Universal releases Hollywood Rip, Ride and Rockit coaster train photos
Universal Orlando has released a close-up photo of the ride vehicle for its new Hollywood Rip, Ride and Rockit
roller coaster, debuting next month at Universal Studios Florida.
You can see a 3D Flash graphic of the vehicle on Universal's website, as well.
The vehicles feature wrap-around 55-watt speakers, a music control panel on the lap bar, reverse POV video cameras mounted in the seatback in front of you, and LED lights alongside the train. Seat rows are raised in "stadium seating" style, as well.
I wonder if the interface allows you to change songs mid-ride ...
Any idea WHEN it's going to open next month? We're heading out that way July 30th and 31st, so hoping to get a chance to ride it. :D
Hearing that they're working on the lift hill - again. No word from the park on a media day yet, either. (Parks usually give at least two to three weeks' notice on those.)
That's a bad sign.
um looks uncomortable.....
Grrr, when is this coaster gonna open to the public? I have been eagerly waiting for RRR ever since I first saw the promo posters.
Im still shooting for a july 4th date...But so far nothig in the mail about a pass holders preview. Ill post it when I get it.
Supposedly, they have removed part of the lift hill in order to install an anti-rollback mechanism. No word if this work will delay the rumored opening.
Anyone hear about a setlist for this? I heard that they're will be 30 total but haven't heard any rumors about what they might be.
"Supposedly, they have removed part of the lift hill in order to install an anti-rollback mechanism."
Yeah, anti-rollback is a standard part of every lift coaster I know. Maybe they are swapping it?
Its was Great! I had the time of my
As of yesterday, June 7, the entire track is now off the lift hill. There is nothing there at all. A construction worker on site told me not to expect this ride to be operational until Labor Day. This is solely his personal opinion he stressed but by the looks of it his prediction seems reasonable.
I really can not believe how long it is taking! I was looking forward to going on the ride but looks like i have not chance! we fly out to orlando on monday and return back to uk 2 weeks later! I work within the heavey machine industry and i am a mechanical design and maintenance engineer and back in the uk if we had let something like this drag so long i dont think i would have a job! All i can think is the weather must be so bad that they carnt work on it! could someone maybe post and update every day untill sunday! cheers
