    The contract to use Aerosmith's likeness for the Rock N Roller Coaster is ending at Disney Hollywood Studios. They will probably not renew the contract since, let's face it, Aerosmith just isn't hip enough any more.

    But what about turning it into a Beatles themed ride? You could soar through the world of Beatlemania at full speed. Screaming girls, city-to-city all to the music of the Beatles.
    Disney has seen first hand that the Beatles are more than relevant, and the Beatles (Apple et al) seem willing to expand their world to Vegas shows and the like.

    I'd ride that ride any day.

    I think Love is a better presentation suited for the Beatles' music than a rollercoaster (not a great fit for Aerosmith either, let's be honest).

    I haven't, and the presentation is probably exceptional.

    I'm also far less interested in the Cirque side of the Love show, I have to say. But just on concept alone, definitely not feeling the Beatlecoaster rolling up to the Toppermost of the Poppermost and then dropping you back down into Twickenham valley :laugh:

    Wouldn't a submarine ride be more appropriate?

    I am a huge fan of the ride. Aerosmith's music fits perfectly, fast music, fast ride.
    If it were the Beatles blaring out of multiple speakers while going 0 mph to 55 mph... It wouldn't be the same. Helter Skelter is the only one of their songs that would fit the bill, and I don't even really like it...

    If there's money to be made, Disney and Aerosmith will probably take the offer.

    EDIT: I wouldn't mind if AC/DC took over...:D

    A Yellow Submarine 'ride' could be fun. Not a Rolley Coaster as such but with todays tech it could be a nice little 'trip'.

    Where's the paper bag......? :sweating:

    A fun idea I suppose. That's if I liked rollercoasters. I don't. Ah well.

    The whole point of the music for a rollercoaster is it should be loud, and fast, something that The Beatles never managed!

    I’ve been on the ride, more than once, Motörhead would be perfect for it, but Aerosmith are a pretty decent choice, and I don’t even particularly like Aerosmith.

    And I guess Helter Skelter is the wrong ride.

    I don't see Motorhead getting the approval of The Mouse, for some reason. But yes, agreed.

    They could bring back 20,000 Leagues under The Sea and retheme it to the Yellow Submarine movie. That'd be interesting, but nowhere near as awesome as the current rock and roller coaster is.

    Love Disney. Love the Rock N Rollercoaster.

    If rather there not be a Beatles ride at Disney World.

    However, I think, in time, something like that might happen

    Given the age of many of us, I’m not sure our digestive systems are still up for roller coasters, especially those with loops. They could license with Taylor Swift and still include the screaming kids effects.

    Beatles roller coaster is perfect. So would a coffin a la Kiss. Kiss copied the Beatles pop merchandising and marketing. First had to really monetize and become a cartoon. Amazing really. Makes Mikey Mouse look like Dylan. Beatles need to keep up and sell more toys. A roller coaster is perfect. Symbolic of their pop status. The kings of bubblegum

    Love the ride, in my top 5 at DW.
    Actually I think Kiss would work well using songs such as Rock N Roll All Nite, Shout It Out Loud.

    I doubt it will happen, but it would be fantastic if you could have a roller coaster like this:

    The Helter Skelter intro start, with the guitar riff looping a bit to extend the song as you climb the track, then Ringo’s drums start to come in, and right when it gets to Paul singing “and I see you agaaaaaaiiiinnnnn, yeah yeah yeah!”, you would start the plunge down. How rad of a coaster would that be? Call it Coaster Skelter, as one idea.
