July 29: Ride This Way

On this day in 1999, rock legends Aerosmith attended the grand opening of Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at the Disney-MGM Studios. The invitation-only party gave guests an opportunity to ride the enclosed steel coaster with a member of Aerosmith. The attraction opened to the general public the following day.


A year later on this same day, Disney World marked the anniversary of Rock 'n' Roller Coaster by forming the attraction's signature guitar in the Disney-MGM Studios' parking lot using 80 corvettes!

That would be a cool memory...to ride the coaster with Steven Tyler or Joe Perry sitting next to you and the both of you screaming at the top of your lungs.
