Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, commonly refered to as "Rock 'n' Roller Coaster," is a launched indoor sit down roller coaster located at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The ride was opened in 1999, with an on-ride soundtrack.  The Rock 'n' Roller Coaster is the only looping roller coaster at Disney World.

DesignEdit

After winding through a shaded outdoor queue, guests enter the offices and recording studios of record label G-Force Records (a 68,131 sq ft (6,329.6 m2) building), whose lobby is decorated with posters of real artists signed to Disney Music Group labels.

Next, guests are led into a room looking into the recording studio, where the five members of the hit band Aerosmith are shown finishing a recording session with a recording engineer played by Ken Marino. The group's manager, portrayed by Illeana Douglas, enters and informs them that they're late for a concert.[1] Lead singer Steven Tyler expresses regret at being forced to leave the band's fans and requests backstage passes for the entire group. The band then departs by limousine to "the Forum" (a reference to a famous Los Angeles concert venue). The harried manager summons a "super stretch" limo, to carry guests to the concert and directs them outside.

Guests exit the recording studio and pass through an alley into a parking garage, owned by "Lock 'n' Roll Parking Systems". In here, guests waiting in line can see the ride's launch and sharp-eyed guests can spot the curtains in above 'apartment windows', sway from the 'force', caused by the launch. Guests then board a waiting 24 seat stretch limo for the trip across town to the concert.

After loading passengers, the "limo" stops at the entrance to a tunnel. Music is playing and an overhead variable message sign displays a series of several different messages until a countdown. After the countdown, the car is then shot into the tunnel at 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) and the souvenir photo is taken. The roller coaster goes through three inversions, one of which is a Sea Serpent Roll (Vekoma, Roll Over), (half loop, half corkscrew, half corkscrew, half loop) and one of which is a corkscrew on a winding track, intended to represent various Los Angeles Area Freeways, including Interstate 5Interstate 10 and U.S. Route 101, as evident by the street signs that periodically appear on the side of the coaster. The attraction ends when the limo arrives at Aerosmith's concert backstage, letting guests off onto a red carpet.

While considered "extreme", Rock 'n' Roller Coaster has been described by roller coaster enthusiasts as being smoother, less jerkier and less uncomfortable than some similar extreme roller coasters.

As of July 2008, Hanes is the attraction's presenting sponsor.
