 Review of Time Machine @ Freestyle Music Park

Date Ridden: Summer of 2008. Times Ridden: 1 Led Zeppelin is a very cool experience at one of America&#39.s newest theme parks.....and let me stress the word &quot.theme&quot.. Everything about Hard Rock Park screams Rock and Roll from the rides to the giant Gibson guitar. Led Zeppelin is located in the &quot.Rock and Roll Heaven&quot. area and does an excellent job as the park&#39.s signature coaster. To begin with, other than the pre-show, which gives a little info on the band (I don&#39.t want to give away too many details), this is avery ordinary coaster. It is aesthetically pleasing situated out on the lake, is smooth with no rough spots or ear-bashing, and is fun to ride. However, it is geared more to the average park goes than the enthusiast as the long pre-show makes re-rides virtually impossible even on slack days like when we were there. The first drop is good with a decent loop and an outstanding zero-g roll above the lake. That is about it though. There are really no bad things to say about LZ, but it still seems like an above average experience with only a half-finished coaster. While we had a good day overall, the park seems to be struggling in its first season. I feel they are going to have to decide on whether they are going to be a family destination or a hang-out for the teenage crowd. As it currently is, attendance seems to be down, and while that is good for the enthusiast, it is bad overall for business. I wish Hard Rock Park the best. They have some very unique coasters that are not overly thrilling but still fun. Led Zeppelin is the closest they have to a true thrill ride despite its shortcomings.
