That music is terrible. It looks like video toaster stuff from a year or two later, which it might be. It sure is neat to see Avalanche Run without the building though. You can see how slow it is.

“Rock n Roller Coast” has been around since ‘89? Seems impossible.

Hey now, somewhere out there. Is a person who that was the biggest accomplishment of their professional music career. They wrote it and managed to sell it to a company who used it in a commercial.

Just because you don't like the a certain band or song, doesn't make it bad.

But in this case, yeah it's pretty horrible.

That music sounds like video game music from the time. It would work in a video game like Sonic The Hedgehog for example, but it doesn't fit well in a Cedar Point video.

Though to its credit, it encapsulated the magnificent cheesefest that was the late 80s perfectly. It's like a video someone today would make as a faux retro piece, only it's 100% authentic.

I admit, my eight-year old self would’ve thought the music is awesome. I also jinxed myself and had this tune stuck in my head over the weekend while out doing yard work. 😆

I also love how they just put the Magnum XL-200 logo (with no other details at all) at the very end of the video. "Oh by the way.... we're putting this thing in. Whatever it is."
