You and one guest± are invited to take your music for a rideSM on the brand new Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, the only roller coaster where you pick the soundtrack and cameras record your experience!

You must RSVP to attend, space is limited!

Unfortunately I will miss it and the site is down to reserve so idk if they put it up prematurely or they are getting a flood of ppl and its already full.
Can you please post alink or is it where you sign in for AP holders? I'm at work and do not have my pass to login. We are going to be there all that week for 8 days and want to register.

Its on the passholder site which has been going down and back up for the last 2 hours... So far I havent seen the link work to reserve a spot.

After clicking the link from Uni site - We've recently redesigned our site, and the link you are looking for has changed. You will be redirected to the homepage in 10 seconds, or you can click here.

I'll miss it too since I work during the week!

I figured Universal would do something like this and it really pisses me off! This is a MAJOR attaction and they have apparently decided to do another screwed up preview. I don't know who's running the show over there but I don't see why they couldn't do an evening preview (after the park closed) for those of us who work during the day. I thought the passholder preview for RoTM was outstanding and very well organized but I guess who ever planned that event doesn't work there anymore and we're left with people who insist on previewing rides during the day...during the week! Pitiful!

Do you think the ride will be open to the public the rest of the day? We were planning on going on the 3rd but now I am thinking if we go on the 8th, we would have a better chance. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

The link is totally gone now to sign up for the passholder event. Maybe it was premature like the radio station thing.

My beef, and Universal knows this from past experiences, is WHY do you have to pre-register for an AP premier? JUST SHOW YOUR AP!!! Duh...it's not rocketscience!

ps---sorry Todd

I remember pre-registering for the AP area at Mardi Gras. Not sure why we had to do that either.

Here's an interesting story in today's paper about the HR3 and I thought I'd share:

Yea I don't understand that unless they have more APs then they have space to go to the event.

I'll miss it too since I work during the week!

I agree. I was not too happy seeing it during the week. I was planning on switching shifts and working night possibly to go but I don't think I will do that.

I figured since it was coming straight from Universal it would of been more reliable then a radio station but I guess I had that wrong!

They won't turn you away if you don't pre-register. They had the same thing for the Mummy AP preview. It was 2 nights and you had to register and tell them what night you were attending. I registered for the first night and came. Then decided to show up the second night and was still let in with no problem at all.

I think they like people to RSVP so they can get a head count. They use that count to determine how many gifts they might need and to estimate the crowd level for staffing purposes.
