Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster now officially open


It was only a few days ago that Universal Studios’ Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster began technical rehearsals, first with their employees, then with park guests.

Now, the new ride is officially open to all park guests wanting to experience the newest excitement that the Universal Orlando Resort has to offer.

A grand opening event date has not been set, but it’s no surprise that Universal wanted to officially open this ride as soon as possible, after delays pushed its planned opening back by a few months. So those of who waiting to make sure that the ride was ready for all to enjoy, wait no longer. You can head to Universal Studios now and hop in line.

Here’s another look at the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster:

I’ll see if they changed the billboard yet from “Coming Soon” to “Now Open” on my drive home from work. 🙂

ok… being a rocker.. hardcore metal head from the 80’s and 90’s.. this seemed to be a cool idea for me and the wife to go on. no kids to bog us down a bit; not that we minded that when we did have them home.. now they are all in college.. anyway, we could just enjoy going wherever we want doing whatever we want… sooooo… back to the ride. seemed to be a cool great, nfty idea blend of tech, music and ride.. luckily, we went today, hardly a crowd. got on it rather fast though almost 40 mins from WAY inside the rat maze that, on a crowded day would be like wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy outside from where we were… figure over 2 hrs easily. the ride… SHORT.. we love coasters… love the initial main drop… nothing here. it was over in a flash. the music choices were cool, doesent seem to do much in anyway to make the ride more exciting. the adding of or blending music into park rides is nothing new. having your own choices, though only ONE choice, and the genres are find… BUT, you wont finish a song or get near its end before the ride ends. furthermore, DONT waste your money on getting ‘your music dvd’ at the end… WHAT A FRICKN WASTE OF CRAP!! look… we usually NEVER NEVER pay for those at the end of ride shots that they all try to milk you for…. but, being there were these cams everywhere and in the car, one would think, or rather, ‘they’ gave you the impression that the disc, or music video of your ride, would be just that… YOUR ride, mostly of you and whoever the cam got in YOUR row… etc. with some the music YOU chose and, some fx thrown in, cam cuts and whatver they could put together within a few minutes of your rides end-your purchase-disc creation- receipt of product. well… the disc was sure full of lots of digital stuff, my music choice, some cool/nice credits, BUT only a FEW.. very FEW LIVE action cam shots of me/us… for… $30.00???? i could go on and on about this crap… though it was fun to see those very few, no more than a second or two, quick live shots, that was it. THAT just sucked when you thought you would see your ENTIRE ride. well… we got somehting for us, probably never watch it again since you really see nothing but a computer generated mish mosh of fx, cg coaster stuff, hear a song, and the few shots. i dont know why they couldnt at least give you your entire ride. that to me would have been more fun to see.
