It's a Summer of Heroes at Disney California Adventure Park
Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission – BREAKOUT!
The newest attraction to open this summer celebrating the Summer of Heroes at Disney California Adventure is one you can't miss, the Collector’s imposing Fortress which looms over the skyline at Disney California Adventure at 183 Terran (Earth) feet high and houses the all-new, thrilling attraction Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!
Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! features more than 2,200 props from and inspired by the Super Hero universe and six ride profiles, each paired with a pop song inspired by the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films’ soundtracks. As you enter the fortress, an 8-foot-tall, gilded statue of The Collector, Taneleer Tivan, greets you. Tivan’s Oasis, also known as the “Gardens of the Galaxy,” features nearly 60 plant species with shrubs, trees and potted plants decorating the attraction queue.
Before the action begins, you will have to raise their hands and submit to a “bio scan” if they you to enter The Collector’s private office. It’s the only way to gain clearance to view the amazing collection of Guardians on display, and the first step to joining Rocket’s escape plan.
With its high-energy, surprising visuals and hilarious, thrill-a-minute action, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! has been an instant hit with Disney California Adventure guests. Mere weeks since its opening on May 27, the attraction has become the highest-rated thrill ride in all of the Disneyland Resort as guests immerse themselves in the chaotic world of The Collector, Rocket, and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Kids can get their groove on and experience even more cosmic fun as they take the (dance) floor with the Guardians of the Galaxy: Star-Lord and Gamora in the epic “Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance-Off.” Classic songs blasted from Star-Lord’s boom box will inspire some friendly dance competition complete with fun team names including “Team Pop,” “Team Lock,” “Team Rock” and “Team Roll.”
