Re: Oblivion - Desperate re-theme needed!

I'd like to see some orange strobe lights in the tunnel maybe? 8) Oh that would be good. It could maybe link in with the music: the current drum n bass/techno stuff is very antiquated - I think a dubstep type sound would fit well. Granted, not everyone's cup of tea (myself included) but it's very f...

I was expecting all major rides to be 60 mins +
