The long awaited and highly anticipated Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit at Universal Orlando Resort is now open. The highly innovative attraction includes first ever maneuvers and advanced technology for a ride that provides the ultimate thrills for roller coaster enthusiasts. The interactive elements of the ride, which allow coaster goers to pick a song to rock out to during their adventure, as well as the entire ride being taped as a take-home music video available for purchase, creates an all-encompassing experience that brings roller coaster rides to a whole new level.
The twists, turns, curves and drops featured on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit are highlighted by three first-ever maneuvers: the Double Take, the world’s largest non-inverted loop; the Treble Clef, a music symbol shaped track that has riders bursting through a building façade; and the Jump Cut, a spiraling, negative-gravity move that promises excitement. Universal Orlando Resort is promising that no two experiences on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit will be the same, as each ride can be individualized for that rider, for that occasion.
The technology used on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit allows the ride to be completely customized by riders using a personal touchpad mounted on the ride vehicles to make their music selection. There are five music genres to pick from – Classic Rock/Metal, Rap/Hip-Hop, Club/Electronica, Pop/Disco and Country – so every guest will be able to select a song that fits their personality, and wanted experience, best. The vehicles of Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit have separate seats, each with separate speakers, so that each rider can pick a song selection and yet never have to hear the songs playing for other riders.
The memento portion of the ride is an entirely new concept, as most rides generally offer a photo souvenir, but none offer a customized music video for guests to purchase after their adventure. With Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, the song you choose for your ride is also the soundtrack to your video, which splices ride footage, music and special effects together for a one-of-a-kind keepsake. Best of all, these videos are available immediately after the ride is completed.
