I just found an example of Rolling Thunder's Station Music. This Brings Back Memories!  

Rolling Thunder use to look impressive at night. This photo was taken in 1980.  

Here are two pieces of memorabilia from Rolling Thunder - a piece a wood and a piece of the track plate.

I wish more coasters had station music especially ones made for the ride. While I never had the chance to visit when Rolling Thunder was around, the station music somewhat sounds like the Superman theme.

Unfortunately we live in an A.D.D. world where people have to be entertained or plugged in 24/7. Just playing music doesn't cut it any more - there has to be TV monitors playing all kinds of "entertainment" while people wait in lines.

Which is why El Toro plays music videos instead of unique station music.

That's why I prefer a ride queue that sets a theatrical tone like Skull Mountain, as opposed to just watching TV videos. Obviously it is easier to accomplish this with indoor coasters, but the original queue for Batman: The Ride was a classic example of what can be done with outdoor ones. Too bad it was diminished over the years.

 

The queue for Dark Knight was pretty good when it was opened, but it seems lame now and needs some kind of update.
