Eagles Themed Roller Coaster Coming To Hard Rock Park

Myrtle Beach, SC -- Eagles band members have gone back into the studio to re-record their famed smash hit "Life in the Fast Lane", turning it into a one-of-a-kind version for a new roller coaster at Hard Rock Park.

Previously known as Midnight Run the roller coaster will now be called Eagles − Life in the Fast Lane. With a two-minute ride time, it's the longest roller coaster at Hard Rock Park.

Eagles − Life in the Fast Lane, designed and manufactured by Vekoma Rides of the Netherlands, features two lifts, one that is 39-foot tall and a second that is 46-feet tall. The 2,234-foot long ride reaches speeds of up to 50 kilometers per hour and pulls 2 G's.

Hard Rock Park guests will ride in four-car trains, seating two abreast in each or the car's three rows. To enhance the ride experience each train features an on-board high-fidelity digital audio system that will playback the Eagles recorded track.

Eagles is an American rock band formed in the early 1970s composed of Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit. "Life in the Fast Lane," was first featured on the Eagles' chart-topping album Hotel California in 1976.
