Check,” which will run daily from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. “This is it! The Park is finally coming to life,” said Steven Goodwin, Hard Rock Park’s CEO. “Visitors will be able to ride Led Zeppelin – The Ride, watch Malibu Beach Party and then have dinner at A Taste of Paradise… and all that’s just in Rock & Roll Heaven!”
Admission for “Sound Check” will be $40 for rockers of all ages* and will include a $10 meal voucher that can be used at any of the restaurant locations in the Park**. “Our restaurants are all unique and are a part of the whole entertainment experience, said Dale Kaetzel, general manager. “We’re encouraging everyone to get a taste of the Park during Sound Check.”
