Recently, Dave Bautista, the former pro wrestler who plays Drax the Destroyer in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023), was spotted at EPCOT filming a new promotional video for Disney Parks, which was recently posted on social media.

In the video shared by Disney Parks (@DisneyParks) on Twitter, Dave Bautista shared his experience after riding Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind for the first time, commenting that his heart was pounding from the excitement. “It’s just such an interesting coaster. Just with the spinning, the twisting and turning, it’s so different,” said Bautista.

“I think by far the best coaster I’ve ever been on,” Bautista commented before talking about how playing Drax in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has changed not only his career but his life, and adding that being a part of Disney World is “a little overwhelming” and “a little emotional” for the actor.

The official Walt Disney World Website describes the attraction as follows:

Begin your adventure by touring the Galaxarium—a planetarium-like exhibition showcasing the similarities and differences between Xandar and Earth’s galaxies. You’ll even get to discover some of the incredible wonders of Xandar and learn about their technology.

Just as you are about to reach the culmination of the tour, everything goes sideways, and you are called into action to help the Guardians of the Galaxy. Join Rocket, Groot, Gamora and Star-Lord on an urgent mission where you’ll rewind, rotate and head towards the action through an exciting space pursuit.
