Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith

Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith

An Attraction in Hollywood Studios

Last updated: April 16, 2024

This attraction is currently closed!
It is scheduled to re-open in Summer 2024.
At a Glance

Way wilder than Space Mountain or Big Thunder Mountain in the Magic Kingdom, Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster is an attraction for fans of high-speed thrill rides. Although the presence of Aerosmith and the synchronized music add measurably to the experience, the ride itself is what you’re here for. Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster’s loops, corkscrews, and drops make Space Mountain seem like It’s a Small World. What really makes this metal coaster unusual, however, is that first, it’s in the dark (like Space Mountain, only with Southern California nighttime scenes instead of space), and second, you’re launched up the first hill like a jet off a carrier deck. By the time you crest the hill, you’ll have gone from 0 to 57 mph in less than 3 seconds. When you enter the first loop, you’ll be pulling 5 g’s—2 more than astronauts used to experience at liftoff on a space shuttle.

Reader opinions of Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster are predictably mixed, and invariably colored by how the reader feels about roller coasters. First, from a mother of two from High Mills, New York:

You can’t warn people enough about Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster. My daughter and I refused to go on it at all. My 9-year-old son, who had no problems with any ride, including Tower of Terror, went on with my husband and came off so shaken he was “done for” the rest of the day. My husband just closed his eyes and hoped for the best.

From a Longmont, Colorado, dad:

The first 15 seconds are spectacular. I’ve never experienced anything like the initial take-off.

From an Australian couple who traveled a long way to ride a coaster:

My wife and I are definitely not roller-coaster people. However, we found Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster quite exhilarating—and because it’s dark, we didn’t always realize that we were being thrown upside down. We rode it twice!

Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster is not for everyone—if Space Mountain or Big Thunder pushes your limits, skip it. The attractions in Galaxy’s Edge, along with Slinky Dog Dash and Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, draw crowds away from Rock ’n’ Roller Coaster. If you can’t ride first thing in the morning, waits after 4 p.m. should be manageable.
