The attraction that originally housed Ellen’s Universe of Energy, and will be now the home of wonders of Xandar pavilion that is still under construction. Creative Executives, Tom Fitzgerald and Scot Drake of Walt Disney Imagineering did share a preview of what’s the current progress of the attraction.

It’s basically combination of a omnimover and a roller coaster, that rotates 360-degrees, that focuses you on the story to help out the Guardians of the Galaxy. It also features the first reverse launch on a coaster in Disney history and is one of the longest enclosed coasters in the world. It’s a massive experience that will match the scale and adventure of the Guardians of the Galaxy films.
It will be in two show buildings as the big one is where the coaster track is located inside. While story details aren’t fully clear as, it’s been confirmed it will tie into the Big Bang theory and possible creation of the Infinity Stones.
