Led Zeppelin Track Arrives at Hard Rock Park

And it's bright white! Beautiful, wonderful, glowing white! I know I said it before but I think B&M track looks snazzy white.

Discover Myrtle Beach has some more photos.

It looks like a pretty fun coaster. Although, I'll never figure out why it needed a mid-course brake run. Since the track after the MCBR is one turn, one corkscrew, and another turn, it hardly seems worth the expense of the hardware. And since I've hardly ever seen a coaster crew dispatch trains quickly enough for three-train operations without stacking, the MCBR seems superfluous. I wish they had just put in a nice air-time hill instead. Just my two cents.

So true ... aside from adding a 3rd train there's no point IMO as well. It's been a while since the days of the big B&Ms that used 3 trains.

Heck, most parks stack two trains on coasters, the park must be ambitious to want to use three. Most parks have no interest in paying all that cash for a 3rd train to even be built.
