What would you think of a Star Wars overlay on Rock n Roller Coaster?

Star Wars Rock n Roller Coaster overlay

One idea that has been tossed around is seeing Rock n Roller Coaster with a complete Star Wars overlay.  Disney World tested this by merely changing the musical score and a few small details during the high cost Star Wars The Force Awakens premiere event at Hollywood Studios.  Guests were allowed to ride with Star Wars music blasting.

Hyperspace Mountain has been a HUGE success at Disneyland and guests wait up to 2.5 hours to ride it.  Paper Fastpasses are typically gone within an hour or two of park opening.  I must say it was an amazing overlay with full score, video projections and laser blasts.

Some have suggested that Rock n Roller Coaster would be used effectively to add a FULL Star Wars overlay that would include a special pre-show that could include Rey on video explaining your mission.  You’d enter a Rebel base instead of merely a garage and launch into hyperspace.  Overlay would use the same cars, but the idea would include covering the signs or changing them out for projections that would make you more immersed in the Star Wars universe.

What do YOU think?  Would you prefer to leave Rock n Roller Coaster alone or would you like a special Star Wars overlay for at least a few months?

  1. My family are big fans of Star Wars…..but I have to say that I’m not for this idea…..even temporarily. My fear is that while we wait for Star Wars land they are going to so overdue the Star Wars stuff that all but us diehard fans are going to be happy once it gets here! I guess I see it as “the next” Frozen…..not fond of the movie, but loved the music, when it first came out….but now I am soooo tired of seeing everything “Frozenfied” that I’m not even looking forward to the new ride opening in Norway. You have a good thing, Disney, but be careful about overdoing it!

  2. No!!!! Sorry, Star Wars Fans but not everyone loves or for that matter even like Star Wars. I am fine with Disney giving you a land but not the entire park. Lets keep Hollywood Studios a Disney park with something for everyone. Please do not make Hollywood Studios just. Star Wars park.

  3. As I am not a Star Wars fan at all (avatar either) I don’t mind changes to the park but leave Aerosmith alone. If you want to add a Star Wars roller coaster to the park I’m always ready to ride any ride but Disney needs to stop closing everything in Hollywood studios to change it to Star Wars.

  4. I think this is a great idea. The Aerosmith theme is old and tired. The problem is it’s still a very short ride and poorly themed (besides the load area). I can’t begin to say how awesome Hyperspace Mountain was…..most impressive.

  5. I love Star Wars so Don’t get me wrong. But before they make any more changes can we at least get the bulk of all the already scheduled and ongoing construction done before we close and refurb yet another ride in the park. Open something else back up and THEN you have my blessings to either do it as a temporary change or go whole hog and permanently alter the ride theme.

  6. Noooo! Absolutely not! Aerosmith is a classic! That music is timeless! It would be an injustice to try to replace Aerosmith with Star Wars! The whole park does NOT need to be Star Wars! Don’t mess with Rockin Roller Coaster!

  7. BOOO!
    Just give me a new rollercoaster. I’m a fan of both Aerosmith and Star Wars and really want to see something in the new lands other than more gift shops and quick service restaurants. In order to shorten the lines in the park they need to have real rides. So my answer is NO.

  8. Even though I’m not a huge Star Wars fan (*gasp!*) I think it would be neat to change it up if even temporarily while they build the new Star Wars land. After that they may take it back to an (updated) Aero Smith theme or similar since it will be set apart from the Star Wars area of the park.

  9. I absolutely loved Hyperspace Mountain. With Star Wars being prevalent at DHS I think an overlay would be a great addition. It’s too bad it isn’t near Star Tours to have a Star Wars immersed experience.

  10. I have mixed feelings. I love Aerosmith, but I’d also enjoy seeing something new in the park. The ride is 15 years old at this point. Even though it would be the same ride, it would be different with the overlay.

  11. I’m not a roller coaster-rider, but I am a Star Wars fan. If people are willing to wait two and a half hours for this ride, I’m all for it–with them in that line, they won’t be in whatever line I’m in, getting me to my ride quicker :)
