Visit Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! for hilarious and chaotic adventures matched to vintage pop and rock songs

May 6, 2017 Theme Parks No Comments Email Email

Guests heading to Disneyland Resort in California in search of summer, fun and adventure will be able to join forces with Guardians of the Galaxy as this intergalactic crew attempts its own escape in the rockin’ and irreverent new attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! 

This popular gang of misfits is set to arrive at Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! in Disney California Adventure Park on 27th May 2017.  It will be the first Marvel-themed attraction to open at Disneyland Resort and will launch to the public just in time for summer in the U.S. and to celebrate the worldwide success of the film’s highly anticipated sequel ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2’, which was released across the globe last month. 

Whether guests know the quirky characters from Guardians of the Galaxy through comic books, animated television series or films, they have yet to step into their story – until now!   Guests can expect to come face to face with Groot for the first time in a Disney theme park, and discover some of his pals in live entertainment shows and heroic encounters.  Groot, Rocket, Star-Lord and the rest of the Guardians are cosmic adventurers who travel the galaxy to defend it from those who wish it harm.

The new attraction is a thrilling and hilarious adventure that blasts guests into the story of these characters with all-new visual and audio effects, plus the attraction’s own “awesome mix tape” of music inspired by the films’ soundtrack.

Guests will encounter Taneleer Tivan, a.k.a The Collector, keeper of the largest assemblage of fauna, relics and species from across the cosmos.  His unique collection can normally be found on the mining planet known as Knowhere… but now, he’s bringing it all to Disney California Adventure Park for a special exhibition, featuring his latest prize possessions: The Guardians of the Galaxy themselves!

They will experience multiple, random rides as Rocket, one of the galaxy’s most unusual heroes, enlists their help in a daring, chaotic and hilarious adventure to free the captive Guardians from The Collector’s Fortress.

Moviegoers know that Guardians of the Galaxy adventures are usually accompanied by vintage pop and rock songs from Star-Lord’s awesome mix tape.  So, when the new attraction launches, it’s natural that this breathtaking experience will unfold to its own musical accompaniment.  Six of them, in fact.

Each time guests board this new attraction, they will experience one of six randomised scenarios created by Disney Imagineers.  Each ride profile utilises the attraction’s hair-raising ascend-and-drop thrill, synchronised with a popular song from the ‘60s, ‘70s or early ‘80s.

1)       “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar (1980)

2)       “Give Up The Funk” by Parliament (1975)

3)       “Born To Be Wild” by Steppenwolf (1968)

4)       “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5 (1969)

5)       “Free Ride” by The Edgar Winter Group (1973)

6)       “Burning Love” by Elvis Presley (1972)

The multiple ride experiences are the result of extensive research, experimentation and ride testing by the creative team from Walt Disney Imagineering.  The Imagineering team worked from a list of nearly 100 fun, high-energy songs, winnowing the list to the final six as they boarded the attraction’s gantry lift, donned headsets, and played the different tracks to see which songs worked best with potential ride profiles.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT is the result of a collaboration between the creative minds behind the Marvel comic books, the films and Walt Disney Imagineering.

The quirky characters from the Guardians of the Galaxy will be just a few of the famous faces that guests will encounter during the US ‘Summer of Heroes’ at Disneyland Resort in California, and will be joined alongside the Avengers for all-new, epic adventures.
