Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit | Orlando Accident & Injury Blog
A guest at Universal Studios Florida was injured recently while riding the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster, prompting the Orlando theme park to close the ride while the accident was investigated. Orlando amusement park accident lawyers are following developments in this case quite closely, as the roller coaster is the tallest in Central Florida and reaches speeds up to 65 mph. The roller coaster rises 17 stories above the theme park and can be seen for miles around. The height, combined with the fast speeds, make it one of the most thrilling rides in the theme park, but also one of the most potentially dangerous rides in the event of human error or mechanical failure.
