Almost worse than Christian rock

Rock and roll has everything else. Why not a theme park? That’s the thinking of the people behind Hard Rock Park in South Carolina, where you can ride the “Eagles Life in the Fast Lane” rollercoaster or “Led Zeppelin – The Ride” (mudshark optional, ladies.)

"Today is truly a momentous day in the evolution of rock and family vacations," said Steven Goodwin, CEO of Hard Rock Park. "Just like the music itself, Hard Rock Park is all about the experience and every visitor that walks through these gates from today on will walk out a rock star in their own right."

(As Hendrix would have said: “’scuse me while I kill this guy”.)

The celebration will conclude with the Hard Rock Park Grand Opening Extravaganza on June 2nd and 3rd. Kicking off the final weekend will be the Eagles on June 2 and then on June 3 renowned British rock band, The Moody Blues, will commemorate the official opening of the park's psychedelic, Moody Blues-inspired dark ride, “Nights in White Satin − The Trip”, followed by an exclusive live performance.

And you thought theme park rides were meant to be vomit-inducing, not the concept itself. Take a ride on the wild side here.
