Fan Reports Ride Shut Down

According to one guest, the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction recently closed down after one alleged guest incident. The user shared the story to Reddit, saying:

Video Stunt Shut Down Cosmic Rewind

We were waiting to load onto Cosmic Rewind for our last ride of tonight’s After Hours event. An 18yo videoed his 19yo friend running down the loading area and next to the track of Cosmic Rewind. This obviously tripped an alarm and shut down the ride. The runner was escorted out. The video taker remained on the ride and continued videoing himself the whole time while the ride was reset. He claimed that he didn’t know his friend was gonna do it, and that the reason his friend did it was that he really had to pee. I feel so bad for everyone who was affected by these two selfish jerks, especially the poor cast members. I’m so grateful the CMs went through the full reset process, which took probably 30 minutes, and let the rest of the line ride, including us. We got September, and it was a great way to end our night!

Whether or not this incident really happened is not known, but if it is real, this incident is certainly an example of bad behavior. Bad guest behavior can become very dangerous for Disney cast members, and it is critical that we remember to treat the theme park with respect.
