I am on a roll this week, another rumour that I reported on earlier this year was confirmed yesterday at Comic-Con and it seems that the Guardians of the Galaxy are coming to Disneyland!
Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT will be opening Summer 2017 and will be replacing beloved attraction The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
More on the new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction can be seen in the video below:
Disney has also revealed the story to the new attraction:
Deep inside his fortress-like collection, the mysterious Taneleer Tivan (aka The Collector) is displaying his newest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy. They are trapped in customized display cases, suspended over a vast abyss. Unbeknownst to their unscrupulous captor, the intrepid Rocket has escaped and is enlisting the Collector’s VIP guests for help. Guests board a gantry lift, which launches them into a chaotic and hilarious adventure as they join Rocket in an attempt to break his fellow Guardians out of captivity.
Check out some of the awesome looking concept art for this upcoming attraction:

It is sad to see a classic attraction to go but really encouraging to see the ride itself is remaining and seems to be just changing theming (though this looks to be quite an extensive redesign). Those of you that listen to the podcast will know that Guardians of the Galaxy is my favourite Marvel movie so I am personally really excited by this change, especially considering that Rocket looks to be the central character to the experience.
Tower of Tower will remain open as is until early 2017 so there is still plenty of time to ride before the changes begin to take form.
Disney has also said this is the first of many changes coming to Disney’s California Adventure Park in relation to Marvel, I am excited to see what announcements come next!
What are your thoughts on this change at Disney’s California Adventure Park, are you excited to see change or disappointed to see a favourite attraction remodelled?
