The main event happening this summer at the Disneyland California Resort is the re-opening of what was formerly the Tower of Terror attraction in its new reincarnation as the Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! ride. This new attraction will open in the California Adventure Park on the 27th May, 2017 and will take guests on a ‘Rockin’ Free-Fall Adventure’!
This iconic ride has had a superhero makeover to be transformed into the Collector’s Fortress, where our heroes The Guardians of the Galaxy are being held captive by the evil Collector. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to locate the Guardians and liberate them from their glass prison – which just so happens to be hanging over an ominous abyss! Luckily, you’re not in this mission alone; sassy racoon Rocket has escaped and is on hand to guide you round the weird and wonderful artefacts that make up the Collectors Fortress before you embark on a harrowing adventure of intergalactic mayhem.
Guardians fans will be happy to know the whole thing will be set to Star Lord’s iconic mixtape, along with all-new special effects, popular characters and of course, those epic drops you’ll be accustomed to if you’ve ever ridden the Tower of Terror at any of the Disney parks.
Alongside this exciting new ride opening, the Disney California Adventure Parks will also be running an awesome Summer of Heroes event. One attraction included is the Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off, where Star Lord and Gamora lead the way in a dance off to Peter Quill’s beloved mixtape. Make sure you keep an eye out for Groot at this attraction too!
Aspiring Super Heroes will want to check out the Avengers Training Initiative, where they’ll be mentored by Hawkeye and Black Widow to hone their secret super powers. This attraction is suitable for children ages 4-12. For everyone, there’s the chance to meet your favourite Super Heroes as Spiderman and Captain America are on the look-out for new Super Hero friends to hang out with.
Over at the Collector’s Warehouse, you’ll find Guardians of the Galaxy goods and treasures from all over the galaxy which the evil Collector has acquired on his travels. Or, at the Studio Store, you can pick up a range of super hero goodies to take home with you.
