Zeppelin Coaster Arrives at Construction Site
May 9, 2007
Pieces of the Led Zeppelin Coaster have arrived at the
Hard Rock Park construction site. Upon closer inspection,
some of the more notable pieces are rails with wheels,
the staircase which should following the first hill climb
and a section for a turn or loop (Most likely a loop).
Plenty of other pieces have been laid out on the west
side of the coaster's final location, in a parking area.
Another worth mentioning bit is that the steel framing
for concert venue over in Born
in the USA has been raised.

roar of bulldozers and thunderous claps driving beams
into the earth are in full swing as construction of Led
Zeppelin The Ride continues. Currently, crews are not
only working on the supports which are driven into the
ground, but the base of the Zeppelin hanger is taking
our most recent tour of the area, we learned that each
car on 150 foot Led Zeppelin coaster will be equipped
with mid range speakers and riders will be sitting on
a sub-woofer. A representative at the Preview Center compared
the Led Zeppelin compared the ride to the Rockin' Roller
Coaster at MGM Studios at Disney and said, "It's
a pretty serious coaster...It's different."
at another part of the park, the Maximum RPM coaster features
a Ferris wheel style loader will take your coaster's car
up to the top in the Ferris wheel lift and when you transfer
to the track, guests will plunge down at 4g's.
park itself has been granted permits to stay open until
2am. So prepare for a late night capped off with fireworks
and laser show.
