A joint creative connection between Hard Rock Park and legendary guitarist Jimmy Page, "Led Zeppelin—The Ride" was conceived to give Led Zeppelin fans the ultimate amusement park experience.
"Led Zeppelin – The Ride," named by Page, will also feature the Zeppelin smash-hit “Whole Lotta Love” which was selected for the ride by Page himself. The band's hit will be pumped out on the coasters powerful 64 speakers, generating 1,200 watts of music as the coaster hurtles the screaming rider down its mile long track at speeds hitting 65 mph.
The ride will feature six inversions and reach an apex of a 155-foot drop before riders plunge through a 120-foot tall loop, a 95-foot tall cobra roll, and even experience weightlessness in a 75 foot zero G roll. The ride will traverse a large part of Hard Rock Park, in places taking riders racing over the water. The designers also pushed the envelope by making the coaster as tall as the Federal Aviation Administration will allow in the country.
The Hard Rock Park will have a grand opening in June. The 50-acre rock ‘n’ roll theme park will feature individually themed music environments to cater to music fan’s diverse tastes. All flavours of rock will be represented, from American to British, through the 70s to present day.
Along with "Led Zeppelin—The Ride," Hard Rock Park will also boast four other roller coasters amidst a wide variety of other ride experiences, ranging from a full water park, bumper cars and racing games and many areas for the kids.
A rock and roll park would not be complete without music, with Hard Rock Park featuring exactly that: a 10,000 seat amphitheatre which will showcase live daily shows and special concerts.
