Beech Bend Pays Tribute to Michael Jackson

It seems the entire world has been affected by Michael Jackson's untimely passing, and the amusement industry is no exception. Beech Bend Park, home of the Sea Dragon swinging ship that once operated at Michael's Neverland Ranch, has been inundated with phone calls and visits from fans who wish to pay their respects by riding this piece of history. A memorial has actually formed at the base of the ride, which is rumored to have been Michael's favorite.

To pay tribute to Michael and honor all of his adoring fans' requests, Beech Bend will be offering free admission and complimentary rides on the Sea Dragon for one night only, Sunday, June 28, from 5-7 p.m. They also welcome additional contributions to the memorial. What a nice gesture!
