Musical Road in Lancaster

Oh, the musical road of Lancaster, what is there to say about you. I was very excited to conquer your quarter-mile of road but left slightly unimpressed. Anyways, when researching Lancaster I found this road and apparently this is the only musical road in the entire United States. By musical road I mean a road that literally has grooves cut into it and plays the William Tell Overture as you drive over it. This sounded awesome to me so I set out to try it.

After getting off on Avenue G I proceeded West to the start of the road. There is a sign that lets you know you are going the right way.

A mile later another sign states that the song is starting. Excitedly I drove over it, and almost immediately I had not idea what song it was playing. I heard the faint sounds of music but did not hear what I anticipated to be the song.

I figured that I probably was driving too fast so I made a u-turn and went back to try again. Here is the video if you want to hear what I did.

After that I stopped to check out the road grooves themselves then just headed on to my next stop.

I appreciate what they were doing here but unfortunately it was lost on me. If anyone knows the correct speed to drive it let me know, and I am happy to stand corrected if someone has a better video of the experience.
