Published: June 16, 2008 at 2:17 PMActually 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.
Glad they got the kinks worked out of RPM. We'll check it out this weekend.

Hard Rock Park Blog has a review of the ride with pictures and video. http://hardrockparkblog.com/
Published: June 18, 2008 at 7:55 AMForgive 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.
