Saving the galaxy this time is going to take more than a dance. From May 27, 2022, visitors toEPCOT to Walt Disney World Resort better get ready to drop the mixtape and embark on a stunning intergalactic chase through time and space in Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind !
Embark on Cosmic Rewind
This thrilling new roller coaster showcases the grandeur and fun of the blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy movies, starring legendary cosmic outlaws Rocket, Groot, Drax, Gamora and Star-Lord (aka Peter Quill) . This innovative attraction is another major step in the transformation of the park EPCOT and opens as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World Resort.
Located in the new area WorldDiscovery of the park, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is the first pavilion ofEPCOT open to a ” other world “. The Xandarians traveled from their homeworld in the Andromeda Galaxy to Earth, or Terra as they call it, to create the ‘Wonders of Xandar’ pavilion, inviting visitors toEPCOT to learn more about their people and their advanced technologies… until something goes wrong and the Xandarians call on the Guardians of the Galaxy for help.
If you want to ensure that the experience remains a complete surprise on the day you visit Florida, read no further below. Here is the complete tour of the attraction and its scenario.
Star-Lord visited EPCOT as a child and enjoyed the experience so much that he suggested the park disney as the perfect place for Xandarians to connect with Earthlings.
The “Wonders of Xandar” pavilion consists of three main sections:
The Galaxarium is a vast planetarium-style space featuring planets, stars, and other intergalactic wonders that connect Terra and Xandar, reinforcing the idea that we were all born from the same space dust.
The Xandarian supercomputer, Worldmind, provides narration in the Galaxarium and gives context to the stunning visuals.
In the Xandar Gallery, visitors learn about the people, culture, and history of Xandar – including the heroes of Xandar – through specially curated exhibits, including models of starships and a Xandarian city.
The gallery also features clips from “Good Morning Xandar,” where a host interviews the Guardians of the Galaxy about their heroic deeds.
The pavilion tour ends in The Phase Chamber, where guests instantly teleport fromEPCOT to a Nova Corps Starcharter cruiser orbiting Earth.
Here they discover the Cosmic Generator, a Xandarian technology that creates jump points – man-made tunnels in space allowing rapid travel over great distances.
Upon reaching the Starcharter, visitors quickly realize that things don’t go as planned – or even 12% of a plan – when a massive being appears outside the ship…
Eson, a Celestial, has been observing Earth for eons and now intends to use the Cosmic Generator to turn back time and change the course of humanity. Nova Prime Irani Rael orders his superior officer, the Centurion Tal Marikto immediately contact the Guardians of the Galaxy and ask for their help (again).
Earthlings must evacuate the ship via Starjumper shuttles – small escape pods that launch from the Starcharter cruiser. When the Guardians arrive on the scene, they reprogram the Starjumpers so the visitors can help them find Eson, following the Celestial through a jump point on an intergalactic pursuit to save the galaxy. As Drax so simply points out as the visitors prepare for their journey… if they can’t help stop Eson, “then you are probably doomed”.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind offers several exclusives, including:
- The first roller coaster attraction in EPCOT.
- The first reverse launch for a coaster disney.
- The first Disney Omnicoasterwhere vehicles make controlled rotations to keep visitors focused on the action.
- The first attraction of Walt Disney World to highlight the Guardians of the Galaxy.
And, just like the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind comes with a soundtrack – or “poetic sorcery”, as Gamora would say (or, rather, as the press release of disney who cites it) – in the fabric of his experience. The attraction’s vehicles with on-board audio play tunes from the 70s and 80s as visitors travel through the cosmos.
The Imagineers disney tested one hundred potential songs for the attraction and used a combination of virtual and physical rides to assess which tracks best matched the spirit and motion of the roller coaster, ultimately choosing six songs in their original classic versions:
- “Disco Inferno”
- “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”
- “I Ran”
- “One Way or Another”
However, visitors won’t know which song they’ll hear every time they board this intergalactic coaster with the Guardians.
The Broker is waiting for you at the store Treasures of Xandar at the exit of the attraction. Guests can search for Guardians of the Galaxy-themed clothing, accessories, home decor, collectibles, and toys in the Treasures of Xandar store, located in the Wonders of Xandar pavilion. The Xandarians have hired The Broker to operate this new merchandise location on Terra, which is launching several new product lines, but more information can be found here.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind opens its doors on May 27, 2022 at EPCOT.
