Imagineer Zach Riddley has taken to Instagram to announce that Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is “deep in the final stages of construction” at EPCOT. Here’s the announcement:
We are deep in the final stages of preparing our first Other World Showcase pavilion at EPCOT with our Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction! This stunning new addition to EPCOT will feature some firsts for the park – our first roller coaster attraction, a brand-new storytelling coaster technology, and one of the longest indoor coasters in the world! This is a story and a set of characters that expand EPCOT’s strong legacy of real science brought to life in fantastic ways –discovering the wonders and mysteries of our galaxy and galaxies beyond.
We are excited to soon welcome Rocket, Groot, and other members of the Guardians of the Galaxy to EPCOT and to take us on an adventure that’s truly out of this world!!
Disney has not announced when Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will open, but has previously said that it will be open before the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary kicks off. With just weeks to go, it’s unlikely that they will be able to open on time, and Cosmic Rewind has previously been scrapped from a list of 2021 openings. It’s likely that the attraction will open sometime in 2022.
