In a post on his official Instagram, Riddley shared a photo of two ride engineers prepping the vehicles at a warehouse in Florida.

Riddley also shared a unique fact about the ride vehicles – each one is unique, featuring their own different wear patterns and impact marks. This was inspired by the markings on NASA space shuttles and other spacecraft that appear upon reentry into our atmosphere.

This is our second look at the ride vehicles for the Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster under construction for Epcot. Back in September 2019, Disney shared a video showing off how the ride vehicles would spin to keep guests’ eyes on the action:

Disney has previously stated that Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind would open in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World in October 2021; however, with the ongoing pandemic causing delays in construction, it is unclear if the ride will stick to that opening timeline.
