This got me thinking, although wrong thread I know sorry, but they took out everything that was nice in that park. Gone is sids at the front which was really themed and fun to shop/browse in,,I used to love hearing the old radio loops that played in there.... the writers stop shop by scifi, the disney gallery in the front of what was animation,,,,,what is left is just generic or toddler merch with all the same old stuff in whats left. And of course they were too cheap to give toy story land its own actual shop, instead sweet spells had to go for it, complete wrong location!
Management has really dropped the ball when it comes to cohesion and what use to be different things.
I *always* insisted on going into Sid's.

I don't like what they've done to the shops on Sunset, either. They just don't get it. They, sadly, just look at these things differently than we do. I'm sure there's a lot of people within that hate these decisions. No one even bothers to look at the theming in the stores or on the ceilings so why should the average guest care? This is why they can often do what they want.

But then people think we're just being negative or looking for problems ...

My biggest Sid's regret was not buying the can of Jump orange soda they had from one of my all-time favorite films.

Question: does the launch occur within the Energy building and shoot the vehicles into the new building? Or is there a slower conveyance into the new building and the launch occurs there?

To add to that, it is a Vekoma Controlled Spin ride system.
Thank you! That helps!


Adam Warlock was teased at the end of GotG2. Since the coaster will be coming out after the third movie, I think there’s a pretty good chance of him being in the ride (like Mantis out in Mission Breakout).
Look, I just..I want him so bad. He was in the Collector's place, too. His cocoon. I just
Need it

You just don't get it. First off, everyone knows "Disney Coasters" must be built into a mountain. If not, all coaster track must be hidden in a giant building that's so dark inside you can't see the track. And said giant building must be invisible. Any deviation from said rules obviously means 6 Flags quality. Geez, this isn't rocket science.

And don't get me started on colored water slides. Quote

Let's keep this thread politically correct........ Those are water slides of color! :rolleyes:
 
A launch out of the old Energy pavilion and in to the new coaster building would be an excellent experience providing it's all enclosed or had a covering ala Tron Light Cycle Run.

If it is a controlled rotation cart then I would imagine they are going to use The Milano as the ride vehicle inspiration as in the films that has a large degree of rotation / hover etc ability.

You are correct.
Would we call the new building the gravity building if the launch occurred there? I suspect not but I'm not a coaster expert.

f it is a controlled rotation cart then I would imagine they are going to use The Milano as the ride vehicle inspiration as in the films that has a large degree of rotation / hover etc ability.
I think it would be even more rotational fun to be in one of the escape pods, like the one that Rocket, Thor, and Groot took to Nidavellir.

Even Rocket got a bit of motion sickness when Thor swung the escape pod around to restart the forge.

Or maybe the mining pods from the first guardians movie?

I think this ride gets re themed to be a general "cosmic" marvel universe attraction.

Marvel were always heading to more cosmic centric storyline after Phase 3. Now they seem likely to just make Infinity War the ending for the Guardians as we knew them. But they still have Thor, Rocket, Nebula, Strange, Captain Marvel and whatever surprise characters they could shoehorn in for next year's Avengers movie (maybe a big villain set-up for the next phases... Galactus?)

It just seems like they could easily change the theme of this without really changing anything. You can still have the Collector, Rocket, Strange, Captain Marvel, Nebula and then just sub in a Hemsworth Chris for a Pratt Chris.

And obviously "snapped" characters are coming back like Spider Man and Black Panther, but it seems like an easy out for Disney to just choose to tie-up the classic guardians story.
