    Hard Rock theme park floats Led Zep roller coaster

    Zeppelin: Artist's rendering of the roller coaster
    and the Hard Rock theme park in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

    By Gene Sloan, USA TODAY

    First Aerosmith gets its own theme-park ride. Now Led Zeppelin. The creators of the Hard Rock theme park, under construction in Myrtle Beach, S.C., will announce details today of the park's signature ride: a 150-foot-tall steel roller coaster with a Led Zeppelin theme. The looping attraction is one of more than 40 rock 'n' roll-themed amusements planned for the 140-acre theme park. It's scheduled to open in spring 2008.

    The park, built by private investors under license from Hard Rock International, which operates 123 Hard Rock Cafes and eight Hard Rock Hotels, is the first major new park planned for the USA in nearly a decade. As on the Aerosmith coaster, which made its debut in 1999 at the Disney-MGM Studios park near Orlando, riders on Zeppelin will experience a musical immersion from speakers.

    "Led Zeppelin are the icons of hard-rock music," says the park's CEO, Steven Goodwin. "Parents and kids alike can relate to the band's music."

    Cool! I really want to check this park out when it opens. About time we finally have something solely based on Rock & Roll.

    That is the coolest thing I've heard today! I love Led Zeppelin...and I think the combination of rock and...um, roller coasters is a great one. Can't wait.

    B&M has already a Roller Coaster in Japan at Universal Studios Osaka with an audio system .

    I don't know if the audio system wils resist to the B&M like it is for Vekoma or Intamin on Scramin .

    Re: Hard Rock theme park floats Led Zep roller coaster

    I'm interested in seeing how this park is after it opens but I still believe it'll be nothing more than a six flags park. I've seen nothing to make me think it'll be anymore than a good regional attraction. I'd love for it to be more, but I'll just wait and see.

    I'm up for Universal wrangling this attraction from Hard Rock (they have the hotel on site so there is at least a loose connection) to insert into IOA someday if it works well enough.
