At the D23 Expo 2019, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek unveiled new details around Epcot’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, a family-friendly “storytelling coaster” that will feature a groundbreaking ride system with vehicles that rotate 360 degrees and can even do a reverse launch.
Today we’re happy to share a closer look at this out-of-this-world ride system.
As you can see in the video above – provided by Walt Disney Imagineering – each individual cab in the attraction’s OmniCoaster ride system will direct the Guest's eyes to the story happening around them. Instead of whizzing by the action, the system will fully immerse Guests in the attraction’s story from the minute they take off.
At Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind the adventure will start in the “Galaxarium,” a planetarium-like exhibition that explores the similarities and mysteries of the formation of Earth’s galaxy and Xandar. You will be invited to learn more about Xandar’s treasures – until the moment when the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive, and adventures across the cosmos ensue.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will open in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World® Resort in 2021. Stay tuned for future updates.
