Disney World's Guardians Of The Galaxy Roller Coaster: Name And Details Revealed At D23
Welcome to the Rewind
Disney World in Orlando is getting its very own Guardians of the Galaxy ride as an answer to Disneyland's Guardians Of The Galaxy: Mission Breakout in Disney's California Adventure--and it won't be a re-skin of an already existing attraction.
During the presentation at Disney's D23 Expo, the first details were revealed, including the name and story. A high-speed indoor roller coaster, Guardians Of The Galaxy Cosmic Rewind will take park guests from Earth to Xandar and back in a ship belonging to the Nova Corps. The ride starts in the "Galaxarium" (think planetarium, but, you know, for a galaxy) where guests will be invited to board a Nova ship to get a look at Earth from space.
Unfortunately--as things are wont to do when the Guardians are involved--something goes terribly wrong, and chaos ensues.
The coaster will feature the first-ever "reverse launch into space," so brace yourselves for some backward thrills.
The ride will function as a sort of satellite area, tying into the story of the Avengers Campus lands coming to both Anaheim and Paris. While Orlando will not be getting a full-fledged Marvel-themed land (that we know of yet, at least), Guardians Of The Galaxy Cosmic Rewind is featured on the map of Avengers attractions featured on the D23 Expo show floor.
