Rock n' Roller Coaster reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Rock n' Roller Coaster, a roller coaster in Sunset Boulevard at Disney's Hollywood Studios. (The minimum height to ride is 48 inches.)

An indoor coaster featuring on-board music from rock n' roll supergroup Aerosmith.
You venture into the G-Force Records building, only to meet Aerosmith in a practice session! Their agent tells them they have to leave for a concert across town, but the band feels bad for just leaving all of you there. Their agent summons a "Super-Stretch Limo" to take you there.
You then leave to an alley behind the studio, where your super-stretch simo turns the comes, ready to take you to your destination. The coaster then blasts off, from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.8 seconds, putting up to 5 G's on the riders. It has a fast take-off, loud rocking music, and 3 loops!
It's a wild ride to the concert, where a red carpet greets you.
Good launch and theme. I particularly liked that the trains were limos. Glad Disney has a more adult coaster available. The track itself was very smooth, and I enjoyed that it was indoors (I usually do not). (9/10) - Lexi R
Great ride! Amazing first launch and very well themed when it exists. It would be nice if it were more intense toward the end...9/10. - David L.
My first adult coaster. While not exactly up there with some of Disney's best, I still appreciate their work at making an adult thrill ride not based on one of their properties. 7/10 - Christopher Sturniolo
This is a really fun and great coaster. It certainately not to be missed at all while you;re visiting Hollywood Studios. The only drawback of this Coaster is the queue. Other than that it is a top notch thrill. - Justin Knight
First part is awesome!! But it turns into the 60s with some loops and rolls etc. - B Higgins
A good, but overrated attraction, the coaster really peters out after the initial launch. The theming is also barebones and similar to the coaster portion of Revenge of the Mummy. - Sean Huckel
Fun ride but way too short. Although the best part of the ride is the beginning, I love the black-lights at the end. For those who have lived in LA, it's fun to jump around all the normally traffic jammed freeways. Hit this ride is the morning before the lines get too long. - Mickey Black
Super fun! Best Disney coaster for sure! What's better than a awesomely themed coaster in the dark with rock music and a 60 MPH launch? - Bryce McGibeny
