Hey Thrill Seekers.
I think it’s safe to say (for now) that we were pretty spot on with our thoughts on the ride system being used for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy coaster at Epcot set to open in 2021.
Today at IAAPA Disney showed an image of what the ride cars will look like along with a short video of one in use which will ‘direct your eye to the story’. Bob Chapek also gave us an insight into the sheer size of this attraction by informing us that you can fit 4 Spaceship Earths inside the show building. Yep that’s right.. 4!!
The coaster still doesn’t have a name but will be the first ‘storytelling’ coaster as riders will be fully immersed in the story due to the revolutionary ride system allowing riders to see all of the props and theming without missing half of the story because its on the other side of the tracks.
The new cars will be the first ever to be fully motion-controlled and will feature a 360-degree spinning motion so that the ride can control where guests are looking.
