Freestyle Music Park reaches 1-week mark

By Trey Paul - bio | email

MYRTLE BEACH,SC (WMBF) -  If you ask Freestyle Music Park marketing director John Stein how business has been at the Grand Strand's newest amusement park, he will tell you business has been exceeding his expectations.

But on Friday when WMBF news visited the park, things didn't look busy.

"This is what we expect as far as business this time of day and this time of year," said Stein.

WMBF toured the park around 6 p.m. Friday as storm clouds filled the sky, but Stein said business has been right on track.

We asked him if he had the numbers to show us and he says he does, but just does not release the figures to the public and media.  When we asked why, Stein said it was "just policy."

"Every park does not release attendance figures," said Stein.

Stein told us the people that are attending are locals.

"Right now, we know it's working because we're offering specials to residents and they are responding," said Stein.

"We wish there were more people of course, but my children are enjoying it and having a good time," Little River resident Lillian Andrews commented.

"There's not really many people here right now, but if there were, the lines may be longer. But if there were people, this place could pick up," said Joshua Andrews.

Currently, Freestyle Music Park is open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. to attract people who want to visit the park after work or school.
