When it comes to Walt Disney World attractions, routine maintenance is incredibly common, especially for roller coaster attractions. Rides such as Big Thunder Mountain and Space Mountain undergo refurbishments now and then to keep things running in tip-top shape.

Most recently, Hollywood Studios’ fan-favorite attraction, the Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, went down for refurbishment.

The roller coaster’s closure spanned over several months, closing in February of this year and opening just a few days ago. With such a lengthy refurbishment period, many fans were speculating whether the theme of this attraction would be the same when it reopened, especially due to certain controversies regarding Steven Tyler.

But when the Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster reopened to the public a few days ago, it still included Aerosmith.
