Cosmic Rewind: Everything you need to know about Disney’s newest attraction.

Disney’s newest attraction, Cosmic Rewind is one of the first roller coasters in the world to feature a reverse launch.

Disney's newest attraction, Cosmic Rewind is one of the first roller coasters in the world to feature a reverse launch. The coaster will also feature Walt Disney Imagineering's first story-telling coaster vehicles that rotate 360 degrees to focus the action wherever it's happening inside the story.

With such a unique experience, it's only fitting that you're going to want to know everything about it: its opening date, ride stats and more. Let’s get started!







It is themed around Guardians of the Galaxy, and guests will get to see heros like Starlord, Gamora and Groot battle for possession of an Infinity Stone.

The Guardians of the Galaxy attraction is a 4-D thrill ride that takes place in the world of Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy. It is themed around Rocket Raccoon and Groot, who are trying to protect an Infinity Stone from everyone else who wants it.

The ride will take you through an action-packed adventure as you follow Star Lord, Gamora and Groot on their quest to stop Thanos from getting all six stones (they’re called Infinity Stones now). You’ll get lost in this immersive experience while riding on a roller coaster and seeing life-like animatronic characters up close.

You can find this new attraction at EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.


It features four launches in total, including one backward that sends riders through a series of inversions.

The coaster will also feature Walt Disney Imagineering's first story-telling coaster vehicles that rotate 360 degrees to focus the action wherever it's happening inside the story.

You'll be riding in vehicles that spin 360 degrees, allowing you to play an active role in the adventure. The Imagineers have designed this move to help you focus on what's happening around you and make for a more continuous story as opposed to going from one scene to another. It's also the first time this technology has been used on a Disney coaster!


The attraction was originally supposed to open in 2021 but it was delayed due to COVID-19.

You may have noticed that the original release date for Galaxy's Edge was 2021, but that has since been changed to 2022. Disney is citing "COVID-19," a computer virus that infects computers controlling the ride and causes it to malfunction, as being one of the reasons for this change in plans.

The bug was discovered by an anonymous hacker who leaked an early version of the attraction's code onto 4chan earlier this year. Upon further analysis, it became clear what had happened: COVID-19 mimicked human behavior so well that even experienced engineers were fooled into thinking they were interacting with people when actually speaking with a bot programmed to take over systems and wreak havoc on anything it could get its hands on.


At two times in the day, you'll join a digital queue for Cosmic Rewind even if there isn't a line for it yet.
