Disney has revealed that the "Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!" theme park attraction will open May 27 at Disney California Adventure Park.
Announced last year, the attraction will replace the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror with the Collector's Fortress from the "Guardians of the Galaxy" film. In a report from Marvel.com, Disney revealed that the ride will include randomized visual and audio effects inspired by the film's soundtrack.
The attraction launches alongside the park's limited-time "Summer of Heroes" celebration, running May 27 through September 10. The event will also debut a number of Marvel-themed experiences, as detailed below:
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off!: Don’t be surprised if you run into the Guardians of the Galaxy on their way to the Milano, with Star-Lord firing up his old-school boom box to get the party started. Gamora may prefer to stand back and observe, but everyone else is bound to get in the groove and show off their moves during this awesome rock ‘n’ roll bash!
- Super Hero Encounters: For the first time, citizens of Earth will come face-to-face with Groot, one of the Guardians of the Galaxy! You can also step up to meet the First Avenger, Captain America, along with everyone’s favorite web slinger, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
- Avengers Training Initiative: 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.
- Heroic Encounter: Black Widow: Black Widow will arrive on the scene several times throughout the day in an armored Avengers vehicle for her heroic encounter with park guests.
- Grab a Piece (or Bite) of the Action: All that heroism making you hungry? Want a token as proof of your adventures when you get home? Special themed merchandise and food will be available throughout Hollywood Land.
The ride's grand debut is conveniently timed, as "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is set to release May 5. The film is written and directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, and Kurt Russell.
