Disney’s new Guardians of the Galaxy ride opens in May
Goodbye Tower of Terror though
As we reported earlier this year, Disney has taken away the “Tower of Terror” to make room for a gigantic new “Guardians of the Galaxy” attraction. Now the ride is finished, and fans of the franchise can attend opening day this May.
The new attraction will open in Disney California Adventure Park, and it is called “Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission: BREAKOUT!”. Fans will answer the call to join legendary Super Heroes in all-new experiences for the “Summer of Heroes” event, starting May 27 and running through Sept. 10.
Summer of Heroes inaugurates an ever-expanding universe of Super Hero stories at Disney California Adventure that will become even bigger over time. Guests in the park’s Hollywood Land will join some favorite Super Heroes for all-new, epic experiences for a limited time, and beginning May 27 they will encounter the intrigue and triumph of the new, year-round attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission: BREAKOUT!
Guardians of the Galaxy-Mission: BREAKOUT! debuts May 27, 2017, taking guests at Disney California Adventure park through the fortress-like museum of the mysterious Collector. Guests will join a daring adventure with Rocket Raccoon in an attempt to set free his fellow Guardians.
The epic new adventure takes guests straight into the “Guardians of the Galaxy” story for the first time with all-new effects and randomized ride experiences.
“It’s going to be a thrilling summer at the Disneyland Resort,” said David Duffy, Director, Creative Entertainment. “You can celebrate the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission: BREAKOUT! and join forces with legendary Super Heroes. You can choose an awesome encounter with Star-Lord, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Hawkeye or Captain America, step up to meet Groot for the first time, and find out if you have what it takes to join the Avengers. It’s all part of the adventure with Summer of Heroes.”
The Summer of Heroes will launch new, year-round experiences, along with new Super Hero Encounters. For the first time, citizens of Earth will come face-to-face with tree-of-few-words Groot. They may also encounter the First Avenger, Captain America, and everyone’s favorite web slinger, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. There will also be an Avengers Training Initiative, there 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. Black Widow will arrive on the scene several times throughout the day in an armored Avengers vehicle for her heroic encounter with park guests.
