In issue No. 9 of CLT, we're giving you a chance to win one of the week's hottest tickets. Here's what's up for grabs:
Hard Rock Park
Gas prices make the 350-mile round trip from here to Myrtle Beach no small expense, but how's this for an incentive: a family four-pack of tickets to check out Hard Rock Park, which opened this spring with 55 acres of rides, shows, eateries and shops fun for the entire family.
We'll be giving away a family four-pack to the park every Friday between now and Aug. 1. Here's how: Each week, we'll pose a series of trivia questions related to bands that have rides named for them at the park. Answer them all correctly, and we'll enter you into the drawing for the prize.
Today, we're focusing on Led Zeppelin. Good luck!
1. Who are the four original band members?
2. What was the nickname of the private jetliner that Led Zeppelin traveled in?
3. Robert Plant recorded the vocals for “Whole Lotta Love” in how many takes?
