Hard Rock International has broken ground on the first Hard Rock Park, in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The 140-acre rock 'n' roll theme park will offer more than 40 attractions, including roller coasters, shows, restaurants, cafes, retail outlets and an amphitheater. In addition, Hard Rock Park will offer six distinct "rock environs," small sections of the park that celebrate a particular genre of music. The park will open in spring 2008.
