‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ ride coming to Disneyland

It’s official: Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is coming to Disneyland in California.

During Comic-Con on Saturday, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced “Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!”

The ride will replace Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which will close for good in January. The elevator ride is based on the classic TV show, The Twilight Zone.


The elevator’s free fall will remain, but everything else will be completely overhauled. New visual and audio effects will be added, Disney representative said.

Disney’s official parks blog also released artist rendering of what the attraction could look like.

This will mark the first time Disney has incorporated characters from the Marvel universe into the theme parks.

Fan Reaction

For months, rumors circulated that the beloved Tower of Terror attraction would be replaced at the park.

However, many Disney fans did not take the news well, even expressing outrage on social media.

“Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!” is set to open at Disney California Adventure Park summer 2017.
