    I hope it will be very intense, at least as much as RNRC!

    We don’t need another intense ride right next to Mission Space

    Something that appeals to a wider range of guests is preferred

    I'm hoping for something like big Thunder level intensity. Something the whole family can do. Maybe crank it up a notch with an inversion or two.

    I too am surprised at the lack of inversions, but I see the logic. This is NOT an attempt to get into a coaster war. This is an attempt to bring a family coaster (the likes of which is in every other Disney park) to Epcot.

    Terrible. As if my interest in this ride wasn't low enough. I was expecting something like RnRC but we're getting something like Space Mountain? Ugh.

    So more in the vein of Gringotts?

    I'm happy with a modern tale on SM if it's somewhat like De La Terre A La Lune

    Well, sounds more like Thunder or Everest in terms of intensity, and it's a train, not a toboggan. And while it does sound like a lot of it is going to simply be 'coaster in the dark', Guardians is such an eye-popping, colorful franchise....

    @marni1971, do you think we could hope for the coaster track to be weaving around a convoluted barricade of colorful sets (a la From the Earth to the Moon)? Or is it mostly empty space with track and screens?

    Even worse. Oh my gosh, I can't believe Disney could let me down any more with this attraction :grumpy:

    "More Disney, more relevant and timeless, more family friendly."

    The expectation of an intense adult coaster was unfounded.

    Reminds me of when some thought Seven Dwarfs Mine Train was going to be the second coming of Everest.

    Right - although I wouldn't blame someone for assuming an attraction based on PG-13 characters was going to be more teen friendly than family friendly.

    Maybe there will just be more "parentally guided" pre-show material?

    I dunno. Maybe people thought Guardians of the Galaxy already violates the "timeless" bit so it could potentially violate the "family friendly" bit too.

    At this point, I'm skeptical of anything Disney claims about an upcoming attraction...sometimes even the obvious, "yes, we're building it".
