Maximum RPM open at Hard Rock Park
Hard Rock Park, in Myrtle Bach, South Carolina, sends word that Maximum RPM!
, its sports car-themed Premier Rides coaster has now opened.
The coaster, with its distinctive Ferris Wheel lift, had remained closed during the park's opening weeks. With its debut, all of the park's initially announced rides are now open.
Has the ferris wheel loading, or a similarly odd mechanism, ever been used before?
Actually that's not entirely true, Robert. There was supposed to be a bumper car attraction that didn't make it in "phase one" of the park.
My brain is in vapor-lock today, and I just couldn't phrase that right. I meant, everything that was supposed to be open after the preview is now open.
I read the guidlines for writers and didn't see anything about providing a link to another site, so if this is not allowed please edit or delete this comment.
Forgive me if I've missed it in any of the press materials or previous discussions, but what exactly is the point/benefit of the ferris wheel-style lift? It seems like it would wreak havoc on the ride's hourly capacity, and apart from the fact that the wheel revolves, I can't find any kind of thematic relation.
