Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit’s bright red track has changed the skyline of the Universal Studios Orlando with it’s 167 foot vertical lift and one-of-a-kind non-inverting loop. Aside from the roller coaster’s unique layout, riders will be able to choose their own soundtrack for their ride, and afterwards, cut their own personalized music video of their ride. Today, Universal Studios Orlando released the song list for their new multi-media roller coaster. As promised, the track list includes 30 songs from five genres of music. Here’s the full list:
“Don’t Phunk With My Heart,” Black Eyed Peas

“Rock Star,” N.E.R.D.
“Sabotage,” Beastie Boys

Listen to the song list on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit’s web site.
I’m excited about a N.E.R.D. song making the list. They’re a great band with a unique sound. I’m surprised that they made the list, because they’re not as popular as the rest of the choices. I’d like to give a virtual pat on the back to whoever pulled the tracks together. It would be cool to see which tracks are chosen the most. After ‘Rock Star’, I’d probably choose ‘Sabotage’, ’Intergalactic’, and then ‘Hella Good’ (produced by the Neptunes members of the aforementioned N.E.R.D.).
