    Hold down the Rockit logo for 8-ish seconds. Let go. Input 306 on the keypad. Hit enter. Enjoy Eminem's "Lose Yourself" during the best ride in all of Universal Studios. (or search other songs online)

    This Rip Ride coaster is equipped with a personalized sound track option that will thrill you through the drop all the way to the inside/outside loop. After that it does get a little boring...

    There are hidden songs! The Wikipedia page for the rip ride rockit coaster lists the codes. Immigrant song is 113. Touch the logo on the screen for 10 seconds and a number pad appears. Hit enter.

    One of the best rollercoasters in Orlando. The 90 degree climb and choosing your own tune for the duration of the ride makes it unique.

    Riding at night is a much better experience! The coaster's trains have LED lights that flash different colors. The combination of the music, lights, and speed create a one of a kind experience!

    This coaster has "technical" difficulties every time I go. Our 40min wait time was 1h30min. 20min of which we sat stuck waiting to be manually let out. After all that we never even got to ride.

    When you sit down, hold your finger on the Rip Ride logo for 10 seconds. When you lift your finger, a number keypad should appear on the screen. Enter a 3 digit number. You'll find a list on Bing.

    Choose your music when you get situated (Beastie Boys "Sabotage" worked well) and know you're being filmed throughout the ride. Also - nothing in (even zipped) pockets.

    I would definitely wait for this ride if it's an hour or less. The ride gives you such a thrill. I enjoy it every time. If you're in the park, you must ride it!

    Don't go in the single line if you aren't a single! I am here by myself, the other line is flying, and I have been waiting for an hour bc everyone in the single line is with 6 of their friends!

    Hidden Songs: Hold down the logo at the top of the screen for 10 seconds before it goes up the incline. Input a 3 digit code and hit enter. My favorite is 132!

    This ride almost broke my neck while I was sitting in the last row, lol. The song list needs to be updated but there's a nice selection. I chose "Hella Good" by No Doubt. Wait will be long.

    Make sure all your loose articles are in the lockers. Sunglasses and hats have to go in the pocket or in the lockers. If not they will take you off the train and send you to the lockers.

    You get to pick your own music and enjoy tons of thrills! Best song to listen to is Black Eyed Peas "Pump It" because the music's high points match the rides twists and turns!

    It's an awesome ride. If you go to this rode when the park first opens the your wait will be reduced from about 2hours to just 15-20 minutes.

    Really cool that you can listen to a song while you ride. I went on this twice in a row! Better hold on to your pants tho. Just when you think the ride is over you've still got more to go!!

    This coaster was so fun. Each seat has a personal menu for you to choose the music genre you want to hear while you ride.👏👏

    Fun coaster where you choose your own soundtrack for the ride. Unlike the other coasters on site though, this one gave me a bit of a headache. Didn't stop me from riding it again, though.

    Definitely one of the best coasters of my life! Such a thrill. If you are a roller-coaster freak, you gotta ride this one.

    Use secret code 308 to play Bryan Adams!!! (Press the logo for 3 seconds and it will ask to enter it). Don't tell anyone :-)

    Super fun! The verticle incline at the beginning of the ride is quite the rush. Love the music self-selection options!

    You can access secret songs. Once on, touch the logo at the top 10 seconds and type in the code for your song. Google the list. En Vogue is awesome to ride to!!

    The ride to the top might be the scariest moments of my life. However, the music you choose gets you through it and the ride is so much fun.

    Make sure to quickly select your own music song/genre otherwise you'll be stuck with whatever the ride assigns.

    Hold rockit symbol at the top of the pad for five seconds and let go to type in codes for bonus tracks. I suggest 703 - For whom the bell tolls by Metallica

    Waited thought this 30-90 minute line about 20 times. Actually gotten to ride 3 times. Don't know why I even try to ride anymore, NEVER operational! Don't give return passes like Disney if breakdown.

    The only bad thing about this ride is that if the wind is too high or the temperature gets too low, they shut it down because the mechanics won't work properly.

    This ride is most often shut down due to "guest discomfort.". Ppl tend to get sick easily- it's not for weak stomachs!

    If you're a rock fan, definitely go with Motley Crue's Kickstart my Heart. Goes extremely well with the ride

    If you value your life, you're better off not riding this. Insider info says it wasn't approved by safety inspectors but they went ahead and opened it anyway. o.O

    Best coaster at either park. Sabotage by the Beastie Boys is the perfect accompaniment. Or, look for the hidden songs...Google it!

    This coaster was NOT fun. Very bumpy and jerky. Felt like it was a 20 year old coaster needed repair. Also, it is not "big boy" friendly.

    Since you can’t use the Express Pass, go on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit immediately after the park opens for the shortest lines.

    Great coaster. You get to choose your own song. Kenny Chesney..."Living in Fast Forward" great tune to listen to while on the ride.

    Don't be a douche canoe. Stand in the appropriate line. If you're riding with a throng of people, you aren't a single rider.
