We have an exciting update on the “Guardians of the Galaxy” roller coaster coming to Epcot! Disney is reporting that 960 trucks’ worth of concrete was poured this week in Future World that will create the foundation of the giant “Guardians of the Galaxy” roller coaster. Once complete, the coaster will receive the honor of the world’s longest enclosed coaster. A new building is being built just to house the coaster while the now-closed Universe of Energy venue will house the queue for the attraction.

The coaster, of course, will be inspired by the popular “Guardians of the Galaxy” films and will expand on the original vision of Epcot’s Future World. The attraction will feature an epic storyline inspired by a collaboration between the makers of the films and Walt Disney Imagineering.

Take a look at the video to go behind the scenes of the progress:

Wow! Some of those statistics are out of this world!

An official opening date has not been announced for the “Guardians of the Galaxy” roller coaster but Disney confirm it will be open just in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary in 2021! In the meantime, “Guardians of the Galaxy” fans can still get their “fix” at Epcot. From June 9 to August August 10, Guests are invited to jam out with Star-Lord and Gamora on a musical journey through the cosmos with “Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live!” at the American Guardians Theater.
