Those who visit Disney California Adventure Park will encounter the latest attraction at the theme park: Guardians of the Galaxy– Mission: BREAKOUT! This is the ride was formerly the Tower of Terror ride. Guests join Rocket in his attempt to bust his pals out of the Collector’s Fortress.

“It’s going to be a thrilling summer at the Disneyland Resort,” David Duffy, Director, Creative Entertainment, says in a press release to announce the super changes. “You can celebrate the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission BREAKOUT! and join forces with legendary Super Heroes. You can find out if you have what it takes to join the Avengers. It’s all part of the adventure with Summer of Heroes.”

Other elements of the Summer of Heroes includes:

▪ Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off!: Star-Lord fires up his boom box to give park guests a chance to show off their dance moves.

▪ Avengers Training Initiative: Black Widow and Hawkeye test young recruits to see if they have what it takes to join the Avengers.
