Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

March 2, 2011

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a theme park devoted to show business, so Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster fits in perfectly. It stars the rock band Aerosmith who are late for a show. Then you are blasted off for the ride.

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is an indoor ride so, from the outside, you have no idea what you are getting in to. As you approach the building that contains it you notice a large, electric guitar near the entrance and an upside-down car.  Once inside you can see how it is made to look like a recording studio in Los Angelis. Like most Disney attractions, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster has a pre-show where you get informed on what the story of the ride is. On Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster it is that Aerosmith is late for a show and they need to get there quickly, however you are on a tour of their recording studio and they don’t want to leave you so they decide that you should come to the show too. Their manager gets you an extra large limo and tells us that we should hurry because we might be late. Anyway you board the trains that look like limos in an alley behind the studio (these are equipped with on board sound systems). Once in, we make a quick turn before they start the countdown from five. At one a light flashes green and we shoot forward into the dark. We feel ourselves flip through the darkness and sometimes see landmarks from around Los Angelis. At one point we fly through a giant doughnut. All along the way Aerosmith music is playing from the speakers that are on the ride. The ride is over all to soon and we get out in a fancy room that leads to a gift shop and the exit. Xpress has the same layout as Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster but it is outdoors.

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is kind of short, However the soundtrack is nice and it isn’t too bumpy. I am giving it a 7 out of 10.

Have you been on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster? What do you think? Please Comment. Thanks for reading. 🙂

    I rode Rock’n’Roller Coaster twice about a month ago while my family was in Florida.
    First thing: Try to get the front row! I rode once in row 4 and once up front. The front is ten times better, especially during the launch.:)
    My scaredy-cat sis rode the first time with my mom and sorta liked it, but then wouldn’t ride it again either.:P
    I didn’t bang my head at all, but I know the lady who ended up next to me the first time did. She was rubbing her neck and ears when we got off. So I think maybe you actually NEED to brace your head to enjoy the ride, which I was already doing ‘just in case’.:)
    I thought it was fun to watch the trains before ours launch, but don’t do that if you’re even a little hesitant to ride. My sis almost psyched herself out of riding by doing that.;)
    My quibble with the ride is that it’s way too short! 88 seconds just isn’t long enough IMO.:) And does it really pull 4.5 g’s? It doesn’t seem like it to me. If it really pulls that many g’s, it must be for about 1/2 a second or something.;)

    My rating: 9.5/10 (Docked for being too short)
