PHOTOS: Epcot’s Guardians of the Galaxy Roller Coaster Show Building Nearly Enclosed, Universe of Energy Facade Being Prepared

Just last month, the side of the show building for the new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction at Epcot was still wide-open as they were installing track in the launch tunnel. Now that the installation in that section of the building is about finished, they’ve started sealing up the side of the building.

The view from the ground shows the building almost completely enclosed.

From a bit higher up, we can cranes are hard at work installing panels to shield the inside of the building from view. You can see they’re matching the colors from the other sides to make the building “disappear” in the tree line.

The back side of the Universe of Energy building is still open, as they still need to load props and materials in. I would imagine this will be open for a while.

The opposite side of the launch tunnel is still open, but that can only be seen from one spot in the park.

Other work is happening on the facade (and former Universe of Energy building).

Looks like they’re patching up some damage on the side of the building. I can’t wait to see what this building looks like when they’re done. I’m tired of looking into an empty warehouse.

Even though the building will be sealed from our view, we know they have a lot of track left to install. We even spotted a piece of it being delivered to the construction site recently.

The ride will use an innovative rotating car design, and will definitely be one of the more thrilling attractions in the park once it opens sometime in 2021. Are you looking forward to seeing the Guardians of the Galaxy at Epcot? Keep with us for future updates!
