Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
Experience Disney’s first high-speed coaster launch. Hurtle through twists, 4–5G turns, and three inversions (yes, upside down)—in the dark! Rock band Aerosmith invites you to take a limo crosstown and join them backstage. Aerosmith also provides the soundtrack for your ride—five different tunes are possible depending upon which “limo” you get. Upon boarding, we recommend you press your head against the headrest to prepare for the very fast start (0–58 in 2.8 seconds). Beyond that, this may be the smoothest coaster you ever ride—even the coaster-shy have enjoyed it. Interactive indoor queue area takes you through a recording studio’s display of historic memorabilia. Take the single rider line for a shorter wait, or the “chicken exit” if you just want to enjoy the queue. 48”/122 cm height restriction. Transfer from ECV to wheelchair, and then transfer from wheelchair to ride. Alex’s KidTip: “Just no.” Allie’s KidTip: “You won’t believe how fast it goes! Make sure your stuff is safe.” TweenTip: “The loops are my favorite!” TeenTip: “This ride rocks!”Get a full copy of PassPorter's Walt Disney World guidebook here.

We love RNRC. It is so much fun. Awesome Aerosmith background music. Although we love it. My son who is 9 is not a fan of roller coasters that go backwards. He goes on another ride with everyone else.

My husband's rating because I don't do coasters (fear of drops): "One of the best rides in all of WDW. Smooth coaster, good music, fun! The queue is fun too."

One of my favorite roller coasters. I use the single rider line-my DH can't take the inversions.

Ride during Extra Magic Hour!

Love it! Such a smooth (fast) ride! Just a bit too loud with the speakers right by your ears.

Could use an updated queue. Pretty bad when you have to wait for over an hour. Would give a 10 if they figured that out.

Theming is great, although starting to get a little dated. First 5 seconds are worth the wait, after that it is a very average coaster.

If you are into thrill rides, this is great. The concept and theming are really fun and the take-off is awesome. Not for the faint of heart though!

A surprise hit with my coaster-hating hubby last year! He rode it several times, and just LOVED it!

Best roller coaster at Disney...probably the only "true" one they have.

This is by far our favorite roller coaster attraction at any of the Disney Parks - Disneyland or Disney World. Love the neon and the dark. Very smooth coaster too

Super fun roller coaster for thrill seekers - 0 to 60 start and upside down cork screw will get your screams going! Definite ride every time I am in the parks!

Favorite coaster ever!!! This might actually be my favorite attraction at WDW.

This is one of the only 4 rides we have to do more than once when in Disney for a week. It is fast and loud but thrilling and immersive.

Love everything about this ride, from the pre-show to the theming to the music that plays as you ride. Just wish it was longer.
