Last week I posted the above picture and asked for guesses as to where it is located. There were some great guesses, but one person knew where to find these lights.
Congratulations to Caroline, who knew the lights can be found in the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind queue line. This new ride is located in EPCOT and has quickly become a favorite ride among those who love thrill rides. To ride this ride guests can either snag a spot in the virtual queue or purchase the lightning lane option for this ride. If you like fast roller coasters this one is for you. Many people find themselves smiling ask they spin and race around the track.
As with all the Disney rides, the experience begins the second you enter the queue line. The line wraps around a dimly lit room with a screen on the ceiling. That screen shows different images of space, but it doesn’t just show pictures. At different times it will show videos for guests to watch explaining similarities and differences between Earth and Xandar. Plus there are different things to see while in line. In addition to the screen in the big waiting area, the line twists and turns past other displays in smaller rooms. Guests will see models of cities, spaceships, and outfits in these rooms. The queue line is nice, because so much of it is inside, so guests aren’t forced to stand outside in the heat for long periods of time.
After going through these rooms there are a few rooms with videos that guests will move through. This is like the rooms that guests go through before getting on the ride for Flight of Passage in Pandora at Animal Kingdom. A warning with one of these rooms though, there is a part that has flashing lights, like strobe lights, so if anyone in your party is sensitive to strobe lights I would either skip this ride or mention it to a cast member. I’m not sure if there is a way to skip this room, but it’s always worth asking.
Once through these last rooms, guests are ready to board the ride vehicles and help the Guardians of the Galaxy save the universe (again, as Rocket would say). Once the ride begins guests are in for a fast and fun experience. The ride vehicles twist and turn as they pass different scenes. There’s also different music that plays during the ride, so guests don’t know which track they’ll get to hear during their ride.
*Please note that this ride is dark, so if there is anyone in the party that doesn’t like dark rides this would be one for them to skip.
Congratulations to Caroline and thanks to everyone who played along. Another Where is it Wednesday picture will be up soon! Have you been on Guardians of the Galaxy? Which song did you get for your ride?
