Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind – Epcot – Attraction Checklist #137

September 26, 2022 |

http://www.attractionchecklist.com –

It’s time to rewind time as we ride Epcot’s newest attraction Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, not once but twice on this episode of Attraction Checklist.

Attraction audio recorded on July 13, 2022.

TRANSCRIPT:

Welcome to Attraction Checklist.

We are super excited because we are finally bringing you one of the most requested Attraction Checklist episode of the year, a look at Epcot’s new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

The guide map describes this attraction saying, “Team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy on an intergalactic race through space and time.”

Guests must be 42” or wallet to ride and the thrill level describes the attraction as being a Thrill Ride in the Dark.

Before we head off to the Galaxarium, here are five fast facts about Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

1. Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind officially opened at Epcot on May 27, 2022.

2. The attraction is build on the site of the former Ellen’s Energy Adventure attraction which we covered on Episode 31 of this show.  That ride was built in the former Universe of Energy show building and that show building was reused and retrofitted for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind thought the bulk of the attraction is housed in a giant blue show building behind the Universe of Energy building.

3.  Much like Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout at Disney California Adventure which we covered in episode 32 of Attraction Checklist, guests riding Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, guests hear one of six different songs.  The possible songs are “September” by Earth, Wind and Fire, “Disco Inferno” by the Trammps, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Tears for Fears”, One Way or Another” by Blondie, “I Ran (So Far Away)” by A Flock of Seagulls and “Conga” by Gloria Estefan

4. Composer Tyler Bates, who scored the Guardians of the Galaxy films created more than two hours on new music for the attraction and he even put in a little nod to the original Universe of Energy song.

5. On June 23, 2022, it was announced that Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind would receive a Christmas Overlay with a mash-up of seasonal songs.

Let’s go save the planet with the Guardians of the Galaxy.  Joining me today is John B. deHaas and, as mentioned at the top of the show, we’re going to go for two rides and we’ll review them both so stay tuned for that.  This is a binaural recording so if you have headphones put them on now as we ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT
