Disney has officially shared their first look at the coaster vehicles for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind coaster? Take a look!
These vehicles will be able to rotate 360 degrees and can even do a reverse launch. In addition, each individual vehicle, which is part of the OmniCoaster ride system, will direct your eyes to the story happening around you. The vehicles will not act like a traditional coaster, where you speed past sets. Instead, the system will fully immerse you in the story from the minute you take off.
As was announced at the D23 Expo, your adventure to experience this coaster will begin with you starting in the “Galaxarium,” which is 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 of course, adventures ensue.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will open at Epcot in 2021, just in time for the Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary.
