5 Reasons We Love Rockin’ Roller Coaster
By: Alexandra Blazevich
I have to be honest. Before I rode Rockin’ Roller Coaster for the first time as an 8-year-old, I had no clue who Aerosmith was. Now, I am very thankful for the experience, because I learned how awesome their music is –especially when you’re going 60 mph on a roller coaster with their music blasting in your ears. Here are my top five reasons why I will always love Rockin’ Roller Coaster.
1. The music:
It doesn’t get better than rock-and-roll and roller coasters. From the time you enter the recording studio doors, you’re immersed in the history of rock music, Aerosmith’s in particular. You’ll pass microphones, guitars, posters and amps from the days of old before stepping into a room where the band itself is busy recording in their sound booth. Their band manager hooks you up with a ride to their concert and you’ll jam out to Aerosmith classics the whole way there.
2. The “take-off:”
This ride does not waste any time to get going. Your super-stretch limo goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds –faster than any other roller coaster in Walt Disney World. So, when you hear Steven Tyler scream “3, 2, 1,” be ready to hold on!
3. The theming:
Once your speed off in your limo car, you enter a world of larger-than-life Hollywood icons. You’ll pass through Planet Hollywood, a super-sized Hollywood sign and a huge donut –my personal favorite part- all while skipping the Los Angeles traffic! The ride finishes at the entrance to the concert, where you roll up in style –windblown hair style included.
4. The intensity:
Rockin’ Roller Coaster is the only roller coaster in Walt Disney World that goes upside down. In fact, it goes upside down a few times with various corkscrews and loops. When I was eight, I had one of those awesome chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches Disney used to have at their ice cream carts before riding. Luckily I have a strong stomach. If you don’t, I recommend waiting to eat after the ride. Also, Disney should really bring those back, just saying.
5. The single-rider line:
If Rockin’ Roller Coaster is nothing new to you or if you just happen to be the brave one in your family, you may want to consider taking advantage of the single-rider line. Your wait is typically shorter in this line, but it just depends on what size groups are in the regular stand-by line. All in all, it’s a great way to meet other Disney and Aerosmith fans!
