We’re finally getting an inside look inside Epcot’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy attraction thanks to a new post on the official Disney Parks social media accounts!
The post, featured below, gives an inside look at the coaster–which is up and running but not yet open to the public!
The coaster, according to the Disney Parks Blog, is one of the longest fully enclosed coasters in the world. It’s labeled “family-friendly” which means it’s suitable for most riders.
Below is the official synopsis for the attraction, per the Walt Disney World website:
“Begin your adventure by touring the Galaxarium—a planetarium-like exhibition showcasing the similarities and differences between Xandar and Earth’s galaxies. You’ll even get to discover some of the incredible wonders of Xandar and learn about their technology.
Just as you are about to reach the culmination of the tour, everything goes sideways, and you are called into action to help the Guardians of the Galaxy. Are you ready to rock out on an awesome quest across the cosmos to save the galaxy? It’s all up to you!
This family-friendly attraction features the first ever reverse-launch on a Disney coaster and is one of the longest enclosed coasters in the world! A new innovation from Walt Disney Imagineering—this coaster rotates 360 degrees so you can focus on the action!”
Disney has not released an official opening date for the attraction as of yet. However, as we recently shared, there are many reports pointing to the opening of the attraction occurring Memorial Day weekend. But of course, again, this is not yet confirmed.
The attraction was originally supposed to open last year as part of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary celebration. Although, due to construction setbacks on account of the COVID-19 pandemic, the construction of the attraction took a little longer.
