Ever wonder what Rock N Roller Coaster at Hollywood Studios would look like if it was outside or even just had the lights on?
It just so happens the track the Aerosmith-themed thrill ride is set on isn’t exclusive to Hollywood Studios. While this same ride is also an indoor ride at Disneyland Paris, it’s also set completely outside at the Walibi Holland theme park in Europe. Located in Biddinghuizen, Netherlands, the Xpress: Platform 13 is the same track as the Rock N Roller Coasters.
All three roller coaster tracks were built by the same manufacturer. Vekoma Rides Manufacturing out of the Netherlands is one of the top roller coaster manufacturers in the world and specializes in the LSM (Linear Synchronous Motor) type rides. These LMS roller coasters have electric motors which give the coaster that “boost” or push at the beginning of the ride. You can definitely feel the push as Rock N Roller Coaster goes from 0 to 60 mph in just under 3 seconds!
A guest to the Walibi Holland theme park rode the XPress ride a few years ago and used a GoPro from the front row to capture some great footage of the ride.
Here’s the video of the XPress: Platform 13 ride, the same track as Rock N Roller Coaster in Hollywood Studios!
