I work about 3/4 of a mile from Hard Rock Park but I’ve never been there. However, this dude who lives in England has been and posted a review of it that I found via Largehearted Boy. He seemed to generally like it. It’s one of those things I feel like I should go to, but mostly the price structure has kept me away. As the prices for locals keep dropping, at some point it will cross my buy line and then I’ll go.
The idea seems, by being so worshipful of rock and roll, to be the exact opposite of rock. I tend to think of it like those anarchy symbol shirts that I seen kids buying from Hot Topic. The way you make your statement completely cuts the legs out from the meaning of it. The saving grace would be if the goal of Hard Rock Park is to celebrate modern day mainstream rock by presenting something overpriced and bloated, which I would actually like if that was their intention. Here in Myrtle Beach they constantly run TV commercials for the park with people behaving in superficially “rocking” douchebag behavior as a selling point. Yeah.
One of these days I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and try the place out. We’ll see how it holds up to my diminished expectations.
