An iconic attraction at Walt Disney World Resort didn’t open this morning and mysteriously remains closed with no explanation.

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith did not open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this morning and has remained closed. The attraction suffered an unexpected multi-day closure back in January but has been open regularly since that point.

WDW Stats reported this morning that the attraction had experienced a delay this morning when the Disney Park opened and, at this point, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith remains closed, according to the My Disney Experience App.

While the attraction has yet to open, it should be noted that WDW Stats also notes that all Lightning Lane passes for the coaster have been given away. This means you can no longer make a reservation to get in the Lightning Lane for Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster today.

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.
