Hidden songs confirmed on Rip Ride Rockit coaster

by

dsc02020

dsc02010The newly open Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster at Universal Studios lets riders choose from 30 different songs to listen to during the ride. (Click here for the full list.) But there have been rumors online of up to 999 songs available by following specific unlisted instructions.

Yesterday we interviewed Louis Alfieri, the ride’s creative director, for an article in our upcoming Fall 2009 issue. When asked about the hidden tracks, he replied, with a big smile, “Rockit has the ability to offer layers of discovery that no other coaster has before.”

So with that answer, we had to try to access the hidden tracks ourselves, and it works! Here’s how to access the hidden tracks. But keep in mind that the hidden songs aren’t available for an on-ride video.

When you sit down, instead of selecting the songs listed, hold your finger on the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit logo at the top of the screen for about five to 10 seconds. When you lift your finger, a number keypad should appear on the screen. Enter any three digit number from 001 to 999 and touch enter. You’ll hear a click but no confirmation screen will come up. (At least it didn’t for me.)
EDIT: It appears there aren’t 999 songs to choose from. If you enter a three digit number that doesn’t contain a bonus song, you’ll get the default song, Busy Child by The Crystal Method. Bryan reported below in the comments that the bonus tracks seem to be between these numbers: 101-132, 301-312, 501-508, 701-718, 901-904

Now all we need to do is figure out what numbers correspond to which songs. These haven’t been confirmed, but here’s what’s been reported so far:

#101 – The Temples of Syrinx by Rush
#102 – Blues Before and After by The Smithereens
#103 – Break on Through by The Doors

I find it highly ironic / suspicious that there are two Muppets songs on a ride at Universal. Still, that is a fun Easter Egg, and probably would warrant a few rides of the coaster, just to play around with that feature. And I hope, HOPE that choice #666 is “The Number of the Beast” by Iron Maiden. It’s only right.

508 is a song called Pivot by a band called Dry. They’re a very unknown band from Orlando/Winter Park, FL. That’s my friend’s band and his dad works at the park so his band got on the ride.

I’m going tomorrow, any numbers you want me to try? If so, how many times could I ride in one day?

Reply
Matt August 23, 2009 - 7:26 am

Alex, the consensus seems to be that people want to know about number 666. You’re not superstitious are you? 😉
Also try a low number under 030 to see if, in fact they are the official songs.

Reply
Chris August 23, 2009 - 6:15 pm

Songs 100- 114 are hidden tracks. The ride broke down right as we were supposed to get off so we had time onplay aroud a bit. Song 436 and 950 are blank. One of the ride ops said back to the future is somewhere as well as the mountain song from fantasia

Reply
Chris August 23, 2009 - 6:18 pm

Follow up: there are also 2 metallica songs in the 400’s and most of the ride ops seem to believe there are only 80 tracks hand picked by the designer scattered throughout all 999 selections. Good luck. I rode twice and both numbers were a miss

Reply
Matt H. August 23, 2009 - 6:55 pm

I am a SRSLY big fan of metallica…. so if any1 finds out which number/numbers is/are metallica, then PLZ tell me.

Reply
Matt August 23, 2009 - 7:43 pm

Interesting thought Chris – that there aren’t 999 songs, but just a few at random numbers. But could it be that if it was blank something just went wrong or it wasn’t entered correctly?

I tried #316 and it was a song I recognized, but I don’t know the name of it.

Reply
Bryan August 23, 2009 - 9:27 pm

“You’ll hear a click but no confirmation screen will come up. (At least it didn’t for me.)”

That’s because there’s not a bonus track for the number you entered.

After entering a valid bonus track number you’ll get the song screen

Across the top will say bonus track and then below will be the number you entered as well as the RRR logo.

316 is not a bonus track, what happened to you is that “Rave” just picked for you, which is busy child by the crystal method.

“and it seems types of songs are grouped together.”
Exactly. Any number in these ranges will yield a bonus track, enjoy!
101-132,301-312,501-508,701-718,901-904

Reply
Matt August 23, 2009 - 9:56 pm

Thanks for clearing that up Bryan. I’ll update the post with your information. But before I do, based on the numbers you provided, you’re saying there are only 74 different hidden or bonus songs?

Reply
Ben Harris August 23, 2009 - 10:05 pm

And there isn’t a 666! Aww…

Reply
Bryan August 23, 2009 - 10:27 pm

I know there are at least those 74 tracks. For there to be any others it would have to placed very randomly because I have yet to discover that a track exists outside those ranges.

Since these were mentioned in previous replies I’ll tell you that:

Night on Bald Mountain by Modest Mussorgsky is 904
and Cyanide by Metallica is 701

Btw I held it down 4 5 sec. and it didn’t work so I did 10 sec. and it worked… but it was 2 late. I couldn’t enter the # in time! Do you think 7 sec. would work? Btw should I tell other ppl bout this easter egg or should this be kept a secret?

Just rode it again and tried out the hidden songs. I am a huge Metallica fan and tried 702 to figure out what it is. Just so you know 702 is NOT a Metallica song. I don’t know what it is, but it’s definitely not Metallica. Hidden songs are very easy to access and I look forward to listening to more.

Me and my cousins boyfriend had the idea to get a group of people together and do nothing but say “ok you two play 001 and 002. You two do 003 and 004.” and so on… ride until you get to 999… might take a while but when it isnt your turn on the ride you can throw up all you want… sounds like a good idea to me

Just got back from Rock the Universe and can confirm the songs for a couple of the added artists for Rock the Universe. The Switchfoot hidden track is “Mess of Me.” The Family Force 5 hidden track is “Dance or Die” and the David Crowder Band hidden track is “Eastern Hymn.” I would really be curious to hear if the RTU hidden tracks stay up after Rock the Universe is over. Someone let me know.

Confirmed that the RTU songs still were working during HHN…but songs 777 and 778 are switched around. 778 is the RED song, and the song is called Faceless. 777 is the David Crowder song.

Glad to see that this is still active, hoping to see more hidden songs.
