Disney, Marble Doors

Recommended Posts

This ride at Disney World describes a roller coaster with marble doors as you enter with over 7000 marbles. Anyone seen these doors and what kind of marbles they are?

The band Aerosmith made a living off the old rock adage that "loud fast rules," and the Aerosmith-themed Rockin' Roller Coaster at Walt Disney World is just one example: it rockets guests from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. Each of the ride's "limos" is packed with 125 speakers powered by 32,000 watts of amplification -- almost loud enough to drown out the screams as riders pull 5 gs during the transition from the launch into the first upside-down loop. Astronauts in the Space Shuttle experience a little over 3 gs at launch. Before you go into the ride's studio tour, listen for the PA announcements -- the people being paged are the Imagineers who designed the ride. As you enter, take a look at the "marble" doors: they're covered with more than 7,000 marbles. And check your limo's license tag -- there's 1QKLIMO, UGOGIRL, BUHBYE (no longer on the limo because it "fell off"), 2FAST4U and H8TRFFC. As you get out of your limo, the voice you hear is Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler.
