One of the most anticipated theme park attractions currently in the works is for sure Guardian of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT in Walt Disney World. While Disneyland has the Guardians of the Galaxy’s Guardians of Breakout mission, this was a new theme to an existing ride (Tower of Terror). Cosmic Rewind, on the other hand, is a brand new attraction developed from the ground up with the express involvement of Guardians of the Galaxy writer / director James Gunn and the cast of the Marvel movie.
Today Disney Parks unveiled a short video showing the attraction’s groundbreaking new ride system, which looks like a roller coaster. Indeed, there seems to be a lot of thrill and leakage, but the trolley itself is on a vortex that tosses and turns the guest as you move along the track.
This is by no means a finished look at the attraction. For one, once it’s done it will be a closed roller coaster so clearly they start building the track outside and then they build the building around it. Described as one of the longest indoor roller coasters in the world, Cosmic Rewind takes over the EPCOT area that used to be the pavilion of the universe of energy.
That’s about all we know about its mysterious pull right now, but you can take a quick look at what’s in store below. No official start date has been set for the ride and, like most WDW attractions under construction, the ride has been delayed due to the pandemic. There’s also the issue of collecting the actors’ footage needed for the ride, which would presumably happen when Gunn started filming Guardians of the Galaxy 3 – but production will start in the second half of 2021 at the earliest.
So stay tuned and preview Cosmic Rewind below.
