    I read an article in the New York Times today about all the money Disney is investing in the parks, particularly Hollywood Studios. They displayed a map of where all the changes are being made and they had Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster flagged.

    I thought it be fun to play Imagineer and hear what we’d all like to see this re-imagined as… if we’d like to see one at all.

    Personally, I think it’d be fun if they had an Indiana Jones Roller Coaster, like the one they have in Disneyland Paris. I could totally imagine them having it indoors, using the same track and they could even have it as a “dark” roller coaster. Take some of the ideas they have from the Disneyland Indiana Jones Adventure attraction but make it a roller coaster.

    What would you like to see replace Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster??

    I think it would be cool if they had a Disney Junior ride. For all the littles. They would have to slow it down obviously, but they really should have something that caters to DJ kids. :)

    I’ve never ridden that ride because it is too loud and too fast, so it would be nice to have something a little more tame.

    I think last year or the year before I noticed that pretty much all the RnRC merchandise was re-branded and missing any Aerosmith logos or affiliation. I know it could just be a licensing issue but it got me thinking they may be cutting ties or removing the ride altogether :( I really hope not!

    i love rock n rollercoaster!! hands down one of my favorite rides!! i think it’d be cool though if they got a different band, like the rolling stones or even the red hot chili peppers (which is totally just a fantasy that’ll never happen :( )

    I love this ride and hope they don’t slow it down! I feel like there are lots of other options of not-too-fast coasters in DW. I could take or leave the whole Aerosmith aspect.

    I agree! The “thrill” rides are declining, I think they need to keep a good balance of both. Aerosmith is my favorite band so I’m partial to them being featured in the ride ;)

    Hey, not to worry/

    “UPDATE: The Walt Disney Company has come out and stated that The New York Times article cited below is incorrect.” -From WDW News Today article on the subject (not always reliable, but it works)

    This seems like baloney to me. I wouldn’t mind a band change, especially since most of today’s generation has never heard of Aerosmith. I didn’t even learn about the band until my first ride on this when I was 8. As for the ride itself and the plot, I hope that stays. It’s a fun ride.

    Yeah, I totally loved Aerosmith when I was about 10 or so. They’ve gone through a few generations. My dad was a fan back when Aerosmith was young! LOL :D
