    Does the Rockin-Roller-Coster go upside down? My sister is gun-ho on riding it and i'm not a fan of being upside down.

    Hi Colleen!  Upside down, topsy-turvy, inside out - you name it, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster does it.  Yes, this attraction will turn you and your sis upside down (more than once) if you choose to brave it.  Over the years - through all of our family visits to Walt Disney World - I've been able to get out of this attraction because I've volunteered to stay behind with our kids who didn't quite meet the height requirement.  That is until my adventurous side got the best of me last December during a stay at WDW with all of my Moms Panel friends.  I rode for the first time then.  I have to tell you that I wasn't a huge fan.  I seem to be one of the few though because all of the other Moms love it as do my husband and oldest daughter (age 13).

    The pre-show is great.  The synchronized music is even better.  And the 0 to lightspeed takeoff is something everyone should experience at least once in a lifetime.  The only part of the attraction I didn't enjoy was the jerkiness that left me with a bit of a headache.  I should say that I get the same headache after riding both Space and Big Thunder Mountains, though I am fine after Expedition Everest.  

    Personally, I like to give each and every attraction a try at least once so I can be the judge, but if going upside down is a deal breaker for you then you'll want to avoid Rock 'n' Roller Coaster.  Should you need to compromise with your sister, the nearby Tower of Terror is equally thrilling though 100% right side up.  Good luck and have a blast!
