The Beast Experience

Recommended Posts

I think unless the music is incorporated throughout the entire experience it seems odd on just the lift - always has to me. I don't think in this case it adds a lot. I think it feels tacked on and unnecessary especially since its continually interrupted for the safety announce. If they had recorded that INTO the music then it would have been better - especially if there were areas throughout the ride that the music was heard again to "accent" what was happening - like the tunnels etc. But overall I won't miss it - It would have been better to have had themed music playing in the station instead of ONE DIRECTION

So I have changed my mind about The Beast music.  I think the first lift hill is better without it.  The announcement is annoying.  I do like it on the second lift and have found my happy place.  That means they will probably change it for 2016.

 

Still kind of forlorn about not having The Beast as my first coaster in 2016, but will do Thunderhead so that my first 2016 coaster will be a woodie.

I don't get why no one likes it... I really prefer the music, it adds to a theme, that seems to be missing beyond the station and the forest setting that makes you feel like you're being hunted. The music adds suspense as you ascent.

Oh my I didn't even consider what my first coaster will be! It'll be at Dollywood, I know that much!

To stay on topic, I don't mind the music or the announcement on the lift hills. I hardly pay attention to them anymore after riding for so many years

Music in stations/on rides/etc. doesn't even phase me. I'm so in tune with the moment I'm in when I'm at a park. Being at a park, riding a coaster, flat ride, anything to do with a park, is my therapy. I take in the experience. Music can be playing but I listen to the things I can't hear at home, i.e. the ride, the chatter of folks in queues, the restraints opening and closing, etc.

I think music can greatly improve the experience of an attraction. I think it's a very underrated element of theming.

What are the songs called that play on some of the lift hills anyway? I would love to know!

This was in another thread last year at Halloween Haunt.  I am sorry I don't recall the poster's name, but he posted a video of him and his son at Haunt.  In the Octoberfest area, I heard the "old" lifthill music on the speakers.  I commented and he replied that it was from the Independence Day soundtrack, but I can't remember the name of the song.

That may be, but for me personally it does nothing for me. I'm so in tune with music outside of parks that paying attention to it in a park disturbs my "therapy" if that makes sense.

I love the Legend howl and Banshee scream.
