Disney Park Releases Test Footage of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind’ Coaster Vehicles


Today has actually been quite exciting and it’s only like noon! During the IAAPA presentation today we learned a great deal about what’s coming to the Disney parks and how they look. But now Disney has released a look a test footage of their ride vehicle for the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.”

These ride vehicles are the first of their kind offering a ride system that allows the vehicles to rotate 360 degrees to change the direction of the viewer and maximize the experience.

Here’s the write-up:

Work continues on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT – the family-friendly “storytelling coaster” featuring a groundbreaking ride system with vehicles that rotate 360 degrees and can even do a reverse launch! The Omnicoaster is a first- of-its-kind programmable roller coaster ride system, where guests can be rotated along the ride track in any direction while traveling at high speeds.

The vehicles are designed to look like they have been used during re-entry and Disney Imagineering took great effort to give them the broken-in look!

We also got a look at the inside track for the the upcoming experience. It’s one of the longest indoor coasters in the world!

I’m really getting excited for this one!

Of course we still don’t know when it will open. It’s been set for 2021, but with delays it is possible that could change. Disney wanted it for the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World, but if it had to be bumped into 2022, they could still use if for EPCOT’s 40th Anniversary.

I’m hoping we get more information during the D23 Fantastic World Celebration in the EPCOT: The Magic of Possibility Panel on November 19th.
