If you happened to be at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Saturday, you may just have had the opportunity to see Steven Tyler walking through the line of Rocking Rollercoaster! Apparently Saturday was Tyler’s birthday, and he decided to check in on “his” ride at Hollywood Studios to celebrate.
“JUST CHECKING IN ON MY ROCKIN ROLLERCOASTER! STILL THE BEST RIDE IN THE PLACE,” the Aerosmith frontman and “American Idol” judge shared on his official Facebook & Instagram pages.
Tyler turned 68 Saturday, and we sure think riding a roller-coaster named after you is a great way to spend the day!!
The Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith opened in 1999. The indoor dark coaster launches riders 0-57 mph in 2.8 seconds while listening to Aerosmith hits.
Holograms of Tyler and the rest of the band are featured in the pre-ride show, where guests get a short “meet-and-greet” with the band before their manager rushes them off to a concert. Tyler then suggests to give guests a ride to their show and backstage passes.
Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is the fastest coaster at Walt Disney World and the second fastest attraction, behind Epcot‘s Test Track.
