SFGAm Using Marriots Music Again

Postby benzo41190 » Tue Sep 11, 2007 7:08 pm

So I was at the park on this past Sunday and I was walking through Orleans Place and I heard the actual old Marriott soundtrack music. I could tell for sure it was the same music they used to play in the Orleans place. I though I heard it about a month before but I could tell exactly. But since no one was in the park, I could hear it very clearly.

So has anyone else heard it?

Thats been playing all year.
BTW were you wearing a TPR shirt? I was taking garbage bags over to Superstition and noticed someone wearing one of those shirts and made sure to comment (Carousel/Tower were already open at 9:45).

Checking in on this - are they still playing the crap from early 2007 or are they back to the Marriott music?

Orleans, Mardi, Hometown, and Yukon I know are back to themed music (not sure if it's Marriott-era music). Carousel Plaza has a new soundtrack that sounds too cartoonish compared to the original soundtrack. County Fair and the park entrance gates have only like three songs playing for those areas, all three of them suck. Yankee I can't confirm anything.

They are also playing a newer version of the disco song "Car Wash" throughout the park every hour I believe, from what I've heard, it's to keep employees focused on keeping the park clean.

Does anyone know if they're playing the Carousel Song at the beginning and end of the day this year? I'm still yet to hear it.

Yes they do still play the Carousel song at the opening and closing everyday. That is basically the only time you will get to hear original Marriott songs in the park. Unless you ride like the carousel I believe?
See you on the Midways, Bradley

^ Yes, I believe that's about it. Also, I think Sky Trek Tower may play an original Marriott's ditty, but I'm not sure.

Though most of the music has gone away in favor of pop tunes, Six Flags has kept some themed music. The Dark Knight has begun playing the film's soundtrack in the area around the ride and Batman: The Ride still has its interesting mix of Prince, U2, soundtrack, and Seal music from the Batman Returns album.
