ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — As the opening date draws near, Walt Disney World is sharing more details of its upcoming family-friendly thrill ride, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.
Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley took to Instagram Monday to share a first look at the roller coaster’s load station.
“It’s a stunning space – where EPCOT guests will get a chance to step aboard a Nova Corps ship and load into their Starjumper vehicles to take off with the Guardians of the Galaxy on a race through time and space,” Riddley posted. “Our ride team has been hard at work testing this innovative ride system which we call an Omnicoaster.”
Riddley said he has already experienced Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and it is “truly unlike anything” Disney has done.
The ride is set to open at EPCOT sometime this summer.
Guests will visit an “otherworld showcase pavilion” of Xandar, one of the main worlds seen in the “Guardians” movies, before taking off on a high-speed, indoor roller coaster adventure that will feature the first reverse launch on a coaster in Disney’s history.
Along the way, guests can expect to see some of their favorite characters, humor and of course, hear some of the iconic music from “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
