    Just announced at Comic-Con 2016.

    Guardians of the Galaxy Mission Breakout coming to Disney California Adventure in 2017.



    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.

    PRESS RELEASE:

    SAN DIEGO, Calif. (July 23, 2016) – The Guardians of the Galaxy are coming to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim.

    Beginning summer 2017, guests at Disney California Adventure Park will join in a daring confrontation with one of the most unusual characters in the park’s history: Tanaleer Tivan, the Collector. He has opened his unique collection of fauna, relics and species to guests for a special tour culminating with his latest prized possessions: the Guardians of the Galaxy, themselves! Fortunately, Rocket has a plan to free his friends – and that plan includes recruiting Disneyland Resort guests in a sensational rescue effort.

    This comically cosmic, rocking new adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! is the result of a collaboration between the creative minds behind the comic books, the films and Walt Disney Imagineering. The attraction will drop guests directly into the story alongside characters from the comic books and the blockbuster films.

    Joe Rohde, Portfolio Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering, is leading the project. He shared this preview of the new attraction: “The setting is a kind of fortress that’s owned by the mysterious Collector and it’s packed with creatures and his latest acquisitions from across the universe. Now he has imprisoned the Guardians of the Galaxy and they’re hanging in display cases over a giant abyss. The captor doesn’t know it but Rocket Raccoon has escaped and is enlisting our aid—all the guests—to help the Guardians in a breakout scheme. And the rest is comical chaos; a very funny, very irreverent story and a really wonderful addition to Disney California Adventure.”

    “It’s such a thrill to be working alongside a true visionary like Joe Rohde and the entire Walt Disney Imagineering team,” said Joe Quesada, Chief Creative Officer, Marvel. “Like our stories and characters, projects led by Joe are the stuff of legend, so Marvel fans rejoice! The universe couldn’t be in better hands! Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! is going to be an out of this world experience and what has me even more excited are Joe’s ‘secret’ plans for the future. We’re just getting warmed up.”

    The announcement was made today at San Diego Comic-Con by Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, who said: “The incredibly talented Disney Imagineering team has found a way to harness the spirit which drove Guardians of the Galaxy’s success to create this immersive experience. With its debut timed to the release of the film’s sequel, we are eager to present the attraction to the millions who visit Disney California Adventure and place them in the center of the action as they join in a mission alongside our audacious Guardians of the Galaxy team.”

    Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! takes place in the fortress-like museum of the mysterious Collector, who has trapped his newest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy. One member of the group, the intrepid Rocket, has escaped, and he calls upon brave visitors for help. Guests 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 new attraction will anchor a broader universe of Super Heroes that will grow over time in Disney California Adventure Park. Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! will transform the structure currently housing The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ into an epic new adventure, enhancing the breathtaking free fall sensation with new visual and audio effects to create a variety of ride experiences. Guests will experience multiple, random and unique ride profiles in which the rise and fall of the gantry lift rocks to the beat of music inspired by the film’s popular soundtrack.

    Fans of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror will want to experience the attraction from now until its final “drop day,” which will be celebrated in true Disney fashion in early January.

    As long as it doesn't touch WDW, the one in DCA is inferior anyway. And who knows, it could be great.

    The timeline shifted, perhaps they realized it didn't make sense to have this ride offline for Christmas and more importantly Halloween.

    That actually sounds really cool, but how are they planning on making the building look that in only a couple of months when it took years to do the frozen layover?

    Terrible. Just terrible. I wonder if the rumor of the boos at the announcement are true.

    Exterior work will begin soon, well before the ride actually closes.

    Straight from the horses' mouth.

    I have to admit, I was expecting it to be a bit more subtle on the exterior. They are going all in though. Makes me wonder how things will blend when it is all said and done. Lots of confirmation in that release that there is clearly more coming like Mice Age has claimed.

    I don't know for sure, but I kinda doubt that a room full of Marvel fans boo'd this. Probably why they did it there.

    Ah, that makes sense.

    I have no problem with them doing this in California. Their version is only half of what the version is in Florida. This actually sounds really fun.

    I have little love for TOT at DCA. It's ugly and cheap looking and the ride experience isn't particularly great or interesting. It doesn't hold a candle to the one at DHS, and the TDS incarnation is superior to it as well. DCA and WDS got the short end of the TOT stick for sure.

    The new attraction sounds fun and more repeatable. I hope they keep some of the creep factor involved, as TOT is DCA's only "spooky" attraction. The exterior looks elaborate and so does the interior concept art. This is about the best case scenario for a permanent overlay that I can envision. Rohde is great at his job, and he won't leave any stones unturned, even on an overlay. Very much looking forward to the other attractions that will be announced in the future.

    Good lord. The name even sucks. Mission Breakout? They picked a nice cheesy name to go with this crappy idea.
