$400 million for that place? It's probably going to fail within 15 years anyway. Just seems way too ambitious. The concept doesn't even seem too brilliant.

I'll give them credit though. Still think it will fail.

I'm guessing the Ohio Players weren't available?

I won tickets to see Classic Albums Live at the Hard Rock Live in Orlando yesterday morning by doing my best Robert Plant impression. The grand prize they're giving away is a trip to opening weekend.

/I apologize to anyone listening yesterday morning at about 7:30

They'd probably get more ridership if they named it the Not the Fat Wilson Sister the Cute Blonde One From Heart Roller-Coaster.

FTFA: Lead singer Robert Plant shrieks, "Woman. You need. Loooooooove..." And as he does, riders scream as the car falls from a height of 155 feet, reaching speeds of 65 mph.

65 mph isn't much (it's the sweet spot IMHO). It'd be the 155-ft drop that'd get me.

I think that place sounds farking great. I'd even endure South Carolina for that.

Don't forget to go to the theater and see puppet show and Spinal Tap
 
2008-05-07 02:33:52 PM

People still go to amusement parks? What's the matter, don't they have the internet?
 
2008-05-07 02:34:44 PM  
Call me when they build a Misfits ride.
 
2008-05-07 02:34:52 PM  
Oh man, it's being opened with concerts by The Eagles and The Moody Blues. That's just so out of control, balls to the wall rock and roll I can't even contain myself!

Wanna whole lotta love?
Wanna whole lotta love?
Wanna whole lotta love?
Wanna whole lotta love?

Way down inside, woman,
You need love.


Oh, no...my snowflake is gunna be traumatized by that song!
 
2008-05-07 02:38:24 PM  
Talk about attention to detail! If you get sick on the ride, you automatically choke on it and die, after which they shut the coaster down for 20 years, then reopen it in a slightly slower, much less impressive version.
 
2008-05-07 02:38:40 PM  
Oooooooooo.............suck it.

Shake for me, girl.

"Visitors can see swimmers and divers perform in a show called "Malibu Beach Party," play arcade games such as Whack-A-Boys-Band - similar to Whac-a-Mole "

That made me larf.

Will they have a Keith Richards shooting gallery?
 
2008-05-07 02:40:46 PM  
Hard Rock is now owned by the Seminole Indian tribe out of Florida. I just read an article in Penthouse about them. They are a bunch of losers.

Raging Thespian: Won't top the Rockin' Rollercoaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Only problem with the Rockin' Rollercoaster is they won't sell you your picture if you're doing the shocker. Other than that, it's perfect.
 
2008-05-07 02:43:46 PM  
The 'life in the fast lane' ride should have monitors displaying the devastating effects of cocaine abuse.
 
2008-05-07 02:44:20 PM  
Cleaning up the park will be the surviving members of Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, and Dokken.
 
2008-05-07 02:44:46 PM  
Don't go on 'Bon Scott's wild ride'.

In other news, that song is almost forty years old.

I don't listen to rock music so I have no idea if you are being sarcastic or not.

I call shenanigans. No one reads Penthouse for the articles.

How about a Metalli-coaster?

You should hold your breath and wait for that to happen.

And Much beers.

You mean start really great and successful, then sue the amusement park and the people on the ride without foresight of the consequences of said lawsuit, thus shutting down the ride, park, and all relevance in their chosen industry before spiralling into a life of D list celebrity playing Bar Mitzvahs, County Fairs and Mall Openings for the rest of their collective careers?
 
2008-05-07 03:15:06 PM  
And an Auqulung ride.
With leering pedophiles and vision impaired girls.
And drugs .
