Like all rumors, this is not confirmed yet. However, this does seem completely possible!
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
We are all anxiously awaiting another completed project at Epcot. This multi-year transformation has been a wonder to behold as we see projects come to life! I love that Disney is adding more attractions to Epcot.
Although we do not have an opening date yet, Guardians of the Galaxy is set to welcome Guests this summer. A Disney executive may have leaked a more precise timeframe of Memorial Day. See that news HERE.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is a family-friendly coaster that features a ride vehicle that rotates 360 degrees. For the first time at a Disney Park, you’ll find a reverse launch! Here, guests take part in an exciting chase through space and time! Be sure to check out a previously released attraction video HERE.
The latest updates include progress on both the exterior and the interior. Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley also shared a lengthy update on the progress being made on the attraction queue and the reason behind some of the creative decisions. You can read about that HERE.
Rumored Height Requirement
Given the fact that the Disney website touts the ride as a family-friendly attraction, we are not expecting a super tall height requirement. Rock ‘n’ rollercoaster, for example, goes upside down and has a 48″ requirement.
According to @DrewDisneyDude, Disney revealed the hight requirement. Guests will need to be 42″ to ride according to the tweet.
The tweet also compares this height requirement to other Disney World attractions. It looks to be on par with Big Thunder Mountain and Expedition Everest in intensity and structure.
The rumored height requirement for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is 42″.
Of course, until Disney officially confirms treat this information as a rumor. We should know more in the coming weeks as Disney prepares for a summer opening!
What do you think of the 42″ height requirement? Do you wish it was taller or shorter? Let us know in the comments below and on Facebook.
