CONFIRMED: Guardians of the Galaxy Ride at Epcot Will Be A Roller Coaster
As we have rumored on this site for some time, the Guardians of the Galaxy Ride coming to Epcot will indeed be a roller coaster attraction.
The Vice President of Epcot, Melissa Valiquette, confirmed that the attraction is a coaster to members of the media at the Epcot 35 celebration yesterday.
According to sources, the roller coaster will load guests in the former Universe of Energy attraction, launching guests through a tunnel into a 10-story tall show building. The coaster will reportedly be a first of its kind ride system, but it remains unclear how it will differ from a conventional ride.
The attraction will mark the very first roller coaster for Epcot in its 35 year history, the last remaining Disney Park on earth without one.
