Disney roller coaster patent hints at Epcot ride

A new patent from The Walt Disney Co. has many fans curious if it's for the new Guardians of the Galaxy ride at Epcot. The patent, dubbed “Roller Coaster with Passenger Compartment Motion Powered Through Stored Onboard Energy,” appears to provide an enhancement to the coaster ride car that includes being able to rotate a car on a horizontal axis while also providing the power the system needs to perform those turns throughout the ride.
