Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World has reopened following a lengthy refurbishment.

The fan-favorite rollercoaster closed for refurbishment on February 21, 2023, but a reopening date was not provided. As expected, no changes have been made to the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster ride experience, with the refurbishment instead taking place on the launch system and general maintenance.

The ride has been experiencing extended downtimes in recent years, and this refurbishment may be addressing some of those issues.

Apologies, I meant feeling. The ride experience is still rough and a head banger (sat in the second row).

Wasn't there a problem with the launch? You wouldn't see that but maybe they worked on it

Ride it last night! It's like they did half a refurb - the new lighting in the load platform is fantastic and the new neon in the box is bright. It also appears they added new signs and effects, which is great. The ride experience is still as old feeling and 90's vekoma as normal. It does not appear that they did any track work, which is a shame.

Think Disney will give them a 2 for 1 sponsorship deal and throw in Space Mountain as well? *Edit* Poor choice of wording, Disney gives nothing for free. Should probably have said "Package deal".

So that’s what “hang n bang” means.

That's Vekoma for you. All their coasters are like that. Their new stuff is good but their older models all suffer from that. They don't call their inverted coasters hang and bangs for nothing.

Road it again this morning. This time row 9. Very bumpy. Something is going to need adjusting at some point

I hope it glows and vibrates sometimes just to be annoying ….like those things they sell for your wrist

Would MouthGuard+ interact with the tapstiles? Asking for a friend.
