Rock 'n' Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith

Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith is a high speed attraction that combines the white knuckle thrills of a roller coaster with a pulsating musical soundtrack provided by one of the world's top rock and roll bands, the legendary Aerosmith.

V.I.P. Guests
The attraction is set in Tour de Force Records, a cutting edge record company with state of the art recording and research facilities.   Guests are V.I.P. visitors on a tour of the record company premises.  As they join the queuing area, guests enter a round room lined with thematically styled guitar-neck columns and record posters beneath a ceiling crowned with a giant overhead CD.  Stepping through the lobby, guests enter the "Artists Entrance" and pass by two recording studios (Studios A & B).  Muffled sounds of music coming from both studios A and B show that recording sessions are taking place.

The Aerosmith Musical Experience
A tour guide meets guests in the lobby of Studio C.  As they are escorted into the studio, guests discover that the members of Aerosmith are, in fact, in the studio control room.  As the doors to Studio C close behind them, the tour guide explains that Aerosmith are putting the finishing touches to a "revolutionary musical experience".  The band themselves then invite their V.I.P. guests to be among the very first to experience it.
Guests leave studio C and enter the research and development studio of Tour de Force Records. As they enter, guests see a sound engineer busily working on the 'experience' audio soundtrack.  Video monitors showing computer models of the attraction's ride systems also feature in this area where guests see and hear audio and lighting tests as they prepare to launch. 

Ride the Music
Guests board the high tech prototype vehicles known as "Soundtrackers". Each Soundtracker is equipped with a state-of-the-art sound system consisting of five speakers per seat.  Once on board, they hear an engineer and Aerosmith's lead singer, Steven Tyler, completing the "sound check".  A final countdown is heard before guests are blasted into the middle of a pulsating rock music video.  Aerosmith's upbeat music comes together with lighting and motion to create a rock 'n' roll ride experience where guests literally 'ride the music'.

Tips & Fun Facts

Most of the pre-show dialogue is in French, but all of the ride songs are in English.

Steven Tyler and Joe Perry re-recorded certain vocals and guitar riffs especially for the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith.  These changes, which cannot be heard anywhere else other than at the attraction, include new lyrics to classic Aerosmith songs, such as “Love in an Elevator” (now “Love in a Roller Coaster”) and “What Kind of Love Are You On?” (now “What Kind of Ride Are You On?”)
There are five different musical concepts played in the Soundtracker vehicles, meaning that guests can 'ride' five different types of music when experiencing the attraction.
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith is the fastest roller coaster ever built for a Disney theme Park.  It can reach 100 kilometres per hour in 2.8 seconds, and features two loops, inversions and a corkscrew.
Riders experience 4 to 5 Gs as they enter the first inversion, more than an astronaut does on a space shuttle launch.
The footage of Aerosmith in Studio C was filmed with 70mm film recorded at 60 frames per second, compared to standard 35mm film, which is recorded at 24 frames a second.
The length of the track is 3,403 feet (1,037.2 m)
The layout and music are the same as the Walt Disney World version of the ride. But instead of limos, the ride vehicles are Soundtrackers, and instead of road signs there are hundreds of lasers.
The record company is called "Tour de Force Records."
The colour schemes of the soundtrackers and music tracks in each are:
Soundtracker 1 - Green/Yellow -Back in Saddle/ Dude (Looks Like a Lady)
Soundtracker 2 - Pink - Young Lust / F.I.N.E. / Love in a Roller Coaster
Soundtracker 3 - Multicoloured - Love in a Roller Coaster / Walk This Way
Soundtracker 4 - Red - Nine Lives
Soundtracker 5 - Blue - Sweet Emotion (live)
An outdoor version of the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, featuring the same track layout and ride system is Xpress, which can be found at Walibi World in the Netherlands.
