Hollywood Studios Attraction Continues to Face Prolonged Downtime

in Walt Disney World

It looks like 2021 isn’t the year for Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster as we are already at January 3 and the popular attraction has yet to open.

Yesterday, January 2, we reported that Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster was experiencing technical difficulties, not allowing it to operate for Guests visiting the theme parks. Today, January 3, it looks like it is continuing to experience these technical difficulties — according to the My Disney Experience app, the attraction is still listed as temporarily closed.

At this time we aren’t sure what is causing this prolonged downtime, but Disney Parks attractions can experience technical difficulties from time to time. Inside the Magic will continue to update you as we get information regarding this popular ride at Disney World.

In case you aren’t familiar, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is a high-speed coaster at Walt Disney World that brings Guests on a high-speed “tour” of Hollywood as they must get to Aerosmith’s concert on time.

The official description reads:

Inside their Hollywood music studio, legendary rock band Aerosmith is wrapping up a recording session. When their manager tells them they’re late for a concert across town, the band invites you to ride along.Hop into their gleaming limousine and speed off into the night as Aerosmith’s hard-rock harmonies fill the air. Buckle up before zooming through the city on this roller-coaster style attraction.

Rock this Way
