lift hill music on The Beast


Recommended Posts

You answered your own question.  The lift hill music on The Beast came from the opening theme music from that show, Lost.  I believe that the music from that show was created by Michael Giacchino.

The Beast also used music from Independence Day:  an excerpt from the track titled "The Darkest Day."

What about this? It was used for the lift hill music before it was switched to Sub-Primed?

Anyone remember in 2011 when the station played another obscure portion of LOST soundtrack?

I want to say it came from season 4?

Was it this?

Wow! I never knew that they played that in the station. I love that score!

In 2008 there was station music. It was a mixture of adventure / western style music. Most notably... 

That musical experience was very short lived as I recall. :P

Does anyone remember what the western-style music was?

Sure was! Just like the return of the water feature that year at the turn-around cave.

As for what music it was Joshua... I don't recall the entire playlist but it was a collection of music about 30-40 minutes long.

Frankly - for The Beast's theme music, Kings Island should still use the "Firebird Suite" written by Stravninsky.  It was jazzed up and used as the music for "The Beast" segment in the 1981- 1982 KI show "Celebration." 

Remembering that portion of the show still gives me chills - it was really something to see and hear.  Especially for a wide eyed 10 year old (at the time) like me.  The darkness, the fog, the over-the-top dancing and masked/winged costumes, the scenic effects, the giant Beast, Demon and Bat props that came down from the ceiling over the audience in the darkness.

Its never been matched by any other Theme Park entertainment.

It really was incredible.
