We previously announced that a new Guardians of the Galaxy themed attraction would be coming to Epcot at Walt Disney World. The new attraction is expected to be one of the world’s longest enclosed roller coasters. The new building where the roller coaster will be housed is right next to the existing Universe of Energy building. In order to create the foundation at the new location, there were 960 trucks of concrete that were poured! The attraction will be inspired by the Guardians of the Galaxy films and be based on a story line that will be developed by Walt Disney Imagineering with input from the makers of the films.
Here is a look at the video released by Disney Parks Blog:
This new roller coaster attraction is set to open in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary celebration. If you are anxious for a little bit of Guardians of the Galaxy sooner than that, you will be able to check out the Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live at Epcot this summer as part of Walt Disney World’s Incredible Summer. The event will take place at the America Gardens Theatre at the American Adventure pavilion within Epcot’s World Showcase. It will be running five time a day from June 9th through August 19th.
We will post more updates on the amazing roller coaster attraction as soon as we have them?
Who else can’t wait for this amazing themed coaster to finally open?
