What will you pick to listen to on Universal Studios Florida's new roller coaster?
Written by Robert Niles
Universal Studios Florida today released the song list for its upcoming Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit coaster. Folks have seen test runs with Universal employees (I am told), so soft openings should not be far away. (An insider reported last week that CityWalk employees were invited to ride last week, but later reported that Universal rescinded that invitation.)Tweet
Anyway, I couldn't let this opportunity to do a mid-week vote slide. So let's hear when you'll be listening to on your first ride on the new coaster, whenever it opens.
There are 30 choices, six each in five categories: Classic Rock/Metal, Rap/Hip-Hop, Club/Electronica, Pop/Disco and Country.
Talk about your choice, in the comments. Personally, I'm leaning strongly toward "Sabotage" by the Beastie Boys, with an outside chance for "Pump up the Volume" by MARRS. (I just think those would go well on a coaster.)
But if I like the ride, and get the chance to ride again when I'm in a campy mood, I'm totally throwing down the Hammer. ;-)
By the way, what's up with the Hinder version of "Born to be Wild?" Couldn't clear the rights to Steppenwolf? Or did Universal pick songs while watching NASCAR?
