One of the biggest pieces of the Epcot transformation is the addition of a new coaster! See this exciting new update for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.
Epcot is currently undergoing a massive multi-year transformation. While many projects like Creations Shop, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, and Space 220 are already completed, more is yet to come! One of those projects we are anxiously awaiting is a new coaster!
The coaster, entitled Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind, takes place during Peter Quill’s visit to Epcot in the 1980s. Get ready for plenty of throwback Epcot nostalgia!
The ride will start in the “Galaxarium“, a planetarium like-structure. It will showcase the similarities between Earth’s galaxy (the Milky Way) and the Guardians galaxy (Xandar).
This family-friendly coaster features a ride vehicle that can rotate 360 degrees and it will offer a reverse launch. Be sure to check out this attraction video HERE.
In September, Disney shared the latest update including a (broad) opening timeline. Fans of the Guardians of the Galaxy and Disney Guests will be able to finally ride this coaster sometime in 2022.
Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley took to social media to share an exciting new update for Cosmic Rewind.
“We are excited to share a first look at our stunning facade being installed at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind!! This morning we unwrapped the metal panels that will cover the entire front surface of the pavilion. These metallic silver panels bring a sleek, intergalactic aesthetic that fits perfectly in our World Discovery neighborhood.
Soon we will commence installation of our greeter booth in front of these panels that will serve as gateway into this attraction. This structure will serve as our welcome point for all Guests who come to experience the treasures of our Mandarin friends have come to EPCOT to showcase.
We have much more progress to share as the exterior of the pavilion takes shape over the coming weeks and as we continue one of the largest park transformations in Disney history.”
