Lights Out – Ellen’s Energy’s Adventure Is Now Closed For Good.

At 7:00PM, Tonight, August 13th Ellen’s Energy Adventure shuts down for the last time. This 45 minute attraction was the second attraction of the pavilion since 1982. Running from 1996 until today, Ellen’s Energy Adventure had been loved by many. Some have loved based on nostalgia and some for an afternoon nap.

Although throughout the past few years, attendance of the attraction has dwindled down. This attraction will be missed. Touring Plans has the chart below showing the average wait-time for this attraction.

This chart shows you roughly how long you’ll wait for Ellen’s Energy Adventure when you visit on a day with a given Epcot Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average “peak” wait time (that is, how long the line will be at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it’s the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Ellen’s Energy Adventure Wait Times.

It is no wonder that something had to change to absorb more guests. At D23 this year, Bob Chapek, Disney Parks Chairman, announced a new E-Ticket attraction would be coming to EPCOT. A Guardians of the Galaxy attraction specifically which would be taking over Ellen’s Energy Adventure. Nothing specifically has been announced as to what exactly the attraction will be. Rumors are speculating that it may be a roller coaster, as EPCOT is the only park without one.

Much like the tribute video I shared earlier with the closing of The Great Movie Ride. Martin Smith from MartinsVidsDotNet, created a tribute video this past June. While only 66 minutes long, Martin brings us from its inception to the present. Please take a moment to check it out as we may not see anything like this again.
