Disney first announced a Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster at D23 Expo 2017 in Anaheim last summer— and now we’re learning more about it.
A D23 Expo Japan, Disney Parks Chairman Bob Chapek said the family-friendly attraction will feature a new innovative ride system that will “wow” guests.
This ride will be the first Marvel-based attraction at Walt Disney World and Disney says it will also be one of the longest enclosed roller coasters in the world.
“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.” -Bob Chapek, Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman
There is no official date for the opening of this new roller coaster, but Disney is planning to have it ready by the resort’s 50th anniversary in 2021.
To build hype around the ride, Star Lord will be tearing up the dance floor with a new show starting this summer: New Entertainment Offerings Coming to Walt Disney World Parks for ‘Incredible Summer’.
