One of Universal Studio’s newest roller coasters, Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit is a guest favorite as it gives park-goers a customizable experience that no other ride in Universal can. Along with cutting-edge technology and never-before experienced twists and turns like the Double Take, the world’s largest non-inverted loop; the Treble Clef, where guests bursts through a building façade on a track shaped like the music symbol; and the Jump Cat, a spiraling, negative-gravity move; Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit allows guests to choose the type of music and exact song they want to hear as they fly 65 miles per hour through the air.
Using a personal touch-pad mounted on the ride vehicles, Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit riders choose form five genres of music that include Rock/Metal, Rap/Hip-Hop, Club/Electronica, Pop/Disco or Country and feature the latest and the legendary musicians from the music world including The Black Eyed Peas, No Doubt, Kanye West, Evanescence, N.E.R.D., Montgomery Gentry, Donna Summer and more. To ensure guests get the ultimate sound quality while soaring through the air, each ride vehicle is equipped with individual stereo speakers that pump out 90 decibels of music that, believe it or not you and only you can hear.
And as if that wasn’t exciting enough, Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit will even capture your musical journey in a custom-made music video available for purchase after the ride. The song you choose will become the background of a music video that features you as you scream and rock your way through the thrilling coaster. Make sure you smile as 14 on- and off-board cameras capture your excitement and terror as you dip, dive, twist and turn your way through the technologically thrilling ride. The video mixes that footage with your selected song and special effects for a unique take-home memento of your experience.
So how does it all work? The adventure begins as you step into the specially designed X-CAR. The vehicle features stadium-style seating with a revolutionary lap bar that allows for freedom of movement. Once strapped in, you’ll use your touch pad to choose the song you want to listen to during the ride. Then hold on tight for a ride that rocks you both in sound and in thrills!
