Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

The upcoming roller coaster will be family-friendly and will 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.

Virtual Queues at Disney World

Disney Parks implemented the idea of a virtual queue when they knew the E-ticket ride, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, would be popular amongst Guests. Therefore, those wishing to join the resistance and take on the First Order need to first obtain a boarding group, which is done through the My Disney Experience app for Disney World or the Disneyland app for Disneyland.

When the virtual queue opens up, Guests must open up the app, ensure they are signed into their Disney account and join a boarding group. This happens very quickly every day, so Guests sometimes struggle to snag a boarding group.

Additionally, Disneyland has also begun testing a virtual queue system for its popular ride, Indiana Jones Adventure.

Will Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind utilize a virtual queue?

With Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind also being an E-ticket attraction, and with this being the first Marvel-themed ride at Walt Disney World, it is safe to safe Guests will be lined up to take a spin on the coaster.

In order to help maintain lines and demand, it might be best for Disney to implement a virtual queue for when this ride debuts. However, at this time Disney has not confirmed nor denied if a virtual queue would be implemented at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, but Inside the Magic will update you as we get information.
