Rating song choices for Hollywood Rip Ride, Rockit roller coaster


Universal Studios Orlando is currently building a new roller coaster called Hollywood Rip Ride, Rockit. While riding the coaster, you’ll be able to choose from a list of songs to listen to. You’re also video recorded while on the ride and will have the option edit and buy a copy of the song after your ride. The ride is set to open next spring.

Members of Universal’s survey panel were recently asked to look at a list of songs and rate how appropriate each one would be for the roller coaster ride. I’m told the list seemed to go on and on, as the survey let you keep rating more songs as long as you wanted to.

Some of the songs seem like very bad choices for a fast roller coaster. The interesting ones are the Indiana Jones theme, the Aerosmith songs (Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster anyone?) and the Back to The Future theme. The survey also asked how much you’d be willing to pay for your custom video and how you’d want it delivered (DVD, e-mail, download).

Here are some of the song choices listed:

  1. some of the songs on the list are good… but so much of it is just alternative rock… no indie or underground bands? Fall Out Boy is huge and im pretty surprised to not see them on their. get some more bands. get some pop-punk/pop-rock/indie bands that a lot of people between 16 and 25 listen to.

  2. I would reccomend adding sevearl high energy songs (i.e. Appetite for destruction by Guns & Roses or Slam by Onyx). You want to have adreneline pumping songs. Please let me know when the ride opens beacause I plan on attending opening day.

  3. personally, I would recommend “Symphany of destruction” by Megadeth, or perhaps “Holy Wars” as I believe they would be two EXCELLENT songs for riding with :D:D

    Cowboys from hell by Pantera would also be pretty rockin

  4. i really wanted to see the white stripes on that list…..im going to florida in a couple of weeks n the only way im getting on that terrifying thing is if ive got jack white with me in some form 🙂
