Steve Tyler, as well as the rest of the band, will take you through the studio pre-show where Steve will tell you all about the invention and how you are about to test it out! Strobe effects, Lighting rigs, Projectors & smoke machines all add to the experience but the best part is the awesome soundtrack!!

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Tips
This ride features Fastpass & can have large queues at times. It’s worth noting that Fastpass users also see the pre-show on this ride so you don’t miss any aspect of the experience.
You must be over 120cm to ride Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. There is no age limit but it is advisable to only let children over 8 ride due to the intensity & inversions.
As with most coaster rides, riding at the back of the train feels fastest but the front row gives the best & clearest view of the effects
