Flashback!! My POV, Vlog, photo slideshow with music, trip report. I retroactively added photos of my souvenirs (magnets, mug, park map & park info, T-shirt), which are rare/special artifacts now, to the beginning of the original video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CH2b2jhyL8 (seen on my 2nd Utube channel: The Unknown One).
*This same completed video was uploaded to both my 2nd and main YouTube channels.

-Photos of souvenirs
-"God Gave Rock & Roll to You" by KISS.
-Our second visit to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (after 2007).
-We stayed two nights at "Wild Wing Resort" in Aviary Village (Festiva Resorts).
-My cousin Gabriella and her friend did the bungee jumping activity inside Coastal Grand Mall.
-We visited family on my mom's side (Originally from Long Island, NY), and met up for our first and only visit to "Hard Rock Park". ("Hard Rock Cafe" brand)
It had just opened that spring, brand new and full of potential.
-Full nighttime fireworks show, featuring the songs "We Will Rock You" & "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen.

-After show: "Man in the Box" by Alice In Chains (1990).
-We ate at "Cracker Barrel" & "Bob Evans" Restaurants.
-After this, we went down to Orlando, FL again (2nd visit since summer 2003). Universal Studios and Disney World! It was the last stop on our big summer 2008 trip, before heading back home to CA.
-Freestyle Music Park (previously known as Hard Rock Park), was a music themed amusement park built on 55 acres (22 ha) of a 140-acre (57 ha) property located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
-The park was located at the intersection of US 501 and the Intracoastal Waterway. It included part of the former Waccamaw Factory Shoppes in Fantasy Harbour, and used Mall 3 as its headquarters.
-The park originally opened on April 15, 2008, but closed on September 24, 2008, due to financial issues. It reopened on May 23, 2009, under the Freestyle brand, and closed again after the 2009 season due to financial issues and lawsuits that were filed against the park.
-In recent years (but no longer), Jared McMullin of Friday Night Cranks hosted the Late Night Webshow live show near the former location of the park. I went there in 2018, watched the show live, and met & was interviewed by Jared. There was never another episode produced (Live Recording) of the LNW, as Jared decided to end it soon after. He has moved on since then.
