  • Disney's MGM Studios Rock'n Roller Coaster !

    Did you know that ?

    3 Same track design operating at 3 Different Theme Parks RNRC at Disney MGM Studios at WDW and Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris .

    There is one more at Walibi World ( former Six Flags Holland ) The Xpress ( former Superman The Ride ) but compare to those Rock'n Roller this one is OUTSIDE .

    there is some pictures of that Coaster.

    I knew about that.. it actually looks interesting.

    I always wondered what they "changed" to get away with it as i thought Disney owned the layout and not Vekoma.

      If you look at the height and top speed values listed at RCDB, they are slightly different from those of RnRC. It looks like they made MINOR variations to get away with it. Why not just go with a completely different layout?

        That's actually because it's the European version... A rollercoaster can not go faster than 60 kilometers an hour in France, and I believe the rest of the EU as well..

          RNRC goes at 100Kilometers and many coasters goes faster than 60Kilometers like one Wooden Coaster in France goes faster then that .

          Those Modifications are Minor but i've notice on Xpress :

          RNRC got Unload and Load Station seperate

          Xpress Got only one Unload and Load Station .

          RNRC can runs up to 5 Trains and Xpress 2 Maximum .

          those are the minor diferences between the two coasters .

              Somehow it is like looking at a skeleton of a person. All the personality is gone. It is interesting to look at, but in some way eerie.

                I'm from Europe, and the "Big One" Pepsi Max At BPB - Blackpool Pleasure Beach Is the highest and fastest Coaster in Europe or something, I will search on google. I think it goes faster than 60 km, it's pretty fast and on the big drop your head shakes about because there no over head things and if it is raining you get the whole needles in your face feeling.

                        Plus the trains are much lighter because they don't have all the heavy audio equipment.

                          Where did you hear that lol? That's like 40 mph. They certainly CAN and DO go faster than that lol

                            One other difference is that the turns on Xpress are not as tight as the 2 RnRC, since it launch faster! The reason was already noted: the trains are lighter, since they're the cheap Vekoma bathtubs.
