First off let me say I like this ride a lot. It's a heck of a ride and I think it's done pretty well overall. But my question is this:
What does it have to do with the Disney-MGM Studios?
I mean it's supposed to be a movie-themed park right? How *exactly* does a ride themed around a 70's & 80's rock band fit into that theme? This has bugged me for a while now. And I'm being serious here, it's not just a rant. What is Disney's reasoning/explaination for this? Cause it seems to me they're stretching theming to a whole new level here.
I think it's a great ride and pretty well-executed, by why in MGM? Granted it wouldn't fit anywhere else, right? Doesn't fit in DAK, Epcot, or the MK, so I guess Disney-MGM was the only choice... Did they feel they needed a coaster in the park? Then why an Aerosmith? Why not theme is to something more in tune with a *Movie-themed THEME park*?
I understand Aerosmith did some songs for the Disney/Touchstone movie Armageddon, but is that really enough to justify this kind of *weak* synergy?
