Rock 'n' Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith is a launched indoor roller coaster located at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, USA. The ride was opened in 1999, with an on-ride soundtrack. A similar ride opened at Walt Disney Studios Park on March 16, 2002, but will become a Marvel themed coaster in 2020.

History[edit | edit source]

Construction on the ride began in February 1998, with cast member previews and a soft opening initially held in June 1999. The grand opening of the ride took place on July 29, 1999, with a special, invitation-only party, with Aerosmith as the guests of honor. Winners were taken to Disney's Hollywood Studios in stretch limousines and were treated to an all-you-can-eat buffet and bar. After a special performance by painter Denny Dent, winners got the chance to ride the roller coaster with one of the Aerosmith band members. At the exit of the ride, outside of the gift shop, there hangs a picture from the special event. The paintings Denny Dent made of the five band members hang in various employee office locations on Walt Disney World property.

The soundtrack was recorded by the rock band Aerosmith.[1] The trains are giant "limos".
