Splashes of “space remnants” recently revealed to be a cosmic distruption can be seen in front of the attraction, thanks to the Collector’s fortress warping the ground immediately surrounding the alien stronghold.

Speaking of the Collector, Guests are met with a statue of him while they wait in the all-outdoor queue.

A cosmic disruption oozes from the grounds surrounding the attraction as umbrellas partially cover the queue.

While the indoor queue features many of the Collector’s prized possessions, including Cosmo the Space Dog, brought to life by audio-animatronics technology and other recognizable artifacts from the MARVEL Universe, this entire portion is walked through.

A Cast Member with a face shield and mask, of course, lets Guests know that the main pre-show is skipped. While there is no pre-show, there is signage in the boiler room area that tells the story of what the pre-show is all about. The signage is on the wall to your left as you are moved thru the queue.

The astonishing pre-show that takes place in the Collector’s office with Rocket Raccoon is currently stopped due to physical distancing practices.

Plexiglass? Seriously? It’s as if no one has learned anything since the virus emerged. The fear it induced is unreal. That plexiglass is going to do little to nothing. Wearing your mask has 95% effectiveness at 3 ft+. Just wear your mask and don’t board every row, easy peasy.
