    Helter Skelter Coaster - With The Beatles

    When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
    Where I stop and I turn and then I go for a ride
    'Til I get to the bottom and I see you again, yeh, yeh yeh

    Do you, don't you want me to love you
    I'm coming down fast, but I'm miles above you
    Tell me, tell me tell me, c'mon tell me the answer
    Well you may be a lover but you ain't no dancer.


    Classic Beatles song.

    Imagine if they replaced the Aerosmith coaster in the Studios with a Beatles Helter Skelter Coaster. The ride vehicle speakers would remain intact, obviously, but the coaster would be changed to synchronize with the lyrics. For example: the beginning lyrics would match with that climb up a hill, then when the song gets heavier, the coaster gets faster and more abrasive. Does anyone like this idea?

    I like RnR the way it is now and don't want to see it change.

    I also think Disney trying to get the rights to Beatle's songs for use in the attraction would be way to costly. As a shareholder, I would nix the idea.

    I think the term Helter Skelter is associated with Charles Manson, I don't think that is the image Disney is going for.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    this would be a tragic mistake... imagine blasting off to... "we all live in the yellow submarine... the yellow submarine..." a tragic end to an awesome attraction...

    yeh... i agree... if it ever changed from Aerosmith... it would have to be another hard rock band... i would think...

    Sorry. I hate the Beatles and their overrated music. Aerosmith is by no means my favorite band but status quo is preferable to the so-called "fab 4".
    Also, IMO, U2's version of Helter Skelter is superior to the original.

    yeh... but here is my problem... part of the Aerosmith appeal is that they have about 7 songs during the ride that they change... these songs almost give you a different experience each time... songs like...

    Love in an Elevator
    Sweet Emotion
    Walk this Way
    Back in the Saddle
    Nine Lives

    these are all based upon which car you get in... having just one Beatles song on the attraction would kind of kill this differentiation...

    Re: Helter Skelter Coaster - With The Beatles

    I never got how the Beatles were so popular then, and what I don't get even more is how they're still so popular now

    I'm not knocking your favorite band, to each his own, but still...

    Also, Disney is releasing a Yellow Submarine remake in CGI soon, so there's a possibility.

    Oh my lord they really are making a Yellow Submarine movie.
    Yellow Submarine

    I refuse to watch this movie because I'm with MartianCrab and as I've said before, I don't get why they're so popular.
