Photos Of EPCOT’s Guardians of the Galaxy Roller Coaster Cars

Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley has shared a first photo of the new ride vehicles for the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind coaster, which is now under construction at EPCOT.

Here is what Ridley had to say on his Instagram account:

Here is an exclusive sneak peek of two of our ride engineers as they prep some of EPCOT’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind vehicles at our warehouse in Florida. If you look closely at the colorful paint design on the vehicles (called coaches in roller coaster engineering parlance), each one is unique with different wear patterns and impact marks. Imagineers were inspired by markings that appear on NASA Space Shuttles and other spacecraft upon reentry into Earth’s atmosphere. We can’t wait to share more on this truly out-of-this-world, awesome attraction as we make progress on construction and put these coaches on the track!

This is the first time we have officially seen the actual ride vehicles.  Disney has had a small model of the coaster vehicles on display in the EPCOT experience:

The new ride vehicles are unique in that they will spin to direct the guests’ attention to different show elements.
