The opening of the new ride will be part of Disney California Adventure’s Summer of Heroes, which runs from May 27 through Sept. 10. The highlight of the events will be the opening of the Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction, completing the transformation from the original Tower of Terror.
The Summer of Heroes will be a celebration of superheroes that features new attractions, events and rides, including Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off!; the Avengers Training Initiative; Heroic Encounter: Black Widow; and specially themed merchandise and food available throughout Hollywood Land.
Also, guests will be able to interact with many of their favorite Marvel characters, including Groot, Captain America, Spider-Man and many more.
“It’s going to be a thrilling summer at the Disneyland Resort. You can celebrate the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission BREAKOUT! and join forces with legendary Super Heroes,” Disney creative entertainment director David Duffy said in a statement. “You can choose an awesome encounter with Star-Lord, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Hawkeye or Captain America, step up to meet Groot for the first time, and find out if you have what it takes to join the Avengers. It’s all part of the adventure with Summer of Heroes.”
