Epcot’s first roller coaster has now been named!

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is described as a “story-telling coaster” and will have cabs that spin and turn throughout the ride, keeping you immersed in the story happening around you. The cars are modeled after the Guardians of the Galaxy Milano Starship and the coaster will be housed in a building large enough to fit four of Epcot’s Spaceship Earth’s inside.

The ride has been previewed with spinning cars across a twisted course and will begin with a “reverse launch.” The coaster is set to launch in 2021.
