Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley shared a sneak peek at the ride vehicles for the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind coaster under construction in EPCOT at Walt Disney World.
‘Here is an exclusive sneak peek of two of our ride engineers as they prep some of EPCOT’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind vehicles at our warehouse in Florida. If you look closely at the colorful paint design on the vehicles (called coaches in roller coaster engineering parlance), each one is unique with different wear patterns and impact marks. Imagineers were inspired by markings that appear on NASA Space Shuttles and other spacecraft upon reentry into Earth’s atmosphere.’
When finished, this one-of-a-kind family attraction will be one of the world’s longest enclosed roller coasters.
These ride vehicles are not just ordinary coaster cars – Disney describes them as:
‘The family-friendly “storytelling coaster” will feature a groundbreaking ride system with vehicles that rotate 360 degrees and can even do a reverse launch’
Here’s a little of what we know so far about Cosmic Rewind
‘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’ll 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.’
No opening date yet for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, but after a little slow down at the beginning of the pandemic, they’ve been back at work on it for a while.
Does this sound like an attraction you would want to ride? I can’t wait to try it out.
