As many know of you know him already of Bob Chapek, Chairman of Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products showed off some more details about the Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster coming towards Epcot at a breakfast at IAAPA 2018.
This will be another indoor roller coaster at the resort and in which Chapek showed off the ride vehicles that will be built by the Dutch roller coaster company, Vekoma. This project is on a scale unlike anything Disney has done before and the foundation with the tons of concrete being poured into it, is beyond overwhelming with the massive show building that can be seen all across World Showcase at Epcot.

Chapek said “You can fit four Spaceship Earths inside of the ride’s show building!”
He also went on and commented on how the roller coaster will perform and stating that,
“This will be a coaster unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before. We call it a storytelling coaster. But on this attraction, each individual cab will be programmed to direct your eye to the story happening around you. Instead of whizzing by the action, you’ll be fully immersed in the story from the minute you launch,” said Chapek.
