It’s not all that often that you can get an in-person behind-the-scenes look at Disney World rides and attractions.
Usually, Disney will pull back the curtain and let us behind the scenes in exclusive videos — and, while previews of new attractions and technology like Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and a walking Baby Groot animatronic through your screen is cool, it’s just not the same as getting an exclusive look in-person. But, every once in a while something unpredictable happens and you get a look at the things Disney doesn’t necessarily want you to see.
And, that’s what happened for one of our readers! On AllEars Facebook, Heather B. shared that during her afternoon ride on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the ride came to an unexpected halt. Unable to finish the ride, Cast Members started the evacuation process and turned the lights on to reveal an inside look at the roller coaster! And, it may not be what you expected.
Up high on a hill, you can see how the track loops and, if you look all the way down in the corner, you can spot some of the props lit up without any ultraviolet light to make them glow. It also looks like Disney might be doing some work down there — if you look close you can spot an orange and yellow crane.
With the lights on you can get a good look at the rest of the props and you might be surprised by how much track you’re actually traveling on your high-speed stretch limo journey. Or, you might be even more surprised to see just how close you are to the tracks above and below you!
And, if you’re wondering how close you get to the ceiling during the ride, here’s where the ride vehicle stopped. Looks like the only part of the ride where you get higher is the loop!
So, you can probably imagine how many steps our reader, Heather needed to climb to get down when they were evacuated (it was a lot!).
It’s not every day you get to see that! If you want even more behind-the-scenes secrets about the fastest stretch limo ride at Disney World, you can check out our video below!
