Not to be confused with the The Hard Luck Bears.

The Hard Luck Bears Jamboree are three surviving and modified Rock-afire Explosion bands that are operating at all three Gulliver's theme parks in the United Kingdom.


All three of these modified Rock-afire Explosions operated at Gulliver's Kingdom, Gulliver's Land, and Gulliver's World amusement parks. Mitzi, Fatz, Dook, and Rolfe wear original Hard Luck Bears masks, and have custom country themed cosmetics. Billy Bob, Looney Bird, Beach Bear, Choo-Choo, Earl, the Sun, and the Moon remained unchanged. The characters' voices also sound very different than their normal counterparts. Billy Bob is voiced by Roger Dunn, who also voices the park's mascot, Gully Mouse.

There are 3 Gulliver’s theme parks, and the shows all have small differences between each park. Fo example, the Gulliver’s in Matlock, Derbyshire has Looney Bird in front of the center stage instead of next to Billy Bob, and it’s missing the Sun and Choo-Choo animatronics. The Gulliver’s in Milton Keynes has Choo-Choo in front of Beach Bear instead of next to Dook’s drums, and the Gulliver’s in Warrington has Billy Bob wearing a cowboy hat. All 3 Gulliver’s parks also have Billy Bob walkarounds.

As of 2017, none of the shows are running, and the signs have been removed.
