Hard Rock Park, an amusement park opening May 9 in Myrtle Beach, S.C., just announced a new ride: Eagles--Life In The Fast Lane is "a thrilling Mine Train Roller Coaster set within the Cool Country area of the park." Is it just me, or do Eagles fans seem a bit out of the traditional age demo for an amusement park? (Then again, the other big roller coaster is Led Zeppelin - The Ride.) And does anyone consider them "country"? Personally, I'd have preferred a ride based on "Hotel California." I can't abide the song, but you could really scare the wits out of people if there were steely knives stabbing all over the place. Any other suggestions for rock 'n' roll rides, Eagles-based or otherwise?
