Hey Aerosmith fans — it looks like you don’t have much time left to experience Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster at Walt Disney Studios at Disneyland Paris. Disneyland Paris recently published their refurbishment schedule, and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is on it…indefinitely.
Last December, Disney revealed new details of the Marvel-themed lands coming to Disneyland Resort in Anaheim and Walt Disney Studios at Disneyland Paris. And by the looks of the Disneyland Paris website, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster will be a part of the Walt Disney Studios transformation. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is scheduled for refurbishment from September 2019 onward with no end date. So if you’re a fan of the original theming, better walk this way before September.
This may be bad news for fans of the current theming, which mimics that of the attraction of the same name in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. But the idea of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster turning into an Avengers attraction is nothing new for those who have been following the Disneyland Paris expansion. Disney announced their plans for a Marvel-themed land quite some time ago, revealing in February 2018 that a reimagined Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster would be part of the two billion euro, multi-year expansion of Disneyland Paris.
But although this announcement is nothing new, the refurbishment schedule is. Originally, Disney announced that the development for the new lands at Disneyland Paris, including the Marvel-themed land at Walt Disney Studios, would roll out in phases beginning in 2021. Now that Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is scheduled for refurbishment in September 2019, it seems as though we may be seeing development earlier than anticipated. Disney hasn’t officially announced that the 2019 refurbishment of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is related to the Marvel expansion, but the two seem to add up.
One thing’s for sure: we’re totally excited for a unique Avengers-themed coaster to come to Disneyland Paris. Disney has described it as a high-speed adventure featuring Iron Man. What’s not to love?
