We have some exciting news regarding the new “Guardians of the Galaxy”-inspired attraction coming to life at Epcot® and we want to pass it onto you!
According to Disney Travel News, Bob Chapek (Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman) shared the first details on the innovative new ride system planned:
Building an adventure this big will require a ride system and ride vehicles unlike anything guests have experienced before. This encounter can best be described as a one-of-a-kind storytelling coaster that connects the adventure of a storyline with the thrills of a coaster.
“On most coasters, the vehicles point straight ahead throughout the ride,” Bob explained. “But on this attraction, each individual cab will be programmed to direct your eye to the story happening around you. That means instead of whizzing by the action, you’ll be fully immersed in the story from the minute you launch.”
This monster attraction, which will be housed inside a building so large that the volume of four Spaceship Earths could fit inside it, is said be one of the world’s longest enclosed roller coasters when it opens in Future World at Epcot, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World® Resort in 2021.
