From Andy MilitoThe Beatles :D Also AC/DC, Metallica, and Hans Zimmer. Ok, that last one isn't a band but his music makes everything epic!

From steve leeI want my Led Zeppelin coaster back!
Posted November 11, 2011 at 7:25 PM
From Mike GallagherI'm with Steve. On my visit to the late, lamented Hard Rock Park, I got exactly one dozen rides on Led Zep. I thought it was..of all the music themed/soundtracked coasters I've been on..the one that did the best job of integrating music synced to a better than average ride. Hell, I never even liked the band (I was a punk rock guy) until I heard Whole Lotta Love in that setting. At the same park, Life In The Fast Lane also did a mighty fine job...for a mine train, anyway. And Nights In White Satin? Pure bliss.

From Manny RodriguezThe Jackson 5 isn't rock but it is pretty good though
Posted November 12, 2011 at 6:16 AM
From Tim HillmanBanana Splits? Now that's a blast from the past. Man those Saturday mornings in the 70s were awesome.
Posted November 12, 2011 at 11:17 AM
I guess I could go for the Banana Splits.....as long as the ride shows them getting chased around by animatronic hippos. ;)
From Tyler BellNot really a band but, I would like to see a Michael Jackson ride. It could have a few Jackson 5 Songs.

From Neil ReeceRush, specifically "2112".

From Mike GallagherNeil,
Posted November 12, 2011 at 4:14 PM
Now THAT would be a looooong ride!
From steve leeQueen. Just pick any song in their discography and I'll be happy (though I'd prefer if they went with something a little less known - a "March of the Black Queen" ride would be brilliant).
Posted November 12, 2011 at 5:08 PM
From Mike GallagherIt's funny...even though The Hurler coasters at KD and Carowinds are no longer themed to Wayne's World, I can't get Bohemian Rhapsody out of my head when I ride them. Maybe it helps me tune out the pain...
Posted November 12, 2011 at 6:18 PM
From Manny RodriguezShah what a babe lol I love that movie how was the hurler when it was waynes world
Posted November 12, 2011 at 6:21 PM
From steve leeThe ride itself was exactly the same (only it was newer and not nearly as brutal as it is now). The queues had Wayne and Garth doing their schtick on monitors (with clips from the film sprinkled in).
Posted November 12, 2011 at 7:02 PM
The loading station was set up like a studio soundstage, though I have a lot of memories of some creepy Kewpie dolls being around as well. No clue how that figures in with the plot of either film as I haven't seen them in years.
Also worth noting is that Carowinds had a Stan Mikita's themed eatery as well. I assume King's Dominion had it as well, but I didn't visit KD at that time so I can't be 100 percent sure.
From Mike GallagherI don't think KD had Mikita's but I could be wrong..that happens sometimes :)
Posted November 12, 2011 at 7:00 PM
I vaguely remember dolls, but there was definitely a video of Wayne and Garth in the queue and in the station. There was also a Mirthmobile on the load platform!! Love it!
From Manny RodriguezThanks for the info mr Gallagher I spelled right yippee
Posted November 13, 2011 at 10:15 AM
From Brandon MendozaDefinitely agree with CCR, AC/DC, Jackson 5, and the Beatles!
Posted November 13, 2011 at 3:14 PM
I'd like a few songs of Deadmau5, Daft Punk, Caravan Palace, The Ramones, The Clash, and even though it's not a band, the Super Mario World music!
From Andy MilitoDom, you already said that :P
Posted November 14, 2011 at 6:18 PM
Daft Punk is something I hadn't considered!
From Karly TenneyGuns and Roses
Posted November 14, 2011 at 6:26 PM
From Grant DuvallMeat loaf and gwar- enter and escape hell.
Posted November 15, 2011 at 12:53 PM
From Mike GallagherYeah, Grant, I always thought Bat Out Of Hell would lend itself really well to a ride, with its fantastic imagery and visuals. If a park wants to build one, I'll even give them my autographed copy of the original LP to display in the queue. I mean that. No one's getting my autographed Ramones record sleeve, though...
Posted November 15, 2011 at 1:38 PM
From Andy MilitoKISS...forgot about them too.
Posted November 15, 2011 at 5:23 PM
I want a Hans Zimmer ride, gosh darn it! His Inception score could fit a roller coaster perfectly!
From Ray SchroederThe Who, Moody Blues, ELP, The Monkees
Posted November 16, 2011 at 11:34 AM
From Mark FairleighTom Sawyer by Rush. :D
Posted November 16, 2011 at 12:02 PM
From Jack CurleyI'd like to see Aerosmith's Rock n Roller Coaster re-themed to The Rolling Stones. I can only take so much Steven Tyler, and I think the Keith Richards/PoTC connection makes the Stones a more sensible choice.
Posted November 16, 2011 at 2:59 PM
From Manny RodriguezWhaaat!!!!!! Aerosmith is awesome maybe they could put that were caspian was and make the building larger
Posted November 16, 2011 at 6:30 PM

