First Look at the New Guardians of the Galaxy Coaster Coming to Epcot
This morning, Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman, Bob Chapek, spoke at the annual IAAPA Expo in Orlando for those in the theme park industry. During his talk, Chapek dropped some exciting information including the name and opening date for the new tower coming to Disney’s Coronado Springs. In addition, Chapek gave us some of our first visuals and details about the new Guardians of the Galaxy Coaster that is currently under construction at Epcot. And, let’s just say, this ride is going to be incredible!
Through a series of tweets from Ashely Carter, (@AshleyLCarter1) we were able to learn much more about the ride. Carter tweeted that “Disney is describing the ride as a ‘storytelling coaster.’ Each coaster car will be programmed to point riders in the direction of elements throughout the course of the ride.” She also tweeted that “The Guardians show building is large enough to fit 4 Spaceship Earths inside.” Wow!
Carter went on to tweet our first look at the ride vehicles for the Guardians of the Galaxy coaster. Check them out!
