That is the one I couldn't remember. To me, that is the one which screams out CBeebies purely for Ents dancing along to it one year. It actually is one of my favourite moments at Alton ever.

Strangely enough, same here! When I wrote the original post this was the main song I wanted to know the name off - mainly as it’s been in my head all season and I didn’t want to wait all closed season to Shazam it at a later point. But that track does scream Cbeebies Land for me and I did love a bit of Charlie & Lola too! :)

I have a video of the CBeebies Ents team dancing to this a couple of years back. One of my favourite Alton Towers moments ever!

I know this is not exact audio, however Coastervideos have released a video showcasing Wicker Man from a brand new perspective! But also the fact that in the background you can hear some unreleased Wicker Man sound effects as well as a brief moment of ambient audio from the preshow too.

Not sure if this has been on here before but I'll post it again anyway.
The Hex theme is available as piano sheet music. It was transcribed by ear by Alastair Adams so is not my work. I took his sheet music and turned it into a musescore file if any of you use that. I also made a couple of minor changes where I saw and could fix slight mistakes. The piece makes great use of triplets but I feel there must be a key signature missing somewhere from the amount of flats used. I know the ending sounds a bit dodgy but that's what the pdf I have said was correct.

I remember learning this a while back as well as a few others, from a towers street page if anyone is interested:

This isn't the best quality recording of it but as far as I know it's the full soundtrack. The in the hall of the mountain king part is around the 13:40 mark

Does anyone know where I can find the full 25 minute theme for Spinball Whizzer?
I've been looking for ages and I can't find anything. The best I've found is the extended version uploaded by Theme Park Music Looped on YouTube but it's only a 7 minute recording.

I can remember hearing the full version a couple years back on YouTube but it seems to be gone now :(

I have a 16 minute Spinball extract on my phone, not the full 25 mins though. It's a recording I pulled from youtube a couple of years back.

Thanks to Nemesis Rider for the signature!

Is there any chance you could send it to me?
I never get chance to do that stuff when I'm there

Hi there,
We do have a 15 minute recording of the Spinball Whizzer soundtrack and we are planning to upload it soon.
We might try to also get a recording of the full soundtrack when we next visit Alton Towers again soon.

Only noticed it for the first time today, but on the Monorail, specifically the Jelly Bean train the music is very similar to the old CWoAR entrance music! Brought back a lot of memories for me, it’s normally so quiet that I’ve never really noticed it until now! Has anyone had the same thoughts?

I think this version of the soundtrack is better...  :lol :lol :lol

This needs to be Alton's official soundtrack...
