    Does the Rock'n'Roller Coaster go upside down? My granddaughter is gun-ho on riding it, but I'm not a fan of being upside down!

    Upside down, topsy-turvy, inside out - you name it, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster does it.  Yes, this attraction will turn you 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 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 loved it!

    The pre-show is great.  The synchronized music is even better.  And the zero 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, the nearby Tower of Terror is equally thrilling though 100% right side up.  Good luck and have a blast!
