Most guests entering the ride will have no idea that they are going to be launched into the sky blue building in the background.
OMG! The ride's so much bigger on the inside!!
And imagine that 99% of the people don't realize Crush Coaster is an actual coaster... since they assume it stays tame like the small part outside and ignore the huge blue box behind it. Crush Coaster is fun if you ride it with unknowing people ;)

These are the same people that walked by 9455 different spinning warnings on M:S only to exclaim "I did not know it was a spinning ride!":)

And the signage says "Crushes Coaster."
Guardians isn't going to be called Guardians Coaster, and no coaster element is visible from the outside - so those who don't know what it is ahead of time will really not know.

Well Disney always puts signage up explaining the experience you're about to get. Now if people actually read those signs is another question altogether

Is anyone else baffled that Disney is releasing this much behind the scenes glimpses including an actual video of the ride system in action this early? This most likely won't open until 2022 correct? I make fun of Universal for keeping their cards a bit too close to their vest but this just seems like overkill. We now know what the ride vehicles look like, how they'll move and behave on the track, and what a portion of the interior layout looks like. Aside from set decoration there aren't many secrets left.

Also, put me in the column of people excited for this ride regardless BUT what exactly is "groundbreaking" about these ride vehicles? I know it's partially PR-speak but controlled spinning isn't new to coasters and while Escape From Gringotts is more dark-ride than coaster, that ride system has a combination of controlled spinning, a tilt-track, AND the patented motion base track below that's used in two show-scenes.

No doubt this ride will be a blast but "groundbreaking" it won't be and Disney Parks using that word is truly dishonest.

There's been pictures and video of the ride system testing all the way back into 2018 but I'm sure they're just ramping up the PR now to keep hype out there. For as big of a project this is, it's easy to forget about. UoE closed in 2017 and without video and regular updates, most visitors would probably forget about it. It's going to take nearly 5 years for a coaster. Half a decade. It's nuts.

Groundbreaking? They aren't Intamin so they'll actually work reliably without needing a year of bug fixes and tweaks. F.L.Y. uses a version of this ride system and has been reliably operating for two months so far.

The real groundbreaking part is probably the whole story coaster/omnicoaster spiel they keep saying.

It is indeed electronic and computer controlled unlike the mechanical system of X2 or Haunted Mansion. Just hope it has a fail safe mode more like Forbidden Journey and less like Mermaid.

What's the fail safe on Mermaid? Just point forward or flail aimlessly in whatever direction gravity pulls like a slow moving tilt-a-whirl?
