If you’ve ever enjoyed the Hamilton soundtrack, you will dig the hell out of this.
Knots is a custom ride/experience for Planet Coaster by Pixelated, the same creator responsible for the Limbo and Dream Sequencer-themed rides.
Note: the song and video below references and contains imagery about suicide.
Knots, named after the 2016 hip-hop song from George Watsky, takes the user through an almost pitch black experience while parts of the song are brought to life. The song itself is about Arthur Rubinstein, and comes from an album that tackles the concept of mortality, suicide and music through the 20th century pianist.
It is, for all intents and purposes, a music video in the form of a rollercoaster ride. And bloody hell is it effective. By blacking out the rest of the ride and environments, Pixelated is able to command and redirect your attention with the ebb and flow of the song. Also, it’s a fantastic piece of music, and this is a great way to enjoy it.
