    I am very interested to now know if Universal and Disney made an agreement for a revision of the contract or not.

    I really hope that it's going to be a coaster instead of another screen based ride / simulator

    So.. do we know what the ride system actually is? If it was a coaster i'd have expected them to show it off.

    Edit: All that talk about young families an i cant see it being a coaster..

    Interesting to see some of the verbiage used in PR.

    "A brand new E-ticket attraction based on the rockin’ and action-packed world of Guardians of the Galaxy"

    Rockin' Rollercoaster clone #doubleconfirmed!!!

    Seriously though I wouldn't expect to know the details of the ride yet. It's called marketing, and Disney is amazing at it.

    Yeah - that's not where I was going with it.

    It's not a GOTG attraction per se - but an attraction based on the world of GOTG.

    That ship in the concept art in front of the UoE building is from a planet called Nova from the movies. Maybe it's the location of the ride as well?

    Aug 13th is a busy day for killing attractions that use the same vehicle ride technology.

    Well since the Nova Blaster appear outside prominently and then again in what appears to be the preshow with the full cast (Peter and Gamora inside one, Groot and Rocket outside with the audience) I'm assuming it plays a major role in the attraction.

    Maybe we're new Nova cadets? Nova Blasters can link together to form a shield, have blasters that can shoot of course, and tractor beams to move people and things as needed.

    Anyone else think maybe interactive darkride parts..?

    Well regardless of what our stance was regarding the rumor, we know there was going to be limitations if it did come to fruition. I'm just noticing the PR speak is sort of dancing around a bit. Could be nothing at end of the day.

    The ride will still have the Guardians. Although it's shown everyone but Drax - which most of us have thought would be the trickiest to show up.

    Put Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular on suicide watch. It uses the same system as Energy and GMR.

    The only sliver of hope I'm clinging to regarding this attraction is what they said about Peter Quill being an Epcot fan. I'm 95% sure that was thrown in there for pure, pandering fan service and will have no bearing whatsoever on the ride, but maybe... just maybe... it's going to be relevant somehow.

    Well the Nova Corps gain knowledge and information access from a sort of hive mind thingy as they rank up - so maybe we're there for some learning.
