Attorney: Freestyle Music Park not planning to reopen in 2010

MYRTLE BEACH, SC - CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - An attorney who represents an amusement park on South Carolina's Grand Strand says there are no plans now to reopen Freestyle Amusement Park this summer.

However, attorney David Slough said Monday that could change if the park owners, still negotiating with new investors, are able to line up new funding.

The park was scheduled to open this month for the 2010 season.

Slough says the park is still working to pay off a $570,000 debt it inherited when it bought its predecessor, Hard Rock Park, which opened in 2008 but closed after one season.

New investors bought the park and reopened it as Freestyle last year.

Freestyle has until Thursday to pay off the debt. Slough says he doesn't know if the money has been lined up.
