An unexpected announcement came during Epcot’s 35th anniversary. We already knew that a Guardians of the Galaxy attraction was on its way, but now we have some more information.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Epcot VP Melissa Valiquette made an announcement during her speech at the anniversary celebration. The big announcement was that the attraction will be a roller coaster. She said construction has been going on inside at the former location of Ellen’s Energy Adventure, adding that guests will see more signs of construction in the next few months in the park.
Currently, there is no opening date that has been announced for Guardians of the Galaxy, but it’s encouraging to know that the construction has started. Epcot does not currently have a roller coaster, so this is good news for a lot of guests. The closest thing to a roller coaster in Epcot would be Test Track. So, this will add another thrill ride to the attraction list.
The addition of a Guardians of the Galaxy attraction was met with mixed reactions. Some are glad to see Epcot getting some attention and getting a refresh. However, others are do not want to see another movie attraction in Epcot.
What do you think about the addition of a Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster?
