The ride will be the first rollercoaster in the Epcot park.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, the long-anticipated first roller coaster at Walt Disney World’s Epcot park, will be opening in 2022. The ride was originally announced in 2017, and while Disney hasn’t given an official release date for the ride, they had previously confirmed that the ride would be open during Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary, which begins on October 1st.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be one of the longest enclosed coasters in the world, a storycoaster that will rotate 360 degrees, and will be the first reverse launch coaster in Disney history. The story for the ride will apparently involve a young Peter Quill/Star-Lord visiting Epcot, while also celebrating the history of the park, in addition to being a Guardians of the Galaxy adventure through time and space. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director James Gunn has previously announced that he is filming material specifically for the ride.
