Top 10 Mind Blowing Facts About Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster

When people think about Walt Disney World the first thought that comes to mind is not typically thrill rides.  This does not mean that there are not some white knuckle rides waiting on you at many of the parks.  Today I will share 10 mind blowing facts about one of those rides… Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

10. Inversions

There are 3 inversions on Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster. An inversion is when the roller coaster turns the riders upside down and then returns them to their normal upright state.  You will experience two roll-over loops and one cork screw!  Challenge yourself to keep your hands up through all 3!

9. The Speakers

There are 120 speakers per stretch limo. Every rider will individually have two tweeters, two mid-range speakers, and one subwoofer mounted under their seat.  In total there are 32,000 powerful watts in each stretch limo!  You will feel like Steven Tyler is playing a concert in your seat!

8. The Track

The track that you are riding is more than a half mile long. The entire ride is only 1:22 long!  That is some serious SPEED!

7. Speed

As mentioned above, you are going pretty fast. You will go from 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds.  Talk about a huge adrenaline rush!  Make sure you listen to the warning and sit all the way back at launch.

6. Hidden Gems

In true Walt Disney fashion there are several hidden gems in Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster. Pay very close attention to the license plates on the stretch limos.  Some examples of what you might see are 2FAST4U, BUHBYE, and H8TRFFC.  Each stretch limo also plays different Aerosmith tracks.  If you are on one that plays “Love in an elevator” pay close attention as the ride is ending, the lyrics change to “love in a roller coaster”.

5. The Recording Studio

You will see a short display of Aerosmith in a recording studio before getting on the ride. The recording studio’s name is G-Force Records.  This is a very appropriate name because when you take off you will experience 4-5 G’s!

4. Fast

With speeds reaching 60mph this is the fastest ride in Hollywood Studios and the second fastest in all of Disney World. In my opinion it feels like you are going so much faster!  The only ride faster is Test Track in Epcot.

3. Great Photo Op

There is a 40 ft. tall electric guitar in front of this amazing attraction. It is a Fender Stratocaster for all of our music nerds out there.  There is never a time that fellow Disney enthusiasts are not out in front of this massive guitar taking advantage of this photo op!  Go out and make your best rock star pose and snap a picture of a great memory!

2. Save Time

In a hurry? Who doesn’t want to save time at Disney World?  At Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster you can take advantage of the single rider line.  If you are by yourself or you are willing to split your party up, this is a great way to feel all the thrills and save time like a rock star!

1. Opening

Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster opened in July of 1999.   Aerosmith attended the opening ceremony of the attraction.  In addition to making an appearance at the opening ceremony, the five members of Aerosmith teamed up with Imagineers to create this amazing thrill ride.  In 2002 Rock ‘N’ Rollercoaster opened in Disneyland Paris and holds the title of the fastest roller coaster in France!

About Brandon Blanchard

Brandon Blanchard has been married for 11 years and has 5 children. All 7 of us are HUGE Disney NUTS! We recently relocated to Tampa, Florida. We are now annual pass holders and stop in at least once a week. My wife talked me into going to Disney in 2010 with our then four children, 8 and under. I originally said “Okay, we will go once. Do I really need to spend a WHOLE week of vacation time?” When I walked into the Magic Kingdom for the first time, I looked at my wife, Stephanie, and started a sentence with “When we come back…” I was hooked. Disney World is our happy place and can make everything right! When I am not at Disney World with my family, my wife and I also have our own Vlog on YouTube. I am always discussing Disney with my friends and co-workers. I love giving people insights to help them create the most magical experience their family can have! Professionally I am a manager for a financial institution. I am very blessed to work a 4x10 schedule that allows me a day off during the week to take the family to Disney! Our homeschooled children think it is SO COOL that they go to theme parks while others are in their classrooms.
