Aerosmith Contributes Music To New Disney Ride

The Walt Disney Company has apparently built a new roller coaster incorporating the music of Aerosmith, and even asked the members of the band to help in some of the multimedia aspects of the ride.

According to a message posted by bassist Tom Hamilton on Aerosmith's official website, the amusement park ride will be called the Rockin' Roller Coaster, and will be able to go from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds. The ride is currently in the testing phase at Disney-MGM Studios in Orlando, Florida.

Meanwhile, Aerosmith is currently out on the road, touring in support of the band's live double-album, "A Little South of Sanity," and will play tonight at the Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood, California.

After wrapping its current U.S. tour on May 23 in Tinley Park, Illinois, Aerosmith will head over to Europe for a brief, five-week outing, but will return to the states in time to play the 1999 Woodstock Festival, slated for July 23-25 in Rome, New York.
