Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: Breakout! to Launch Summer of Heroes at Disney California Adventure Park
San Diego Comic Con 2016 broke the news that Disney California Adventure’s iconic drop ride — The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror — would be replaced with a Guardians of the Galaxy re-theme, with the Tower’s creepy, old Hollywood hotel facade being done away with in favor of an adaptation of the hit Marvel Studios property (Disney’s first domestic Marvel attraction). Disney unveiled a sneak-peek look at the upcoming attraction this past October.
As you help Rocket bust his pals out of the Collector’s Fortress, you will experience randomized ride experiences complete with all-new visual and audio effects and music inspired by the popular film soundtracks. You never know which adventure you will get!
The Disney Parks Blog officially announced Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: Breakout! for a May 27th opening day, just weeks after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens nationwide on May 5th. The new ride will launch Disney California Adventure Park’s Summer of Heroes, a limited-time celebration that will give guests the unique opportunity of joining the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy for all-new, year-round experiences, including:
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off! – Don’t be surprised if you run into the Guardians of the Galaxy on their way to the Milano, with Star-Lord firing up his old-school boom box to get the party started. Gamora may prefer to stand back and observe, but everyone else is bound to get in the groove and show off their moves during this awesome rock ‘n’ roll bash!
- Super Hero Encounters – For the first time, citizens of Earth will come face-to-face with Groot, one of the Guardians of the Galaxy! You can also step up to meet the First Avenger, Captain America, along with everyone’s favorite web slinger, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
And for a limited time, step up to the challenge with new adventures during Summer of Heroes:
- Avengers Training Initiative – Black Widow and Hawkeye assemble young recruits for a series of tests to see if they have what it takes to join the ranks of the Avengers.
- Heroic Encounter: Black Widow – Black Widow will arrive on the scene several times throughout the day in an armored Avengers vehicle for her heroic encounter with park guests.
- Grab a Piece (or Bite) of the Action – All that heroism making you hungry? Want a token as proof of your adventures when you get home? Special themed merchandise and food will be available throughout Hollywood Land.
Summer of Heroes runs May 27th — September 10th at Disney California Adventure Park located across from Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. #HeroUp
