Get In Touch with Your Inner Thrill Seeking Rock Star on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith

If your idea of fun is a dark coaster that goes from 0 to 60 in just under three seconds, then the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios is the perfect attraction for you.

This dark coaster takes riders on a twisting, turning, and upside down "limo" ride on the way to the Aerosmith concert, and the attraction also features a rocking soundtrack by Aerosmith.

After queueing up for the ride outside, guests find themselves inside the offices of G-Force Records where Aerosmith is finishing up a recording session. Be sure to check out the posters on the walls as they feature current Disney recording artists.

As part of the pre-show for the ride, as guests watch Aerosmith and their recording engineer wrap up the session, the band's manager arrives and informs the band that they're late for a concert. And then guests learn that they'll be riding to the concert in in style via a super stretch limo.

The "limo" is out back in the alley where the queue continues for the attraction. As you're waiting for your limo you have a chance to see the other ride vehicles as they launch into the ride. This might be the point where your heart starts racing just a little bit.

Once you're loaded into the super stretch limo the ride vehicle stops at a tunnel entrance where the overhead sign displays different messages that lead into a countdown.

And then it happens. The limo is launched into the ride at 57 mph and you find yourself speeding through the ride's version of Los Angeles with Aerosmith music blaring from the speakers.

The ride takes you through three inversions including two rollover loops and one corkscrew loop.

The ride's vehicles feature 125 speakers and 24 subwoofers all wrapped up in a 32,000 watt audio system. And to keep things exciting, each limo features different Aerosmith songs so if you ride more than once in a day your experience might be a bit different.

Songs included on the attraction are: Walk This Way, Dude (Looks Like a Lady), Sweet Emotion, and Back in the Saddle. The band's hit Love in an Elevator was rewritten for the ride as Love on a Roller Coaster.

Katie and Geordon love this ride! However, it's a little too adventurous for me.
