Additional Garbage Cans Installed at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind Unload as Motion Sickness Complaints Compound

Nearly a month after Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind officially opened to the public, Disney has installed additional garbage cans at the ride’s unload station as complaints about motion sickness continue to compound from guests.

Even during previews, the attraction quickly gained a reputation for causing motion sickness among guests due to its backwards launch and spinning around while on the coaster track. We’ve witnessed many guests resting inside Connections Eatery or on planters just outside the ride, complaining of sickness from the ride.

Garbage cans are located on both sides of the unload station in close proximity to disembarking guests. Two are installed per side.

It’s still a bit of a small target for potentially sick guests to hit. Motion sickness bags are also handed out by Cast Members to any guests exiting the ride who appear to be unwell.

  1. I rode it with no problems. It actually blew my mind that the ride causes motion sickness in so many when to me it was such a smooth ride. :)

  2. I really hope does not “dumb down” Cosmic Rewind just because a few guests get motion sickness. We went on it 3 times siting in various cars including the front car, front seats, back seats… and never had that feeling.
    There were plenty of warnings ahead of time and folks need to pay attention to these if they feel it might bother them.
    We just loved this attraction!

  3. I’m just not seeing the motion sickness issue. Don’t get me wrong. I am NOT a roller coaster person at all. But my wife is and I refuse to be a wet blanket on her vacations. Cosmic Rewind is a totally unique roller coaster experience. I found it EASIER to take than Expedition Everest and I have never heard any complaints about motion sickness on it.

  4. This is completely disgusting. Potentially walking on or in other people’s vomit is a level of experience nearly 100% of us never want to experience. Why the hell would Disney design such a ride? Furthermore, why would anyone want to experience this? Hard pass for me…

  5. They should slow the ride down a milisecond, you couldn’t even see how the story that started in the queue, ended!!! I was dizzy and nauseous for three hours! I had to hang tough for my niece and nephew who wanted to enjoy Epcot. I rode the ride twice, the first and the last time!

    They should have more seating area than trash cans.maybe even medical personnel.
