Guardians of the Galaxy ride coming to Disney’s California Adventure Park


Disney’s California Adventure Park is getting a new attraction based on the Marvel Comics superhero team Guardians of the Galaxy.

Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: Breakout!, due to open in 2017, will replace Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. 

Disney said it will “transform the structure into an epic new adventure, enhancing the breathtaking free fall sensation with new visual and audio effects to create a variety of ride experiences. Guests will experience multiple, random and unique ride profiles in which the rise and fall of the gantry lift rocks to the beat of music inspired by the film’s popular soundtrack.”

The ride’s opening is timed to the release of the film sequel of “Guardians of the Galaxy.” The first film came out in 2014.

Disney said the Guardians attraction “will drop guests directly into the story alongside characters from the comic books and the blockbuster films.”

In the coming years, guests can expect a greater Marvel Comics presence at California Adventure Park. “The new attraction will anchor a broader universe of superheroes that will grow over time,” Disney said. Disney acquired Marvel Entertainment in 2009 for $4 billion.

The Tower of Terror will close sometime in early January.
