Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind

EPCOT is undergoing some major renovations and one of the top things that people are looking forward to opening is the NEW Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind ride!

This all-new family-thrill coaster launches May 27, so if you are planning a Disney World vacation in June and beyond, you will have the opportunity to ride it!

Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind

Located in the park’s new World Discovery neighborhood, Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind will be found in the Wonders of Xandar Pavilion.

Wonders of Xandar Pavilion

In the Wonders of Xandar pavilion, guests can learn about the Xandarians. The back story is that Xandarairan traveled from their homeworld in the Andromeda galaxy to Earth (they refer to it as Terra) to build the Wonders of Xandar pavilion.

In The Galaxarium, which is similar to a Planetarium, you will be able to see planets, stars and other intergalactic wonders that connect Terra and Xandar.

The Xandar Gallery teaches guests about the Xandarian people, culture and history. Displays featuring the heroes of Xandar will be a main focal point.

Also, we know that there will be an exhibit called I am Groot. While it hasn’t been confirmed, I would imagine that this will be a meet & greet area.

Back when Guardians of the Galaxy was released, there was a meet & greet for Star Lord & Groot at EPCOT. I am guessing that since this has already been an experience at the park that it will now be featured in the Wonders of Xandar Pavilion.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind Ride

As the first rollercoaster at EPCOT, Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind is going to be pretty spectacular.

First, this rollercoaster is an enclosed coaster. It will be in the old Ellen’s Energy Adventure building which is close to Spaceship Earth.

This is great for Disney World guests because it means it will be air conditioned and won’t shut down when the afternoon rain hits in Orlando.

The Epcot rollercoaster will be the first reverse launch for a Disney coaster. That is pretty incredible! Now, you can understand why it is named, Cosmic Rewind!

Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is also one of the longest fully enclosed coasters in the world, which means that you will get to enjoy a long ride time after all that time you spend in a line.

Guardians of the Galaxy is also known for its mixed tape! You better believe you will be hearing plenty of vintage tunes with Rollercoaster of Love being a predominate feature!
