We all know that each of the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster limos go from 0 – 60 in 2.8 seconds and that there are 125 speakers and 24 subwoofers per limo, but did you know that they built the entire coaster then constructed the building around it. Yes, folks, it’s true, in this case the roller coaster came before the egg err I mean building.
But it is too bad you don’t get much time to experience the building as the ride only lasts 1 and a half minutes so be sure to look around.
