My Top 5 Thrill Rides In Florida – Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit

Hi all,

As you may have read previously in the blog, I recently had the pleasure of visiting Orlando with the UK Universal and SeaWorld team. I was very lucky to ride every roller coaster and thrill ride available at Island’s of Adventure, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and Busch Gardens.

This week I will count down my top 5 must ride coasters in Florida, starting with Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit at Universal Studio’s.

Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit at Universal Studio’s

I like roller coasters and I like music, imagine putting them together and I’d be in thrill ride heaven…

Well that’s exactly what Universal have done here. Unique to another coaster I’ve ever ridden, you have 45 Seconds to select a tune of your choice to “enjoy” while flying round the 3800ft track.

In addition to these 30 songs, Universal Studios Florida also provided additional “hidden” songs that are available to riders, but are not included in the on-ride video if the rider chooses to purchase it
I picked The Beastie Boys, Sabotage, it worked a treat! :-)
When you leave the station, you begin a slow vertical climb of 167 feet, it takes 16 seconds to reach the top and if you’re brave enough to move your head you can get a great view of Universal Studios before you plunge 170 feet at 65 mph straight in to a twisted loop, like a normal loop the loop but at the top it twists so that the passenger is right side up when descending…
One thing you may want to remember to avoid embarrisment is that the whole time you’re riding the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit you’re being filmed in your very own music video…. I was very lucky (insert sarcasm) to have my video played to our group, showing me widely singing and giggling like a school girl!! :-)
A truly brilliant ride and one I could honest ride time and time again, the music element not only adds to the experience but provides a great “after roller coaster” conversation, “what music did you pick?”. offer great rates of Florida attraction tickets the Orlando Flex Ticket or the Universal bonus tickets get you entry in to Universal Studio’s for up to 14 days.
What’s your favourite ride?
