Did You Know?


The amusement park that the group spends most of the story in was an actual theme park. It was the "Hard Rock Park" in its opening year of 2008 and then, under new ownership and without the license to use the "Hard Rock Cafe" logo (and some licenses for the ride branding), changed its name to the "Freestyle Music Park for 2009's season. After that, it was closed and now is considered to be a "defunct park", just rotting outside of Myrtle Beach, SC. When it was fully open, it featured 50 rides and five modern roller coasters.

I enjoy it but....
27 May 2019 | by scottkurschSee all my reviews

The show is more than passable for me, but a lot of the complaints that people make ARE somewhat justifiable. I really try to overlook as much as possible. Just the thing that got me in the beginning of this episode was... with the dogs.

They hear a noise in the dark, notice where it's coming from, and Miles takes a torch, their only source of light and throws it on the ground near the noises. Now if he didn't want to get too close, out of fear, why on earth toss the torch ? I just can't imagine getting rid of that torch. Everybody knows to use a stick of FIRE to ward off wolves, tigers, wild dogs ...dinosaurs, cavemen, whatever.. Let's just forget the torch and have the dogs chase us around. Ok sounds like a plan. I know, people don't think when in crisis mode... Only this is Miles, the go-to military man. Oh well, just wanted to get that off my chest. Torches, man, torches.
