Well, i promised you that i will be back if there was anything big announced before i came back from Shanghai, sure i was that it shouldn't happen ...and i was wrong, as today at Comic Con Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced the rumored Guardians Of Galaxy "Mission Break-out" ride! So, i keep my promise and i'm back for a "D&M Special" article about this new GoG ride!
WDI Imagineer Joe Rhode tell us more about this new ride in the video below, a new attraction that will change forever the Tower of Terror ride at DCA, but here is the official release with renderings. And as you'll see on the one above showing the new exterior of the Tower of Terror some radical changes in its design will happen. which also mean for all Twilight Zone Tower of Terror fans that there probably will not be any turning back to the TOT in the future, i'm sorry to say... And now here is the press release, artworks and Joe Rhode presentation video:
Beginning in summer 2017, the outrageous and irreverent gang will appear in Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! – a comically high-energy, rocking new adventure. Guests will be right in the mix with characters from the blockbuster “Guardians of the Galaxy” films. 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.
The new attraction will anchor a broader universe of Super Heroes that will grow over time at Disney California Adventure park. This exciting new presence will transform the structure currently housing The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ (scheduled to close in early 2017) into an epic new adventure, enhancing the breathtaking free fall sensation with all-new visual and audio effects to create a variety of ride experiences. Guests will experience multiple random, unique ride profiles in which the rise and fall of the gantry lift will rock to the beat of music inspired by the film’s popular soundtrack.
Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! opens summer 2017 at Disney California Adventure park. And now, don't miss WDI Imagineer Joe Rhode presentation in the video below!
