G-Force Records – Setting the Scene for Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster

The aptly named G-Force Records is the setting for Hollywood Studios’ indoor roller coaster, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. The ride itself allows riders to experience a max of 4.5 Gs which shows us where the fictional record company gets its name.

I recently came across a little backstory for G-Force Records that I have not heard before. According to WDWMAGIC, G-Force Records has actually been around since the 1930s and attracted all the big names in the music industry. But on one fateful night in 1939, G-Force Records was throwing a party at the neighboring Hollywood Tower Hotel when the hotel was struck by lightning and five guests mysteriously disappeared. The hotel was abandoned and the record company fell apart. Both places sat quietly for years until the hotel was reopened and G-Force Records was also able to begin rebuilding and growing into the hugely popular studio that it is today.

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster

No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you, you’ve just entered into the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster area at the end of Hollywood Studios’ Sunset Boulevard.  The attraction, costarring the band Aerosmith, is an indoor roller coaster and takes riders on a crazy ride through Los Angeles.  After spying on a bit of Aerosmith’s recording session, guests are invited by Steven Tyler to join them at the show and he gives everybody backstage passes; the catch is that your super-stretch limo has to fight traffic to get you there on time! Each limo has its own license plate and different music to boot. Lasting only around a minute and a half, the ride is so quick that you may not even remember what you heard afterwards!
