Walt Disney World Resort Guests are finally set to walk this way right back to enjoy Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The popular coaster attraction, located off Sunset Boulevard in Disney’s Hollywood Studios next to Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, has been mysteriously closed for nearly a week, but we have good news to report.

Disney’s official description of the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith reads:

Live Life in the Fast Lane

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
Speed through iconic Hollywood landmarks. Maneuver past traffic jams and swoop into 3 thrilling inversions—2 rollover loops and one corkscrew—as the wind races across your face.

Will you make it to the year’s biggest concert in time?

State-of-the-Art Sound

Your super-stretch limo is decked out with a 125-speaker, 24-subwoofer, 32,000-watt audio system.

Each vehicle broadcasts different Aerosmith hit songs, including “Walk This Way,” “Dude (Looks Like a Lady),” “Sweet Emotion” and “Back in the Saddle.” The classic “Love in an Elevator” was rewritten as “Love in a Roller Coaster” specifically for this rocktastic attraction.

This wassn’t the first speedbump Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster has experienced with the future of the attraction seemingly in limbo with rumors of a re-theme. Many Disney Park Guests have also shared their frustrations with the new Disney Genie+ and Lightning Lane services, which debuted last year.

While you are at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can enjoy Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith on Sunset Boulevard. By the Chinese Theater, Guests prepare to ride Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. In Toy Story Land, Slinky Dog Dash always boasts a long line with others shooting their shot on Midway Mania or spinning their brains out on Alien Swirling Saucers. Of course, you have to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for some blue milk, or green milk, and ride Rise of the Resistance and Smuggler’s Run!
