Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster Completes Soft Opening Period, Now Officially Added to Hollywood Studios Lineup

    Following a few days of soft opening, Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith is now officially open after Disney removed the refurbishment message from the website and added operating hours. Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster had been closed since February as crews worked on the ride system and a visual refresh for the attraction.

    During the downtime, there was speculation that the roller coaster would receive a new theme, dropping Aerosmith and going with something new. Ultimately, that proved to be fan fodder and the attraction reopened a few days ago as part of a soft opening with the Aerosmith theme intact. Crews worked on the ride system to help increase reliability, and a refresh of the blacklight paint and lighting system has made the attraction much more vibrant than before it closed earlier this year.

    Disney has not only updated the theme park operating hours for the attraction but also confirmed that it will participate in the final few Disney After Hours special-ticketed events.
