Inside the Ride

It’s not everyday you get to rock out with one of the most legendary bands of all time. But at Disney’s Hollywood Studios ® you can do it all day long on the thrill ride Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith. This unique roller coaster appeals to both the adventure seeker and the rocker as you blast off in a super-stretch limousine through the darkened freeways of Los Angeles while rockin’ to Aerosmith’s biggest hits.

But before you can “live on the edge,” Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith begins in the queue area where you’ll enter the offices and recording studios of the famed record label G-Force Records, whose lobby is decorated with posters from real acts signed to labels owned by Walt Disney World Company ®. It’s here that guests will bump into Aerosmith, who are wrapping up a recording session. And yes, it really is all five members of Aerosmith behind the glass! But just when you think you’ll get the opportunity to hear the band’s recording session, their manager informs them that they’re late for a concert on the other side of town. Steven Tyler, who feels bad they can’t stay and chat with their fans then requests backstage passes for the entire group and you’re invited on a high-speed thrill ride to try and get to the concert on time.

The band then departs and you’re ushered into an alley into a parking garage. It’s here where you’ll get to witness just how thrilling the ride is as you watch other rider’s board the stretch limos and speed off into the L.A. night. Then it’s your turn to board the stretch limo for the trip across town.

The super-stretch limo is decked out with a 125-speaker, 24-sub woofer, 32,000-watt audio system that pumps out classic Aerosmith songs as you fly through the L.A. night along a 3,400-foot-track. As you sing your way through the city you’ll pass the famous Hollywood sign; Los Angeles freeways, including Interstate 5, Interstate 10 and U.S. Route 101 among other famous landmarks all while slicing through the busy L.A. traffic and swooping in and around three inversions, 2 rollover loops and one corkscrew! But perhaps the biggest thrill of the ride comes at the very beginning when you accelerate from 0 to 57 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds with the force of a supersonic F-14!

So what kind of songs can you expect to rock out to during this high-speed coaster? Only Aerosmith’s biggest and best hits including:

   • "Walk This Way”

   • “Dude (Looks Like a Lady)”

   • “Sweet Emotion”

   • “Back in the Saddle”

Additionally, the song “Love in an Elevator” has been rewritten to “Love in a Roller Coaster” specifically for this attraction.
