Sunday Spotlight: Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is an enclosed roller coaster currently found at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort. It also can be found at the Walt Disney Studios at Disneyland Paris. However, this version will be closing on September 1, 2019. The attraction features the music of Aerosmith as guests race through Los Angeles freeways in a stretch limo.

The first incarnation of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 29, 1999. The second one over at Disneyland Paris opened a year later on March 16, 2002. It will soon be replaced by a Marvel attraction. In 2007, the queue was modified to accommodate single rider and FASTPASS.

In the attraction, guests arrive as Aerosmith is finishing up a recording session and get backstage passes. Their manager tells them they are late for a concert that is across town. Of course, they don’t just leave by themselves, they invite the guests there to come along. The result is a race across town to the next gig in a long limousine with the band. While racing through town, music from the band is playing. Some of the songs that can be heard include “Walk This Way,” “Dude (Looks Like a Lady),” “Sweet Emotion” and “Back in the Saddle.” The classic “Love in an Elevator” was rewritten as “Love in a Roller Coaster” specifically for this Disney attraction. All of this is heard in the 125-speaker, 24-subwoofer, 32,000-watt audio system that is in each stretch limo.

This attraction is also a fast one. Billed as the fastest in France, it accelerates from 0 to 57 mph in 2.8 seconds. This gives riders a 5-G push back into their seats as they race through town. This is more G’s than a rocket launch. Throughout the attraction, guests are taken on 2 rollover loops and one corkscrew before returning to the VIP backstage area for the Aerosmith concert.
