I hate to bump this thread, but I was emptying out my emails today and I came across an email I sent to SallyCorp regarding Nights in White Satin.

I was inquiring about the music track for the ride, a re-recorded version of the song performed by Moody Blues. The answer I got regarding the status of the song was quite perplexing.

As far as the music track for the ride you are correct that it is not for sale any where and I do not imagine it will ever be for sale. As I oversaw the installation from the park side I know that the track was a special designed track done in studio by the park and Moody Blues and is owned by the park and there for it will never be made into an album.


Rather bizarre. Anyone have any idea who exactly picked up the rights to the song when the park went Bankrupt?

Here's a video of the ride with the soundtracked version of the song:

Interesting. I'd assumed they'd used an edited version of the original song (not a new version of it).

I do vaguely remember them promoting the fact that the song was re-recorded and reworked to fit the attraction.

I do remember the orchestration for Life in the Fast Lane was also heavily reworked for the pacing of the ride, with the instrumental section being moved into an odd place for the song to allow for a better musical transition while re-entering the station to go up the second lift hill.

According to IMDB.com, The NBC show Revolution filmed here at some point over the past few months. It'll be interesting to see how they made it look post apocalyptic. Couldn't have been too hard to create.

Someone paid to enter the park? Looks like the season is off to a great start for this place!

Hell, during a regular operating day that place seemed as eerie as an episode of The Walking Dead.
