Soaring onto the scene with its high energy maneuvers in 2009, Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit changed the skyline of Universal Studios Florida in order to balance the park’s offerings for the rush of crowds set to flood the resort for the debut of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Promoted as a revolutionary new roller coaster sporting daytime-visible LED lighting and an onboard audio system that would allow each rider to listen to music of his or her own taste without hearing the tunes of adjacent riders, this was meant to be no ordinary ride.

Since its launch guests have discovered that the ride has a hidden layer of interactivity, allowing them to deviate from the preset set list of songs they can ride with and rock to. Hidden songs activated by a unique but simple set of actions on the in-built touch screen in each rider’s seat restraint unlock a huge list of choices to further personalize the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit experience to the guest’s musical tastes.

Guests start by holding down the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit logo for roughly ten seconds (I recommend holding it for a few more to be safe), after which a number keypad will appear onscreen. Riders must know the hidden song code they wish to activate before riding, as the window for the code entry begins as soon as they are seated and ends as soon as the ride vehicle departs the station. It should also be noted that by activating the hidden songs, riders will not able to watch or purchase the on-ride video recorded throughout their experience.

Featured below is the full list of known songs currently available from the hidden list of tracks, courtesy of Theme Park Review.

  • When we rode I found that holding the logo for 6 second or so was sufficient. In fact, when I waited longer to let go (& letting go is critical) there was not enough time to key in the code (& I did not like the computer’s selection).

  • It is the best time to make a few plans for the longer term and it’s time to be happy. I have read this submit and if I may just I want to suggest you some attention-grabbing issues or advice. Perhaps you could write next articles regarding this article. I want to read even more things about it!

  • 782 is Monster by Skillet, and 784 is Fine Fine Life by For King And Country. I know that in the 770s and 780s are all contemporary Christian songs, like Until The Whole World Hears by Casting Crowns, and Freq Dat by Group 1 Crew.
