Freestyle Music Park, the former Hard Rock Park in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, has renamed and re-themed the rollercoaster formerly known as Led Zeppelin – The Ride. The B&M-built attraction (pictured) will now be known as The Time Machine.
Towering more than 150ft into the sky, the looping, steel coaster features a high fidelity, on-board audio system playing music from the 1960s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s or 21st Century. The 3,738ft-long ride is the tallest and fastest coaster in the Carolinas and offers a total of six inversions.
“We are excited to unveil The Time Machine,” says John Stine, director of marketing and sales for Freestyle Music Park. “The enhancements we have made, including adding five different audio tracks, will allow our guests to enjoy a totally different musical experience through time with each journey.”
Freestyle Music Park has also unveiled a new children’s area, Kids In America, as it aims to increase its appeal to family groups. The 17,000 sq ft new area features four new Zamperla rides, including Get Off Of My Cloud (Samba Tower), Fly Like An Eagle (Kite Flyer), Wheels In The Sky (Magic Bike) and Life Is A Highway (Convoy).
There are also plans to add a rollercoaster, a performance venue featuring a themed show, play area and basketball court as part of Kids in America, in addition to relocating a climbing wall, jungle gym, train ride and other attractions from the park’s former children’s area.
