For over two years on DSNY Newscast, I’ve been tracking the development of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” first of its kind storytelling rollercoaster coming to Epcot by 2021.
And today, thanks to photos by Sjaak van Horne, who posted these photos on the ThemePark.nl forums, we have our first glimpse at the ride vehicles for the Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction. However, I just want to clarify that the photos that were posted by Sjaak van Horne, are not photos of the coaster at Epcot, but instead they are from the Vekoma manufacturing facility in the Netherlands.
In November 2018, we also received test footage that was officially shown at Destination D, that was of the innovative storytelling coaster in action at the same location in the Netherlands, as Vekoma is the manufacturer of this particular coaster, along with the TRON Lightcyle Run attraction coming to Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland.
However, with regards to DSNY Newscast, we dived into greater depth on the concept art officially released by Disney at D23 Expo 2019, and uncovered details relating to the attraction’s probable storyline, and narrative device, which can be seen in the video below.
