Freestyle Music Park in South Carolina Sadly Not Devoted to Debbie Deb, Nice N Wild

Last year, the $400 million music-themed Hard Rock Park opened in Myrtle Beach, marking "the largest tourist investment in South Carolina history." But seems like while dropping all that dough, nobody bothered to think that oops, the Hard Rock chain of hotels, restaurants, and casinos might care. And beyond this, attendance was poor enough that the park closed just a few months later, last September.

It's reopened, and been rechristened as the "Freestyle Music Park." Oops, nobody in South Carolina knew that was an actual genre's name. Check out this article in Myrtle Beach's Sun News that attempts to school snowbird Carolinians.

Maybe we can buy the name off them and construct the real thing, whose centerpiece, of course, would be a roller rink....
