It has been a while since we saw the facade of Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith revealed, as it has been under refurbishment for quite some time.

The biggest draw that the attraction has begins at the entryway with the upsidedown coaster, which has a track that leads you to the front of the attraction queue. There, Guests are typically greeted with a massive rose-red guitar that has you wondering what kind of coaster you are about to ride. For months, the facade was covered by scrim as Disney re-worked the look, but it is once again available for Guests to see, enjoy, and take photos in front of!

Drew (@DrewDisneyDude) recently took to Twitter to post the scrim coming down from the guitar! We can see that it is once again lit up, pulling in Guests even when it gets dark, and creating quite the spectacle.

The Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster guitar refurbishment is almost complete.

As of this morning, Guests can see the entire guitar without any scrim in the way, which is great news! Prior to the guitar receiving a refurbishment, we saw the Aerosmith poster, which sits next to it, swapped out for a more vibrant and less sun-damaged version.

Although Aerosmith is still plastered everywhere on the attraction, the merchandise for the attraction no longer states the band’s name. Many Disney fans have speculated that once the rights are expired, that Disney would swap to a new attraction, but as we can see from the time and money spent on fixing up the current version, which fits Aerosmith theming, it does not look like Disney wants to make any massive changes to the attraction in the near future. In Disneyland Paris, the ride is being rethemed to become an Iron Man coaster in the new Avengers Campus.
