Win passes to Hard Rock Park!

Gas prices make the 350-mile round trip from Charlotte 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 that are 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 the Moody Blues. Good luck!

1. Who were the two founding members of the group ?

2. In what two years was “Nights in White Satin” released?

3. The Moody Blues appeared in which episode of “The Simpsons”?

Send answers in an e-mail to wintickets@charlotte observer .com; subject line must read “Hard Rock Park.” Include your name and a daytime number. The deadline is 9 a.m. Monday. Answers will be published in this space next Friday, Aug. 1.

(Answers from last week: 1. Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner were the four original band members. 2. The Eagles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. 3.
