Walt Disney World has teased a first look at the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind ride vehicles. The new Marvel attraction is making its way to Epcot.
Last month at D23 Expo 2019, the theme park resort released more information about the Cosmic Rewind ‘storytelling coaster’ as part of Epcot’s historic transformation.
Located at World Discovery, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be the first ‘other-world’ showcase pavilion at Epcot.
The adventure will begin in the ‘Galaxarium’, a planetarium exhibition, where guests will explore the formation of the Earth’s galaxy and Xandar, a fictional planet from Marvel.

As visitors learn more about Xandar, the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive to take them on a journey across the cosmos.
Cosmic Rewind will be a family-friendly ride with a groundbreaking ride system, vehicles that rotate 360 degrees and the first reverse launch on a Disney coaster.
As shown in the video above, provided by Walt Disney Imagineering, the attraction uses the OmniCoaster ride system.
The individual cabs will direct visitors’ eyes to the story happening around them, fully immersing them in the story.

Also coming to Epcot, World Showcase’s United Kingdom pavilion will feature the first attraction inspired by Mary Poppins.
Heading to World Nature are ‘The Land and The Seas with Nemo & Friends’ pavilions, as well as ‘Journey of Water’, inspired by Moana.
The first Moana attraction will be an exploration trail where visitors can meet and play with magical, living water, and learn about the natural water cycle.
D23 Expo 2019 also revealed more about upcoming theme park projects, including Frozen and Zootopia expansions, and a partnership with Cirque du Soleil.
