Everyone In South Carolina Should See What’s Inside The Gates Of This Abandoned Theme Park

From almost the very beginning, the much anticipated Hard Rock Theme Park that opened in Myrtle Beach in 2008 was plagued with issues. The music-themed park opened to great reviews exactly ten years ago this April. The Eagles and The Moody Blues were both invited to christen the venue during the opening days with classic music from the 70s and 80s. Unfortunately, that was the same year our country was hit with a hard economic downturn that eventually touched the lives of millions of people in the US, including the owners of the new theme park. They soon found themselves in economic hard times.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
