Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, an indoor roller coaster, will make its debut at Epcot on Memorial Day weekend, Walt Disney World announced Monday.

It will open on May 27 and will take its place as one of the world’s largest indoor roller coasters.

The resort also released a 30-second commercial spot for the new attraction that features characters from the Guardians movie series in an Epcot setting. The footage includes a glimpse of Spaceship Earth, the Cosmic Rewind ride vehicles and scenes of something gone horribly wrong: Things are disappearing.

“It’s save the galaxy time … again,” says Rocket Raccoon, voiced by Bradley Cooper in the films. In Guardians of the Galaxy mixtape tradition, the shots are accompanied by the Ohio Players’ song Love Rollercoaster.

The Guardians ride is the first addition to Epcot since Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure ride and Harmonious, a nighttime spectacular, arrived Oct. 1. Disney is also constructing a “Tron”-themed coaster for Magic Kingdom although no opening date has been announced.
