Rock 'n' Roller Coaster is an indoor, high speed roller coaster. You enter the building and as part of the queue area you are in a tour of the fictional 'G-Force Records' production company. You see Aerosmith rehearsing in their studio before being told that their limo has arrived for their concert performance. But as their fans, they want to take you along, so order a super-strech limo just for you.
From here you continue queueing for a bit before boarding your 24-seater limo. You approach a dark tunnel with traffic lights and a countdown. As the timer hits zero, your car accelerates through the tunnel while playing some of Aerosmiths top songs. The ride takes you through a dark in-door ride where your car twists and turns at high speed. This is certainly not a ride for those easly affected by motion sickness, but is a very exciting ride no less.
In most cases, because of the ride's comfortable and cosy seating, you'll not be shaken about much at all, however some may still find it all a bit too much to handle.
If you're ok with the likes of Space Mountain and Expedition Everest, then you should be fine on Rock 'n' Roller Coaster.
This should be on your 'not to miss' list as its one of the parks best attractions, and one of the few true roller coasters in Disney World.
If you plan on riding both Rock 'n' Roller Coaster and the Tower of Terror during peak times, grab a fast pass for this one, and head to Tower of Terror. By the time you come out, your fast pass will likely be ready to use.
