Theme park soundtracks that get stuck in your head

How on EARTH has no one else said the main park theme to EnergyLandia?!

*sings* "EnergyLandiaaa, EnergyLandiaaa"
To those who've heard it, good luck getting that out of your head now! I last visited in 2019 and it's still stuck in my head.

I would also say all the Efteling music, especially Flying Dutchman and Raveleijn, but that's probably massively aided by me listening to them all the time 😅

I know the one you're talking about, and that comes in and out of from time to time. But whenever I think of Energylandia music, _this_ is what I think of:


The bit at 1.40 just screams Energylandia to me...quite literally!

Hi guys. Audio is arguably a key part of the theme park experience, even if it’s not something that often gets talked about. When it does get talked about, you often hear enthusiasts say about their favourite soundtracks, but what about those soundtracks that just get stuck in your head for ages after you hear them? That one theme park tune that you feel as though you’re hearing in your sleep after you’ve visited the park, because you just can’t get it out of your head? So my question to you today is; what theme park soundtracks just get stuck in your head whenever you hear them?

I’ve got two I can think of.

The first will probably come as no surprise; I’m nominating The Smiler at Alton Towers’ soundtrack for this. I don’t think I would have been able to make a thread about this subject and not mention The Smiler’s soundtrack! I actually rather like The Smiler’s soundtrack, I’ll admit, and I think it fits the ride very well, but I’d happily challenge anyone to stand in the queue for any extended period of time and not have “Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha…” looping round in their head for hours afterwards:

The second is a slightly more left-field choice, but I’m also going for the Oakwood park-wide theme tune for this, too. It’s a perfectly pleasant loop, but it’s only about 2 minutes long, and it’s played around practically the entire park. I certainly remember this being stuck in my head after my last Oakwood visit in 2019, and my Nan was driven mad by it within about 10 minutes:

But what theme park earworms can you think of?
Thanks for the audio by the way.
