Are you anxious to ride on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT? I know I am! And I am happy to say that in the summer of 2022, Guests will finally be able to see Star-Lord, Groot, Rocket, Drax, and Gamora! The new attraction will open as part of the Walt Disney World Resort 50th Anniversary celebration!
Debuting in the newly renamed World Discovery neighborhood, this family-thrill coaster attraction will be an intergalactic chase through time and space.
Disney is calling this pavilion the first “other-world” showcase pavilion. The pavilion will be known as the Wonders of Xander Pavilion. When completed, it will feature a planetarium-type presentation. Here, the Xandarians will show us their world, their people and their advanced technologies.
This attraction will be a family-friendly adventure, featuring a totally new type of roller coaster experience known as a storycoaster. It will rotate 360 degrees so you’re always focused on all the action. It will feature the first reverse launch on a Disney coaster and will be one of the longest fully enclosed coasters in the world.
Plus, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will feature Glenn Close reprising her role as Nova Prime. She is he Xandarian leader and commander of the Nova Corps. Take a look:
