Rethemed to Muppets Mayhem

We have some thrilling news for all you Walt Disney World fans out there! There’s a rumor floating around that Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster may be rethemed to Muppets Mayhem. And guess what? The co-creator of the Muppets Mayhem series on Disney+ has fanned the flames of this reimagining, adding fuel to the excitement. Let’s delve into the details and explore why this potential transformation is something many of us would love to see happen.

First things first, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith recently reopened unofficially at the start of summer following an extensive refurbishment. During its closure, speculations arose about the ride’s refurbishment duration, fueled by construction permits and the impression that it could last until Fall 2023. These rumors suggested that Walt Disney World and third-party contractors were taking their time to address issues that have plagued Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster with frequent downtime over the years.

With such a lengthy closure, speculations also emerged about a possible theme change for the ride. While Walt Disney World never directly addressed these rumors, they indirectly dismissed them by stating that the “rocktastic attraction will resume its super-stretch limo rides in summer 2023.” Now that the ride has reopened, it remains unchanged as Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, with only a few props and band photos removed. Steven Tyler and the gang are still front and center.

But here’s where things get interesting. Jeff Yorkes, co-creator of The Muppets Mayhem series, recently posted a tweet in response to an article discussing the Muppets takeover rumors. In the tweet, he stated, “Not gonna lie–this was absolutely part of our original pitch and is another piece of this dream. Fingers-crossed that it happens.” Although the tweet was deleted shortly after, it’s a positive sign that Disney may have taken notice. If it were merely wishful thinking, Disney would likely not care about removing the statement.

Moreover, this isn’t the first time the idea of the Muppets taking over Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster has surfaced. Former Imagineer Kevin Lively responded to a tweet hinting at a pitch made years ago with a full preshow script and treatment. It’s important to note that the Muppets are now under the purview of Walt Disney Imagineering, which explains their recent appearances and successful ventures on Disney+. The Muppets Mayhem series has garnered high ratings and favorable reviews, proving its enduring popularity among fans.

While there’s no confirmation that the Muppets are taking over of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is happening, it’s worth considering why this could be an exciting possibility. The Muppets are beloved characters with a devoted following, and their recent success on Disney+ has kept them in the spotlight. With the creators of Muppets Mayhem seeking synergy and connections with Disney parks, it’s not surprising that they presented the idea to Imagineering. However, it’s essential to treat this as a rumor for now, as not all proposed projects come to fruition.

Why not the Muppets, though? They have a timeless appeal, someone high-up in Burbank clearly adores them, and they’re currently in the spotlight at Imagineering. While it might not be the most obvious choice in terms of synergy, the same could be said about TRON Lightcycle Run, and we know how incredible that turned out.

So, let’s keep our fingers crossed and our imaginations running wild. A Muppets Mayhem takeover of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster would undoubtedly
