Theme Park Insider reader Mike Duchock checks in with a couple photos from Hard Rock Park's opening ceremony last Friday: (His photos follow)
After a few weeks of the "sound check" soft opening HRP in Myrtle Beach officially opened its doors for full operations last Friday, May 9th. Some morning rain showers ended just in time for a short ceremony celebrating this momentous occasion. Horry County Council Chairwoman Liz Gilland and South Carolina governor Mark Sanford's wife and son joined HRP CEO Steven Goodwin for a guitar smashing and to officially open the gates. The new $400 million theme park will celebrate its grand opening June 2nd - 3rd.

See you from Orlando Tuesday night....
