Over the last few weeks many have noticed that the roller coasters of the former Hard Rock Park and Freestyle Music Park have been being dismantled one by one. This has led to much speculation about where they will ultimately end up. According to The State, their final location is possibly somewhere in Vietnam. Intermark Ride Group of Nashville, Tennessee has been tasked with the transportation of the rides from the former South Carolina park. The owner of the company, Gina Guglielmi stated, "All I've heard is they've been sold and are headed to Vietnam."
Freestyle Music Park shut down in 2009 after the second attempt to try to revitalize the park. The 140 acre park was known for their music inspired rides and coasters. Most of the rides have sat on the property dormant since 2009. Many people speculated about the major coasters being sold off one by one to various parks around the country. Ital International were given the rights to sell the rides which were listed on their website late last year. Since then, some rides were sold to the local Family Kingdom Amusement Park in Myrtle Beach. Many though were still listed on their website last week, but now have been removed. It seems that for most American coaster enthusiasts, the possibility of riding these coasters will now be slightly more likely as seeing a live performance of Led Zepplin.
