Last year, Disney announced plans to transform the iconic Tower of Terror ride at their California Adventure Park, into an all-new attraction inspired by Guardians of the Galaxy. The blockbuster movie and its famous characters will come to life at the park in just a few months, when the ride officially opens on 27th May! That’s not all though, Disney have also revealed plans to host ‘Summer of Heroes’ which will allow guests to “join forces with legendary super heroes”.
Guardians of the Galaxy- Mission: BREAKOUT is set to become the park’s new must-try ride. Promising to blast guests right into the middle of the action, the attraction will be “a comically high-energy, rocking new adventure”. You’ll come face to face with the characters you’ve seen in the films and comics as you venture deep into the Collector’s creepy fortress. He’s keeping the Guardians of the Galaxy gang captive, suspended in the air high above a dark abyss. It’s down to you and Rocket Raccoon to help them escape!
There will be brand new audio and visual effects, and music inspired by the film’s soundtrack will be pumping through the speakers to get your heart racing. While the Guardians of the Galaxy makeover will totally transform the Tower of Terror, fans of the classic will be pleased to know that the most thrilling element of the ride will remain- the unexpected and exhilarating drops! This is definitely the kind of attraction you’ll want to ride over and over again, and the randomised ride effects will mean you can enjoy a different experience each time.
The opening of Guardians of the Galaxy- Mission: BREAKOUT will kick start the ‘Summer of Heroes’ at Disney’s California Adventure park. The limited time celebration will be dedicated to super heroes, offering guests a host of new and exciting experiences. The Guardians of the Galaxy and the Avengers unite, to make your visit an action-packed adventure! You’ll be able to meet your heroes in a series of super hero encounters featuring the likes of Spider-Man, Captain America, and for the first time ever, star of Guardians of the Galaxy- Groot. Make sure you practise your best dance moves and get ready for a party like no other, at the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off!’. This rock ‘n’ roll party has plenty of super hero guests, so keep a look out.
The good news is, these two experiences are here to stay, and will become year-round park experiences! If you’re visiting during ‘Summer of Heroes’ though (27th May-10th September), you’ll be able to enjoy some amazing limited time only attractions. Here’s what you can expect…
Avengers Training Initiative- Black Widow and Hawkeye are in search of new recruits to join the ranks of the Avengers. Young super heroes can go through a series of tests to see if they’ve got what it takes.
Heroic Encounter: Black Widow- Black Widow will make several surprise appearances throughout the day, and you won’t want to miss it. Watch in awe as she races through the streets in an armoured Avengers vehicle before greeting guests.
Grab a piece of the action- There will be plenty of exclusive souvenirs and themed snacks available, so make sure you check them out and find a memento to take home.
