Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is coming soon! This new roller coaster is coming to EPCOT and is currently under construction.
Here is everything we know about this roller coaster.
Where is Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind located?
While we do not know the exact opening date yet, construction has been moving along quickly. If you head to EPCOT you will not miss this construction project. Located in Future World, this highly anticipated roller coaster will be the first Marvel-themed attraction in Walt Disney World.
The attraction will of course feature everyone’s favorite hero team, the superheroes from Guardians of the Galaxy! We are certain they will be bringing all of their mixtapes along with them for this Cosmic Rewind.
What kind of attraction is Guardian of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind?
We know that this roller coaster will be family-friendly and offer exciting thrills with an innovative ride vehicle that offers 360-degree motion for riders.
Disney Park Blog described the innovative technology for this new attraction as:
Work also continues on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind – the family-friendly “storytelling coaster” featuring a groundbreaking ride system with vehicles that rotate 360 degrees and can even do a reverse launch!
The Omnicoaster is a first- of-its-kind programmable roller coaster ride system, where guests can be rotated along the ride track in any direction while traveling at high speeds. The Omnicoaster name builds upon the tradition of the Omnimover ride system in which Walt Disney Imagineers are able to turn guests in any direction and focus their attention on a specific scene or element.
You can see a video of Disney Imagineers testing the ride vehicle below:
We also got a look at a small portion of the track layout for Cosmic Rewind!
All of these behind-the-scenes looks at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind have us very excited for the attraction. We hope you are excited too.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will bring the characters of the film to Walt Disney World for the first time you can already find these heroes at Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! can be found inside of Disney California Adventure.
What are the Guardians of the Galaxy doing now?
Currently, the third installment in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is being filmed. It was previously reported that scenes for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special (2022) will be filmed during the filming of the new movie and, as far as we know, this is still occurring. We also believe that is when the scenes for this new attraction will be filmed.
The Guardians are also set to appear in the upcoming Thor movie, Thor: Love and Thunder (2022). We cannot wait to see our favorite heroes back in action! Taika Waititi-directed Thor: Love and Thunder is currently filming in Australia.
