PHOTO - Ride vehicles arrive at EPCOT's Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

Walt Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley today shared a photo of the ride vehicles from the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

Zach said, "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."

Dubbed the 'omincoaster,' the rollercoaster vehicles are unique in that they can rotate 360 degrees and will launch in reverse. Each vehicle seats 4 in a 2x4 configuration with individual lap bars. We believe that each train will be comprised of 5 coaches, but this not yet confirmed.

my guess would be no solar panels -- I believe this view or angle gives an idea of what the roof may look like (assuming the grey panels are the last element.)

It has, that's why they replaced the roof. ;)

I’m more surprised nothing has leaked from Wonders. Not a floor plan, not a single photo from the inside, nothing. I haven’t seen a thing since interior demolition first started, seems like something would’ve leaked by now.

Not much to show in this screen filled coaster, at least not much to show that’s worth risking your job.

I may have missed a bit here and there, but this project has seemed to manage to stay under wraps pretty well. We’ve had a pic of the ride vehicle and a deliberately ambiguous sketch of the ride path. Seems more would have leaked by now.

I would think someone would leak pictures if that were the case.

I wonder how true the rumors are that the interior of the building and ride are basically done and just need footage of the Guardians.

Interesting item popped up in my social media feed yesterday... Guardians 3 is filming in the Atlanta/North Georgia area and they put out a casting call for extras. Filming dates are Nov 8, 2021 - March, 2022.

Racoons keep scratching up the roof

No one knows. The roof of Energy keeps getting new layer after layer. The roof of WoL keeps getting replaced. No one who has knowledge has said why.

Sorry, a bit late to the update party. So the roof is definitely not going to be solar panels?

I'd like it to be open by May 2022 but I won't get my hopes up.

We have a trip planned for the first week of May and I’m not thinking it will be open. Technically Spring doesn’t end until June 21 and I’ve seen them push those seasonal openings until the very last weekend. 😞

I read your tracker, but thought there might be something more firm. Planning the first week of May, so it should line up in guessing
