They haven’t said if they are making any changes to the thrill ride, so it’s safe to assume this will be a routine maintenance check.

An Overview of Rock’ n’ Roller Coaster

Rock’ n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith is one of Disney’s more exhilarating rides. This extreme coaster is teamed with the exciting sound of America’s legendary rock band, Aerosmith, creating a high-speed thrill ride that will literally rock ‘n’ roll guests.

This indoor roller coaster features a high-speed launch of 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds, three inversions, rock-concert lighting, and a specially created Aerosmith soundtrack blasting from 120 onboard speakers in each coaster train — all firsts for a Walt Disney World attraction.

Rock’ n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, located near The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror on Sunset Boulevard, represents yet another breakthrough in Disney theme park rides. Guests board a “limo” and blast off- you’re rockin’ at five Gs as you head to the first upside-down loop on the track. By comparison, astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle experience three Gs at liftoff.

If you plan on visiting during the closure, there are plenty of thrilling attractions at Hollywood Studios, like the Tower of Terror and Rise of the Resistance. Is Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster a must-do for you?
