Ellen’s Energy Adventure ride at the Universe of Energy at Epcot had its final day of operation on Aug. 13, 2017. This is the final ride. The ride broke down in the dinosaur section and guests were evacuated. Instead of following the cast member out, they decided to explore and the cast allowed it.
The Universe of Energy is an original pavilion from EPCOT Center, opening in 1982 and moderately updated to Ellen’s Energy Adventure in 1996. While the 1996 refurbishment changed the music and most film portions of the ride, it otherwise has remained very similar to the original attraction and has been enjoyed by Epcot guests for nearly 34 years now. Barring some unforeseen complications, it is likely the building will be gutted or demolished and replaced with a Guardians of the Galaxy attraction.
