The launch is fantastic, the rest of the ride is just fun. I am not into extreme thrill rides (eg the highest/biggest/longest coasters) I just like them to be fast and fun, hence Disney's type of coaster appeals to me.

Josephus had a great corkscrew too...

Not like there's a heck of a lot else to ride at that park for the moment anyway...

I second this. RnRC has always been a great ride and a solid coaster. Yes, there are BETTER coasters out there for sure, but this ride is still great 17 years after opening. Though I believe it should definitely be rethemed soon as Aerosmith is calling it quits after next year and the theme of the park is moving away from what it once was.

It's got a great, intense launch, a fun loop, and a terrific corkscrew. Not sure how any of that is "plain" -- what do people want, really? It's lots of fun, and whether you're an Aerosmith fan or not, their music goes perfectly with the setup and ride. Is it the best ride in the parks? Not by a long shot. But hey, it's fun, silly, and always enjoyable (except for when it breaks down, which it does way way too often).

Plain but they were clever with the storyline and setup. I hope it stays forever with possibly a fresh storyline, sets and long as they don't downgrade it to the Paris version which is no sets and colored lights...snore.

It is a stunning coaster. Really fun. I sincerely hope they keep it for a long time.

My daughter is on her senior class trip right now and texted me she was going on RnR coaster. I told her it wasn't open but she said she was standing in line. Really surprised.
