“With the “Guardians of the Galaxy”-inspired coaster, we’re going big. This one-of-a-kind family attraction will be one of the world’s longest enclosed roller coasters when it’s added to Future World at Epcot. It’ll feature a unique story currently being created by Walt Disney Imagineering and include a new innovative ride system that’s guaranteed to “wow” guests.”
This will be the world’s longest indoor roller coasters ever built and in which Disney will be transforming Epcot that’s more family, more relevant, more timeless, and more Disney. Bob Chapek, Chairman of the Walt Disney Parks & Resorts commented about Epcot that, “As we build upon its core mission of optimism and hope to inspire the world, the real will become fantastic and the fantastic will become real—in whole new ways at Epcot.”
The attraction will be opening up some point for the 50th anniversary at Walt Disney World Resort in 2021 with no specific date released as of right now. For everything Disney Parks & Resorts and all other themed entertainment news, keep checking back here at SkywalkingAdventure.com
