LAKE BUENA VISTA — Coaster fans, get ready: Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will debut at Walt Disney World Resort’s EPCOT on May 27, 2022.
The new family-friendly coaster matches the larger-than-life fun of the blockbuster ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ films, featuring all of the franchise’s lovable cosmic misfits – Rocket, Groot, Drax, Gamora and Star-Lord.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is the latest milestone in the ongoing transformation of EPCOT, and debuts as part of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration.
Located in the park’s newly renamed World Discovery neighbourhood, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be the first ‘other-world’ showcase pavilion at EPCOT, known for its pavilions for countries including Canada, Japan, Mexico and more.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is the first coaster attraction at EPCOT, the first reverse launch for a Disney coaster; and the first Walt Disney World attraction to feature the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will also be one of the longest fully enclosed coasters in the world, housed in one of the largest show buildings ever constructed for a Disney theme park.
By volume, four Spaceship Earths would fit inside the attraction’s massive new show building.
The new neighbourhood at EPCOT will also include The Wonders of Xandar Pavilion, entirely themed to Guardians of the Galaxy. Highlights include:
- The Galaxarium, a planetarium-style space showcasing planets, stars and other intergalactic wonders that connect Terra and Xandar
- The Xandar Gallery, where guests will discover more about the Xandarian people, culture and history – including the heroes of Xandar – through specially crafted displays and projections
