Countdown to 2012 WDW Marathon Weekend #57

#57 - Disney's Hollywood Studios' Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
From the Walt Disney World website:
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, a high-speed roller coaster for big kids, teens and adults, is amplified by the driving beat of a soundtrack recorded by the rock group Aerosmith specifically for this attraction.

With the force of a supersonic F-14, accelerate from a stand-still stop to high speeds—then swoop into 3 -inversions and discover a new twist on viewing Los Angeles: upside-down!

Step into the G-Force Record studio where you see the 5 members of Aerosmith wrapping up a practice session before their big concert on the other side of town. The show starts soon, the band's late and their manager is trying to get them on the road. You're invited to come along. But how's everyone going to get to the big bash?

The solution: a super-stretch limousine that races across 3,400-feet of roller coaster tracks past Southern California landmarks and slices through the toughest of traffic on the LA freeways.

Each "car" is furnished with a 125 speaker, 24 sub-woofer, 32,000 watt, onboard audio system—built to blast. Careen through the neon-filled streets of Tinseltown, the rock 'n' roll adrenaline pumping through your veins, your body feeling the force from launch to loop at zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds. This is one limo ride you'll always remember!

Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith is sponsored by Hanes®, and is located next to The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction in the Sunset Boulevard area of Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park.

Why am I looking forward to Rock 'n' Roller Coaster?
First and foremost, I love the pre-show.  I think it's clever and fun and who wouldn't want to be invited to an Aerosmith concert complete with an amazing ride in a "SUPER STRETCH LIMO!"

Then there's the ride vehicles.  Roller coaster cars that look like those super stretch limos tauted in the pre-show - complete with awesome metallic paint.  You climb in to these cars, pull down the safety restraint, lean back in your seat and are surrounded by Aerosmith music - which song will you get this time?

The countdown begins and you are shot out on to the track like a bullet.  Don't forget to smile because your picture is being taken - one time while there with my niece and nephew we had to ride several times in order to get my niece to have her eyes open and not look like she was being tortured!

As roller coasters go, this amazing roller coast is inside in the dark with inversions!  Yes, this is one rockin' coaster and you have to try it to understand why it's so popular - super ride.
