Over the weekend, a huge announcement was made at the annual San Diego Comic-Con event. The President of Marvel Studios (Kevin Feige) revealed that the popular Tower of Terror attraction at the Disneyland California park is set to undergo an exciting transformation, evolving the current ride into an all-new attraction called “Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission BREAKOUT”! There’s not long to wait for this ‘Marvel-lous’ makeover either, with the newly refurbished ride planned to launch during summer 2017 (Tower of Terror will close in January).
If you’re not familiar with the Guardians of the Galaxy, the story revolves around the escapades of a group of space adventurers on a mission to protect the universe. Led by Peter Quill (or Star Lord as he’d prefer to be called) the team is eccentric to say the least! Made up of gun wielding racoon Rocket, tree-like humanoid Groot and the deadly superhuman Gamora, the quartet must work together to defeat the evil Ronan, who is after the mystical orb in Peter’s possession.
If you’re a Tower of Terror fan (who isn’t?) don’t worry, you’ll still be able to get your adrenaline fix as the exhilarating elevator drops you know and love will remain. The rest of the ride will be enhanced, with a brand new story, design and lively “rocking” experience. Venture deep into the fortress of the mysterious Taneleer Tivan, also known as The Collector, who is keeping the Guardians of the Galaxy captive. What he doesn’t know, is that Rocket has escaped and he’s looking for your help to try and save the rest of the gang!
The current hotel design will become a “warehouse, fortress power plant” which acts as The Collector’s dingy lair. Enter at your own risk and you’ll find the Guardians of the Galaxy trapped in display cases dangling over a dark abyss. Join Rocket as you board the lift and enter a world of darkness. What comes next is a mystery, and we can’t wait to find out what The Collector has in store! Familiar music from the up-tempo movie soundtrack will be playing throughout and is sure to get your heart racing as you rise and fall to the beat of the erratic tracks!
