From aj geezseriously ... Some of these songs are funny

for example: Yogi Bear, Muppet's etc....
From Mike GallagherI've never been on the Triple R. But I've seen the list of the "regular" songs. Nothing appealed to me. Several on this list do, however.

I always thought Petty's "Running Down A Dream" would be a great coaster soundtrack song.
No RAMONES? What's THAT about??
"Good Times Roll" by the Cars would be pretty neat.
Too bad "Won't Get Fooled Again" is sooooo much longer than the ride. That's for you, TH (Keith Moon) Creative. Incidentally, I read a few years ago of plans to make a film biography of Mr. Moon. Wonder what ever happened to that?...
From Robert NilesIf I pick "Won't Get Fooled Again," will they let me put on my sunglasses when the music starts? :^)

From Tony DudaWon't Get Fooled Again is probably the CSI version. Free Bird must really be edited, it starts so slow. These songs are better than the listed songs, I wonder why the subterfuge?

From Hermione PotterTony they don't have the rights to the songs so they can't officially offer them or more importantly sell ride videos featuring them.

From Terri PierceThere's a video around somewhere that shows you how to enter them. My list is so long Im going to need to be taken back to the room in a wheelchair! Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin....

From Ashleigh NoadDoes anyone have the link to the instructions to get these songs up? I remember reading it a while back and I cannot find it for the life of me!

This song look great! To be honest, when I first/last went on the attraction in 2009, I didn't recognize half of the tracks!!
From Orrin CarstarphenWhen you first board the ride press and hold the RRR logo on the touchscreen for approx. 8 seconds. A number pad will appear and you enter the 3 digit number for the song of your choice, you will NOT get confirmation that the ride has accepted the number so don't panic. You will not be able to get a video of your ride if you use one of these songs. Have fun

From Andy MilioIf I ever ride this ride, I'm putting on #703 8)

From Kelly MuggletonAs a massive Madonna fan I will definitely be picking Vogue in a few months time!!

From Zach NelsonThey are a ton of songs in this list that I wish I had known about when I was down there last year. But, if you don't remember you're favorite, the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" is a great coaster song if you're in to rock!
Posted May 11, 2011 at 7:15 AM
From Zach Nelson^ *That should have read "They're" or "There are" haha
Posted May 11, 2011 at 7:16 AM
From Tony DudaZack, since you started it, the "you're" should have been "your". This may be the only time the incorrect mix-up of You're and Your has been that way which is why I commented on it.

From Zach NelsonVery true Tony, very true. My grammar must be off today. I usually proof my posts but I must have been out of it this morning haha.

From Ashleigh Noad@ Orrin, thank-you very much! Will come in handy on the next trip.
Posted May 12, 2011 at 5:06 AM
From Jeff ElliottAn important thing to remember is if you choose your own song off of the hidden list, it disables the on-ride video.
Posted May 12, 2011 at 6:18 AM
From Orrin CarstarphenIf you google "Rip Ride Rockit hidden tracks" you can find the video on youtube that shows you how to do it. After holding the logo for 8 - 10 seconds you reasee it and then the keypad appears. just enter the number and hit enter. if you get a message about video being disabled then it worked, if not it didn't. Sorry about the earlier post but it has been quite a while since I used this.

From Ashleigh NoadFortunately, I am unable to buy the DVD because of regional restrictions anyway. So I wouldn't ever be able to play it back. Personally I would much prefer an awesome song to watching a DVD of a ride experience.
Posted May 13, 2011 at 2:45 AM
From Kurt LarsonI feel like a complete moron for saying this... but I really did feel like the song made the ride way more enjoyable.
Posted May 14, 2011 at 12:29 AM
It was one of my favorite all-around rides upon visiting Orlando last summer.
Had the song not been playing, there's no way I would have felt that.
They need to add something really bad-ass like The Chipmunk Song to the the Easter Eggs. Now THAT would be truly ripping. Riding. And rocketing. Or urrr... right.
From Mike GallagherKurt, just curious..which song did you choose?
Posted May 14, 2011 at 6:10 AM
From Kurt LarsonMike- I chose Motley Crew "Kick Start My Heart"
Posted May 14, 2011 at 9:24 AM
It seemed so ridiculous that I had to choose it. It really does kick in with the chorus at just the right time.. "Whoa, yeah, kick start my heart!"
Funny note: My fiance and I were boarding the ride and she wanted to hear Evanescence. We're fairly competitive so I kept saying there's no way she was going to hear that. When my song by Motley Crew started up, I cackled with glee and rubbed it in her face that my song had won. I assumed everyone heard the same song.
Umm.... yeah, turns out every rider gets to hear their own song (obviously). I didn't realize that and thought my song had won and everyone was hearing it.
The look on her face when she realized I thought she heard Motley Crew was priceless, and I have never lived it down.
Sigh... dudes like me are such morons at times.
From Mike SearyI'm so bummed that I didn't know about "Wake Up Dead" (Megadeth) on my last visit....
Posted May 14, 2011 at 2:05 PM
From Mike Seary...or the Ministry stuff
Posted May 14, 2011 at 2:22 PM
From Jacob Bolton@ kurt larson. its motley CRUE, not crew
Posted May 17, 2011 at 1:08 PM
From Kurt Larsonclearly Jacob.

I am an idiot.
I'm turning in my man card.
From Mike SearyDon't forget the umlaut... that's what makes it even MOAR METAL!
Posted May 21, 2011 at 2:29 PM
From Mike GallagherEven an umlaut wouldn't save your spelling of "MORE"..:)
