A few weeks ago, the first piece of the building that will house the Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster at Epcot went up. Over the past few days, crews have begun erecting some of the large walls that will enclose the roller coaster. These walls are enormous already and haven’t reached their full height yet; this is just over halfway. The structure is visible from inside of Epcot, near the side of the Universe of Energy Building and Wonders of Life. With the structure about half its overall height and already visible, we are unsure how Disney plans to mask this enormous warehouse.
Let’s take a look from outside of the park first. These are all from within guest areas; none were taken backstage.
It’s going to be massive. Now, let’s turn our attention to in the park. To the right of Energy, you can see the structure just behind the small trees. Once more height gets added, it’ll be difficult to mask.
Looking up towards Wonders of Life, you can easily see the building.
Forgive the focus.
Excited yet? We’re so close, yet so far away from Peter Quill’s happy energy fun times or whatever name they decide to use for the attraction.
