Ride and Music Mashups – Haunted Mansion and Big Thunder

I’m a huge fan of Disney park music.  Listening to soundtracks takes me to the respective rides that I enjoy.  I can place exactly where I’m at when I’m listening to certain musical cues.  It always makes a ride better than without it.

But, what if attractions had a different soundtrack?  What effect would it have on the ride?  Would it be whimsical instead of scary?  Would it be scary instead of fun?

I decided to pit some ride throughs against a different soundtrack (and one in this post that doesn’t have a soundtrack to start with).  What do you think?  Does it change the ride for you at all?

Here are two to start the weirdness:

Haunted Mansion with some new and old Main Street USA area music.  And there’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad with the California Screamin’ music.  I know Big Thunder doesn’t have a music soundtrack to begin with, so that one is entirely experimental, but fun!  Let us know what you think about the rides this way!
