A Closer Look, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
In Summer 2022, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind comes to EPCOT. So, let’s take a closer look at the ride experience!
A Thrilling Experience
First, Guests will be launched backward through time and space. The ride includes digital media, the series’ signature soundtrack, and it mimics the same energy from the films.
And so, the ride vehicles are revolutionary as they rotate in a controlled manner. In fact, they spin toward the action you need to see at the time, all while the coaster moves in another direction.
Imagineer Wyatt Winter says Guests will experience “[slower] speeds to take it all in, along with high-speed coaster experiences.” Although the launch speed is currently unknown, Imagineers describe the thrill factor as between Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster.
One of the Largest Indoor Coasters
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind replaces Ellen’s Energy Adventure and expands into a new structure. Therefore, the gap between the two structures is bridged with a long tunnel, and the coaster launches into one of the biggest indoor roller coaster experiences in the entire world.
Winter says, “You will have to get out here to ride it once we’re open….to see all the different ways we get you in and around inside this attraction.” He continues, “It was a whole new building that we added on to that original location here at EPCOT to bring this whole thing to life.”
Connecting the Films
The planet, Xandar, inspires Cosmic Rewind’s narrative. Also, key characters return from the film, including Nova Prime played by Glenn Close.
Winter explains, “The idea is the planet of Xandar has come to earth, or ‘Terra,’ as they call it. They’re here to set up the first Other-World Showcase Pavilion. They wanted to come to Earth and reach out and talk about their people, technology, and culture. We’ve done that at EPCOT for years where we’ve had other countries come and show their cultures…They want to learn as much about us as teaching all of us on earth about Xandar.”
Marvel Excitement With Disney Magic
Also, the ride has a unique timeline with some surprises. Throughout the experience, Marvel history and Disney World history combine.
Finally, as we wrap a closer look at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, Winter assures that “Fans of both the films and Disney parks are going to find Easter eggs. There are fun ones for both!”
