Rock n' Roller Coaster Temporarily Closing Early 2023

by Jessica Hristov

If you are a fan of the Rock n’ Roller Coaster at Hollywood Studios, you need to walk this way to ride it before it closes for a several month-long refurbishment! The winter months are a very common time for refurbishments here at Disney World, with rides like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Kali River Rapids temporarily closing. Here is everything you need to know about the refurbishment!

Refurbishment Info

The Rock n’ Roller Coaster is set to close for refurbishment on February 20, 2023. Although the exact reopening date has not been released, there are rumors that it will resume operations sometime in the summer of 2023. The Rock n’ Roller Coaster opened in July of 1999 and has been rocking (and rolling) its way into people’s hearts since then! It is one of the most popular rides at Hollywood Studios so it will be interesting to see what this ride closure does to the park’s attendance or if it will greatly affect other wait times.

Other Details

Although there have been many rumors as to why this very popular ride will be closed for so long, it seems to be normal maintenance. Every so often, the rides are scheduled to undergo a short refurbishment to maintain a smooth operation. The Rock n’ Roller Coaster has not undergone any sort of refurbishment since before the parks reopened after closing due to the global pandemic. Lately, the ride has been breaking down weekly and staying closed for a day or two at a time. This refurbishment is coming at a great time to keep the ride extra amazing!


While it is a bummer that the ride will be closed for so long, it will be great to see it back and working in perfect condition when it returns this summer! In the meantime, you can enjoy other fun rides at Hollywood Studios like Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, Rise of the Resistance, Slinky Dog Dash, and of course the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror! 

Is Rock n’ Roller Coaster your favorite ride at Hollywood Studios?
