    A Song Of Kid And Rock

    A Song Of Kid And Rock

    This week, we spend an incredibly long amount of time taking an incredibly long quiz about Cedar Point because, well, Kid Rock we guess????? Then, we bring Kid Rock into our music theme park and things go...rather poorly. First up, Jim does a virus un-approved VR coaster where you take the reins as Mr. Rock and hit Ba's wit other Ba's...or something like that. Then, Scottye showcases the Kidrousel Of Rockgress, or whatever, as we force the Sherman Brothers to present the history of white trash in midwestern America. Obviously, this was recorded on the fourth of July. Happy Independence Day, and Jim did pay a dollar for a certain track that appears towards the end of the episode.

    A Song Of Night And Fever

    A Song Of Night And Fever

    This week, we fail at finding a relevant quiz and instead answer questions about A Goofy Movie before giving our music theme park some attractions based on everyone's favorite genre - DISCO. First up, Scottye invites in the funk as he brings guests aboard Earth, Wind, And Fire's Afro Orbiters, an attraction that I assume will eventually be replaced with The Princess And The Frog theming in about 25 years. Then, Jim asks his guests to Escape To Funkytown as he takes this Lipps, Incorporated diddy and does all the genres through a wild roller coaster of a four minute attraction.

    A Song Of Rick And Roll

    A Song Of Rick And Roll

    This week, we actually do well at a music quiz before giving our music-based theme park some attractions based on everyone's favorite pastime - the rickroll. Jim gets confused and accidentally invites Rick Springfield in, while Scottye gets confused and forgets exactly what the premise of the show is. We still get two attractions out of it, somehow.

    A Song Of Beasts And Boys

    A Song Of Beasts And Boys

    This week, we set out to build attractions based on the Beastie Boys! First up, Scottye throws guests into a madcap riot through a city on Make Some Noise, featuring everything from Men In Black Alien Attack references to a giant Ted Danson. You may or may not have to fight for your right to Fastpass. Then, Jim almost commits manslaughter on The Brass Monkey Carousel, a diabolic spinner featuring tilts, twists, racing(?), and little brass monkeys to grab and get, like, a prize or something.


    Also, part one of our episode with Ride Rehab is now online over at WDWNT.com, so go check that out. Scottye vapes there, too.

    A Song Of Hair And Skin And Eyes

    A Song Of Hair And Skin And Eyes

    This week, your super knowledgeable hosts try to pass a quiz about Dollywood (which neither has been to). This leads into the pitching of attractions for MTP based on Dolly Parton's "Jolene", the absolute perfect song to be immortalized in a theme park. First up, Jim invites guests into the mind of Dolly as she dreams of confronting Jolene, who may or may not be an eldritch horror. Meanwhile, Scottye takes the OppAtt formula of using Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin and turns it completely around.


    Also, be sure to check us out on WDWNT's Ride Rehab podcast as part of a two-parter about "fixing" New Fantasyland. The first part drops on 6/9 at WDWNT.com

    A Song Of Jocks & Jams

    A Song Of Jocks & Jams

    This week, we begin by utterly failing to answer questions about Disney song lyrics before switching instead to the real meat and potatoes of giving our fantabulous music-based theme park some attractions based on everyone's favorite Jock Jams. First up, Scottye does some recycling, sort of, and lets guests take flight as the basketball from the 90s opus Space Jam. Then, Jim calls on the spirit realm and the local costume shop to bring forth an attraction based on the Village People's "Macho Man" (dig it). Of course, the late Slim Jim spokesman makes a supernatural appearance in this helicopter ride around the titular Village. And if that wasn't manly enough, stay till the end to hear about next week's challenge.

Hold on to your hats!!

Very funny show with two hosts who really love theme parks.

Proof that...

... there’s a podcast about EVERYTHING. These guys create a new theme park every season, coming up with two rides every episode. Some of their ideas are life-threatening but that’s part of the fun of just letting your imagination run, isn’t it?

I just love that there are people who are as nerdy about theme parks as I am about movies.
