in Disney, Disney's California Adventure, Disneyland Resort, Entertainment, Marvel, Theme Parks

The Summer of Heroes is fast approaching at Disneyland Resort, with the new Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction nearing completion. The ride has replaced the former Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in the Hollywood Land section of Disney California Adventure park, with the 1930s-themed Hollywood Tower Hotel transformed into the futuristic fortress of the Collector character from Marvel Comics.

Today Disneyland released its first official images of the now fully-unveiled facade for the Guardians of the Galaxy ride, which will utilize the same accelerated drop tower mechanics as the Tower of Terror to take guests on a thrilling escape mission with the help of Rocket Raccoon and his band of unlikely adventurers.

Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission: BREAKOUT! (April 20, 2017) — The glimmering exterior of The Collector’s imposing Fortress looms over the skyline at Disney California Adventure Park. The all-new attraction Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission: BREAKOUT! debuts May 27, 2017 at Disney California Adventure. Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission: BREAKOUT! will take guests through the fortress of The Collector, who is keeping his newest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy, as prisoners. Guests will board a gantry lift which launches them into a daring adventure as they join Rocket in an attempt to set free his fellow Guardians. The epic new adventure blasts guests straight into the “Guardians of the Galaxy” story for the first time, alongside characters from the blockbuster films and comics. As guests join Rocket in his attempt to bust his pals out of The Collector’s Fortress, they will experience randomized ride experiences complete with new visual and audio effects and music inspired by the popular film soundtracks.

    Just hideous. Such a gaudy eyesore.

    Good. I’m glad it’s done.

    I have been watching this emerge during the rehab and it is OK when seen on its own. But you can see it, from the hub, looming behind the Carter Circle theater restaurant which immediately takes you out of the look and feeling of the 1930s Hollywood setting that the park entry and Hollywood areas are supposed to evoke. It is a very harsh contrast.

      My comment said Carthay Circle before spell check got a hold of it as it posted. :-/
