PHOTOS: First Steel Frame for Guardians of the Galaxy Coaster Rises Up

This is a Guardians of the Galaxy Coaster Construction Update.  After just seeing the gigantic foundation poured for the Guardians of the Galaxy coaster in Epcot, the first steel frame for the attraction has now risen from it.  This is just the first part of the frame and we’ll be seeing lots of steel which will hold one of the largest indoor rollercoasters in the world!

As always @Bioreconstruct has taken some great photos so we can see the progress of the Guardians of the Galaxy project.  Let’s take a look!

Here you can see the steel frame for the Guardians of the Galaxy coaster:

This section of wall is for the Gravity building which will be the building the attraction will be in.  The rollercoaster will enter from the loading area here.  This is just the beginning though as the height for the Gravity building will be 12 stories when finished.  It will be interesting to see how much the Guardians of the Galaxy coaster building is visible from other areas in Epcot, for sure it will be seen from the parking lot and entrance plaza but probably from World Showcase too.

To help with all the steel frame construction on the Guardians coaster, a second crane was added to the construction site:

Now that the foundation for the Guardians coaster has been poured and the first part of the frame has gone up, we’ll really start to see some movement which will be more visible.  The Guardians of the Galaxy coaster has an expected opening date of 2020.  Stay tuned for more updates as they come out!
