Rock 'n' Roller Coaster | #MagicalMickey

Welcome back to another edition of the Magical Mickey linkup: the linkup centering around a love for Disney, sharing that love and connecting with others. I hope you find this linkup as a great place to turn to for Disney content each week and help all the bloggers participating out by helping readers find that great mouse-eared content. I'm co-hosting with Katie from Adventures by Katie, so of course check her blog out.

I previously wrote a post about a ride I love, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin. I decided to write the second of the posts by moving onto another park. We'll be heading off to Disney's Hollywood Studios. I'll be talking about...

Rock 'n' Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith

This is one of the more popular rides at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Rock 'n' Roller Coaster is an indoor roller coaster through the dark, combined with bright neon lights and the music of Aerosmith. The premise is you're on a backstage tour and then need to rush to make it to the concert. You hop in a super stretch limo, go zero to 60 and through 3 inversions to arrive on time.

To start, the theming on the ride is, as always with a Disney ride, fantastic. Outside you have the super-stretch limo as well as a giant guitar, perfect for some rocking photo ops. You enter in G-Force Records to tour as the band is finishing recording some tracks. As you enter, look for a hidden Mickey in the tile floor. I'll look for a picture of it from my hard drives of pictures and update if I come across it. After the video scene with Aerosmith, you go out the side door into the alley to catch your ride. Here, you get a great view of the ride start, which if you fail to mention to someone on their first time can be heart pumping, either the good or bad kind, haha.

I love a good roller coaster. The Rock 'n' Roller Coaster is a fun ride. The quick start is a good jump, and the overall ride is fun. The speed of the coaster makes for a thrilling ride, but also a quick ride. It's unfortunate too, the roll overs and corkscrews are a lot of fun, as is speeding through the fun signs, but its over too quickly. It's worth the ride, and I always try to ride it, but I won't wait in a long standby line for it. That's just me personally.

Do you love coasters? What do you think of Rock 'n' Roller Coaster?

Onto the Linkup

Here are the guidelines:

The post just needs to be about anything Disney related. There have been posts on runDisney, on the parks and even on the Moms Panel, so just give it some Disney and count it.

New posts are fantastic, but for now, if you have a great old post you want to share, drop it on in.

Try to visit as many of the posts that you can as time allows. The point of this is to share and support each other.

If you're going to be a regular, please link back to the host posts. It's just good etiquette and frankly, that's how others will get to your fellow Disney lovers content. Without that link back, they can't find the linkup and therefore the other blogs. Help me help you.

You also have the option to add the linkup code to your post if you'd like. It is not required, just another option. If not, please follow the above link back guideline. Get the InLinkz code


  1. Ahhhhh..... I love this ride. so fun!

    1. It is a lot of fun. And who doesn't love some rock music on a roller coaster?

  2. John - how would you rate it against Space Mountain?

    1. Different experiences. Rock 'n' Roller Coaster is more your traditional roller coaster ride: fast paced, rolls and big turns but with the added element of inside with dark except for lit elements. Space Mountain is still quick with hills and alls, but has some more tight turns. They're both good in their own right, but different styles of coaster. I like them both, RnRC is more of a "thrill ride" coaster. Both are rated high in my book, but for different reasons.
