EPCOT’s New Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind Roller Coaster is Causing Motion Sickness For a Fair Amount of Guests
The newest attraction at EPCOT has not officially opened, but guests and Cast Members have been enjoying previews of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind for a few weeks now. However, many are reporting motion sickness after riding.
The the first roller coaster the history of EPCOT and the first reverse launch coaster for Disney also features rotating ride vehicles. Many who have ridden say the coaster is very smooth, but causes motion sickness even if they don’t typically experience it. This can be typical if a guest is disoriented on a ride, which is very likely given the mild spinning and high-speed travel through a dark building filled with bright white stars.
Many guests are unaffected, but a seemingly large number were reporting symptoms including mild to moderate dizziness and nausea. We witnessed many guests resting inside Connections Eatery or on planters just outside the ride, complaining of sickness from the ride.
