I like how they build a roller coaster in the same time it took them to built new lockers for Harry Potter.   

On Sunday I ventured out to the Universal Orlando Resort for a chance to see the new holiday offerings at the two parks. This year is a little different thanks to COVID-19, but Universal has still man

^Agreed. I think the newer Intamin lapbars are actually the best steel coaster restraint currently being produced. When comparing overhead lapbars on Taron and Blue Fire, I found the Intamin ones to b

While nothing really jumps out at me, I think this will be VERY popular with the general public (not the band!)

 

I for one will be rockin' out on my first ride to KC and the Sunshine band!

 

Just because...

 

What will you all pick for your first ride?

Ugh, I don't know, I guess I was hoping for some Boy Bands or something a bit more 'younger pop'!

 

Nothing like rocking to Nsync while riding!!!

 

Too much Fergie and Black Eyed Peas, I mean seriously, how cheap must they have been to license!!??

 

For my first ride, I think I'll choose, ugh, I don't know...I guess Bring Me To Life?!?!

I'll pick "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" by Daft Punk. For a second ride I'll probably choose "Bring Me to Life."

 

...Anyone else find it weird that there are two Beastie Boys songs and two The Crystal Method songs?

All I know is that if there is ever a fatality on this coaster they BETTER have been listening to "I Will Survive" just for the ironic nature of the whole thing.

Probably got a good deal when licensing the songs.

I’d definitely pick Keep Hope Alive by The Crystal Method. The beginning of the song is perfect for the lift hill. I can only imagine how awesome that would be while riding.

Frankly, I'm not a fan of Black Eyed Peas with fergie at all. Before she came, they hadan eccentric vibe to them--now it's lost.

 

If I were riding, my choice would be for some B-E-A-S-T-I-E. WITHOUT A DOUBT.

I guess I'd have to go with "Kickstart My Heart" first followed by "Sabotage" and then "Rock Star". A wide assortment, but nothing that really jumps out at me as an "OMG, that song would be awesome to listen to on a coaster!"

^I won't lie, that'll probably be my second choice, and likely my dad's first. He had all of their albums, and probably still does somewhere in our house.

Um...HELLO!!!!

 

No love for KC and the Sunshine band? C'mon!!!! That's the way uh-huh, uh-huh I like it!

 

 

I'm dissapointed there is even a list to choose from when CLEARLY this is the best choice.

No no no no no

 

THIS screams "FLASHING LIGHTS! VERTICAL LIFT! NON-INVERTING LOOP!"

No Final Countdown = Fail. So it's totally KC & The Sunshine Band for me!

 

I suspect that a lot of these songs are ones either owned outright by some Universal-owned company, or ones with an already existing/cheap licensing agreement. Which is why I also suspect why there are repeat artists.

 

At least the playlist isn't clogged with American Idol rejects and winners you've already forgotten about...
