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.
Ellen’s Energy Adventure
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.
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.
Ellen’s Energy Adventure and Original Universe of Energy Tribute
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.
