Towering more than 150ft into the sky, the B&M coaster will serve as a landmark helping travellers pinpoint Hard Rock Park from the Route 501 highway. The ride will located be partially over water in the Rock & Roll Heaven zone and reach speeds of 65 mph. Among six inversions will be a 120-foot loop. Every moment of the ride, including drops and loops, is timed to Led Zeppelin’s hit single Whole Lotta Love.

The 140-acre Hard Rock Park is scheduled to open 2008.
