  1. ^^^^My pleasure! They were a lot of fun to make. And yes, they play many country renditions of popular songs.
  2. Hey! Long time no update. My Spotify playlists are ready to be released. A few songs are missing, some are unavailable, but I tried my best to get them as accurate as possible.
  3. If I remember correctly, they played the theme to "The Pink Panther" by Henry Mancini near the end of the Paramount years.
  4. Yes, "Fratelli Chase" by David Grusin. I was digging through old forums to see if I missed any from the original list and that was one that was listed, along with Beetlejuice by Danny Elfman, which they play during Haunt. I'll be sure to add one of the Addams Family themes, even if it isn't exact. If it ever becomes available, I'll be sure to replace it with the right track.
  5. I found other songs from other films, such as The Goonies and Pee Wee's Big Adventure. I believe I read that they played "Moon River" by Henry Mancini from Breakfast at Tiffany's and "Chariots of Fire" by Vangelis. The only thing Addams Family related I could find, aside from the main theme from the sitcom, was a 1 minute or so long piano cover of "A Party... For Me?"
  6. My pleasure @AZ Kinda Guy! I actually made a Rivertown playlist with the Pickin' On Series. I'm missing a few songs, but it has a good number of them.
  7. It's on the album, however it wouldn't let me choose it. I did find a piano rendition of the waltz portion of "A Party... For Me?" on The Bucket List album.
  8. They played the Star Trek theme for the fireworks, that I remember well.
  9. ^^I've been looking for the Addams Family piece for a while. It's on YouTube, just not Spotify.
  10. Hey! It's been a while since I've posted on here. I decided to comment on this thread rather than start a new thread since there are so many threads on this topic. As we've discussed, Kings Island has been making improvements to the soundtrack heard around the park, namely International Street and Rivertown. In my free time, I pieced together some playlists on Spotify of International Street from 2017 and 2018 as well as Rivertown. As a kid, I grew up going to the park under Paramount and eventually CBS/Viacom. One day, I decided that it would be cool to make a playlist of the music that played on International Street during the Paramount years. I searched through old forums and created a playlist of any music I could find from that era. These are the songs I have so far: - James Bond "Dr No." Theme by John Barry - Theme to Mission Impossible by Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. (At least a similar version) - "The Saint" by Orbital - Love theme from The Godfather by Nino Rota - "Breakfast Machine" from Pee Wee's Big Adventure by Danny Elfman - Love theme from Romeo and Juliet by Nino Rota - "Unchained Melody (Orchestral)" from Ghost by Maurice Jarre - "Top Gun Anthem" from Top Gun by Harold Faltermeyer - Love theme from St. Elmo's Fire by David Foster - "Italia" from The Talented Mr. Ripley by Gabriel Yared - "End Credits" from Star Trek: First Contact by Jerry Goldsmith - Theme to Superman by John Williams - Love theme from Chinatown by Jerry Goldsmith - "Rose" from Titanic by James Horner - "Axel F" from Beverly Hills Cop by Harold Faltermeyer - Theme to The Naked Gun by Ira Newborn - Theme to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope by John Williams - "Imperial March" from The Empire Strikes Back by John Williams - Main Theme from Forrest Gump by Alan Silvestri - End Titles from Driving Miss Daisy by Hans Zimmer - "Where the Money Is" from "The Distinguished Gentleman by Randy Edelman - "Marion's Theme / The Crate" from Raiders of the Lost Ark by John Williams. Are there any changes that I need to make or any songs that I am missing out of that list? I plan to provide the links to the playlists on here sometime in the near future. Thanks everyone!
  11. Riding through there with "Linus and Lucy" among other Vince Guaraldi Peanuts themes would be very fitting. Make the entrance a giant version of Snoopy's dog house. Does Hanna Barberra have the rights to the old Enchanted Voyage melody? It's a very catchy tune when you listen to it.
  12. I'm sure it will remain the original PTC trains. With Wildcat at Lake Compounce, they had to rebuild large sections of structure for that coaster to accommodate the Millennium Flyer trains. Racer is simply receiving new track in some areas rather than a full overhaul. Millennium Flyer trains would be very nice on Racer, though.
  13. Another thing to keep in mind is that Thunder Road had major structural problems, while Racer does not.
  14. Glad things are looking up for the ride. I hope GCI continues to do this work in the next few seasons as well.
  15. I've often wondered what could've been myself. I never rode Son of Beast, but my father found it to be a very rough and uncomfortable ride. He's an engineer and he said, while Sonny was still SBNO, that the park should've invested money in rebuilding the coaster with stronger, more durable wood. One of his favorite roller coasters was Mean Streak at Cedar Point, the giant Dinn Corporation woodie built in 1991 (He had gone up with my mother that season to ride it; we still have photos of the new southern yellow pine structure in a photo album). Shortly before the coaster closed in 2016 to make way for what would become Steel Vengeance, we went up and rode it one last time (first and last times for me). Despite its roughness and bumpy ride experience, I actually enjoyed Mean Streak and could see why he liked it. The major downside to Son of Beast was that Paramount cut costs while building the coaster, explaining why they didn't use the best wood. Mean Streak, on the other hand, had a great structure with track that quickly got rougher over time. When the rumors of Son of Beast returning began stirring, which I knew there was no water to those theories, I began wondering to myself if had Son of Beast been similar to Mean Streak, with a much more sound structure, would it still be around to this day. Still, to this day, my father and I both look back at the possibilities and the potential the ride had.
