Kentucky Derby

Fri Jul 08, 2005 2:47 pm

Can anyone remember a sideshow that used to be opposite Corkscrew called 'Kentucky Derby'? I'm going a good bit back now (10 years?). I'm not sure if has been rethemed to the dino derby, but was same type of idea. I think it had camels racing instead of the dinos.

I'd love top see pics if any are out there, or even better hear the theme music, which was extremely catchy if I remeber right.

Any takers?[/b]

Is weird, but that tune is one of the main things I remember from my first visit to AT. Think it must be because it was opposite Coorkscrew, which was one of the most popular rides back then, so had to listen to jingle over and over while in queue. Great to hear it again though!

Its a great crowd and revenue puller!

They are brilliant and the DD theme is excellent. Along with the theme tune.

However I feel Mutant racers isnt being used to its full potential. It needs a cathcy tune and a person with a microphone and plenty of music to draw attention to it!

I love its eerie forbidden valley style 'droan' though. works perfectly in the area.

Clicky for music

Works much better than most other things would.

I came back from skeggie on saturday, I played an arabian derby a whopping 16 times and a kentucky derby twice. I have to say they are addicting. The arabian one was like 4 games for £1 so it wasnt too bad.
