    Gotta say this sounds like an intriguing concept to me: a rock-n-roll themed amusement park.

    A Zeppelin coaster, tunes throughout the park, and a Statue of Liberty holding a Zippo lighter aloft.

    Perhaps we can help them out with creating/naming some future attractions for them. I've got a couple, but I'll throw out this one to start:

    Mama Cass's Deli.

    You may begin....

    The Metallica ride. It starts out like a really great, bold roller coaster, then ends up like "It's a small world."

    The House of Rush. Thrill to the haunted house, frantically searching for the exit as a creature with a high-pitched wail chases you down. Most who encounter this attraction hate it, while other praise it for its complexity and high level of craftsmanship.

    The Grateful Dead Experience. Strange, undecipherable music, while smoke and weird images projected throughout make you think you want to buy the ride's soundtrack even though you know it sucks.

    Dave Matthews Speaks To YOU! Horrible singer in a gimmicky ride speaks about stuff that's pretty universal, and every 16-24 year old who rides is guaranteed to come away thinking they have had the mysteries of life unlocked for them.

    Gwen Stefani's New Clothes: A dark, Fantasyland-type ride, targeted for young children. Adults will dislike the complete lack of substance or originality, but it will be a big hit with the kids.

    Look at the happy family on "The John Denver Experience."

    I would be interested in Alice Cooper's haunted house and miniature golf attraction and the Groupie Grotto.

    Frank Zappa's Chamber of Horrors - Patrons will be locked in a small room and be forced to listen to an entire side of Frank Zappa. Anyone who complains will be told by the staff that they "just don't get it, man"

    I thought that was Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

    Rick Allen's Wild Ride - Keep your hands and arms inside the vehicle at all times.

    Ozzy! - The ride becomes more incoherent as it goes, until patrons exit so disoriented they don't even know their own names or where they are.

    Aerosmith stars in Rock and Roller Coaster - It promises to be just as good as the Led Zeppelin ride, but is instead an oppressively long slog, with almost nothing interesting happening along the way. Patrons are left to question just what justifies "that piece of crap" enjoying such a long run.

    Van Whatever The Hell - A confusing coaster, it goes in many directions, never deciding on one for more than a few seconds, ultimately leaving everyone who rides it upset and annoyed.

    The Rolling Stones Ride - Not as good as other attractions built during its existence, especially the Beatles attraction or the Led Zeppelin coaster, but it seems to have its own group of followers who refuse to acknowledge its many flaws. Rumored to be slated for demolition to make way for a new Black Crowes dark ride, which no one thinks will be as good as the ride it replaces.

    The Kurt Cobain Show - It ends abruptly, which leads people to compare it to the John Lennon ride, which is actually vastly superior.
