LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (WFLA) – Walt Disney World Resort’s newest ride officially has an opening date.
“Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind” will open at Epcot on May 27.
“This thrilling new family-friendly coaster matches the ‘grandiosity’ and fun of the blockbuster ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ films, featuring those lovable cosmic misfits – Rocket, Groot, Drax, Gamora and Star-Lord,” a press release from Disney World states.
Disney said the building the ride is housed in is so large that, by volume, four Spaceship Earth attractions could fit inside.
The family-friendly attraction features Disney’s first-ever reverse-launch on a roller coaster. It’s one of the longest enclosed coasters in the world, according to Disney. The ride also rotates 360 degrees as you ride.
