Rehabilitate? Or, Eliminate? – Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith

That’s right, folks.  This popular All in WDW feature activity is back, and, this time, we’re taking on a “heavyweight” – the equally popular Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith!

I have to admit … this one hits close to home.  The electrifying intensity and excitement of Rock ‘n’ Roller’s catapult launch makes this coaster my absolute favorite anywhere.

Having said that, is it time for a change?  Has Aerosmith run its course?  Does a new band or artist need to step up?  Should the quite-dated intro movie be replaced?

Well, let’s get creative.  It’s time for Rehabilitate? Or, Eliminate?!  What’s that all about?  Well, open up your imaginations, my friends, because it goes something like this …

Welcome to the The Walt Disney Company!  I hope you’re enjoying your “career” in Disney’s design and development division – Walt Disney Imagineering!

As you know, WDI is responsible for the creation and construction of Disney theme parks worldwide, and we need your help!  Tap into your creativity.  Imagine that you’re an … Imagineer!  Yes!  In fact, in today’s case, you’re a “re-imagineer”!

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith!  Should we rehabilitate?  Leave the theme alone, but give it a bit of a facelift, maybe?  Should we eliminate?  Replace it with a new theme and attraction altogether?  Or, should we simply leave it completely alone?

Your task, today, is a two-part job.  First, what’s your vote?  Second, if you want to rehabilitate, what do you suggest we do?  If you want to eliminate, what should take its place?  What’s your “Project Plan”?

Leave your comments on this post, on Facebook, or on Twitter, my friends!  This is what we do.  It’s Imagineering.  It’s “Re-Imagineering”!  We need your help!  Now, get to work!

Dash Along with Slinky Dog! Trivia Revealed!

TGIF, my friends!  Did you get a chance to test your mettle?  Did you tackle this week’s trivia?  No?  Then, by all means, before you scroll down, please stop back by clicking this link …

Try Your Mind at … Slinky Dog Trivia!

Are you ready for the answers?  Yes?  OK.  Let’s go!

Very early in the production history of the Slinky, Slinky Dog was added as a product.  In what year was it added?  Well, it was introduced in 1952, my friends!

Slinky Dog wasn’t “born” alone, though.  At the same time as it hit our toy boxes, the Slinky Train was introduced!  Slinky Train?

Finally, Slinky Dog was a product originally sold by James Industries.  Another fun fact, however?  In 1998, James Industries was sold to Poof Products, Inc.!

There.  Now that Slinky’s “secrets” have been revealed, do you want to take a dash through Disney along with him?  I thought you might!
