The Coaster101 Podcast: Hard Rock Park Memories with Josh Liebman
Welcome back my friends to the podcast that never ends! We’ve got a late Christmas present for you to unwrap! For our last podcast of 2021, we’re reminiscing about a park that’s no longer with us, and has a bit of a cult status in the enthusiast community – Hard Rock Park. We’re joined by Attraction Pros’ Podcast Co-Host Josh Liebman, who worked as an Operations Supervisor at the “Park That Rock Built” during its lone operating season in 2008.
We talk a bit about what it was like working at Hard Rock Park, attractions like Led Zeppelin: The Ride, Maximum RPM! and Nights in White Satin: The Trip, the transformation to Freestyle Music Park, Rock Stars trashing trailers, kitchen island-sized banners, and how many energy drinks it took to cycle a roller coaster prior to opening to the public!
