Freestyle Music Park survives its first summer in a slumping economy.
In its first summer as Freestyle Music Park, the Myrtle Beach amusement park shows some activity, but still below the hopes of management. Owner of Freestyle, FPI MB Entertainment President Steve Baker told the Associated Press: “Overall, I’m real happy and proud of this summer. We got the park open, the park looks great, the employees are outstanding and the guest reviews have been terrific. The results of the park are not what we wanted, but I don’t think we understood the economy to be like it was going to be.”
The park’s previous owner of Hard Rock Park filed bankruptcy last year after declining revenues and lack of attendance. Freestyle is hoping to boost revenue by making the park more “family-friendly” with various attractions for all ages.
