Attention kids and kids-at-heart! You can join Rocket Raccoon as he sets out to free his gang at Disney California Adventure Parkâ€™s new ride: â€śGuardians of the Galaxyâ€”Mission: BREAKOUT!â€ť The ride will open on May 27 at what used to be the much-loved Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
The former lobby of the spooky ride has been turned into a museum of The Collector, a character in the Marvel film and the keeper of the most impressive collection of souvenirsÂ and relics from across the universe. The rideâ€™s backstory goes that his towering, chaotic citadel hides his most prized treasureâ€”the Guardians of the Galaxy.
After Rocket sets himself free from The Collectorâ€™s clutches, he will enlist the help of the parkâ€™s guests to embark on an adventure-filled mission to free the other Guardians. The ride will feature astounding special effects, popular characters from the movie, music from its 70s-themed pop/rock soundtrack, and thrilling drops that Disney says will leave guests screaming their lungs out.
Guests can look forward to seeing props from Marvelâ€™s films and television shows inside the Collectorâ€™s museum, such as Rocketâ€™s gun and Asgardian weaponry.