From TH CreativeThe Shaggs.
Posted November 17, 2011 at 5:41 PM
From Manny RodriguezWait whos the Shaggs
Posted November 18, 2011 at 12:12 PM
From Mike GallagherI don't get it, Dom. There was an old TV show called My Favorite Martian...but this is about music!!! :)
Posted November 18, 2011 at 1:12 PM
From Mike GallagherOh, it's the name of a group...
Posted November 18, 2011 at 2:38 PM
This old fart never heard of them. now get off my lawn, you gosh-darn kids!!!
From Andy Milito^ Mike, I'm 15 and I have never heard of that band whatsoever. :P
Posted November 18, 2011 at 3:02 PM
From Annette HatchI am loving the idea of a Rolling Stones one!! Yeah, I want to have a launch that shoots you through the mouth!! LOL! I could see zipping around to "Paint It Black".
Posted November 18, 2011 at 4:02 PM
OOh BTR that rocks! :D ha ha ha. Yeah, I get enough Big Time Rush with my daughter going on about how one is really cute (I just nod & smile)
From Manny RodriguezYour fav martian sounds like a stupid you tube band that spends all there time in there attic making pointless songs I'm 12 and like the classics better than newer stuff still I do like maroon5 And eninem on occasion
Posted November 18, 2011 at 4:24 PM
From Matt BabiakHow about this-
Posted November 18, 2011 at 5:33 PM
From the people who brought you "it's a small world" and other bad theme park music brings you the greatest song on the face of the earth-"it's a small world, baby" by Justin Bieber
This would be the single worst song ever. It would kill more people than Mission:Space. It would infect a new type of people with Bieber Fever.
From Andy MilitoMatt said: It would kill more people than Mission:Space.
Posted November 18, 2011 at 5:44 PM
That quote is terrible, yet hilarious :D
But oh my goodness, that would be terrible. The only thing that MIGHT be worse would be High School Musical: The Ride. *shudders*
From Andy MilitoI wouldn't know which seat to take :S
Posted November 18, 2011 at 6:33 PM
From N BMatt...... LMAO.....
Posted November 18, 2011 at 6:59 PM
In the spirit of the nonsense that I usually post. My vote is for the late 1970's / early 80's Puerto Rican heartthrob boy band... Menudo. Then again, a coaster based on the 1985 sensation "The Jets" would be just as obnoxious.
From Mike GallagherHow about a twin racing woodie with on-board speakers...one train plays Devo and the other plays the Dazz Band.
Posted November 18, 2011 at 8:10 PM
Whip It vs. Let It Whip!!!
No Dole Whip..sorry, folks.
From Manny RodriguezWell dom atleast people know eninem
Posted November 18, 2011 at 9:38 PM
From Manny RodriguezDo people even know about yfm no do people know about eninem yes it seems to me your the only person on tpid that has heard about yfm nuff said PS quote from regular show hm hm hm and ohhhhhhhhhhhh
Posted November 18, 2011 at 9:44 PM
From Matt BabiakHow about the world first ever triple dueling roller coaster
Posted November 19, 2011 at 5:35 AM
Track 1-Rebbecca Black-choose from god-awful songs like Friday
Track 2-High School Musical-Fabulously suicide-inducing songs such as All for one, Get'cha head in the game, Bop to the top, and We're all in this together
Track 3-Justin Bieber- The worst thing since sliced bread(better get your Bieber Fever shots)
The ride would be named... Crazy Coaster(it makes you go crazy)
From Matt BabiakOr the killercoaster. I would be shocked if only twice as many people die on this roller coaster than Mission:Space(although, I hear that the Bieber Fever vaccine is working these days).
Posted November 19, 2011 at 5:53 AM
By the way, I reserve all rights to this in any TPA or any TPA like contest.
From Matt BabiakWhich track would you choose?
Posted November 19, 2011 at 5:57 AM
From Manny RodriguezUmmmm could you pleat make your own thread and stop making challinges on mine please
Posted November 19, 2011 at 6:35 AM
From Matt BabiakDom, you're scaring me.
Posted November 19, 2011 at 9:12 AM
But seriously, Maroon 5 is my favorite band, so I think a ride about them would be cool.
From TH CreativeHELLOOOOOOOO People!!!!!! The Shaggs!
Posted November 20, 2011 at 6:30 PM
From TH CreativeOr maybe Modern Lovers ... "Roadrunner" would be a helluva coaster soundtrack!
Posted November 20, 2011 at 6:38 PM

From Scott SupeckR U S H
Posted November 22, 2011 at 10:28 AM
think of an epic early track with killer light show and FX. Add that to a high speed ride and that's a good time, my friends.
From Andy MilitoManny, no Thunderstruck? Or Back in Black? I am disappointed.
Posted November 22, 2011 at 5:51 PM
From Manny RodriguezAs homer says it doh!!!! I forgot to put back in black I had it on my list of songs for the ride but I didnt put it there well I making my other ride next month just in time for Christmas

Posted November 23, 2011 at 11:02 AM
From Caroline DavisDavid Bowie would be best, if it's a heavily themed ride.
Posted November 23, 2011 at 2:14 PM
Just for the music it's got to be The Who. Blast some of that and it gets the adrenaline pumping.
From Manny Rodriguezi dont know why but im making new coasters everyday now and i thinking my goal in life is to be an imagineer but first i got to do collage so thats my first step
Posted November 23, 2011 at 2:34 PM

Posted November 23, 2011 at 8:01 PM
From Jesse KeyNot that I am a giant fan (I just think they can be a challenging listen)..... but if they made a ride out of some of Atari Teenage Riot's songs they may need a nurse attendant in case of seizures.
Posted November 23, 2011 at 10:25 PM
From Manny RodriguezI decided to change the Bon jovi ride for zz top and please give me ideas for the name of the ride I'm lost
