  • Track Length: 3,403 feet, which is more than a half-mile of
    twists, turns, loops, corkscrews, hills and dips.
  • Inversions: Two roll-over loops and one corkscrew — Rock ‘n’
    Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith is Disney’s first coaster in the
    United States to feature inversions.
  • “Limotrain” Capacity: 24 guests, about twice the number of
    passengers who fit in the average stretch limousine.
  • Maximum Speed: The attraction’s high-speed launch catapults
    each Limotrain to approximately 60 mph in 2.8 seconds — similar to
    the feeling of sitting in a supersonic jet as it blasts off from
    the deck of an aircraft carrier.
  • Exclusive Audio: Five specially recorded Aerosmith soundtracks.
    Each Limotrain features a different Aerosmith song, with lead
    singer Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry recording custom lyrics
    and riffs for each tune. Examples include “Love In A Roller
    Coaster” (“Love In An Elevator”) and “What Kind of Ride Are You
    On?” (“What Kind of Love Are You On?”).
  • A Rocking Good Time: Actual ride time for the roller coaster is
    1:22; the cycle time for each Limotrain is 3:12 (the exact running
    time of one of Aerosmith’s “Greatest Hits,” “Sweet Emotion”); and
    the attraction’s pre-show feature is approximately two
    minutes.
  • On-Board Audio: Each guest’s seat boasts two high-frequency
    tweeters, two mid-range speakers and one subwoofer (mounted under
    the seat). By comparison, most automobiles have a total of four
    speakers in the entire vehicle.

    scale-model coaster track and extends 320 feet to the entrance
    arch.
