The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror has always been one of the most popular rides at Disneyland California, and last year Disney revealed that it was going to get even better with an epic Marvel makeover! Fans have been eagerly anticipating the ride’s big reveal, and now the wait is finally over- Guardians of the Galaxy- Mission BREAKOUT is now open!
On Saturday 27th May, the stars and filmmakers from the Guardians of the Galaxy movies attended the official opening. Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Benicio Del Toro (The Collector), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Kevin Feige (President of Marvel Studios) and James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 Director) were just a few of the big names that got to put the exciting new ride to the test. Check out the video below to see what they thought...
If you’re a fan of the iconic Tower of Terror, don’t worry! The new Guardians of the Galaxy-inspired attraction, still features the surprise drop element and exhilarating free-fall sensation, but has been enhanced with some amazing new features and a Guardians of the Galaxy transformation. The exterior of the ride may appear bright and colourful, but be warned, what’s on the inside is anything but welcoming!
Those who are brave enough to step inside the evil Collector’s Fortress, will find an array of mysterious objects that he has acquired over the years. The latest addition to the collection, is the Guardians of the Galaxy gang, who he’s keeping captive in glass display cases over a deep, dark abyss! Rocket Raccoon has somehow managed to escape and he needs your help to rescue the rest of the Guardians.
If you’re up for the challenge, enter the rickety gantry lift and prepare to be launched into the Guardians of the Galaxy universe. You’ll fly up and down when you least expect it, to an adrenaline-pumping soundtrack. As music (and Star-Lord’s boom box!) is such an important part of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, music will of course be an important part of the ride. Listen out for popular 60s, 70s and 80s hits like “Born to be Wild”, “Burning Love”, “Free Ride” and “Give Up the Funk”, as you plummet through the air.
The attraction has a total of 6 randomised scenarios, meaning each time you ride, you’ll be able to enjoy a completely different experience, which is great for those who want to ride it over and over again! Are you ready to team up with Rocket and face the Collector?
That’s not all though, you’ll also get the chance to come face to face with the Guardians of the Galaxy heroes. Make sure you brush up on your dance moves, because Peter has his boom box out and is hosting- Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! This exciting new attraction will be a permanent feature at the park, so if you’re visiting, make sure you check it out.
