Theme Park Insider has a fantastic tour of the queue with Imagineer Joe Rohde, who is basically the lead on all of the MARVEL theme park projects. The video includes both attraction pre-shows for you to enjoy, including a look at the AWESOME Rocket Raccoon audio-animatronic figure:

No video of the on-ride portion is available yet, but IGN offers a really good review of the on-ride experience and 4 of the 6 ride profiles/soundtracks:

My favorite part of all this news about the attraction today? These somewhat psychotic press photos of “guests” on the ride…

  • Been going to WDW all of my 32 years. I love Tower, I love Twilight Zone and I’m glad we still have it here. That said, they did a great job with this. ToT in DCA was always lacking something, this appears to fix that. Guardians is a strong franchise and from the preshows this looks like a more full experience. Looks like they nailed it here.

  • It looks great and I can’t wait to try it in just over a month. Joe R really needs to fix his ear and get rid of that long earring. He doesn’t need it to stand out in life….his talent is what makes him shine.
