Speculation begins over future of former Freestyle Music Park following sale of land

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The 125 acres of land where the former Freestyle Music Park once stood has been sold.

According to Horry County tax records, the site was sold for $3,545,000 on Dec. 28, 2018. Records show it was purchased by FTPP Bishop Parkway LLC, which was registered as a business with the S.C. Secretary of State’s Office in Oct. 2018.

In 2008, the site was home to the Hard Rock Music Park. The defunct park was then sold to FPI MB Entertainment for $25 million in 2009 to become Freestyle Music Park, which closed that same year.

Some rides from the park have since been sold, including a large steel roller coaster, which is now the centerpiece of Dragon Park in Ha Long, Vietnam. The park opened in Jan. 2017.

On WMBF News' Facebook page, many have speculated as to what they think the land will ultimately be used for. Some have suggested an amphitheater or drive-in movie theater, while others hoped for an indoor hockey rink.

Some neighbors said they’ve heard chatter of an RV park, but no rumors have been confirmed.
