|When you entered Pleasure Island from the No. 2 Bridge near Mannequins, the view to the background always included the imposing Rock'n'Roll Beach Club overlooking the Hub!|
Rock'n'Roll Beach Club.
And it's famous mural.
|Motion was the first club to be demolished as we showed you last week in this article. That took place in December, 2010 and ending in January, 2011. While that was going on, demolition crews began taking the glass out of Rock'n'Roll Beach Club.|
|So we knew RRBC would be next. A look inside in this view.|
|When Pleasure Island opened, the building housed XZFR Rockin' Rollerdrome where guests could skate to Rock music. Since rollerskating and alcohol were a combustible if not unwise mix, XZFR was short-lived and was replaced in April, 1990 with RRBC.|
|A view from the east in January, 2011 includes the Eagle's Nest Dock. The interesting story of that dock was featured in this 2011 Blog article here.|
Initial demolition took place inside the former club which necessitated blocking the windows to keep the dust inside.
|RRBC didn't take long to demolish. We didn't make it out to the Island for a few weeks that February but by the end of the month, it was rubble!|
|By the end of February, 2011, the debris had been largely removed and we were left with this area later described on Disney plans as "seed & mulch".|
|Now when you entered Pleasure Island from the No. 2 Bridge near Mannequins, the view to the background was initially rubble and then just sky! Sad.|
