Marvel Studios blew everyone away in Hall H at Comic-Con, but in addition to a rundown of all their upcoming movies, they also shared an advance look at the first, ever Marvel theme park ride coming to Disney California Adventure next year. Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! will take over for the now-retired Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, re-imagining the elevator drop thrill ride into a journey through The Collector’s Vault… with the Guardians of the Galaxy alongside you on the journey.
Tower of Terror was a great ride, and I can already see how that dynamic will fit into what they have planned for the Guardians. This attraction sounds like it going to be a blast! Here’s more details about Mission: BREAKOUT!:
Debuting in summer 2017, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! will take Disney California Adventure park guests through the fortress-like museum of the mysterious Collector, who is keeping his newest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy, as prisoners. Guests will board a gantry lift which launches them into a daring adventure as they join Rocket Raccoon in an attempt to set free his fellow Guardians. The new attraction will transform the structure currently housing The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ into an epic new adventure, enhancing the breathtaking free fall sensation with new visual and audio effects to create a variety of ride experiences. Guests will experience multiple, random and unique ride profiles in which the rise and fall of the gantry lift rocks to the beat of music inspired by the film’s popular soundtrack.
