 Review of Thunderbolt @ Funtown Splashtown U.S.A.

This is a pretty fun ride. Its well placed in the layout of the park... on the big ride end. Goes both directions at a pretty good speed. The opperator has control of the music making it a different experience each time you go. Well maintained mechanically, but with so many lights.. often many are out.

Ive noticed that as well. the thing I dont like is the music palyed is normaly wrong for the ride. They played a slow Britny Spears Song one time I was one it.

Yeah, I usually try to keep it upbeat when I work. I also like using like the TV themes as loading music as not to deplete the limited collection of good stuff. A big problem with getting the right music for the ride is that the park wants it to be family friendly as well. I play family stuff till the park lights go on, and then I switch to the more angry harder stuff. Its still appropriate, but not as appealing to the kids.

Take a look at the 70s and 80s bands they have some upbeat stuff and they tend to be family freindly. STYX is a good one to look for. also look to some modern JAzz and New age for good loading music. Some are even good enough for the ride itself. One sujestion is look for the Mision Imposible(first movie) remix CD. i have it it has MAltiple version of the theme song. 2 woud work very well with the ride.
