Disney released a video of offsite Omnicoaster vehicle testing for Epcot’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind as well as a photo of the ride vehicle. The coaster looks like it will be very fun in the same way Crush’s Coaster is at Disneyland Paris. Disney calls it a family-friendly “storytelling coaster” featuring a groundbreaking ride system with vehicles that rotate 360 degrees and can even do a reverse launch! Here is the photo and then video below it. There is no date announced for opening.
On the Disney Parks Blog today, it says:
The Omnicoaster is a first- of-its-kind programmable roller coaster ride system, where guests can be rotated along the ride track in any direction while traveling at high speeds. The Omnicoaster name builds upon the tradition of the Omnimover ride system in which Walt Disney Imagineers are able to turn guests in any direction and focus their attention on a specific scene or element.
