California theme parks add Chili Peppers' soundtrack to coasters

Disney's California Adventures is transforming its Space Mountain and California Screamin' rides with new soundtracks based on a specially remixed version of Red Hot Chili Peppers' music.

The Rockin' Both Parks remixes, part of Disney's 15-month Year of a Million Dreams promotion, will incorporate a new light show and be timed with sound effects to correspond with the twists and turns of the coasters. The exclusive Red Hot Chili Peppers soundtracks will be in place through April 26.

Disneyland's Space Mountain will feature a customized remix of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' 1989 recording of Stevie Wonder's song "Higher Ground," while California Screamin' at Disney's California Adventure will feature a customized version of the Chili Peppers' 1999 song "Around the World."
